HOW TO WEAR A PLEATED SKIRT OVER 40
Loved by style mavens around the globe, the pleated midi skirt remains on the top of the must-have style list this season.
Combining classic style and femininity, this style-star is the perfect addition to your winter wardrobe for both day and night.
In metallic finishes or printed chiffons, in prints or plains, with heels or flats, there is an option that works for every wardrobe and occasion.
Here are five tips for wearing a pleated midi skirt this winter:
METALLICS + KNITS
For day or night, metallics and knits is the perfect style duo. Opt for a slouchy knit for the ultimate in style and comfort.
ADD A JACKET
The pleated midi is highly versatile and pairs perfectly with a sharply tailored blazer, biker jacket or a fashion-forward bomber.
If metallics are not your thing, opt for feminine chiffon. Pretty prints are a huge winter trend, or for an edgier look, animal print is the perfect choice.
Are your weekends super busy? Pair your midi with sneakers or flats for the ultimate in comfy style.
THE RIGHT LENGTH
If you’re petite in statue, choose a skirt with less volume in a softer fabric. A tonal colour-way is also more flattering.
