IS IT WORTH ADDING A PLEATED SKIRT TO YOUR CLOSET?…

Every now and then I see an item and fall completely in love with it. While playing tourist in another city, I nipped into Primark for something particular, but as soon as this PU pleated skirt caught my eyes, my whole plans went out the window. With a price tag below ten pounds, I was sold. I didn’t even bother to try it on. Ha!! This skirt is something different, but oh-so perfect for the classic side of my closet. When it comes to anything faux leather or PU, I hate when it is too shiny. It takes the quality of the piece away. The faux leather quality of this skirt is great with the right amount of sheen. The olive (or military) green colour is also wonderful. Overall, I’m happy with this purchase and yes, a pleated skirt is worth having in a lady’s closet. I can see myself getting a lot of wears out of this. Dressed down or up, it’s sure to be stylish.

Keeping it simple, but with a touch of sophistication, I paired the pleated skirt with an old two-toned shirt which is also from Primark. It is a lovely number and I’m proud of myself for taking good care of it (Lol!). Tied the look together with a classic black ladies bag and this sexy laced-up heels from New Look. This heel turned out to be one of the most comfortable shoes ever. I need to give y’all a close look of it the next time I style it.

What y’all think of this skirt and the look? Do you owe a pleated skirt?

    I love pleated skirts! I had an hourglass dress, the top was simple and the skirt was pleated in faux leather, I loved it <3 It's a pity, I had to give it away 'cause it didn't fit me so well anymore :/ but I'm thinking of buying a pleated skirt for next Spring 🙂 xoxo

    I’m trying to find the perfect pleated skirt. I want a sort of midi length one but I’ve not found one which is the perfect length yet. Your pleated skirt suits you just perfectly 🙂 xo Sarah

    You look so pretty in pleats. I always admire pleated skirts on the gram but don’t own one. Love how you styled the military green colored skirt with the feminine blouse. So chic.

    I love pleated skirts, but they are really high maintenance. I took one traveling and it was great, but coming home the pleats got ruined in my suitcase. Have been meaning to take it to the drycleaner but keep forgetting, so thanks for the reminder! I do love the skirt though, it’s just a little annoying sometimes!

      I do agree with you, Sonia, but not all pleats. Some pleats are stiff so no matter what they stay in place.
      Glad this post could be of help. Thanks much for the contribution. 🙂
