When you hear "pleated skirt", you think: school uniform miniskirt, bourgeois lady in its midday version, or long gipsy skirt?
Sweep away the clichés with this trendy garment: make the right associations for a top look, and dare bohemian chic!
How to wear a pleated skirt ? Here are a few tips:
Are you round, small, or tall? Bet it all on the pleated skirt! Adapted to all morphologies, its cut will balance your silhouette:
Your skirt is the central piece of your outfit: length, materials, colours, anything goes!
What length? The trend is for a midday skirt, below the knees and above the ankle. But mini or maxi, that works too!
Which cut? Straight for elegance, slit or asymmetrical to destructure.
Which top? A loose sweater or a t-shirt that you tuck into the skirt to mark the waist, or even a crop top.
Which shoes? Rangers for a rocking touch, high boots with heels, ballerinas or pumps, depending on the style you want to create. White sneakers are still very trendy.
Which tights? Go for fancy tights or fishnet tights; the opaque will be too strict.
Which material? Light fabric in the summer, thick when it's cool: dare to use imitation leather! In winter, gold, silver or bronze lamé will make an impression.
Romantic, feminine and casual, the bohemian look is timeless. The long skirt is the emblematic piece.
Prefer flowing fabrics, ample cuts, natural or pastel tones, discreet floral prints, or ethnic motifs. The key to this look: comfort!
To avoid the hippie retro look, add some sophisticated elements to your outfit for a boho-chic look. Without excess, so as not to come close to disguise, it's best to go by touches. Combine a worked piece with a basic element, for example. Take inspiration from our bohemian tops to find the perfect combination top / pleated skirt.
For an everyday gipsy look: wear flat shoes, a loose top or sweater tucked into the skirt, and a short denim jacket.
At the office, the skirt will be long (but not too long!), the blouse or blouse sober, combined with a perfecto, and boots or pumps.
On holiday, the emphasis will be on lightness: flowing, vaporous skirt, let loose on the prints! Combined with a lace or white crochet top and flat sandals.
You'll be right on theme with your pleated skirt!
Choose from soft or bright natural colours, patterned or plain!
Wear it with a pretty lace top and a perfecto jacket.
For shoes: flat or heeled sandals, spartan, or suede boots depending on the season.
Allow yourself a few fancy touches (accessories, jewellery).
So, do you want to combine comfort, femininity and elegance? Adopt the pleated skirt!
