The best thing about your pleated skirt is that it can be worn day or night. If you choose a colourful pleated skirt in pink, orange, red or green, you can choose to keep it simple with pointy toe pumps for the office or with an updated ankle strap shoe. You can always wear the skirt in the evening for fun with lace stockings and black shoe boots. Add a striped top to be a bit more playful for another daytime look for fun! There are many options for this wonderful skirt silhouette.
Another plus about a pleated skirt is you can make it office-appropriate with a silk blouse, blazer, and pointy-toe pumps, then amp things up for evening with a leather jacket and hot pair of heels.
Concerned about colour choice? If you're more of a classic, no-fuss kind of girl, stick to a pleated skirt in a go-with-everything shade like white, cream, or black — this will look totally timeless and make it easy for you to jazz it up with a printed blouse or colourful accessories. If you're into brighter hues, you can go for a skirt in a fun colour like hot pink, teal, or yellow — just make sure you temper the bold shade with a neutral top.
Don't be afraid to rock your pleats with a striped tee (stripes are pretty much a neutral, as far as we're concerned) — even though the lines may be going in different directions, it'll result in an effortless, I-just-threw-this-on Parisian look. In the same vein, a pleated skirt with ballerina flats looks très chic as well.
