Short pleated skirts were made for Summer. When I was a teen, I only wore black pencil skirts. I was a girlie tomboy (I basically dressed like a boy but wore makeup), so if I had to dress up, It was typically a black skirt and a black or white top. Thankfully, my style started to evolve once I reached high school, and now I like to wear all types of styles, especially pleated skirts. They’re so versatile, and you can style them so many ways.
I found this fun little skirt (in black too!) back when I was working at Banana Republic and they’ve been one of my all-time favorite purchases. They’re very light weight and lined, so they’re perfect for when it’s super hot out; I can dress them up when needed (for work or church), but I can also throw on a graphic tee and flat sandals and be good for a casual but cute day as well.
I live for pieces like this and if I can find some more colors, I will be adding those in as well. When something works for you, it just works!
Do you own any pleated skirts?
