The pleated skirt is on trend for this winter season and has a back-to-school feel. This time its no longer a tennis gym skirt however; instead pleated skirts have been upgraded in luxe shimmer, leather fabrics with fabric mixing, sheer inserts and buckles to finish the garment off. On the catwalks designers teamed the pleated skirts with a seventies punk feel with shirts and statement necklaces, this can easily be achieved on a high street budget. Look to Topshop & Zara who have translated these ideas perfectly from the Saint Laurent and Christian Dior shows.
Here I have picked out items that I would wear for work or even for a casual night out with acid wash band tees, silver shimmer pleated skirt and a pair of patent black ankle boots. All the items I have chosen you could mix and match, I really feel my wardrobe this autumn will also reflect this look. My favourite pleated skirt is the one from Zara with the silver shimmer effect, I would wear it with the leopard print boots and the Mango acid wash vest. Let me know your thoughts on this trend, is it something you will be buying into?
