Styling Tips: Pleated Maxi

When I think long pleated skirt I think dressy. However, there’s just something so relaxing about pairing a loose-fitted top with a long pleated skirt. The two are total opposites but when styled together – they make the perfect match. Today I’m sharing with you some how to style tips if you’re into this relaxed trend.

YAS Tips

Pleated Maxi Skirt: I prefer a long pleated skirt that is of course – floor length 💁🏾. The pleats are fun, flirty & easy to style up or down and adds more YASSS to your outfit.

Pullover: When shopping for a pullover the possibilities are endless. You can go with textured, fluid or oversized pullover thats either t chunky or thin-material. When it comes to the neckline it’s totally up to your preference. High-low styles (longer in the back, shorter in the front) work best (in my opinion) because they add a little structure to the slouchy effect and make the semi-tucking look more flattering and less bulky.

Shoes: My favorite styles for a look like this are with platform heels pumps or heeled sandal. Tall boots with heels can be great too. This will keep your skirt from dragging. If comfort is key for you, try pairing with cute pointy-toe flats/loafers or a pair of your fav sneakers. Oh, be sure your skirt is hemmed!

Accessories: I’m all for the minimalist look so I say keep the accessories to a minimum. Simply add a cute statement bag, sunglasses and/or piece of dainty jewelry.
