Give pleats a chance. That’s one thing I want you all to think about this Spring. I was pretty adamant that I would/could not wear this style of skirts. However, it’s all about the shape of the skirt and how it lays and forms around your body that makes it flattering or frumpy. Even though the style of skirt may be similar, the shape is not. I was actually surprised at how flattering this skirt was on me but, it’s all about the shape. First, the pleats are not too wide and this narrowness makes them fall flatter. You’ll notice at the bottom the skirt doesn’t come in, instead it flares out a bit. This flare is very flattering on most body types. The elastic waste band makes it so I can wear it higher, or lower on my hips depending what I pair with it. Add a crisp white shirt and denim jacket and this skirt becomes more casual than dressy.
Here are some feminine skirts you can wear year round. Give the pleats a try ladies!
