How to Wear A Pleated Midi Skirt

I really love a pleated midi skirt! I have two in my closet and it’s my go-to item when I don’t know what to wear. As I’ve been helping and suggesting styles for family photos, the pleated midi skirt is one I often suggest. It’s feminine, flattering, pairs with so many different tops, and they are so comfortable {most have an elastic waist band}.

When many women see this skirt, they instantly think of dressing it up or for work attire only. While this skirt is great to dress up, it’s also great for casual wear. I’ll show you how!

I have had this beautiful navy blue pleated midi skirt in my closet for years. It’s a different brand than this one I have linked, but they look identical. The fabric and color of this particular skirt are so unique and rich-looking. I love pairing it with both light and dark colors. It is so versatile.

This style of skirt is very easily dressed up with heels and a simple top as seen here. The most flattering way to wear this style of skirt is to show the waistband, tuck something in!

Tucking in a top, showing your waist is most flattering when wearing a pleated midi skirt. Classic heels really dress up this skirt.

Looking for a cute casual look to create with this skirt? This is a favorite way to wear this skirt, with a tee-shirt and sneakers. Lunch, brunch or a day of shopping is perfect with this skirt.

Maybe a little front knot isn’t your thing – but tuck in your top to show your waist – a front tuck would work too.

A button-down shirt tied or tucked in is also a great way to wear a pleated midi! Perfect for work or casual.

For the perfect going out to dinner, or girls night look, pair the pleated midi with a v-neck top and layer over your favorite leather or moto jacket.

In fall and winter, I love throwing on a chunky sweater and doing a little front tuck for a cozy look. This particular color of the skirt looks great with a camel color. Don’t you think? Pair this outfit with some tall boots and you are looking so stylish – fall photos, anyone?!

Here are some of my favorite pleated midi skirts available right now. That camel-colored faux leather is so LOVELY!
