More pleats please! We can't get enough of pleated midi skirts this season - from box pleats to car wash pleats, we'll take them all.
50s fashion is all about that striking proportion, and pleated midi skirts are one of our favourite ways to get that iconic silhouette. From neat preppy pleats in fresh block colours to monochrome polka dots and decorative floral prints, pleated midi skirts ooze a sense of demure sophistication we just love. Worn with fitted blouses, patterned vests, bodysuits or cropped thin-knit cardigans, the pleated midi skirt is our idea of vintage-inspired heaven.
Choose pleated midis featuring dramatic tulle underlayers to take advantage of that exaggerated silhouette. Team with block heel sandals for a contemporary feel, or pair with a slogan tee for some ultra-current edge. Pleated midi skirts typically feature defined waists so accessorise with thin leather belts to highlight your nipped-in waistline and finish with some peep-toe heels. Look for pleated midi skirts in pastel hues with a brocade finish for a beautifully feminine piece that will suit weddings and formal events.
