Styling pleated midi skirts in Springtime

For me a pleated skirt is a complete staple in my wardrobe. Come Spring I am the first to throw on one for a smarter alternative to jeans. Within my wardrobe I probably own about 5 or 6 midi pleated skirts, which may be a tad excessive, (okay very excessive) but it's always good to have variety - it is the spice of life! 

I thought given my large collection and love for them as a staple in my wardrobe I would write up a little post. Read on to see my tips for styling them in the Spring;


  • In my opinion a pleated skirt can be teamed with many footwear styles; from Stan smiths to heeled boots they can take a pleated skirt from daytime casual to a more dressy occasion in the evening. 
  • For a casual outfit option I tend to team my pleated skirts with a pair of Stan smiths to give my outfit a modern edge. 
  • For a bit more of a statement look for Spring I tend to wear pleated skirts with trainers or a pointed statement shoe or slipper and If the skirt is overly patterned, I always make sure that the shoe isn't too fussy - to avoid looking like I've ransacked a fancy dress shop.
  • For an evening outfit I always pair my midi skirts with a pair of pointed or statement boots. This gives the outfit an edge and I always feel a pointed boot can make petite girls like me appear taller. 
  • In the Summer time shoe wise I always go for heels for an evening option. I think heeled mules or lace up pointed heels can look amazing with a pleated midi and gives the outfit an air of sophistication and style.
  • For a daytime option in the Summer I would pick a pair of sandals to keep it casual or opt for a backless loafer for an on trend but practical choice.

I know that sometimes styling a midi pleated skirt can be a bit tricky so hopefully the above helps a little with some style inspiration. 
Also as a side note the above snaps were taken in Poundbury, a little town next to Dorchester in Dorset. Anyone who lives in Dorset or is in the local area on holiday needs to check out this cute little place! They have the best independent shops: from womenswear to homeware they will have you covered. I will pop up a little post about the stores you need to check out soon!
