Pleated skirt
The pleated skirt trend is one you definitely won’t want to miss this season. With its longer length and cinched waist, the popular pleated midi or maxi skirt flatters all figures, creating a womanly silhouette.

Because we love this pretty, pleated trend, we’ve rounded up our favorite pleated skirt outfit from street style, to give you ideas for how to wear a pleated skirt now. Also included are tips for taking your look to the next level, with accessory advice and tips for how to style this feminine fashion trend.

The denim jacket is essential in most women’s wardrobes. This versatile closet piece is perfect for dressing down fancy skirts and making them feel more fresh and modern.

Here, a sleeveless denim jacket is layered over a pretty, striped pleated skirt, for an easy summer outfit that’s no harder to style than a simple t-shirt and jeans, but looks so much more pulled together.

Adding a pretty silk scarf to this outfit instantly takes it from basic weekend wear to date-worthy look.

Like dresses, jumpsuits come in many styles, so part of pulling off this look is all about finding the right jumpsuit for you. When shopping for a jumpsuit consider your needs. Are you after a casual jumpsuit to wear during the day or something more formal for an evening look? Do you need long sleeves to combat cold weather or will a strapless style help you beat the heat? Once you know your requirements, you can start focusing on the details.

In general, styles that are fitted at the waist and then looser on the legs tend to be the most flattering. If you are tall, wide-leg jumpsuits that finish just above the ground will be highly complementary. If you are vertically challenged, you may want to opt for a slim, cropped style instead to avoid looking swamped in the fabric.

While jumpsuits can be flattering, they also have a knack for pulling the eye downwards as you look at them, making you appear shorter than what you are. Wide leg and low-waisted jumpsuits, in particular, are notorious for turning average height women into mini versions of themselves.

One of the best ways to combat this problem is by adding a pair of high heels to your look. The additional height that you will receive from the heels will help lengthen your legs and make you appear taller. Just make sure that you choose slim heels instead of chunky ones to keep the look slick and long.
