Weekends, seriously, go by way to fast. We should really start thinking about how to make them longer. 😉

I don’t know about you guys, but one of the hardest things about trying out a new item of clothing is figuring out how to style it. I have been wanting a pleated skirt for awhile now, but was waiting to pull the trigger until I found the right one. I was pumped when I found this one at Zara. The only problem was figuring out what to wear with it.  Here are a few tips that helped me when styling my pleated skirt.

  1. The look you want to achieve– First it is important to decide what look you are searching for. Are you wanting to be dressy or casual. Where are you wearing the outfit. Once you decide this you can move on to the next step. I chose to style my skirt more on the dressy side.
  2. The Top– Not every top goes with every bottom. You need try out a few before you find the one that looks the best. This was probably the hardest part for me. I did not know what top to wear. I first tried a bodysuit, then a cute tee, but neither was working. Finally, I tried this mock neck crop top. I tied a knot on the bottom to add separation between the two pieces.
  3. The shoes– The shoes make or break or the outfit. I really wanted to wear a strappy heel with this skirt, but unfortunately it was just too cold, so I went with a simple black pump.

Here are a few skirts I really like:

There are many different looks you can achieve with a pleated skirt. You can dress it up and wear it for date night, or throw on a tee, moto jacket and ankle boots for an edgy casual look.  I would totally recommend adding a pleated skirt to your wardrobe. Go and explore your #Chardonnaystyle.
