Accessories Report

Pleated skirts have been quite popular for a while. Whether it is a maxi or a mini pleated skirt, I believe a Fashionista must have at least one. It is a great accessory for any look, and depending on how you decide to dress it up, a pleated skirt like this is perfect for school days. For days that you do not want to put in much effort, pair a pleated skirt with a cute top, tights and some Dr. Martens sneakers. If you are looking for a more sophisticated look you can wear a pleated skirt with a button-down shirt and ankle boots. Whatever direction you choose, a pleated skirt presents you with options.

The color of her skirt was right on point and this shade of wine is great for the cold weather. Since black is my favorite color, I would pair a black pleated skirt like this one from Topshop with a funky top or a blazer of your choice. If you are in the mood for a long pleated skirt, this one from Urban Outfitters is perfect. The splits along the side make the skirt even cuter. Luckily, pleated skirts come in a variety of different styles and colors, so your choices are unlimited.

During the winter, colorblocking is a trend any Fashionista can take part in. This Fashionista’s forest green jacket paired with her burgundy pleated skirt is the perfect neutral colorblocked look. The great thing about a pleated skirt is that Fashionistas will get  plenty of use from it. This is not a trendy piece of clothing that you will only wear once; you can mix and match it. It is amazing what a simple pleated skirt can do to an outfit.
