10 Tips On Wearing A Pleated Skirt…
1.) Make sure it’s fitted. Pleated skirts have an elastic waistband and usually run big, make sure you choose a size that fits you well to avoid adding volume to your midsection.
2.) For the most slimming look possible when wearing a pleated skirt, it’s important to show off the waistband. To prevent looking shapeless and/or frumpy, tuck your shirt in or opt for a crop top.
3.) Though it may be trending now to pair your pleated skirt with an oversized sweater, this look can actually make you look extremely short. It’s okay to wear a loose top but make sure you at least tuck it in.
4.) Pleated skirts can hide some unwanted areas when worn high waisted. The light, flowy material will not add to your hips.
5.) Stiched-down pleats lie flat on top which is ideal for when you have a tummy.
6.) If you are curvy on top, a pleated skirt will balance the entire look by choosing lightweight fabrics.
7.) If you are petite, choose a hemline that’s higher in the middle. That way it doesn’t cut you off at the calves.
8.) Add a skinny belt for extra definition.
9.) Wear it all year around. This skirt is so versatile and can be worn all year long!
10.) If you are new to the pleated skirt family, start with natural colors and/or a monochrome look.
