pleated midi skirts
Since I’m a petite gal, I usually wear shorter skirts to play with my proportions — the more of my legs your can see, the taller I’m supposed to look. Recently, I’ve opened up my wardrobe to longer skirts and more specifically discovered a love for pleated midi skirts. I’m 4’9” so most midi skirts, petite sizing or not, are pretty full-length on me, but I still love how feminine and flowy they feel. Even though being a woman was terrible back in the day (and sometimes still is) I do fantasize about the days when women wore long skirts all the time. I think pleated midi skirts get me pretty close to that fantasy without looking like a Game of Thrones extra. Summer has also pretty much arrived in Boston, and having a longer skirt can feel really nice (and look really cool) when there’s a breeze to move it around. Longer skirts also mean not worrying too much about exposing yourself, which is always a concern with shorter skirts (if you’ve never felt the horror of realizing your backpack has caused your skirt to ride up in the back, have you even lived?). Below I present some of my favorite pleated midi skirts — a couple that are in my collection and a few that I’m definitely considering on adding to my cart.
If you’ve found any other cute pleated midi skirts, please link them for me in the comments! I think they’re such a versatile piece that can instantly make any outfit pop, so I’m definitely interested in finding more. If I haven’t convinced you that you need a pleated midi skirt or two in your life, let me know what other must-have clothing item idea you’d like me to take a deep dive into! By the way, I’ve started working on the portfolio section of my website and am looking for feedback. Besides good weather for wearing fun skirts, summer also means more time to work on other projects (like this blog LOL), so if you’re looking for someone to partner with on a creative project, check out my portfolio and hit me up!
