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.

I think pleated midi skirts get me pretty close to that fantasy without looking like a Game of Thrones extra.

Unfortunately their dresses are about $400 or more, and while that is worth it for the artisanship that goes into each of them, not everyone can spend that much on a semi-formal occasion dress.
