If there is a trend you definitely don’t want to miss this season, then it’s a pleated skirt. Yes, this bottom piece is back in style now and we see pleats are making a surprising resurgence. If you want to hit the streets sporting a pleated skirt, then you should add a few styling updates to look at your best.
Pleated Skirt And Oversized Knitwear
A pleated skirt looks amazing with a baggy knitted top, no matter if it’s a sweater or cardigan. You should try on a sweater with a billowing silhouette. Trust me, an oversized knit will be an ideal accompaniment to your knife-pleated skirt. The knitwear can be either worn loose and tucked-out or tucked in.
