1 pleated skirt 3 ways {workwear wednesday}

I’m not going to lie, when I think of pleats and clothes, I think of pleated khaki pants that our dads wore in the 90s and might even still wear today. I don’t have a lot of pleats in my closet and the ones I do have tend to show up on skirts, which is not bad.

I didn’t get a chance to showcase my favorite pleated skirt in a brand-new work outfit so instead I’m showing off 3 previous outfits featuring the same skirt.

  1. Reblogged this on vintagethrifter51.com and commented:
    The outfit options are terrific. I don’t tend to wear pleated skirts much as they hit me funny, I am more of a pencil skirt or A-line skirt kind of gal. Love the outfits though.

  2. That skirt is SO cute on you!! I love the pleats in the front, and I love it in all of those outfits!! I think the first one might be my favorite, but I’m a sucker for layers haha! 🙂

  3. Such a great illustration of the versatility of a pleated skirt. My favorite look is the second one with the polka dot blouse and vintage Mary Janes. I would totally wear this look and try to recreate it with pieces I already have. Like you, I used to associate pleats with men’s chinos. But blogging has introduced me to the varied world of pleats: box pleats, accordion pleats, knife pleats, etc. It’s a great big world of pleats out there! lol Have a great weekend, Nout!
