Style File: Pleats

June 18, 2013


I'm more of a trousers and jeans kinda gal. I feel my best and most comfortable in them. Skirts somehow seem so much dressier to me. Since my style is pretty casual and minimalist, I've found it hard to work them into my wardrobe - particularly the longer lengths which tend to have more of a boho vibe (not really my thing).  Pairing feminine skirts like this pleated midi with simple boxy tops like this borrowed-from-the-boys sweatshirt, makes them more wearable. It now has more of a modern, sporty and laid-back look I can wear often - my kinda outfit. I really love how this white skirt is flowy yet structured with its pleats - makes it the perfect balance of edgy yet girly. Not to mention, this was actually just as comfy as my fave pair of sweats (ok, lets call them loungewear from now on, sounds better)!

This entire outfit consists of super bargain finds - the sweatshirt is a hand-me-down boy's Hanes. The pleated skirt and Furla purse were thrifted (seen in this post), and the sandals cost less than $40 (here)!

I would love to know- what kind of skirts will you be wearing this summer and how will you style them? 

Hope you are having a great week!
