How To Wear The Pleated Skirt In Autumn and Winter

28 Apr

If you bought a pleated skirt (which if you didn’t know, are very fashionable at the moment) in summer and you thought you’d have to pack it away now til next year – it’s not the case at all.

When it was warm you may have worn it with a cami, blouse or tee and sandals, now in autumn and then into winter, try winterfying it by teaming it with a knit, jacket, tights and boots, pumps or brogues.  (If it’s warm enough – or you don’t feel the cold like I do – you can even wear it with bare legs and sneakers)

Like all things fashion, this style won’t work for everyone, but if you like the look, don’t be afraid to give the pleated skirt a try.  (What have you got to lose!) Some of my clients, who were not completely sold on the idea at first, have been very pleasantly surprised that, with clever styling (on top and on the feet), the right fabric, length and fit (you want it to skim rather than cling over the hips) it has worked beautifully for them and has added an interesting and versatile piece to their wardrobe.  (I’d wear mine to a wedding, to the races, out shopping or to lunch. I’ll try and remember to show you on Instagram.)

This, this and this  are a few of the good ones I’ve seen lately, but I also bought one from ASOS for myself recently.

The Statement Skirt

8 Nov

A statement skirt…

In an eye-catching color, shape, texture or print.

It could be something you can dress up or down and wear shopping, with your denim jacket and a basket or to the theatre with your heels and sparkly earrings.

All it needs to accompany and showcase it, is some key fresh basics  – a simple sweater, a classic white shirt, a flattering t-shirt or a well fitting simple jacket. (And of course, it goes without saying, a great shoe).

If you don’t have a statement skirt, perhaps consider adding it to your shopping wishlist.

CHALLENGE: If you have a statement skirt, pull it out and see if you can come up with a few ways to wear it differently.  Maybe you’ve only worn it to weddings or to work…see if you can style it in a way that you could wear it casually. (Or at least a less dressy situation)

Style your clothes in different ways, for different occasions and get more wear out them.

How To Casual Down A Statement Skirt

16 Mar

You don’t have to save that fabulous statement skirt, you pull out once or twice a year, just for special occasions.  (That, let’s be honest, may not even come)

You can try and wear it with a t-shirt, a knit or even a denim jacket.

What’s the point in having something lovely – possibly one of your favourite pieces – hanging mostly unworn in your wardrobe.

Casual it down and see if you can make it work more often.  …and don’t just save it for best.

Does It Fit…Properly?

24 Mar

If your skirt pulls across the hips like this….it doesn’t fit.

(Walk in it to check. Don’t just stand still in the mirror)

Remember: “Just Because It’s Your Size, Doesn’t Mean It Fits”
