Pleated Skirt on Emmy Rossum

Fashion trends may come and go, but timeless classics look chic, year-in and year-out. With the beginning of Spring only a few weeks away, now is the perfect time to start shopping for new pieces for your wardrobe. As the weather begins to warm up, you feel inclined to putting away your winter wools and heavy coats, and replace them with lighter, breezier apparel. One of the best transition pieces are skirts, as they can be paired with knee high boots and tights (when there’s still snow outside), or bare-legged with sandals and wedges (as the temperatures start to heat up). Featured here are top tips on how to wear skirts for spring.

Whether you prefer short and sassy A-line skirts (such as the trendy skater skirt), or relaxed and comfortable maxi lengths, skirts are a fun alternative to dresses, and can be easily coordinated with a range of tops (from fitted tees to loose blouses). A classic look that evokes retro femininity is that of smart pleated skirts (similar to the style worn by actress Emmy Rossum, featured above).

If you prefer feminine, romantic outfits, opting for flowy style skirts is a great choice. These can be paired with fitted camisoles and t-shirts for a casual weekend look. Or, they can be coordinated with cropped blazers and tie-neck blouses for an office-appropriate style.

If you’re a traditional type, choosing pleated skirts (as seen below) is a fabulous option as it’s a classic look that works well with every body type (from curvy to straight). What’s especially appealing about knee-length and mid-calf length skirts is that you can show some skin without being too revealing. These skirts look chic paired with waist belts (to accentuate your figure) and pointed toe pumps (for the office) or espadrilles (for weekends).

  1. Great post!! I love both smart pleated skirts as pencil skirts, it’s just about what you want to go for that day. You can make a pencil skirt more casual by wearing a nice top with a print on it, or maybe you can mix some prints. I’m still searching for a good pencil skirt though, I wonder if I’m ever gonna find the perfect one for me…

      Hi Saskia! I agree – it’s fun changing up the look of an outfit with prints. That’s why I especially love skirts, since they’re so versatile.

      Hi Whitney! I love pencil skirts as well as fuller skirts (like A-Line cuts). I find that pencil skirts are more dressy, so I usually reserve them for cocktail parties and work.
