Daytime comfort

The pleated skirt is a modern day classic and with clever styling can work for a shopping trip or a weekend brunch date. For a more casual daytime look team with a crisp white shirt and pumps. Sling a biker jacket over your shoulders if it’s chilly.

STYLE TIP: If you have a straight-up-and-down figure cinch in the waist with a slightly wider belt to create curves.

Casual Evening

If the occasion calls for a slightly dressier approach, team our printed pleated skirt with a brightly coloured knit, heels and pop a white jacket over your shoulders. Remember when you are styling separates to choose one of the colours within the print to coordinate your look.

STYLE TIP: If you have fuller ankles keep your footwear tonal. Try a nude ankle boot or a wedge to elongate the leg.

Get dressy

When you want to dial up the glamour look for luxe fabrics such as this silk jersey tee . Its casual, easy-to-wear shape means it looks good on anyone. The loose neckline is great if you are busty and the draping skims over tummies. Team with heels, a metallic bag and a pair of statement earrings for a chic outfit perfect for a christening or a day at the races.

STYLE TIP: IF you’re feeling a little wobbly around the tummy, invest in some good shapewear . It will give you confidence when wearing a pleated skirt as it will control and flatten your midriff.
