The Skirt Everyone Needs According to Milan Street Style

Hi Everyone,

Love looking back at Fashion Week Street Style pictures – at the time it’s difficult to spot trends but revisiting pictures the one thing that really strikes is the pleated skirt. This is quite obviously one trend that’s about to get really big – so if you don’t have one yet now is the time to invest! I bought one at the beginning of the Summer and must confess to hardly wearing it – I did however wear it to Fashion Week this time and was positively surprised at how many more I saw floating down the streets.

Sparkly fabrics are huge – love the silver look myself. Go for length rather than short. Combine with a nice jumper or top and denim jacket. Look carefully at the bags and notice they are either a horse saddle style or small…either matching the outfit or making a solid statement of their own.

Here 6 pleated skirt pictures from Milan Fashion Week followed by 3 complete pleated skirt outfits to inspire you even more – have fun!

Hi! I’m Yvonne, a 40 something (wink) Kiwi, living in Zurich. I love fashion, travel, shopping and food – believing chocolate will cure almost anything!

  1. I enjoyed seeing these different takes on pleated skirts. I have about three pleated skirts, and admit to not wearing them often. I am really intrigued by the longer ones and have been considering adding a maxi length to my wardrobe. Now that you say it’s going to be a huge trend, I have an excuse to give it a try.

  2. Thanks for linking up to Top of the World Style. You fit right in gal! I love this streetstyle look of preppy pleated skirt paired with a rebel look!

    1. Thanks for your comment Dawn – actually I thought you looked amazing at NYFW and it was the picture of you in your fab silver skirt that inspired me to take my green pleated skirt to Milan – so there you go!!!

      Have a super day dear!
      xx Yvonne
