SO I'M INTO PLEATED SKIRTS..

Ah what can I say..

I never thought I'd be a pleated skirt kind of person (in my mind there didn't seem to be a middle ground between 'primary school' and metallic-'I'm-not-cool-enough-for-this'-fashion-blogger) but lo and behold, I've managed to somehow build up quite a collection now?

I'm feeling thoroughly enthusiastic about autumnal style at the minute. I've had a big rehash of my own personal wardrobe to celebrate the new season and I just can't help but feel ready for autumn after my last, indulgently 'all things autumn' style post ("autumn autumn autumn").

And one piece that has muscled it's way into my style circle? The pleated skirt.

Outfit details

Plum pleated skirt (comes in plus size too), Cosy brown jumper, Blush crossbody (past season, similar style here, super affordable option here), Blush block heels, Personalised bangle, Berry lip (Ambitious Matte).


The perfect piece for autumn, the pleated skirt is one you can quite as easily dress up as dress down. Pair with some loafers and a jumper for day, or a blouse and some heels for dinner. Or go sort of midway like I've done here with some little block heels, a cosy jumper, a curl in your hair and a spring in your step!

There seems to be so many styles and colours to choose from at the moment, with seemingly every brand having it's own offerings. Tweed, shiny, jersey, leather, the highstreet is your pleated-skirt-oyster - and I've collated some of my favourite styles I've seen for you, I hope there's something in there you love!




I've plumped for a few, including this beautiful plum number that's gorgeously dark and rich in colour, with just the right amount of sheen as not to look cheap. At least I think so!

And what's more, I'm ditching the nude, very simple makeup and sporting a berry-pink lip. Who even am I now?

I asked F whether my arm in the photo above looked like one belonging to a T-rex and now that's all I see.. He just laughed when I asked by the way, so that's not strictly a reply either way! ;)
