You must have heard the pleated midi skirt, and sweater belt combination will be one of the autumn’s most fashionable outfits. However, since summer is back for the next two weeks, this is not exactly the best way to wear a midi skirt. So how to style the pleated midi skirt for the last summer weeks then?
WHAT TO WEAR ON THE LAST SUMMER DAYS
It wasn’t even a week since I wrote what to wear on a cold rainy summer day (in case you missed check it here). And yesterday I found out the summer is back. Meaning we need to make our clothes work for the heat again. You know what I mean? Let me guess you too were looking forward to wearing the pre-fall clothes already?
Well, even if you are not up to date with the pre-fall fashion yet, I bet you ran out of summer outfit ideas just like us. Anyway, there is no reason to panic, or to wear the same summer outfits again, as I know exactly how to combine the pre-fall IT pieces with some of our favourite summer picks and make an update to our summer look while still look fashionable and along with the latest fashion trends.
THE NEW WAY TO STYLE PLEATED MIDI SKIRTS
You have seen me wearing midi pleated skirts so many times this year. Remember here, here and the pink one over here. Well, how not to, if this type of skirt is the fashion star of the year. Along with the new mini skirt, of course. But more about the new mini another time.
This time all attention is once again on the midi pleated skirt. Yes, the one I stole from my mother. Remember, I wrote about this vintage skirt over here.
Anyway, we can’t exactly wear the midi pleated skirts with a belted oversized sweater and sock booties or bovver boots and a beret just yet. But luckily there are other great pre-fall pieces that are both, fashionable and smell of summer.
HOW TO STYLE MIDI PLEATED SKIRTS
Finally, here is how to style the midi pleated skirts now. Simply get these pre-fall pieces and style them with your pleated midi skirt. As said, all of these clothes, shoes and accessories are from pre-fall collection, meaning you can wear them later too. Although with that oversize sweater and fancy tights of course.
What colours should be your midi pleated skirt now? Navy, light blue, metallic, nude, red, pink, yellow, green or printed (70s print). My favorite? The dark navy, of course.
Yes, the slogan tee has been here for a while. Good news, it will remain our favourite shirt in the next season too. As the words of encouragement and feminine vibes aren’t going anywhere. Not that we really need them, but hey on a blue Monday or in the middle of the week every girl needs a little reminder how fabulous she is. So what has changed when it comes to the slogan tee since the previous seasons? The colour. Although, honestly, my favourite remains in white. Especially with pleated midi skirts.
COLOR CLASHING TOP
Not fan of the logos and any type of printed words on your top? Then simply be sure to wear a colour clashing top with your midi pleated skirt. Although, a little reminder, the colour clashing game has moved to the next level. And became more sophisticated and chicer. Keep reading to find out more about the colour clashing.
For more lady like look go for a 70s print on your top. And wear it with the printed pleated midi skirt.
COLOUR CLASHING TIPS
Ps. If you are wearing a navy pleated skirt, then style it with a blue top and burgundy and claret accessories and crisp white shoes.
Another fashionable option will, however, be the red pleated skirt, with a blush top, navy bag and blue shoes. Ps.The blue shoes are another IT piece of the pre-fall season. Nonetheless, if this colour clash is too much to handle for you, then go for red sandals. Surely, the red booties would be even better. But as said, unless you live in Hamburg or anywhere near (you know in the summer free zone), you should wear summer shoes. Read sleek red sandals.
THE IT SHOES
As said before, it’s not a time for the red booties, or the most fashionable boots of the season, the slouchy boots and OTK’s quite yet. Well, wait, I’m taking back that about the OTK’s as you saw me wearing OTK boots this summer here.
In short, the shoes you should be wearing right now with you pleated midi skirts are mules, sling backs and sleek sandals of course. Slides could go to, but honestly, there are too many chic mules out there you won’t even remember of the slides.
Almost forget to mention again the colours of the shoes you should wear with your midi pleated skirts now. Again, the colours are red, blue, white and metallic (rose gold, silver). Obviously, I couldn’t forget about the rose gold as I’m wearing sandals in this beautiful colour. Nevertheless, just between us, rose gold is slightly fading. You know what I mean. Still, until I get these pair of Stuart Weitzman sandals in burgundy, rose gold it is.
Aviator shades and boxes in short. Well, there are some other bags that will go perfectly with the pleated midi skirts, too. Like the rectangle bag, that is on every fashionista’s radar these days or the small black bag that is whatsoever always a great choice.
As it goes for the colours, golden hues for the Aviators. Yes, that means the rose gold, too. And blue, red, black, navy, blush for the bag.
