Regular readers of Mama’s A Rolling Stone know that we have been smitten with summer’s piece du jour, the pleated skirt, for a few months now. However, when we spotted gorgeous actress Keira Knightley out and about in Venice, California last week, our feelings changed. Thanks to her summery lemon-yellow pleated midi skirt, we are now more than smitten—we are simply besotted! Accordingly, we decided to round up some of our favorite pleated skirts and share them with you, dear readers! So, whether you are after a bright color or a neat neutral, make sure you read on to discover the seven pleated skirts that are making us swoon in today’s Top Buys story!
As you know, the fashion world has been coveting color this season—whether that means neon shades, juicy brights, or deep jewel tones. If you, like Keira, are drawn to color, make sure you check out Adam’s Broomstick Crinkled Silk-Chiffon Mini Skirt ($300). The neon yellow hue is sure to make you stand out, especially when you team it with a neutral like black or taupe. Then again, if you prefer something a little less bold, why not try ASOS’s Pleated Knitted Skirt ($73.86) or Sparkle & Fade’s Pleated Chiffon Mini Skirt ($49). Not only will booth these skirts bring your outfit to life, but they can be worn in a number of different ways. For instance, you can tuck a slouchy tee into the waistline, pair them with a loose tank top, or even layer them underneath a lightweight sweater. The latter option is also perfect for when the time comes to transition your closet to fall! Speaking of fall, if you are looking for a longer length, make sure you check out Topshop’s Pleated Chiffon Skirt ($90). It’s pretty coral hue is perfect for every season.
Of course, if you prefer neutral tones, there are plenty of options to consider. We particularly like Free People’s Asymmetrical Pleated Skirt ($49.95) as the uneven silhouette adds an interesting element to the mix. We were also drawn to Theory’s Sylvian Silk Pleated Skirt ($185.50). The two-tone fabric is certain to catch the eye, but we also like the sophisticated vibe of this skirt—it is short, yes, but it will look smart with a white button-down or cashmere sweater. Finally, we must call your attention to BB Dakota’s Kiley Floral Skirt ($50). The muted floral print makes this skirt just right for summer. Inspired? Happy shopping!
