Happy Hump Day!!!
As you have probably noticed, I love skirts. I have almost every style except a pleated skirt. When I was 18 years old, short pleated skirts were all the rage and I wanted one. I asked my mom to buy me one and she said no. When I asked why she said my hips and butt were too big and the skirt would make me look bigger. I remember instantly feeling bad about my body and wishing I could be smaller so I could wear the hottest trend. Looking back I knew my mom was coming from a place of love and concern but that stayed with me up until this day. So when I saw this pleated midi Eloquii skirt on sale with an additional 30% off, I decided to put that memory aside and go for it!
In person the skirt is more a sand color and not too light. My concerns about the pleats adding volume to my lower half were erased after putting it on. I think the pleats flatter my curves and don’t cling to my hips. The only downside is that the skirt is about an inch or two larger in the waist (I ordered an 18). This is not a deal breaker for me because a trip to the tailor will fix this(remember the tailor is your BFF!). The skirt is lined so it’s not sheer. Since its a neutral color, you can play around with different tops and accessories to achieve the look you want. I wore a lightweight denim shirt from Old Navy and gold accessories to compliment the skirt.
Would you wear a pleated skirt? Have a great day!
