10 Reasons You Need a Pleated Skirt In Your Wardrobe This Fall

10 Reasons You Need a Pleated Skirt In Your Wardrobe This Fall

It's raining pleats and here's why you should care.

By Chantel Morel

If there is one underestimated piece of fashion in the world, it has to be pleated skirts. For years I have personally only associated this trend with the thought of a school uniform, but I regret my preconceived notions because if there is one thing this season has taught me it’s that the pleated skirt makes for a chic AF ensemble. From famed red carpets to fierce street style moments, this classic design has appeared on the silhouettes of the hottest stars left and right. TBH I never really appreciated just how versatile a pleated skirt could be until now. In addition to the surplus of shapes, colors, and patterns, metallic versions of this skirt are going to be everywhere this fall...which means you need one, stat.

And if you’re more of the dress type, a long flowy pleated dress is a stunning choice for any special occasion (just like Lily Collins’ gorgeous red and white gown).

Below are 10 options you can easily wear now, and just add tights or boots when the temps drops. Whether you’re heading to happy hour or need a last-minute outfit for a wedding these stunners have got you covered.
