The pleated skirt is having a moment; from a long maxi one like this, right down to the mini skirt (I also have been seeing a lot of mid-length pleated skirts peeking out the bottom of thick jerseys for Winter – definitely a trend I’m planning to try!).

Black + long verticle lines + longer length skirt = only one thing: extremely flattering. This particular skirt goes with just about everything (and I mean everything!); it’s almost like a trendy equivalent to the casual black legging. I decided to pair it up with some sparkly pewter tones for my post, but I particularly like it styled with a classic white shirt and some ballet flats for a work appropriate look or with sneakers and a printed cami. I’ve been loving these types of skirts on my blog lately (can you tell?) because they’re a lot more versatile than you’d think! Outfit details at the end of the post.

How would you style this skirt?
