Over the Rainbow

Over the rainbow,

that’s how I felt when I saw this skirt. And since the design and cut of the  maxi skirt or the longer than to the knee pleated skirt trend is here to stay I am showing you one I have  chosen. This one is designed by the Denmark designer Birgitte Herskind and is pretty colorful and I have find it by Local Shop in Noordwijk the Netherlands where I live in Jackie O.

So what is a pleat!

Typically a type of fold that doubles back upon itself, doubling back and then being secured  in place. It is commonly used in clothing and upholstery to gather a wide piece of fabric to a narrower circumference.  

Probably what is so at this moment is the Pleated Skirt and white shoes. They all look so cool, composed, and chic by pairing your pleated skirt with a crisp white shirt and jeans or leather jacket, this will finish this modern look. This is how I am wearing it today but with white t-shirt and sneakers will work equally good with the pleated skirt. Just play with the proportions if the skirt is longer than mid calf  I would suggest to have a heel. If you are very tall you can probably pull it off even without the heel so ballet shoes will kill as well.

If the skirt is busy keep the rest fuzz free so you create an elegant look, if your skirt is in one color or a very neutral pattern the top or t-shirt can have some design on it or even message. Is all depending on where you are planning to be that day.

There is something so feminine about those kind of skirts and mostly if you are wearing it you feel very light and ladylike at the same time. So if you have not yet invested in one I am telling you this trend moved from being trendy to the concept, I am Here to Stay!
