Trend: Pleated Midi Skirts

Links to Lookbook: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6

Trend alert! Pleated midi skirts are all the rage on atm. It's another one of those unexpected 'grannish' trends. I mean who would have thought that mid-length skirts would not only be in fashion, but would look good few years ago? I certainly didn't. But I think there's evidence enough in the photos above that they're definately not just for OAP's anymore. Having said that, there are steps that should be taken to avoid looking like your gran when sporting the midi skirt. A stylish pair of shoes, preferably killer heels, is essential to keep things looking fresh and up to date. And always tuck your top into the skirt, and pull in the waist with a belt to retain a nice silhouette. This will prevent you from being swamped by too much fabric. Of course these are just my suggestions, you can wear the trend in whatever way you want. And it's not like I haven't made a few fashion faux pas in my time.. Ugg boots and sparkly jeans anyone?   

DISCLAIMER: I do not own the images used to create the collage of photographs. I put in links to the relevant Lookbook pages. Please contact me if you do not wish your images to be used on my blog.

P.s. I recently entered the VOLCOMunity competition on and it would be really great if you could hype my look! I entered the look you saw in my last post, go here to hype it on Lookbook. It's doing quite well atm, I'm in the top 50. So I might be in with a small chance of winning with your help :)
