Maxi skirts are a fashion favorite right now, they are being worn everywhere from the streets to the red carpet. Recently we have seen a cute variation of the maxi skirt gaining in popularity, it’s the pleated maxi skirt and we love this chic and fun fashion update. The pleated maxi skirt offers a more polished and grown-up look that makes it perfect for a romantic date or even the office. The runway shows of notable fashion  designers like Prada and Carven showcased some lovely pleated maxi skirts.  While celebrities like Natasha Bedingfield, Olivia Palermo and Angela Simmons all favor this look for both casual and formal affairs.

If you want to wear a pleated maxi skirt to the office we recommend pairing it with a structured jacket or blazer to offset the relaxed vibe of the skirt. Then add professional black pumps to the mix and you’ll have an interesting and fashionable work ensemble. For a more daring evening look we recommend pairing a black pleated maxi skirt with a neon boho top. The black and neon color combo is very trendy right now and you’ll look ethereal and sexy in this relaxed yet chic outfit.
