Pleats Please

Ihave been obsessing over the pleated skirt for a long time now. One of this season’s hottest skirts, this baby is a classic piece you definitely need in your wardrobe.

Yumi is one fashion brand that has done the pleated skirt very, very well. They have collaborated with British TV presenter and model Lilah Parsons, to not only create a gorgeous gold stripe pleated skirt, but a fabulous 17 piece, 60s inspired Parisian collection, called Yumi by Lilah.

I was delighted to give a few pieces from this gorgeously feminine collection a whirl, and I immediately fell in love. Embracing white on white with a touch of gold, I paired the gorgeous Gold Stripe Print Pleated Midi Skirt with Crochet Lace Funnel Neck Top. As you can see the two items are the perfect pair and scream extreme prettiness and classic chic.

To add a slight tailored edge, I teamed the outfit with the Classic Mac Trench Coat, which is literally the most beautiful trench coat I’ve ever seen. With gold buttons and buckles, the coat is the epitome luxe and matches the pleated skirt and white crochet top perfectly.

To pull the outfit together, I went with the classic girly look and popped on my grey New Look courts and Forever21 pearl earrings.

Do you like the pleated skirt trend my fashionistas? If so, how would you choose to style it?
