This season I’ve spotted more and more of the fashion set swap their trusty wide-leg trousers and long-line skirts for this shorter, more playful new-season trend. Reaching for a grey pleated mini skirt, fashion people are falling for the timeless and preppy nature of the versatile skirt.
Whilst pencil skirts and long wool styles are trending this season, I’m besotted by the playful nature of this new mini skirt trend. Featuring plenty of pleats, the mini skirt retains some fluidity that looks beautiful when in movement.
Newly inspired by the enviable looks I’ve been spotting all around, I’ve taken it upon myself my to create a few looks that champion the new-season trend. From preppy casual to evening-ready, here’s every way I’ll be styling a grey pleated skirt this spring.
