Wearing a Pleated Mini Skirt Pleated mini skirts are extremely popular and trendy since elegant pleats instantly elongate the silhouette while the waistband adds some definition to your narrowest point and the hemline shows off your beautiful legs. Yet, with so many types of pleats available, it may be quite tricky to find the most flattering skirt. Understanding that, we want to help you on that front. Basically, skirts with stitched down pleats work great for women with a larger belly because they lay quite flat, thus, creating a slimming effect. Those with a rounder lower half can benefit from knife pleats with folds turned in the same direction. Such skirts have less volume and can make your bottom area slimmer visually. Though girls with an hourglass figure can opt for any type of pleats, they will look especially stunning wearing a mini skirt with accordion pleats. Sewn with folds in alternating opposite directions, accordion pleats look fuller on the hips, making your figure appear even curvier. Pleats aside, if you have a rectangle or apple-body shape, pick a pleated mini skirt that is tight at the waist to give more definition and bring attention to that area. As for fabrics, we recommend sticking to soft fabrics for warmer weather and opting for stiffer ones for cooler months. For example, mini pleated viscose skirts can work for summer, while mini pleated leather skirts are more appropriate for winter. Of course, styling plays an important role as well. For transitional weather, a mini can be dressed down with a biker jacket and trainers or fancied up with traditional heels and a blazer - a street-smart but chic look. To winterise your outfit, you can go for a wool coat and knee-length booties which look ultra sexy with most types of mini skirts. For a laid-back summer look, you can experiment almost with any casual tucked-in tops. We particularly like how graphic tees go with mini pleated solid skirts, offering a perfect blend of edgy, street style, and feminine sophistication. If you’re after a more mature look, you can’t go wrong with a buttoned-up blouse for a romantic date or an off-the-shoulder top for a hot night out with friends.
