Pleated perfection

Pleated perfection

It seems like every event or occasion that I’ve been to over the last few weeks has been perfect to wear my faithful black pleated skirt for. Teamed with t-shirts, jumpers, blouses, trainers, boots, sandals. It is such a hard working staple in my wardrobe so I thought I’d see what other pleated skirts were on the high street to add to my collection.

Firstly, my mega versatile skirt was a bargain from TU clothing at Sainsbury’s however I’ve found a dead ringer that is equally as bargainous from H&M. It’s available in red too and a steal at £19.99.


So onwards to what other pleated beauties are available right now.

You’ve probably seen this H&M skirt all over Instagram recently but don’t let that put you off. I adore the stripe and can see it being a great Spring through to Summer piece. It’s also available in leopard and honestly I don’t know which I love more! They’re both £34.99.


Oh “hello” my pretty. This Hush colourblock pleated skirt is just a little ray of happiness. It should be at £89! I can however, see this being more of a daily runaround skirt than the H&M ones so probably worth the investment.

Another striped number but how pretty is it?! This Zara striped pleated skirt would be a total winner with a white t-shirt and trainers or strappy top and sandals in the Summer or as Zara have styled it, with a coloured jumper or knit and boots for the Spring. This one is £29.99.


This Warehouse skirt is a more formal option but it features two of my current favourite things – polka dots and pleats! My love for the matching top and skirt combo is massive. Pop a waist belt on and you have one incredible outfit. The skirt is £49.


I still haven’t got over the loss of my gold pleated skirt last year (a very traumatic first world tumble dryer error 😩) which I wore all Summer long. It was also a TU bargain and I haven’t found one like it since but this beautiful Reiss one comes pretty close. But at £150, gulp, it’s rather eye watering. But it is soooooo pretty ✨

Can you tell the trauma is still fresh?? 😩😢🙊


I’m not usually a fan of asymmetry in skirts (too many memories of wearing them when I was 15 😆) but I adore this pretty pink skirt from M&S. I think it’s the split and slight wrap that makes it really work for me. Pastels are such a huge trend for Spring and I can totally see myself wearing this with a white t-shirt and trainers. This skirt is £35.


Both the rose pink colour and the scalloped double layer hem have got me all a flutter about this Finery skirt. I’d combine it with a crisp white shirt or soft silk blouse and pairing with my faithful Boden Lille suede heels for a Summer lunch or evening date. This skirt is £89.


Ok so this Rixo skirt is a slightly different pleat style and fit and is definitely an investment piece at £215 but oh my, isn’t it amazing?! It’s 100% beautiful silk.

Love F xx
