With A Knit
Personally, I find the easiest way to style a pleated midi skirt is by tucking in a knitted jumper or top. This was my go-to look throughout Winter and I finished the look off with ankle boots. Now that Spring is finally here, I would opt for a lighter knit, such as this M&S number, and pair with my classic heeled court shoes instead of boots.
With A Trench Coat
Just like a pleated midi, a trench coat is another timeless piece of clothing. It’s one of those items that you never have to feel guilty about buying, as you know it’ll never go out of style. It’s often difficult to find what coat to wear with a midi skirt, but I always stick to the rule of making sure it finishes either at the same length of the skirt or longer. I’ve found trench coats to work really well, especially in a longer length. I’ve listed a few of my favourites below:
With A Blouse
For to create a classy, feminine look for work, simply tuck in a blouse. If your skirt is plain, pair with a patterned blouse and vice versa. If you have a bright coloured skirt, keep your blouse neutral.
With A Blazer
A blazer is a great alternative to wearing a coat, especially for Spring. I’d never really been a fan of the boyfriend style blazer, but, I tried one on with a midi skirt the other day and loved it! I pulled the sleeves up so they’re ruched up to my elbow and kept it simple with a plain tee underneath.
