Styles in my closet may come and go but there are some items that will be in my closet forever! One item I can’t imagine ever getting sick of? Pleated skirts. Retailers clearly agree with me. I think there are a record number of pleated skirts for Fall 2019!
It was hard to narrow down all the beautiful choices to just a few to buy. That’s why I love blogging — I can buy one or two and show you all my favorites in the hopes you’re inspired too!! Today I’m showing you how I style one my favorite pleated skirts for Fall 2019. (It’s on super sale right now!)
The Pleated Midi Skirt comes in a few colors (metallic, plaid, striped, vegan leather, houndstooth…more in the boutique at the bottom of this post), and Banana Republic has released it in different materials and designs. Last year I loved the grey color so much that I decided to add the red to my closet this year, and I’m delighted with it! It’s one of my top pleated skirts for Fall 2019. This cut is very flattering on hourglass shapes and if you head to my Instagram you’ll see how fun it is in movement.
Many people at my office thought this outfit was a dress. I can see why! The top has the same color as the skirt and blends perfectly into the skirt. That’s one styling trick to taller and leaner. I wore this outfit before the chill truly came on and a denim jacket was all I needed. Now I’d probably wear one of my suede motos over it instead.
Pleated skirts can be styled so many ways. They look great with cropped tops and sweaters. Moto jackets look so good with them! I have tons of pleated skirt outfit ideas on my Street Style Pinterest board — are you following me there so you catch my latest pins?
Below, more of the pleated skirts I’d buy if I had unending closet space. These are my favorite pleated skirts for Fall 2019! Which one is your favorite? After you check these out I’ve got some bonus content for you — on my liketoknow.it profile I’ve got two more pleated skirts styled and a preview of another outfit idea for my sweater top!
Pleated skirts are so flattering to me! I love wearing them to work too, because they're comfortable but still cute and appropriate. Xx.
So true! I think they also make a great base for a date night outfit!
I love all of the choices you've linked – they're gorgeous! I just love wearing cozy pieces like a pleated skirt – especially with tights and a sweater! I just love it!
Me too! So many ways to wear them.
Love that outfit! All the color just screams fall and WOW those earrings are seriously amazing. You are rocking them! It's so hard to choose a favorite skirt, but I think my favorite is the pink one from H&M. The whole outfit is so pretty and feminine.
I love that pink H&M skirt to! These earrings are the prettiest pair I own, so glad I stumbled upon them!
The colors in this outfit are amazing So cute for the fall!! Love this entire look on you
Thank you so much!
Hi – can you update your link to the earrings? It's going to the sunnies now. Thanks!!!
Done, thanks for pointing that out!
Totally agree, pleated skirts are HUGE for fall. I especially love them in the midi length. I wore two of them to NYFW the last time I went, and had so much fun in them! Loving all of your picks here.
They're just so easy to style which I need during this busy time of year.
Great suggestions, and a nice layout of the post. you have some great syles in this post.
I wear pleated midi skirts all the time – they're my favorite!
I can totally understand why. 🙂 You have excellent taste!!
So many great options here. I especially like the longer ones with patterns….because I have so many solid tops to go with.
Yes! I feel like pleated skirts are only recently having patterns again after being solid for so long, and I'm enjoying it very much!
That outfit does look like a dress – great color matching!
I do have 2 pleated skirts, but I really had to search hard to find ones that didn't make me look short and wide. For me, the trick is to find ones that end just below the knee.
Love the j crew skirt you posted. Also like this Boden one in brown – but it keeps selling out. (and why $170 for poly??) https://www.bodenusa.com/en-us/kristen-pleated-sk…
Thanks Anthropolitan!! Boden has been sneaking a lot of poly in lately, I have one dress that's poly and been fine but another fell apart quickly much to my sadness. (But they were very responsive and refunded me, so I am happy.)
Pleated skirts are my favorite and are always so fun!! I’m thinking about styling one with a chunky sweater for the holidays.
Love that idea!!
I LOVE a midi skirt, but haven't splurged on a pleated skirt yet. You just might have motivated me. Thanks!
I'd love to know which one you get!!
I can't get enough of your outfit!! I absolutely love how bright and vibrant that skirt is and I love how you broke the colors up with a denim jacket. So chic!
A few years back, I had the biggest crush on pleated skirts. It's been quite some time since I've really loved the trend, but I'm seeing some beautiful pieces this year and it's making me think I may need to invest in a couple of them again!
Yes I think it might be time!! They look good on everyone which makes me happy.
This whole look is amazing! I love how you accessorized and the other skirts you linked!
Thanks so much!
You are totally killing this entire look! I love all the colors ✨ So put together and vibrant!
I aim to slay, lol.
Your pleated skirt is completely sold out.
Any suggestions for someone 5'3' or shorter in a normal (knee or just below the knee) size? The few I clicked on all seem so long!!
It very well may pop back, I know Banana Republic is running a pretty awesome promo right now so that probably killed the stock.
I don't know how you feel about these brands but I know a lot of my shorter friends love Shein and Chicwish. How about this skirt: http://bit.ly/2BwFxvU or this one: http://bit.ly/361mIzc
Or are you looking for red specifically?
Love the skirt
So glad you do!!
Love your look so much! I really need to give pleated skirts a try this season…you'l had some great picks!
I love these skirts so much!! They are always so cute with any top and can be warn no matter the time of year!! I also love the color of this one!!
Love, love, love this whole look! I never thought I could wear a pleated skirt but this year I bought a gorgeous pink one. It’s quickly becoming a favorite.
Oh pleated skirts are so much fun to style! I feel like they'll always be a staple in my closet too!
I've been loving pleated AND satin skirts this season! This one looks amazing on you, and you styled it perfectly.
Pleated skirts are so fun! Love all these options you shared!
Im all in for the pleated skirt trend! I haven't purchased one yet but i think they are so pretty and stylish!
I didn't realize I needed a pleated skirt in my life, but this post is definitely steering me in that direction. I love all of the different styles you shared. There really is something for everyone. Your orange skirt is so perfect for fall!
Ooohhh yes.. I really like this trend! It's the perfect amount of upscale and you can always make it casual! I love it. You look so good
I would definitely rock a pleated skirt! And I love the midi length.
I love pleated skirts! They are so flattering! So many cute options in this post!
I'm loving all these pleated skirts! The way you styled this look is so cute!
Hi love the pleated skirt outfit you are wearing! When I click on banana republic links I keep getting error messages and to contact you. Is it because I’m in Canada? Normally it’d go to Canadian website. Thanks
Hmm it might be because the items are sold out? I'm getting an error message for the tote for example, which I know is sold out. It's too bad they don't just redirect to the homepage, I'm not sure why BR is choosing to stop a potential sale from happening! I'm really sorry for that.
I can check online or in store here – am inspired now. Thanks!
There’s something about a pleated skirt that is always on point! Loving the colour of your outfit here and perfect pop of colour of Fall!
I LOVE the pleated skirt look. You styled it so perfectly.
