What is ultra-feminine, chic, timeless and deserving more than one spot in your wardrobe? An accordion pleat skirt! And it’s not hard to see why the accordion pleat skirt is a trend that just won’t stop, because they are really flattering, easy to style for a casual or more evening look.
By now, you most probably know how attached I am to good skirts, and especially to midi ones. Only lately I have worn a maxi cupro skirt (looks like velvet in the photos), a tartan pleated skirt and this multi-tiered maxi skirt from H&M x Kenzo collection. Most of the times I prefer a good skirt rather than a dress, as it offers more styling options, hence more outfits.
A metallic accordion pleat skirt is a great choice for the holidays. You can wear it with a lace top, a blazer and patent leather pumps, and voila! You are ready and perfect for any event on your busy holiday party schedule.
I wanted to wear this metallic accordion pleat skirt that day so I started my outfit from there. I styled it with my favorite oversized sweater to create a texture contrast, a leather jacket for a touch of edgy, and these suede ankle boots. But the perfect match for this skirt was my Chloé Faye bag which also has these two roomy accordion compartments. My favorite thing about this bag, apart from the mix of suede and smooth leather, is that it is perfectly punctuated with gold and silver-tone accents. This makes it go great with other garments and accessories that also have metallic details.
