As the weather gets warmer, skirts are officially going to become THE staple in our summery wardrobes. One of our favorite (but not too frilly!) pieces is the pleated skirt. It’s feminine and sooo breezy on ultra hot days, unlike the the bandage or pencil skirt. We love the fresh silhouette and texture it adds to any ensemble and how good it looks at any length! Don’t believe us? Peep these three style bloggers who looked mega cute in a maxi, midi, AND mini skirt. Get the deets below!

Caitie Schlisserman of Lady A La Mode

San Francisco blogger Caitie has a penchant for super cute summery ensembles and killer accessories. For her pleated skirt look, she thrifted her tied white blouse, pink polka dot midi skirt, and cross-body chain bag. For accessories, she sported Zara jewels, a House of Harlow necklace, vintage cat eye sunglasses, and sequin Betsey Johnson ankle strap flats. Ca-ute!

Simmy Pat of Closet Fix

Simmy took the pleated skirt to new lengths! She wore am elegant robin’s egg blue Forever 21 maxi skirt with a Forever 21 graphic tee and Forever 21 faux leather jacket. (Three guesses as to what her favorite store is!) We love this look because it mixes a bad ass vibe with a delicate and feminine twist. Also, her shirt says “Peas on Earth” with little green dudes dancing around a globe. Hehehe.

Bernadeth G. of Miss Beatrix

If there’s one word to describe Bernadeth, it’s CUTE. She always spotted in berets and bows, but here she decided to go a little bit more punk rock in studded Primark motorcycle boots, a black cut-out shoulder Etincelle shirt, and thrifted pale pink pleated skirt. But don’t worry—she IS wearing a giant bow ring to show that, yes, she’s still the girliest rocker on her block.
