How to rock pleated skirts this spring

Even though it may not seem like it, the first day of spring is just around the corner. And one of the season's hottest trends is the pleated skirt. You'll see this go-to garment on everyone from the prepsters to edgier gals. Here are some tips for rocking the pleated look:

Graphic tee
For an outfit that successfully mixes casual and formal garments, pair a graphic tee with your pleated skirt. You'll look effortlessly chic as you run around town in this youthful ensemble. Style tip: Check out a used clothing store for graphic tees and pleated skirts.

Flowy blouse
For a more formal look, pop on a flowy blouse. Opt for a pastel color to channel the spirit of the season. Put on a few accessories like dangly necklaces and chunky bangles to complete the look. 

Cropped sweater
Pair a cropped sweater with a below-the-knee skirt for a retro look. Select a skirt with a printed motif to add more interest to your outfit. For another option, you can choose a skirt in a bright solid color.
