If my previous post “why you should own a pleated skirt” did not convince you to join the pleated skirt trend, hopefully this time I will 😊. I heard somewhere pleated skirts are the new denim trousers and I say a big yes to that. They are just as versatile as denim trousers, they can be dressed up or dressed down. They are effortlessly chic, I don’t even think you can look dressed down in a pleated skirt.
In this look I was dressed for a coffee date, I wanted to looked dressed up but not over the top, so I chose a black and light fabric t-shirt to match my metallic gold skirt. I got this t-shirt in a size 14, simply because I like my t-shirt neck wide enough to drop over the shoulder. I can also knot it at the back, front or side.
I considered white sneakers and black strappy shoes before settling on my embroidered mesh peep-toe booties just to add a bit of edge.
A white collared-shirt or white t-shirt would have also worked very well with this skirt.
And oh by the way if you’re looking for a good cup of coffee check out Bosphorus Restaurant they have amazing coffee and very pleasant staff.
