Pleated longer lengths are said to be “having a moment” right now… not one of those funny as in weird moments more like one of those “oh-so perfect” moments.
Earlier this year, after Christmas had made a huge dent in my bank balance, I wandered into @TOPSHOPLEICS @Highcross and… dreaming of spring… bought a lovely Sheer Black Pleated Maxi Skirt… and the unstructured floppy camel hat too.
This week I have fallen absolutely head-over-heels in love with this peach chiffon pleated maxi skirt by Rare** for Topshop, £45.
I am now imagining myself swishing along New Walk on a warm spring day, twirling around the streets of Leicester in search of an icecream or perhaps sunning myself in the South of France, come July, all romantic and wistful overlooking the Mediterranean [this skirt is definitely coming with me!]
As soon as you step into it… zip it up and fasten the little button… you feel like a ballerina… [cue twirl and plenty of skirt swishing] …as many of my friends are aware I have absolutely no coordination and cannot dance for toffee… so this takes some doing.
I recommend all you girlies out there who want to add a little romance to your wardrobe grab one of these skirts now whilst they are HOT HOT HOT.
I have seen a variety of different styles available to suit all budgets… some going for as little as £18 whilst others have prices way over the £300 mark.. eek! So whether you are after vintage, high street or designer you are sure not to be disappointed - there is plenty to choose from!

Team it will a cropped vest, or perhaps a vintage Tee, or even a sleeveless blouse and floppy hat and you will look like a dream!
