From grunge chic to glam doll, you can work a number of looks with box pleat skirts. Girls, it’s time to flaunt those legs and get with this playfully sexy trend.
Skirts in general are pretty popular among celebrities and box pleated ones are being rocked to a different level. Alia Bhat worked this trend in a tangerine knee length Dior skirt while Kangana Ranaut looked bedazzling in a short box pleat skirt. Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra are others who have been spotted sporting these skirts. Miley Cyrus, Selena Gomez, Cheryl Cole and Taylor Swift each show how versatile this single type of skirt can be. Pleated skirts are feminine, bold, simplistic and chic all wrapped in one. From Calvin Klein to Alexander Wang and Dior to Christopher Kane, runways all over the globe are seeing a lot of pleats!
Of the various kinds of pleats, the box pleat skirt is trending currently! A high waist pleated skirt with a cropped top paired with some crystal studded heels and a clutch spells evening chic while being great for the day as well.
Long or short, wear your box pleat skirt with sneakers, boots or heels depending on the look you are going for. If you are stepping out on a chilly day, pair a silky pleated skirt with a jacket and a scarf. Chunky jewellery and sunglasses will do wonders to dress you up. The same skirt can be made to look glam with heels and a fitted top or super casual with a tee and flats. A belt is a great way to add definition to your pleated skirt.
In short, the pleated skirt is sexy, flirty and feminine. Go for it!
