Back in 2010, pleated skirts were one of my wardrobe staples.
Versatile, flattering on any shape and chic, these skirts were everywhere at the time – and while they’ve been a little off the radar for some time now, trends always come back around.
Y2K trends are returning to the forefront of fashion in droves, and it’s the pleated skirt’s time to make a comeback too. You’ll be familiar with the micro-mini pleated Miu Miu skirt that went viral last year, and now it’s hard to go into any shop without seeing a similar style.
Of course, those little tennis skirts are almost too small to see – but if you’re not up for getting your legs out, longer iterations are in too. Team with knee-high boots for the perfect cold weather combo.
You can still wear them in summer though. On the SS23 catwalk, pleated skirts appeared at Rokh, Thom Browne, Valentino and Dries Van Noten, making it a bona fide look for the new season.
So are pleated skirts in for 2023? The answer is a resounding yes. Now, here’s where to get one.
