Pleats Please

When I scroll back through my Instagram feed, I realise that I only ever wear jeans. Don’t get me wrong I love a bit of denim, but I’ve recently realised I need to branch out a bit more, and so I’ve reached for something which has fast become my other sartorial go to: the pleated midi skirt.

I just love the ease of it. It’s summery, girly, and pretty. It’s long enough that it covers enough of my embarrassingly pasty (thank you Scottish sun) legs that it works both for the bouts of summer we’ve been lucky enough to experience and the day to day gloom of St Andrews weather. Wear with a jumper, leather jacket and trainers, or an over-sized coat now; wear with a baggy logo-tee and sandals in summer.

Here are some of CCs favourites from the highstreet:

  1. These spring colours are perfect for right now. Get it at Ann Taylor (plus it’s on sale at the moment too)!Screen Shot 2017-05-02 at 12.29.09 pm.png
  2.  This metallic green number is oh-so-cool: wear with a denim jacket by day or a sheer top by night. Buy it from Zara.Screen Shot 2017-05-02 at 12.31.46 pm.png
  3. What is not to love about this? From Uniqlo.Screen Shot 2017-05-02 at 12.32.24 pm
  4. Don’t fancy wearing a dress for a ball? This skirt-cami combo is super cute. And it’s from H&M, so you can physically try it on before hand without the hassle of online shopping, which is always a rare plus for the St Andrews shopper.Screen Shot 2017-05-02 at 12.36.18 pm.png
