For many, the thought of a pleated skirt might get you thinking of a school teacher of the 1980’s crossed with Margaret Thatcher. A bit dull, a bit blurgh. Not the case at the moment. The pleated skirt has been edging its way into the forefront of the shop rails since last year and now, in interesting fabrics and finishes, the pleated skirt makes a fun wardrobe addition. Here are some which may get you thinking about just maybe, giving it a go.
