Pleats on Pleats



I bought this top about a year ago and the skirt around the same time but couldn't figure out how to style them, of course I could have worn the top with skinnies and the skirt with a fitted top and looked great but I knew there was a better and more fun way to style them. So they rested in my closet until yesterday when the idea finally struck me to wear them together. But that meant breaking the "rule" of wearing something fitted on the top when wearing volume on the bottom and vice versa, which I too followed, well mostly!


And tell me don't they come together well!!! So my piece of advice to myself and you is to not rule out anything till the time you try it. You never know what can actually look good and what will not.




Pleats are so feminine and a great detail option if you are not a fan of prints. The main reason why I chose to wear these pleated items together was the difference in the pleats. The top has the structured pleats whereas the skirt has the chevron detail pleats so they looked interesting together. And with so much colour in the outfit I chose to keep the shoes nude but with interesting laceup and cut out details for subtle fun.







I am all for interesting back details and shoulder details this spring summer. They are so much more sexy, fresh and everyone can rock them. 






What i wore
Skirt- asos

Top- miss Bennett (similar in blush)

Heels- new look (similar) (Similar)
Bag- miss Bennett (similar)
Earrings- h&m



Thank you for stopping by! See you in my next one.

  7. I love the colours and the combination is amazing - it definitely proves your point that we need to try a combination before actually ruling it out. I recently started wearing colours that others would say don't go together and I actually loved the results. xx

  18. You look gorgeous, as always, Chichi! I love that you combined both your pleated pieces into one look, the end result is so beautiful, creating a nice balance of movement and dimension, bringing the outfit to life, I really love that! I also love the contrast of the two colors, which compliment each other so well, especially against your skin tone! Great styling, beautiful! Thanks so much for sharing and I hope you have the most amazing week ahead!
