Yes, this post was inspired by how much I loved this Givenchy skirt on Duchess Meghan, and a convo in the comments (there, and previously; Meghan LOVES a pleated skirt) about whether or not Ye Olde Pleated Skirt is easily worn. My own argument is that it’s much more easily worn than you might think. I have two that I wear a lot — this old cherry print J.Crew one, and this LK Bennett one (mine is just plain navy blue) — and they’re rather delightful to bash around in. I just wear them with a plain bodysuit (I know, but they stay tucked!) or a plain tee shirt, but I’m also interested to hear your styling tips.

Look at all your options!
