From teeny tiny tennis mini skirts to long flowing silks; there were plenty of pleated skirts on the fashion week runways for 2022. We saw some beautiful pleated skirts from the likes of Erdem, COS, Rejina Pyo and Sandy Liang and I'd say it was one the the most wearable trends to emerge from these high fashion catwalks.
Back in 2010, we were rocking pleated skirts in a range of different fabrics and colours but it seemed they fell off the fashion radar for a while. But just like all trends, they are back again with a bang! As I have said many times before, I don't believe that you should only shop or dress based on trends, nor do I believe that all trends are wearable and suitable to all of us. I also want to slow down the destructive world of fast fashion by encouraging people to look outside of those throwaway brands in favour of more second hand and vintage pieces. Keeping an eye on trends and taking inspiration from them is the perfect balance; especially when you can tap into the latest looks whilst still buying responsibly with original vintage clothing.
With that in mind, I have found some great pleated vintage skirts from our current selection at My Vintage - these pieces will take you through the Summer 22 trend and way beyond. Remember that savvy vintage shopping not only means less fast fashion but it also means your wardrobe is filled with unique, high quality and stylish pieces that can be kept and enjoyed for many years to come.
So, let's have a look at some of my favourite Vintage Pleated Skirts...
