In this post, I share with you how to create a fall outfit with a pleated plaid skirt for the office. More on how to look your best in plaid.


Plaid Is a Big Trend in Fall

I love tartan or plaid and wool skirts. I still remember the pleated plaid/tartan skirt my Godmother Berta gave me when I was about five. It had extenders and I wore it until second grade. Later in life a plaid pleated skirt was always in my wardrobe. As a long-time reader of my blog, you may remember my pink plaid skirt from summer. Because plaid is normally associated with the cold season that skirt is a great piece to transition into fall on the warmer days early in the season.

Heels Are a Must with a Midi Skirt for Petites

Midi skirts can be tricky on petites. Thus, to elongate my legs I went with nude heels. I also accentuated my waist with a belt. I went for a nearly monochromatic look which always gives the impression to be taller than one actually is.

Up-dos Are a Do this fall

I went for an up-do with a knot low in the back. On purpose, I left some strands sticking out. It looks a little bit more French woman style than going for a perfect up-do. Especially, in midlife, a “perfect” up-do can look matronly. Well, in my opinion. Moreover, I like the strand to play with. More on how to get awesome on trend fall style.


Hats Are Big this Autumn

There were hats all over the runways at fashion weeks for this fall/winter season. Therefore, I topped the outerwear outfit with one of my thrift-store finds: A cute pillbox.

Outerwear that Works with an Outfit with a Pleated Plaid Midi Skirt

Never forget to style your outerwear! It would be a wasted chance to look great and to have fun and be creative. A pea coat works great with a pleated skirt because it gives you a waist. More on what to look for in a pea coat.
