Trend: pleated or ‘full’ skirt Why we love them: These skirts add a feminine element to your attire and can easily be dressed up or down. They are flattering to every body type and come in an array of colors and materials. All of the pleated skirts I own I’ve bought at a thrift store. I always buy long skirts and I alter them to different lengths. Plus Size Tip: For a more flattering look, wear the skirt right above your navel. A crop top or a shirt tucked in will look best!
