What to Wear with Accordion Pleat Skirts

Accordion pleat skirts are everywhere this fall season that you might be thinking on how you’re going to style them. The tightly lined pleats, usually in chiffon or polyester, give a touch of breezy feminine charm to any outfit, and even more amazing, the trend can be paired with nearly anything in your closet. So, keep on reading for the fashionable tops you can wear with accordion pleat skirts to make your fall style more feminine and chic.

Fitted Tops or Bodysuits

The timeless trick of looking polished and sleek is to wear your billowy bottom with a form-fitting top. The accordion skirt in midi length is best worn high-waist paired with a fitted top tucked in. By going higher on the waist, the longer your torso and legs appear. Like fashion blogger Kristina Bazan, create a taller silhouette by going monochromatic with a nude bodysuit teamed with a matching shade of an accordion skirt as well as nude heels that will do the tricks for you.

Belted Tops

If you don’t have fitted tops, belting your tops can work to flatter your frame. If you’re on the petite side, don’t be afraid of the length, and you can even wear flats. Like fashion blogger Miroslava Duma, think of belting your band-inspired top if it won’t look great when worn tucked in with an accordion maxi skirt. However, an accordion skirt that falls on the knees is more appropriate in the office paired with a button-down shirt and a chic belt.

Boxy Tops

If you don’t have that curvy waist definition, better opt for boxy tops to add some structure to your billowy skirt. You may think of wearing leather jacket or vest in the fall months that will look perfect with an accordion skirt. The most ubiquitous are accordion-pleated midi and tea-length skirts, which are totally versatile and appropriate for any occasion. However, if you’ll go for a midi skirt that falls between your knee and ankle, it will look best if it’s high-waist.

Sexy Tops

Whether you wish to wear a plunging neck tank top or a sheer blouse, accordion skirts can balance your sexy look by giving some feminine feel to your looks. Like fashion blogger Kristina Bazan, think of a sheer V-neck top that will look more appropriate with a midi length accordion skirt over cut-off shorts and leather trousers. You may wear heels to elongate your frame, as well as comfy wedges that will do the trick.

Chic Blazer or Coat

If you wish to create a slimmer figure, opt for chic toppers like a coat or blazer that will brush against your top and skirt. If you’re curvy, you may opt for a high-waist style that really highlights your shape and falls beautifully over areas you may not want to accentuate. But wearing a chic blazer or coat will slim you down instantly as long as you wear them open with your outfit. With our styling tricks, you’ll be able to look chic and feminine this fall with accordion pleat skirts.
