Remember the old-school days of dressing? Right from that high puff to tight shorts followed by miniskirts. Well, looks like our favourite trends are making a comeback and this time around they plan on staying for a while. With pleated skirts being one of the top fashion trends of 2021, it has now become the one look that wouldn’t fail you on any occasion.

Quick fashion tip: Pair up a satin pleated skirt with a bright coloured tank-top or a matching crop top and pull that summer of 21’ look with ease. You can also pair a satin-finish flared midi-skirt in Mustard Yellow, Yellow, Green or Navy Blue with a white or black coloured crop-top and get moving. These fail-safe looks are bound to make you look presentable and graceful for any event under the sun.

If you are curating a look for a glam celebrity night then pair up a Baby Pink, Charcoal Grey, Golden, or Brown colored pleated skirt with embellished or delicately embroidered satin and velvet tops. Something about the look spells easy grace and bespoke elegance that comes to you effortlessly.
