How to Look Modern in a Pleated Skirt!

Gone are the days when pleated skirts were dark, stiff and bulky and associated with thick midlife waistlines and dowdy librarian looks. Today’s pleated skirts are lighter, brighter and airier. Fine, knifepoint edge pleats are popular,  and shiny pleats that shimmer when they swing give off a futuristic vibe.

What’s the newest way to style a pleated skirt? Here are a few ideas from these 40+ Instagrammers.
