Because they make you look broader and fatter, right?
Yeah, fuck that.
Not only am I wearing a pleated skirt, but it’s a SHINY pleated skirt!
What on earth is everyone’s obsession with telling women how to dress? I’ll never understand it.
If you want my opinion, you can wear a pleated skirt no matter what your size is. If you’re worried about it making you look bigger or bulky or unflattering, I find that sizing down actually helps because the pleats sit better (or maybe closer?) on your curves. That’s what works for me! Try everything and figure out a way to make it work, but don’t deprive yourself of being trendy just because of what someone else said.
Have a great weekend!
