Pleated skirts are big for AW18. Here’s 4 of the best to buy in the sales now

If you’re compiling a hit list of AW must-haves, then a pleated skirt should be top of it. They appeared on the runways at J.W Anderson, Sacai, Joseph, Valentino and Sportmax in February, which means we’ll all be wearing them before too long. Elegant and on-trend, pleated skirts have a kind of 1950s femininity (the high waist and swishy skirt) but when worn with contemporary separates (a deconstructed sweater perhaps), they become utterly modern.

The best way to shop the summer sales? Invest in pieces that will have longevity and take you into the next season… like a pleated skirt. Here are five fabulous options that you can wear now, but which will look totally on-trend come autumn.

Patchwork, like pleats, is a significant trend for Aw18 (see Dior and Sonia Rykiel), so this skirt ticks two trend boxes in one. The double side splits give it a bit of a Rixo feel too. You will look totally on-it in this piece come autumn. Style it simply, with a textured knit.

Patchwork pleated skirt, €29.99 (was €59.95) at Zara

There are several lovely points of difference to this Self-Portrait pleated skirt; the mismatch prints, the extreme asymmetric hemline, the colourblock stripe… It’s a standout piece that will bring real individuality to your look.

Asymmetric pleated midi skirt, Self-Portrait, €162 (was €269) at net-a-porter.com

I love the graphic print of this skirt. It makes a statement but because it’s monochrome, it won’t overwhelm you or the rest of your outfit.

Pleated Moonlight skirt, €92 (was €185) at bimbylola.com

I love this delicate tie-dye effect skirt from Maje. It’s so elegant and easy to wear as it will work effortlessly with print or block colours.

Jonael tie-dye skirt, €136.50 (was €195) at Maje
