It took me awhile to get on midi skirt trend. I felt like they just never hit me right. But when I found this pleated leopard print one, I just had to order it. The price point (under $35!) is amazing, and y’all know how I feel about leopard print, right?! (#teamleopardforEVER) And it ended up being one of my favorite purchases of the year so far! I couldn’t wait to style it several ways for y’all in a style session. Putting together these five leopard midi skirt outfits have me so excited to wear it out and about this spring!
As far as fit goes, this skirt is sized S, M, L, etc. and fits true to size. I’m in a medium and like the fit. (I’m typically an 8/29. ) It has an elastic waistband and hits me right below the knee at 5’7″. Sizing is somewhat limited in this exact skirt, so I listed three other options all at similar price points for you!
Chambray with Pleated Midi Skirt
I probably love chambray as much as leopard print! So, this combo feels so true to me! By knotting my button down (I unbuttoned the last two buttons and knotted at the waist), my waist is still emphasized. (Be sure to also tuck the back side of the shirt under too!) I also rolled the sleeves up for more of a warm weather look. You could also wear them down though for cooler weather! You could also add a jacket for additional warmth. To keep it casual and comfortable for everyday, I went with my classic white leather sneakers. This feels like an outfit I could wear running errands or with the kids! But, you could easily dress up the look with a flat or heel too!
Moto Jacket with a Pleated Midi Skirt
For those of us still feeling the cold, (ahem, me!) this is a great early spring option! I tucked my turtleneck in and added a leather moto jacket. If you wanted to brighten the look up a bit, swap the turtleneck out for a white tee! You could also nix the jacket, but as I’m sure y’all have read in all my style sessions, I’m definitely a fan of wearing a third piece! For the shoe, I went with my leather Royale flats. They are so comfy and I love the asymmetrical cut to them! But you could also make a shoe swap to a pointed toe flat or heeled sandal to make this outfit more warm weather appropriate!
Turtleneck (medium) | Leather moto jacket (medium) — option under $100! | Exact skirt (medium) — drawstring waist option, brown leopard option, solid blush pink | Shoe (9 – TTS, fit tight at first but stretch!) — BUDGET OPTION under $40
White Button Down with a Pleated Midi Skirt
Is there anything more classic than a white button down? This combination is the perfect modern twist on a timeless look. Similar to the chambray look, I knotted the bottom of the button down to keep focus on the waist. I also love the little bow detail it creates!
The last time I wore this skirt, I paired it with my oversized denim jacket. (You can see that look in my oversized denim jacket styling session!) But for this look, I prefer a more classic fitted jacket. Everything about the look is tailored and fitted!
Of course I had to throw in a little pop of color too with these red flats! If you’re not into a bold shoe, the option is endless with this look! You could go more casual with a sneaker or make it very spring-y with an espadrille! (I just tried on these at Target, and I love them!)
Sweater with a Pleated Midi Skirt
Here’s one more cold weather option for ya! I’ve seen so many ladies rocking the oversized sweater and skirt look, but I didn’t actually try it until now! For some reason I thought it wouldn’t look right on me. But guess what?! I’m a fan. I just did a little front tuck to help define my waist. For the shoe, I went with something dantier! Because the top is oversized, I’d stay away from any clunky shoes. Heels like these or pointed toe flats are the perfect match!
Knotted Tee with a Pleated Midi Skirt
Of course I had to throw in another moto jacket option! I live in these jackets during spring and fall. They are the perfect weight and I love the instantly cool vibe they give me! Instead of tucking my tee, I went with a side knot! It does the same thing as a tuck by emphasizing the waist, but it also adds a fun style detail! You could also knot in the middle! Again I went with a more ladylike dainty shoe for this outfit. I like the mix of slight edge with the moto jacket against the girly bow-detail shoe. Any mix of feminine and masculine details are always a win in my book! If you wanted a true edgier look, a bootie here would be a great option! You could also make it more casual with a sneaker!
