Every month the Fab 40’s take on a trend and this month we’re all rocking pleats!
This theme was a challenge for many of us, but that’s half the fun. I decided I needed something new and I found this unusual pleated PU leather skirt. Kinda different and fun, right?
I planned to wear another top, but I found when you’re working with a pleated skirt, you have to be very careful with the top. It has to be form fitting and stop right at the waist to balance out the voluminous skirt!
And shopping tip: pleats can add a couple of pounds, so balance that out with something. Here I think the black really makes a difference.
And hey, did you notice I got a new tattoo?! Or did I?!! Stop by this week’s FUN FASHION FRIDAY to get the whole scoop!
Let’s check out our Fab 40’s crew and see how they wore their pleats …

Love all these pleated looks, and your black skirt is such a great classic! Thanks for sharing, xox
Thanks, Patti! 🙂
Your black pleated skirt is such a modern and trendy take on pleats! You are not kidding about having to be careful with what top you pair with pleats. whew… Your cropped top with the lace sleeves was a fab choice. I am seriously dying over your Stop and Stare hose. I immediately Googled them to see what other styles they had to offer. Too cool.
I'm going to do a whole review on Stop & Stare on Friday! Kinda fun, right? 🙂
You are a rock star, a model moonlighting as a teacher!!!!! Gorgeous beyond words not to mention HOT to trot!!!
Aww … ADORE you. OXOXOXOXOXOX
Now pleats in leather—that's dichotomy to the fullest!! super cool and super stylish!
As for the tattoo hosiery—that's one way to have a tattoo without all the pain & permanence!! I might have to try that!
Tattoos are worth it, pinkie swear 😛 xoxo
Hee. They ARE painful. I have one that I don't think you gals know about. 😉 Anyway, thanks for the comments! 🙂
I love seeing all of the different looks, each one special and unique. I have an almost exact skirt from Zara, perhaps I'll wear it soon. Yours looks amazing and I love the fitted top .
