5 pleated skirts to wear now and save for when you're a granny

Great news! That mid-length skirt you bought in a charity shop a few years ago that seemed like a good idea at the time, can finally come out of the bag you left it in the day you bought it - pleated granny skirts are IN. Just don't style it with pop socks and a waterproof head scarf.

Thrift shop thrill seekers have been flouncing around in granny skirts for years, and the trend has finally made it to the mainstream. I bought a vintage lilac number last year for a wedding, but I got distracted by a trendier-at-the time sheer dress (sheer effect, I did not offend any priests or mothers-in-law).

This year, I'll be wearing it all over the place. First, to a wedding because that was the original goal, with a cami top and silver strappy heels; then, to work, to brunch, on a Sunday at home - all over the place.

If you didn't happen to pick up a bona fide granny skirt in St. Vincent de Paul, there are plenty to be found on the High Street.
