There’s something so fun, feminine, and classic about a pleated midi skirt.

If you’ve seen my feminine Target finds post, you’ll know this skirt jumped out at me on the rack. So did this bodysuit! I mean, Target just has its ways…

I love midi skirts as a modest, summer-friendly bottom. Many have elastic waistbands (like this one) so they are large meal friendly and still cinch in your waist in a flattering way.

Plus, more androgynous styles are becoming increasingly popular. A super feminine piece can round out a more masculine look in a way that feels fun and fashion-forward. You can also pair this skirt with a crop top and not cause your grandparents to blush, which is sometimes the goal.

Midi skirts can often be the solution to warm, windy days when shorts just don’t cut it and a mini skirt might having you flashing people at random. They also make for pretty photos and add gentle texture to any outfit.

Below, I’ve compiled a list of my favorite pleated midi skirts for summer that are perfect for beach vacations, Sundays at church, and everything in between. They are a piece that provides a bit more interest than simple wardrobe basics (like this bodysuit) and allows you to have many more outfit options in your wardrobe.

Top 3 picks from this list:

  1. Light Blue Dalmatian Print Pleated Skirt
  2. Metallic Pleated Skirt
  3. Lavender Floral Skirt
