Pleated silk maxi skirt semi-casual way

Silk pleated skirt worn with a shirt

Perhaps some of you remember this skirt of mine. It is 100% silk and that was the main reason I bought this skirt. I am kind of a sucker for natural fabrics. However, I am not a big fan of pleats: first, they tend to make you look bigger in a certain part of your body; second, those pleats make it hard finding a good matching top for the skirt. So many things that I had tried with this skirt looked either weird, or silly, or awkward etc. Anyway, it IS possible to find a matching piece.

I have worn this skirt a casual and a smart way and today's look is in a semi-casual style, just not too casual and not too smart. Today I paired the skirt with a slightly stripy shirt. The shirt is made of cotton-nylon-polyester mixture and have a silky texture plus the buttons resemble some kind of sparkly stones. These two factors make the shirt not looking too casual. And it happened that the colour matches that of the skirt perfectly. I tried these two together and yes, it worked.

The wedges and the bag that I chose to go with the look are of complimentary colours because I wanted them to stand out but not too much. And here are two other looks featuring the skirt, one very casual and another one smart.
