5 ways to wear a pleated midi SKIRT

It’s no secret the Aritzia Wilfred Twirl skirt is one of my favourite pieces for any wardrobe. I own it in a neutral beige tone, and I have repeatedly purchased it for my clients for a few valid reasons.

  1. It works on so many body types. I had petite clients with a long torso using it to elongate their lower body. I had clients with a triangle silhouette use its natural A-line to confer volume to their hips.  I would use it for other clients to mask areas of concern around their waits, and the list goes on.
  2. It’s versatile, as you can see from the endless outfits opportunities it opens. It can be worn in any circumstances and for any occasion, literally.
  3. It packs well. I have travelled with this particular Aritzia skirt to Italy, and it did not wrinkle one bit. It’s light, and you can also take it in hand luggage.

I created five different outfits (plus this one) to showcase this fantastic item and its versatility.
