Box pleated skirts are a classic piece that must have in your closet in a few different colors and fabrics. Variations of the hem length, texture, color, print, and fullness can create totally different looks.

I admit, I did not have a box pleated skirt in my closet. And once I made this one, I knew there would be more in different variations.

If you follow me on Instagram, you saw that I had this gorgeous African waxed fabric from AKN Fabrics and I could not decide what to do with it!

As you can see, I settled on a classic silhouette because I really wanted this skirt to POP and WOW! And it served! I love this skirt!

To keep in line with the classics, I styled it with a white silk blouse from Banana Republic and some nude Rampage pumps. I just love the sophistication of this outfit. It is a perfect balance of crisp classics and eclectic vibrancy.

By the way, a silk, or silky-type crisp white blouse is an absolute must in every woman's closet. It can be styled for night or day, up or down
