Custom Made Box Pleated-Skirts

red-box-pleat-skirtThese are a type of pleated skirts that have broad pieces of fabric doubled over and stitched permanently into bolder, box shaped pleats. Such styles were popular in the fifties, after the Second World War. Fabrics like cotton, polyester and wool are best suited as they are more structured and hold the pleats for longer.

A box pleated skirt adds volume to the hips and thighs and thus is best suited for leaner women, with a petite build or those with a more or less straight figure. The colors can be experimented with-solids and sober prints for the ‘no-nonsense’ damsel at work, and a contrasting colored one for the more edgy, carefree girl. Such skirts are often seen as part of school uniforms and have a fresh charm about them. Style a high waist box pleated skirt with a hot eye catchy belt, and you are ready to rock.
