I first came across the modest fashion brand Niswa Fashion at Dubai Modest Fashion Week. By the way, I have a video of their collection at the show in my highlights on Instagram if you’re interested. Being that we were some of the few Americans at the event, I felt an immediate connection. Their pleated skirts caught my eye, but I didn’t end up buying one. Fast forward six months, and Niswa Fashion happened to have a stall at ISNACON this year. Of course I had to jump on that pleated skirt.
The Pleated Maxi Skirt
I kind of have an obsession with pleats. You can see my favorite pleated looks here, here, and here. Also here. While I probably have more pleated midi skirts than a woman needs in her closet, I didn’t have a pleated MAXI skirt. That’s why I love this Niswa skirt so much. The length, color, and fabric make it very versatile. I’ve dressed it down with this wool sweater, but it can very easily be dressed up for an evening event.
How to Style A Pleated Maxi
