A Basic Tee
First, I bet you already have a bunch of basic tees and tank tops in your closet. Also, you probably forget you own these tees! You can pair your skirt with one of those tees. For instance, I went with my fitted tees in neutral and black colors. The idea is to let the skirt be the centerpiece of your outfit. Similarly, you don’t want to have to go out and buy something new to wear with this skirt. Going with what you already own will increase the likelihood of you actually wearing the skirt!

A Pair of Booties (or Sneakers)
Next, the shoes I use with a pleated mini skirt depends on the vibe I want to project. For example, I go with a pair of booties for a preppy look. In contrast, if I am in a more casual mood, I swap out the boots for sneakers. My mood decides what I shoe I will go with to rock this skirt.
Keep Everything Else Simple
Lastly, you want to keep everything else in your outfit simple. No belts or a lot of jewelry. There is no need for all of that. Keep it simple. Additionally, you don’t take away from the skirt.
