The Madison skirt is full skirted and features hand-set box pleats and hidden pockets. It is comfortable and practical for everyday life, but easily dressed up when the occasion demands something fancier. Truthfully, wearing it makes those everyday tasks seem a bit more of, well, a special occasion.
Can we finally just talk about the amazingness of our Madison Skirt? Hello ladies! It’s THE BEST! No really, we aren’t just bragging because it’s ours, we’re bragging because it’s comfy, cozy, chic, stylish, classy, versatile . . . need we go on? Ok, we will!
LuLaRoe’s Madison Skirt is a box pleat skirt, which in a very technical term means that the skirts is double pleated with the two upper folds facing in opposite directions with the two under folds pressed toward each other. Super technical, we know. Basically, rather than have your typical pleat with the fabric folded over once we gave you two pleats! By doing this, we’ve created a full skirt that is actually very subtle in is bodaciousness; it doesn’t flare out like full hoop skirts. Thank goodness! But if you’re out dancing, skipping or just taking a nice walk, the full skirt is going to swoosh and flip and billow out in the most feminine, sweet, exotic way.
This is just one of the reasons that makes the Madison skirt the best box pleat skirt. But, it’s definitely not the only reason! Guess what nifty secret we slipped in with it? A pocket! Hello?! What is better than a dress or skirt with a pocket? Basically nothing. Except maybe some Swig cookies to go with it. We rest our case.
A skirt with pockets is not just a convenient thing. Having pockets lets you go out for the night without a lumpy purse. Just slip your lipstick and necessary cards in and you’re all set! Unlike some skirts, too, the pleated full skirt hides any bulges or unwanted lumps no matter what you’re carrying in there. Like mints or gum for that first date. Or a little treat when you suddenly get a craving. Your keys, a pen, chapstick, a couple small toys, goldfish for church, a small notebook, a switchblade, wait wait wait. Too far. The perfect folds of the box pleats mixed with the pockets hide the fact that you even have pockets, let alone something in them. It’s like putting chocolate and peanut butter together--they are both fabulous and fantastic on their own. But squish one into the other and you suddenly have one of THE best candy bars, I mean, box pleat skirt in the whole universe.
Another reason why the Madison skirt is probably one of the best pleated skirts is the fact that we made it with an elastic waistband. So no matter your size or width, or if you’re like some of us who fit in between size, the skirt will stretch and form right to your body giving you a snug (just enough to keep it from falling off) and yet comfortable fit. Our elastic waistband skirt doesn’t look tacky like some maxi skirt waistbands. It’s just the right size to fit a simple belt over or leave alone if you want to tuck a blouse in.
Along with this, the Madison skirt has a pleated skirt pattern that is modest yet comfortable and not old-fashioned. Depending on your height or size, the hem of the skirt hits right on the kneecap helping you feel relaxed and modest for any situation, whether it’s work or date night, the length of this skirt is perfect for any occasion and keeps you looking classy and chic. We know that between some stores, finding the right skirt or dress in the right length can be tough, a lot of options out there today are just a bit too short for many of us to feel comfortable in. So here are LuLaRoe, we made sure that our Madison box pleat skirt is a length that will work for anyone no matter their height. Plus, because of all the different fabrics and colors and patterns, you can easily keep a couple--or more--in your closet to mix and match with. Trust us, you’ll definitely want at least two!
It is comfortable and practical for everyday life, but easily dressed up when the occasion demands something fancier. Truthfully, wearing the Madison skirt makes those everyday tasks seem a bit more like, well, a special occasion. But you’re not going to feel over-dressed, don’t worry!
This is probably another great reason to snag a couple Madison skirts while: they’re perfect for any and every occasion. From church to work to date night to running errands, there’s no time that you can’t wear it.
For those lighter, warmer days, box pleat skirts can be paired perfectly with a button-up cardigan and dazzling necklace. If you want something a little less dressed-up a simple tee shirt can go a long way with these box pleats. Pick your favorite and drape a layered necklace or scarf around to dress it up or to cozy up. If you’re going for a more casual look, be sure to wear a pair of sneakers like Vans or Converses or something similar. For a dressier look a peep-toe heel with an ankle strap are so stinking cute to go with! Or if you need something more “every day” a pair of sandals and simple cotton blouse are just the right fit. Remember that if you’re going out or staying in, make sure to pair with the right jewelry. Long, layered necklaces or even a bib necklace are perfect to help dress it up with some bracelets or even a nice watch. More casual looks can be accessorized with a pendant necklace or none at all and a leather band for your wrist.
The Madison skirt can transition seamlessly into the fall and winter months by switching out the heels and sandals with booties. Throw on a pair of tights with an ankle bootie and leather jacket or even jean jacket and you’re all set for a day of school, work, errands, or just a night out for some fro-yo. If you’re going to wear it to work, we suggest pairing a braided belt or even a wide belt to really help accessorize.
Literally just about any top will work with this box pleated skirt too! A button up blouse, blazer, tank top, cable sweater, peter pan collared-blouse, name it and it’s definitely going to pair well. This is one of the reasons why the Madison skirt can be worn year long. Long cardigans are also a dream to wear with, pair one that hits below the knee with it and you just might not ever want to leave the house. Or you will depending on whether it’s so comfy you never take it off or it’s so comfy you fell asleep in it. You’ll have to keep us posted on that.
