In fashion

Pleats? Yes, please!

A classic look that also has had upsurges in popularity at different times, a pleated skirt is especially on trend this season and into the Fall. For a more fashion-forward statement, the pleated skirt is updated with unexpected details like alternating stripes of color, non-traditional fabrications in metallic and satin, and asymmetric hemlines. 
Feminine and flirty, love the pleated skirt for its whimsy as well as the nostalgia it brings of my childhood outfits. Below are my faves right now. Dress them up with heels and a blouse or wear them more flirty with a crop top. Want to add a little edge as well as casual chic? Put on sneakers, add some metallic or leather and a t-shirt. Voilà!

Also love these pleated dresses by Halston Heritage. The one on the left is so elegant, and would be appropriate for almost any occasion year-round. The orange dress is flirty and feminine, and a gorgeous color to wear to a summer wedding!

    Pleats made a come back yet again, I remember I used to have one years ago and I'm currently loving the maxi pleated ones, they don't fit me quite the way I want them but they're cute.

      Maxi skirts can be challenging on anyone, so it's important to find the right one. For my style aesthetic, I'd probably stick to the midi length!

    I'm so happy pleats have made a comeback. So flattering and simply timeless.
