Trend to Try: Pleats

Posted by on May 24, 2012

Maxi Styled Pleats

Pleats translate the best on knee length or full length pieces. The long vertical lines help to elongate your legs and your body shape. You can wear a long pleated dress in neon, print, pastel, or any color that will make a bold statement. To make skirt or dress more bohemian, just add some vintage rings and bracelets.

Flowy, Short Pleats

If you love to show off your legs, then mini pleated skirt is a great piece to have. Look for a sheer, lightweight pleated mini skirt or mini dress with wrapping details.

Wide Pleats

Yes, pleats come in different sizes.  Wide pleats work on several body types and help to define the waist. You want to go for a simple dress with a classy vibe. A great choice is the little black dress. Make sure the pleating starts at your natural waist line to ensure a tailored fit.

Baby Pleats

These smaller pleats add movement to garments. Look for baby pleats in lightweight fabric such as sheer or silk. As always, you want the pleats to start your waist.

Pleated Blouse

If skirts and dresses aren’t your thing, you can try the trend with a pleated blouse. Pair a pleated top with a pair of cropped pants and a sexy pair of heels to complete the look.
