Inspirational Monday: Pleats Please




Unless you live in a cave somewhere then you know that pleats are in for this season. You can't turn a page or a webpage without seeing a pleated skirt. Which is more then a-okay with me. I think I was a head of the game about a year or so ago when I bought my accordion pleated blue skirt from H&M but the more pleated skirts I see the more I want...MORE. Pleats give a dress or a skirt such great definition and add femininity. Even dark colors like black look more feminine with pleats. They just give it a nice soft look about them. Pleated skirts are fun to play with, you can go super feminine or give it a dress down look. I really love soft color pleated skirts and play up the feminine look like the photo that Candace Lakes took.

  1. SO funny you posted this: I just threw a gorgeous long pleated ballet-pink-colored skirt into the Goodwill pile Absolutely gorgeous but too high waisted to compliment my belligerently pear shape. Too gorgeous for me to slaughter for the sake of "making it work" too. Love pleats but they seem to hate me ha.
