Pretty in Pleats

23 Feb

I know most people think of school girls or Mens dockers pants when they think of pleats.  No more!  Pleats have come a long way.  What I love most about pleats is that they add such a whimsical texture to clothing while still having a tailored feel to it.  There are all kinds of pleats from traditional zigzag  to pintucked(usually narrow) to larger box pleats. Here are some pieces featuring all three of these pleating styles. SO CUTE! Royal blue pleated dress($24.80), cocoa pleated neckline dress($27.80) and Rose box pleated dress($18.50) all available at Forever21. Green pintucked blouse($295) and teal pintucked dress($515) both available at Saks Fifth Avenue. Green box pleated skirt($35) available at Lulus.

 

 

notice the nude shoes, they match anything.
