Often when I think about pleats I’ll be reminded of my mom, on the days she would go to work wearing a pleated skirt. Thanks to fashion and the cycle of trends, this style has returned. It is more refined this time, with cool details and prints. So it’s neither an old lady trend nor an outdated look, it what’s happening right now.
Something I’ve always been attracted to is the texture of pleats, there’s just something about crushing it in your hand, letting go and then watching as it fell back into shape. Wondering how to wear it? Pleats make the otherwise ordinary skirt stand out, so think of it as the statement piece of the outfit. Also something to remember is that pleats often give skirts volume, so balance the outfit with “smaller” tops.
