Pretty pleats made a major splash on the Spring 2012 runways, where we saw a plethora of pleated pieces in all shapes and shades. And these weren’t your average school-girl pleats. Instead, they took on a more grown-up form, radiating ladylike refinement with an unexpected touch of cool.
Pleats can also be quite practical. For day, keep it sleek with a crisp button up or casual knit with structured pumps or basic flats. For night, you can have a little more fun and add a bit of an edge to the look with daring platforms, statement jewelry and a cropped bomber or cool vest.
