We have good news: pleats aren’t going anywhere!
Accordion pleats dominated the catwalk for S/S 12, and we’re pleased to let you know that they’ll be reigning supreme come fall, so don’t be afraid to invest in a pleated number if there’s a special statement piece that you’re pondering over.
The F/W 12 runways also saw a host of designers putting their stamp on the pleated skirt — with looks from BCBG, Topshop Unique and Emilia Wickstead, just to name a few — ranging from chic leather to floaty retro numbers.
Wear the dreamiest of pleated skirts with light blouses, pretty jackets and statement flats. Come fall/winter, mix with tights, fur, boots or a tough biker jacket.
Experiment with one of our seasonal transitional looks below and you’ll be ahead of the fashion fold.
Plus, when winter finally does rear its ugly head, with these pleated beauties, wearing heavy trousers won’t be your only option.
