Of all the trends we’ve seen on the runways into the mainstream, it’s clear that pleats are making a dent on Fall fashion not just Spring.  This article will discuss specifically pleated skirts.  Whether they have knife, accordion, or superfine crystal pleats, these precisely folded skirts create a sophistication that goes beyond the pleats on your typical private school uniforms. Such detail will add the necessary femininity to your wardrobe.  Plus, pleated skirts look good in any length and almost in any material.



Pleats add volume without bulk, so figure issues are minimized. Since in pleated skirts the focus is on movement, pair with loose separates and keep hair simple.  Pair it with a pump for more professional look and pointy toe or open toe heel for a more evening or going out look.  And yes, ironing will not be easy, so factor in dry cleaning.
