Pleats, Please!

Pleats, Please!
Flowing and floor length, silky or short, pleats were a hot trend in spring and we are pleased to tell you that they are back for Autumn/Winter! Far beyond the realm of schoolgirl uniforms, pleats are a stand- out classic style that will never go out of fashion. Top designers Valentino, Stella McCartney and Chloé featured this trend from barely visible celebs to nude pleats and voluminous, flowing folds. image 1   From petite folds to knife pleats, celebrities like Katie Holmes, Kate Middleton, Diana Vickers, Rihanna and Carey Mulligan rock this trend on an everyday basis. Katie Holmes nails the trend in a fuchsia pink pleated dress. Copy Katie by wearing floor length pleats for the most flattering look and combining your outfit with simple accessories, such as her black clutch bag.
