Pleat trend
August 24, 2014, 1:24 pm

The last time both sides might have worn pleats was forcibly through school uniforms, but we think the utilitarian, stiff-but-flowy shape lends itself perfectly for both tomboyish and feminine style.

The Tomboy Way: A pleated skirt is your version of frill, so keep the rest of your look boxy and boyish. An oxford and overcoat are your typical workday fare, and spectator-shoe inspired booties keep it sleek, but still you.

The feminine Way: Pleats are basically just a different sort of ruffle, so double up on this like you would a peplum dress. A pleated top over a pleated skirt is subtle genius.
