Pleats are making a comeback ladies and gentleman! Remember your grandma’s pleated maxi skirt, well if she’s still got it, go
“borrow” steal it from her closet! It’s the latest trend that’s been taking over the fashion scene. In my opinion, next fall it’s gonna be all about the pleat… “about the pleat, about the pleat, no trouble!”
Frankly, I’ve never a big fan of mixing bold colors. If you’d taken a look at my closet a few years ago, you’d have seen lots of black, white and denim. Lately though, as my style has evolved, I’ve been loving mixing different colors and fabrics.
When I first saw these pants, I immediately knew I’ll get a ton of wear out of them. Because the color is deep, they can easily transition from summer to fall and even winter, well at least Californian winter! Even though they’re absolutely great styled with a more neutral or even black top, they’re even more gorgeous with a bold color such this top!
I wore this outfit last Friday on our date night, and I got so many compliments on it. The contrast in colors and in fabric is extremely eye catching and alluring!
The pleats add a metallic effect to the fabric. All the shadows created by the ripples give the illusion of a two toned fabric.
Are you a fan of pleats? How would you style it? Let me know!
