PLEATS, PLEASE

The accordion pleated skirt might not be anything new (did you know that it was originally created in the 1880’s for “skirt dancing?”), but they’re certainly making quite the appearance lately. Seen on many a street style blogger  – not to mention a certain Ms. Olivia Palermo – these petite pleats are a must-have in any wardrobe. I just love how feminine (and flattering!) they are.  I bought this ASOS version a couple of months ago, and I haven’t stopped wearing it since. I’ve got my eye on this burnt orange Tibi option too! It adds a perfect, swingy touch to any simple tee or blouse.
