Pleats, please: 10 ways to rock the trend for work and play
This is such a sweet and chic weekend look, no? The neutral colour palette is really pleasing on the eye, and this getup is all you need to channel subtly glam sporty vibes (sans exercising, of course).
We can’t emphasise enough just how much we love this #OOTD, which is super classy and perfect for just about any occasion. You can never go wrong with a turtleneck tucked into a pleated skirt, which comes with lace inserts to boot. The dark hues are work-appropriate yet not boring. As the final flourish, add a metal choker and you’re all ready to slay.
The much-anticipated weekend is all about bringing sexy back. Match an open-back top with an interesting bow detail with a bronze pleated skirt to look fabulously put together. Throw on some comfy sandals to nail your weekend brunch look.
Don’t rule out pleated pants for the office – opt for a crop top (ensure your pants are high waisted) and add on a smart navy blue jacket to look professional and trendy. If you’re feeling bold, go with a pair of sexy red heels for a striking finishing touch.
Try playing around with textures – this dainty combination of lace and pleats creates much visual interest without being jarring. We’re so digging the peekaboo effect of the top, which makes you look sweet with a tinge of sexy.
You don’t always have to tuck in your top to look well coordinated. Switch things up by wearing a crisp white blouse and cinching your waist with a belt for that much-needed definition. Don’t forget the heels and voila, you’re all set to impress at work.
There’s just something very alluring about this luxe 1970s getup… sometimes, it’s go big or go home. Don’t be afraid to experiment with the same material from head to toe; you’ll be pleasantly surprised by the outcome. And will you just look at that glorious big pleat skirt with the world map stamped on it?
If you’re all about #minimalism, you can definitely count on a sweater with flared pleated sleeves, which will easily spice up your outfit. Doesn’t this piece just make you want to twirl all day long and admire the sleeves in motion? Go with green earrings for a nice pop of colour.
Let your inner animal run wild with this fun tiger T-shirt. Be sure to tuck it into the silver pleated skirt to show off the quirky message on the waistband. Seal the deal with a bold coloured sling bag and a pair of chic mules.
Pairing stripes on stripes wouldn’t hurt because hey, there’s no right or wrong when it comes to fashion. This whimsical combination is certainly a head-turner, and we like that there’s some sort of continuity with the pink stripes. And did you notice the stripes on Yoyo’s handbag as well?
