Pleats were a big trend at New York Fashion week for Spring 2016. This is just a quick post to show how pretty pleats can be. My friend Betty snagged this Leifsdottir pleated dress off the rack recently at Anthropologie for me. Unfortunately, they are all out but I just want to show the different ways you can wear this trend this spring (here is a micro-pleated chiffon skirt by ASOS that is similar in effect for the swing of the skirt).
But pretty pleats aren’t just for a special occasion. Here are some ways to get pleats into your everyday wardrobe:
White pleated cotton shirt with denim jeggings and boots (And special cameo appearance from my dog Lucky). Apparently he is a fan of pleats too!. I love how the pleats turn an otherwise plain white shirt into something just a little more special.
And into your weekend or weekday wardrobe: a classic spring transition pea coat with a pleated back.
This is my friend Betty’s jacket – but I wish it were mine. This jacket will outlive any trends. The front is your classic double breasted pea-coat styling, but it is the back that is to die for. It’s the pleats that make this jacket! Unfortunately, this jacket seems to sold out, but here is a similarly gorgeous Burberry jacket.
And last, but not least, a few Anthropologie sale picks (act FAST).
Anthropologie is currently having a sale but as you can tell, items are quickly disappearing (all of the items above except for the Burberry jacket, I picked up on sale in store but are sold out online).
Below are a few steals that are still available & caught my eye . They have high reviews and still have some PETITE sizes left.
