Pleats a Plenty!

{American Apparel}

This spring it's all about lady like looks and what could possibly more ladylike than a pleated skirt?! However, pleats can sometimes be difficult for some women to wear. They may feel that if they are a little heavy in the hip area then a pleated skirt is out of the question. But this is simply not true! Just pair it with a longer style jacket or a flattering wrap style blouse that can be worn on the outside of the skirt. This will flatter your hips and elongate your body. The pleats create a fun flirty look. Think pleats are old fashioned and remind you of your grandmother? Well, who says that's a bad thing?? Grandma was quite stylish in her day! Now it's your turn to put your spin on the pleat. How will you wear this trend this spring? Send your pictures of how you wear pleats to and you may see yourself here on Laura's Style Digital Fashion Mag!
