{Look of the Week}: Pretty in Pleats!


This week's look is all about one of winter's hottest trends, pleats.  Pleats are constantly reappearing on the fashion scene, dating back to the 15th and 16th centuries and becoming widely popular in the early 1900s, 1940s, and again in the 1970s.  Our look is all about this fabulous wine-colored accordion-pleated maxi dress with tie-top.  We layered a silky striped top underneath for a pop of rich color and texture.  For accessories we added an arm full of gold bangles and a simple gold belt to cinch in the waist.  We also have a rack of pleated dresses and skirts, so you can mix and match your own look!

shirt-$12                 purse-$20

All the celebrities love to wear accordian pleats of all colors and lengths!  Check out the above photos for some pleated outfit inspiration!

Accordian pleats are even all over the New York Fashion Week Runways.  Above are two looks from the Doo.Ri fall fashion show.  Check out this post on thefader.com to see even more photos of pleats from New York Fashion Week.
