Pleats me, Please.

Pleated skirts take me back to the iconic image of Marilyn Monroe and her lovely white pleated dress fluttering in the upward breeze on top of a subway vent in New York in The seven-year itch.

Although pleats have been around since ancient Egypt, they have recently made a comeback making the pleated midi skirt a huge trend this season. If you too want to make your skirt sartorially present-day, all you got to do is simply add pleats!

There was a time when I thought that pleated skirts are only for school girls. Just realised how wrong I was.
There are so many ways to wear it, If you want to be office-appropriate, you could wear it with a crisp white shirt and thin-strapped heels or with sneakers and a t-shirt if you are going out for coffee with a friend. You can also add a dose of glamour by pairing it up with a beautiful lace bralette and a choker necklace.

The one that I am wearing is less flowy because I wanted something formal but I am soon investing in a pleated maxi metallic skirt which also looks super gorgeous.

Have a splendid week ahead!
