Pretty Pleats


When us ladies picture pleats, I think many get scared off by the memories of preppy school skirts. Remember those hideous PE skirts you were forced to wear? Or the frumpy, grey flannel to-the-knee skirts?

URGH.

Well, I'm hoping to change your opinion towards pleats. I want you to forget all about school and, instead, to focus your mind on lovely, flowy, elegantly draped pleated skirts. Think something straight out of Mad Men. 

I love the way they look (they make me feel like Marilyn Monroe), I love the way they suit every figure in the world, and I love the way they make me want to twirl and twirl and twirl around.

Here are our pick of the best. Just pare with a basic grey vest and leather jacket for a cool, urban edge.
