Pretty in Pleats

I don’t know about you, but I’ve always associated pleated skirts with school uniform. I’ve always had a penchant for them, though (school uniform not so much), so I was pleased to see that the SS’11 runways were awash with pleated styles.

Par exemple…

Hannah McGibbon opted for below-the-knee, light-as-a-feather pleated skirts at Chloé.

Things were similarly neutral but shorter and less floaty at the wonderful Karen Walker show.

So, the fashion world loves pleats. We love pleats here at Innocuous Whispers, and so should you.

And here is the good thing: you don’t have to wait until the Spring/Summer collections hit the shops, nor do you necessarily have to blow the budget by buying something designer. You see, it turns out that pleats have a timeless appeal, and I don’t just mean for the people who make decisions on school uniforms, whoever they may be. Oh no, you can buy pleats NOW. Be prepared for the warmer seasons. Or just put your middle finger up at the warmer seasons and wear your new pleated skirt with tights.
