Pleats will always be a classic. They can be worn in so many ways, from the classic circle skirt to detail on a crisp button up or cashmere sweater. There's something for everyone. Tight knife pleats for a preppy look, a relaxed sun pleat for a boho feel, or the most feminine (and my absolute favourite right now) accordion pleat. I love mixing this girlie style with a leather jacket, a rocker tee and some slip on sneakers.
Clu is one brand that can totally reinvent the pleat and find the perfect balance of edge and femininity. I'm obsessed with their cashmere sweater dresses and cardigans right now. Shop Clu here.
Pleats have this romantic way of reminding me of the past, but lately they've never felt so fresh. They have a special place in my heart that way... and in my closet.
