Pleats Please! Wear Spring’s Prettiest Skirt Trend Now, for Less

Spring Pleats: Get the Look for Less

The skirt, specifically the pleated skirt, was a staple on the Spring 2011 runways, where designers played with lengths, patterns, and styles. Pleating was used primarily for mid length, neutral colored skirts, and spring dresses. Chiffon was the fabric of choice, which created an airy, ethereal effect when paired with the pleats.
