Is Your New Edge the Knife Pleat?

Here at theFashionSpot, we talk a good game about edgy dressing, and with good reason. It's sexy, it's cool and it has the potential to give us major confidence when we're walking the "mean" streets. Usually our discussion tends to lean in the direction of leather, metal and tough-girl accents. But this spring, we're bringing something new into the mix.

It's a new kind of edgy that's more literal and totally feminine. What is it? The sleek, serious knife pleat. We saw them sheerly sexy at Christopher Kane, metallic threaded at Haider Ackermann and floral printed at Nina Ricci. We've also seen them in a wide variety of colors and iterations at our favorite shops, done by our favorite brands. Take a gander at what we've found and ask yourself, is the knife pleat going to give you your new edge?
