Pleats have been all the rage this 2012 spring season. It’s been going on for a while now but I’ve just recently allowed myself to be swept up with the trend. Although I loved the current styles from the get-go, the pleats reminded me of some skirts I used to wear in high school. I did not particularly enjoy school so basically anything that reminds me of those times I hate. Harsh, I know, but it’s how I feel.
On to 2012! I just adore these flowy maxi skirts and dresses.
I recently purchased this Jessica Simpson dress from Nordstrom:
I also love the floral print that is so on trend right now as well! After I bought it I got really excited because I thought it would be great for an upcoming family photo shoot-can’t wait:)
Other pleated dresses and skirts I love this season:
BCBG Max Azria color blocking
Burberry staying classy
Aquilano Rimondi bringing freshness and softness with this chiffon number
Christian Siriano mixing the maxi skirt with simple tee
And add a pop of color to your wardrobe:
Piperlime by Enza Costa
Saks Fifth Avenue by BCBG Max Azria
