Styling 101: Pleats

on
Monday, August 01, 2016
The first time I encountered pleats was back in 2014 when I was modelling for a local brand's collection. Though my first impression of the fabric wasn't all that enjoyable due to the humid weather in Jakarta, I had a glimpse idea of how appealing and cosy it would be to wear pleats in cooler temperature.

You know you just couldn't skip Issey Miyake when taking pleats into account, could you? And I've been adoring shades of blue lately. I mean, these shades make color mixing seems so easy, not to mention they complement my skin tone. Here's a proof: see my previous post's selfie. In addition, the lace-up trend appears to dominate the entire season. I've noticed it doesn't only look surprisingly hip on clothes, but also on shoes and sandals.

  1. Pleats are such a classic and chic detail. That Issey Miyake dress is just gorgeous and would look smashing on you!

    I would watch W if Lee Jong Suk wasn't in it. He's an actor I just don't enjoy. Glad to hear you like it though :)

  27. I used to hate pleats back in grade school. Funny how our minds broaden as we age. Now I love them. Great picks!

  28. I do love a good lace up sandal! Gladiators all the way this summer! I find pleats tend to be made of polyester fabric which is why it's hot in hot and humid climates.
