Pleated Skirts: Would You Sport the Stylish Secretary Trend?
Well, the pleated skirt is making a major comeback in 2012, appearing in popular designer collections and on the hips of today's hottest celebrities.
The ultra-feminine design, with little pleats creating just the right amount of volume, has been spotted on stars like Taylor Swift, Kourtney Kardashian, Kim Kardashian, Kristin Cavallari and Leighton Meester. While some have opted for just-above-the-knee cuts of the style, other have gone for more modern mini versions.
Taylor Swift, for example, looks very sweet and demure in her classic yellow and red pleated skirts. She definitely plays up the conservative side of this trend by tucking in her shirts, pulling back her hair and wearing lower heels. “Glee” star Dianna Agron followed suit with a full-length maxi version.
Kim Kardashian, on the other hand, clearly takes a cue from the Gucci handbook and styles her mini gold pleated skirt with sky-high Louboutins and chic black accessories.
It's a trend that can go from preppy to sexy in seconds, which means the pleated skirt is certainly a versatile investment. One rule to remember with this trend is to pair pleated skirts with simpler tops since the skirt already has enough volume and texture on its own.
