Pleats are back, baby! As we all know, this look can be a tough one, depending on your shape. Keep in mind that, no matter how big a look is, you shouldn't wear it if it makes YOU look big. Hahaha! But, seriously, if you find that the pleats add unwanted inches to your hips, let the skirt fall pleat-less from the waist until midway down and then begin to pleat. Or find a fabric that is soft and flowing rather than one with structure because it will lay better. In the end, if it doesn't work, skip it. There will be plenty of other trends this season that look gorgeous on you! By the way- it you say the word "pleats" too many times in a row, it starts to sound really nonsensical. I feel like this blog is one pleat away from that fate.:)
