Pleats were all over the SS11 catwalk, in every imaginable variation. Whether box or razor sharp, sheer or structured, there are so many choices to fall in love with the pleat this season. Pleats can add an extra dimension to a garment, especially if you are wearing one colour. It is also a great way of wearing a free flowing look if you are not of the boho tribe.
One of the key things to remember when wearing pleats is that it creates volume and bulk, so avoid wearing pleats in areas that you to don't want to add too! You just have to remember to keep the proportions right. For an easier option, try a pleated dress, then you don't have to worry about perfecting the balancing act.
