Incorporating pleats into your own wardrobe / by Adams Bellouis

I had a pleated pink sparkly skirt from Topshop a few years ago I got a little use out of, but just yesterday I bought a grey, weather-appropriate pleated skirt to take it's place. I've compiled here two different seasons of pleats, SS16 and FW15, illustrating different ways to wear them yourself. There's something super-chic about wearing a mid-length skirt that fits you in all the right places. I bought one top that fits like the Sonia Rykiel look above; cropped with a wider cut to accentuate the waistband of the skirt (mine has three-quarter length sleeves). I bought another top, with grey scrunch detailing all over it, to fit tucked in, more like the Marc Jacobs silhouette below.
