Prim Pleats

Accordion pleats are the thinnest type of pleat that looking, well, prim.  The style is huge for spring, so be sure to get a style that fits your add texture while keeping the garment personality and routine.  For the office pick one that hits right at your knee, best in a sunny color like tangerine or lavender.  For fabrics in the workplace, stick with silk or double layer polyester.  If you seek a fancier design, add pizzazz to the trend by purchasing it in bronze or gold and buy one a couple inches above your knee.  Pair it with a white blouse for day and a black t-shirt and funky bright heels for night.  If your spring days will be more carefree and filled with outdoor picnics (or dreams of them) try the pleat trend in a miniskirt.  The look is cute and youthful and it will remind you what spring is all about. $27
