love the pastel pleated Prada dress. Absolutely stunning!
Continuing with the theme of Spring 2012 being feminine and flirty, pleats are a major trend, and a great alternative if you're not a fan of the peplum skirt. Seen on the catwalks of major designers such as Chloe and Prada, all pleats are a go with knife pleats to box pleats. Own a piece of pleats from summer dresses and if you want a double trend hit, then go for a pastel palette. Or maybe you're a fan of the cigarette trouser which is a major trend right now- you could pair them with a pleated chiffon blouse for work. Whatever your style, pleats can fit perfectly around it.
