FASHION TREND: Pleated Skirts

Pleated Maxi Skirts Fashion Trend - Michael Kors

Pleats are back for summer, but this time in airy chiffon. From mid-length numbers to floor-grazing maxis, Spring/Summer runways and recent red carpets have been replete with flowing accordion skirts. Michael Kors went with a rich emerald tone for his all-American interpretation of the pleated maxi skirt, while at Chloe hemlines were raised — Hannah MacGibbon’s ethereal creations were inspired by delicate ballerinas. Meanwhile Olivia Palermo stepped in patterned, floor-length Topshop pleats accessorized to perfection.

Which skirt do you like the best?
