The fashion cycles have continued to turn and brought pleat dresses back into fashion this season. The most popular pleat dress style currently, is the fine pencil pleat made from soft flowing fabrics, usually Chiffon. It is usually the skirt of the Pleated dress which is actually pleated but some have turned this classic look upside down gathering the torso or bust area of the dress into tiny pleats and attaching a straight fitted skirt.

What accessories should you wear with your pleated dress?
Because of the soft silhouette created by the flowing fabrics and the pleats it is usually best to wear delicate strappy high-heeled sandals with these dresses and carry a neat small handbag, possibly a clutch bag.

Make sure the jewellery you choose is also fine and delicate, don’t forget the overall impression you are creating is delicate, feminine and pretty so a pashmina would be a good choice to keep your arms warm rather than a hey jacket or coat.
