Pleats and Thank You



Spring Dress By Sydney Herman“Politely Pulling Off a Perfect Perennial”

Mind your manners.

Is chivalry dead?  Have manners gone out of style?  Living in such a bustling big city I sometimes believe that.  Fast paced careers, jammed subway cars and unending honking can sometimes cause me to forget my “Pleats and Thank Yous.”

Excuse me.

Jumper Pleated Lace SkirtI don’t mean to be crass, but the pleat trend for Spring is smokin’ hot.  New York Fashion Week showcased pleats in a myriad of colors, styles and wearability.  From dresses to mini and maxi skirts in every color of the rainbow, it is clear that any woman can find a way to easily pull off this style.  Luckily for you, doB found many options from dangerously dark to elegantly etherial.

Milly's Sunburst DressPardon, sexy coming through.

Rag & Bone Ezra Pleated Leather Mini The Juniper Pleated Lace Skirt from Reiss is the perfect piece for a Sunday brunch with the family.  Enjoy a latte which matches this stylish shade.  Milly’s Sunburst Dress is a bit pricier, but we have a feeling that with the tones of the dress and a vintage leather jacket, you can politely pull this off in the Fall as well.  Even good girls can look “bad,” and the Rag & Bone Ezra Pleated Leather Mini will have men lining up at the bar to kindly offer you a cocktail.  For a little fun in the sun, don’t forget to check out the Bubble Print Bubble Print Pleated Skirt Pleated Skirt from Thakoon that’ll show off your glowing gams.

 Airtex Pleated Skirt Frugal fashionistas don’t have to feel left out.  The Airtex Pleated Skirt at Topshop and Pleated Colorblock Dress from Forever 21 kill two trends with one purchase; brights and pleats.

Pleated Colorblock Dress Whether or not you believe in karma, we can all agree that being polite doesn’t always mean you have to look plain.

Pleats, Please!
