One of the best ways to add a bit of movement and flirt into your wardrobe is purchasing pieces with timeless feminine details. This season, the trend that offers all of the above is pleating. From dresses to skirts to jumpsuits and even tops, fresh pleated pieces are showing up a variety of color palettes and fabrications, giving this classically feminine silhouette and chic update. We are big fans!
Our favorite way to wear it? With a top. We absolutely love this white blouse by Veronica Beard. She’s taken a classic piece and made it completely brand new with long, shutter pleats down the back. This is such a great top to wear to the office to spice up your professional wardrobe, or with a pair of leggings while running errands. It’s so versatile and makes for a great layering piece that works for every body type.
To create a classic and clean look, we paired the blouse with black skinny jeans, a nude pump, and a red clutch for a pop of color.
Michael’s Styling Tip: We recommend buying a classic silhouette with pleating as the added detailing; it will make for a piece that remains timeless season after season.
