Pleats are nothing new. Usually adored down a skirt, pants or dress they have always reminded me of special occasions. I bought a pair a few years ago and wish I had kept them. They were navy, wide legged, and had a thick brown belt. Regardless, the trend is coming back and I'm grabbing every style available.

I really love the way pleats and layered fabric adds volume to your look, complimenting your frame while allowing the design of the garment itself be the focal point. I added a plain sweater and boots as a result, and can't wait to wear crop tops and body suits when it gets warmer, the drawstring waist gives nice comfort and moving away from the standard zipper is refreshing.
While I've seen this trend all over Europe lately Zara seems to do it best, It was hard for me to leave their Stockholm Vasagatan location empty handed. Keep an eye out for that post coming soon, I found the perfect bargain piece that pays tribute to this trend that you will love.
Below are some of my favourite pleated & layered pieces from various designers. I'd love to know, which one is your favourite?
