Trend Translation: Pleats•
Posted on January 21 2016
The fashion schedule is impossible to follow these days. Designers are now expected to present six collections a year with ever increasing urgency to keep up with the fast-fashion "McFashion" brands. As we've already seen with Raf Simons of Dior and Lanvin's Alber Elbaz, the stress of this intense schedule is causing titans of the industry to bow out.

We know that in 2016, women are busier than ever with 60-hour work weeks, taking the kids to dance recitals, volunteering responsibilities, enjoying time with friends, caring for loved ones, or just taking care of yourself!

- Going for a skirt? Highlight your waist! For the most slimming look, make sure to show off the waistband of the skirt (otherwise you appear shapeless and lost). So whether you go simple and pair it with a tee, tough with a tank and leather jacket, or sexy with a lacy cami, tuck it in!
- Pick the best pleat style for your shape. Stitched down pleats lie flat at the top- ideal if you're insecure about your tummy. Knife pleats are the least voluminous: perfect for bigger bottoms! Accordion pleats offer an hourglass effect because they're full through the hips.
