Spring/Summer 2011 Fashion Trend: Tiny Pleats

Pleated skirts were featured in quite a few of the Spring/Summer 2011 collections (Above: Yohji Yamamoto; Chloe; Christopher Kane) this year. But I'm not talking about the huge school-uniform pleats; rather, the pleats that will be prominent this Spring and Summer are teeny-tiny giving the skirts a flowy feel. I really like this trend but have found that pleats (even the tiny variety) are not super flattering on bottom-heavy girls like myself. That is why I've included some other pleated options below that are not limited to just skirts! Below: Act Two Scene One dress for $119.99 on; Candle making shorts for $44.99 on; Cinderella's Samba one-shoulder dress for $42 on; Vero Moda pleated chiffon short sleeve top for $39.45 on; Cooperative pleated babydoll dress on sale for $39.99 on; Pins and Needles pleated knee-length skirt for $59 on; Tinley Road pleated top on sale for $19.97 on; Sparkle & Fade pleated chiffon miniskirt for $49 on; ASOS pleated long sleeve shift dress for $71.72 on; Sparkle & Fade chiffon skirt for $59 on; Halston Heritage pleated cocktail dress for $395 on; ASOS pleated one-shoulder bodycon dress for $71.72 on; Torn by Ronny Kobo "Nadya" pleated tank for $200 on
