If there is one underestimated piece of fashion in the world, it has to be pleated skirt or a dress. For years I have personally only associated this trend with the thought of a school uniform, but I regret my preconceived notions because if there is one thing this season has taught me it’s that the pleated dress makes for a chic AF ensemble. From framed red carpets to fierce street style moments, this classic design has appeared on the silhouettes of the hottest stars left and right. I never really appreciated just how versatile a pleated dress could be until now. In addition to the surplus of shapes, colors, and patterns, metallic versions of this dress are going to be everywhere this fall… which means you need, stat.
Here are some stunning and affordable pleated dresses you can rock this season.
