spring/summer 2012 trend: pleats

so many beautiful trends for spring/summer 2012...i thought i would start listing some of them for you...and show ways in which they could be incorporated into your wardrobe...

pleats...think accordian...and they are everywhere! the most common is a 50's inspired pleated skirt...and while that is a great way to incorporate it into your wardrobe...some women will shy away from it...as the hip area is the one place they are not looking to bring attention to...

here is a nice example of one...where the pleats start below the hips...so...emphasis is off the hips...

a nice pleated design in a bathing suit...that little bit of extra detail...so lady like and feminine...

a maxi dress is always a fun way to look put together...without really trying to hard...

but don't stop here...as you will find pleating in blouses...jackets...a clutch purse...shoes...all you need to decide is how little or how much pleating you want...

is this a trend you are thinking of trying?
