I have always loved pleats for their feminine feel and soft structure (as evidenced by the photos shown above). These pieces are so airy & pretty for the summer months and they can really help balance out your shape in a flattering way. In my opinion, a pleated skirt (knee-length, midi or maxi) is a wardrobe essential.
