I absolutely love pleats - from maxi skirts to little tennis skirts, I'm a fan of them all. But at times, I have also found them surprisingly hard to wear. Full pleated skirts can often add a little extra volume to your lower abdomen and hips (not my favorite place to add volume) and tennis skirts can sometimes come across as too, well, tennis-y.
This dress is actually amazing on its own and avoids all of the downfalls that sometimes accompany pleats - it's part of why I love it so much. Plus, even though the pleats are the perfect tennis length, the fact that the dress is a gorgeous chambray takes the look completely off the court. But even though this dress is pretty much perfect on its own, I still like pairing it with a blazer - which is my secret little no-brainer trick for keeping my pleats looking stylish than costumey.
How do you wear your pleats?
