Pretty pleats

Pleats are everywhere, but they can be a hard look to pull off without looking matronly. To style yourself the Hautedropoff way,  wear a pleated skirt with a fitted sweater or a short jacket with a tight t-shirt underneath, oh and unless you are 5'7, heels are a must! 

We have given some examples of stores that are carrying pleated skirts – but if you don't want to invest a lot of money, walk into any vintage store (even the salvation army) and we are pretty sure you will find an “orginal” pleated skirt.
