    PLEATS PLEASE

    12 June 2020

    By Franco Lorenzon @nonsololook

    The legendary Marilyn Monroe wore it in the cult movie "Some Like It Hot". That white dress with a pleated skirt fluttering over the grilles of the New York City subway made a sensation. Today, more than ever, fashion doesn't make a fuss: it makes a thousand. Let's discover together the key pieces of one of the most feminine trends of the moment. 

    "Plissé all over", seem to suggest us the catwalks of spring summer 2020, on the wave of a new and uncontrollable lightness, where designers suggest all kinds of pleats. From those that embody the highest expression of femininity called "soleil", to the "accordéon" version, similar to an accordion bellows, to the flat ones scattered in more or less regular games on dresses, skirts and tunics. Which one will you choose?

    HERE'S HOW TO WEAR THE TREND PLEATS

    DAY:

    IF YOU'RE A FASHION ADDICT

    Your mantra is to amaze. Even for day wear appointments, don't give up that touch of originality that translates into wearing eccentric, sometimes provocative garments and accessories. N.21, fully expresses this seductive mood with its outfit consisting of a transformative sweater, coordinated with a pleated transparent skirt worn over shorts. All, of course, in matching colours. 

    IF YOU'RE AIMING FOR A CHIC STREET STYLE

    Jerseys, sweatshirts, leggings, all garments reminiscent of the sporting world and have always been part of your wardrobe. Only you like to mix them with something very modern, better if shiny. The look suggested by Chorustyle includes wearing them together: the classic jersey and leggings intended for leisure time worn with the metal effect of silver in the sleeves and pleated skirt. Cool!

    THE ACCESSORY:

    THE BAG

    Of all the female accessories, the bag is the most useful and indispensable. It is no coincidence that it is said that to really know a woman you only need to see what's inside. This spring summer 2020, the hottest shapes see mini sizes for the evening and maxi sizes for the day. Beatrice .b conquers us with the super bag with its pleated processing in three colour variants. Beautiful and versatile, just what you need for a dynamic and detail-conscious woman like yourself. 

    IF YOU FEEL LIKE THE LIFE OF THE PARTY

    Don't be surprised if your nickname is "parsley." Any chance to party before the lockdown was yours. When it comes to planning an evening, no one can do it better than you. Exuberant, communicative, passionate about dancing. What if you listen to music? You can't resist and let yourself get carried away on the dance floor. What better way to do it than with a pleated panta-palace that flutters mischievously at your every step. The model that's right for you is Sfizio, made in a delicate floral fantasy. 

    IF YOU WANT TO GO LONG

    There are occasions where the dress code requires you to wear a long dress. In all these circumstances having the right dress is the best business card to make your mark. Sfizio, is the centrepiece with its creation characterized by a deep "V" neckline, empire cut and wide long skirt with contrasting colored band. Every single detail is not left to chance, especially the glittering metallic nuance that will make your complexion shine, whatever it is.
