THE PLEATED SKIRT

Harper’s Bazaar (Malaysia) - - Style -

The big skirt is big news for Spring 2014. Shin-graz­ing, sweep­ing, ma­jes­tic – frankly, this skirt is not for ev­ery­one. The pleated ver­sion, on the other hand, can do all of the above, as well as look crisply mod­ern and be much eas­ier to wear. Look for state­ment fabrics, ei­ther gauzy muslin and chif­fon, in light colours or shades of white, like Calvin Klein’s, or Jonathan Saun­ders’s tiered lay­ers, which will float grace­fully as you move; or seek out neo­prenes and duchesse satins, which give both vol­ume and soft­ness. Make sure the pleats fall from the hips rather than your waist for the most tummy-flat­ten­ing, hip-flat­ter­ing ef­fect. Wear with: a tu­nic top or a tai­lored cot­ton men’s shirt. There’s noth­ing waif-like or wist­ful about this one.
