SS2017 Trend: Pleated, Folded & Draped

Ruffles are dominating this year’s summer look, no doubt about it. They’re everywhere, on blouses, T-shirts, sweaters, skirts and even ruffled pants are making their way onto the streets. It seems like there’s no denying this trend. Yet for those who like things a little less romantic we’ve got some back-up options. In stead of ruffles you can also opt for pleats as origami-inspired pieces are quite the statement makers too. So how about a pleated skirt (as seen at Vionnet, Off White and Victoria Beckham)? Or would you prefer them on your top (as Jil Sander and Marni introduced)? And how about a little drape effect (shown by Sportmax and Loewe)? A perfect classic/dramatic detail to make your outfit just a little more interesting. And the ultimate excuse to leave your iron in your closet. Pleats please! 1,2,3, origami!
