Without hesitation each year pleats storm onto runways and our local high street stores, but for this Winter there are three amazing pleats to look out for – Knife pleats, Sunray pleats and Sunburst pleats.
If you are confused and don’t think you will be able to identify key differences here is a quick guide to assist you:
Knife Pleats – Individual pleats that follow the same line.
Sunray/Sunburst Pleats – Single pleats but begin smaller at the top whilst going wider towards the bottom creating a flared appearance.
Previously documented for MACS Fashion were sheer maxi skirts for the late days of summer and early days of autumn. Not everyone likes Maxi skirts so maybe try a skirt/dress at or above the knee. Days have taken a sudden chill so sheer maxis might be daunting to wear, joyfully there is a solution to transform summer pieces into winter pieces that can worn over again. Opt for heavier material such as cotton, if not layer your sheer pleats with thick wool hosiery, a winter coat, a thick knitted top and trimmings.
No doubt heels craft an outfit to its finest, but so do a killer pair of rock inspired boots. Perfect for the winter weather if kept in tip top condition can be carried in spring 2012 as timeless classics refuse to go out of style. If you want to impress incorporate TWO trends into one by pairing a faux fur jacket or a fetish inspired leather jacket to form a fashion dream come true.
Shorter hemmed skirts and dresses may be included within this trend, which works if you want to tackle a smart sophisticated impression. Team a cosy knit jumper with a tailored shirt underneath, cable knit tights, statement necklace and androgynous brogues especially for the petite beauties.
