hong kong style dilemma: how to wear pleats

I've recently been emailed and quizzed a lot by my styling clients about pleated skirts....and yep, they are tricky to wear, but pleats are a key trend for Spring/Summer so why not try them? Skirts in general are making a come back this year, and after our obsession with the dress and skinny trousers, isn't it nice to see a touch of ladylike dressing? So here are some options and ideas on how to wear your pleats...

Q: Can I wear them? A: Yes, try to mix them up with some of the bright colours which are out at the moment, or toughen the look up with a leather jacket or rocking heels
Q: Will I look like a granny? A: Nope, just make sure you don't wear court shoes, try platforms or on-trend heels (see below the blush pink pleats styled by My-Wardrobe), ballet pumps, which were seen on the catwalk, are only for the brave
Q: What do I wear them with? A: Nothing bulky or floaty on top, team with a white or grey t-shirt / slim blouse / colourful skinny belt / lightweight knits...keep it simple

Carrie Pleat Skirt from Whistles in a delicious pink, I guarantee this will be sold out soon!

Tick two trends with one item, a camel number from Zara

Armin: 'Well, first of all, I don't plan on putting 'Suddenly Summer' on the new album.

On April 5, 1986, Jean-Michel Jarre performed a
legendary concert Rendez-Vous Houston: A City in Concert.
It seems like that must have come with an enormous amount
of pressure.
