^the black pieces are fantastic! The Zaras look pretty great, I wonder if they're still in store or sold out by now.

I don't get why pleat can be a trend. It appears in EVERY SINGLE SEASON. And if there're skirts/dresses, there wiill naturally be pleat. That Pleat is everywhere because it's an essential technique makes it trendy too ? I dont get it

I think pleat will be worth talking about if it appears on what it normally doesnt appear on. But pleated skirt or dress is no more a trend

^ I think pleated skirts are usually associated with certain looks.
For me, they usually conjure the image of old-fashioned and below-the-knee. The latter has been in for a few seasons now and to reference, but also it seems to mock, such an uber-dated look Miu Miu completely turned the below-knee pleated skirt on it's head for spring with a strange, metallic vintage cool.

P.S. pleated skirts also bring girls school uniforms to mind, which have been repeatedly used to convey an innocent sexiness.

I prefer the slim pleats to the wider ones, which will always remind me of my terrible school uniform, sadly!

The Zara skirts are gorgeous, although I do think that this look works better in the shorter style. It lends a certain elegance to the mini.

When I first saw this trend, I wanted to immediately write a comment about how much I dislike pleats... but after looking at the pictures posted I'm a convert. These pictures are wonderful- absolutely gorgeous. I'm liking the fact that they can be designed soft and feminine or hard and grudge

I love bags, bags, and more bags!

It's adorable and extremely feminine. Girls look amazing wearing pleat skirts.
