Must Wear of the Week: Shine in Summer Pleats
The weather is FINALLY warming up (goodbye coats, helloo bikinis) and we are stripping off our turtlenecks and boots and grabbing our favorite summer dresses and sunnies. For the SS16 season, designers were lovvinngg them some summer dresses, which were found on literally every runway, and we can't get enough of them either! But this season, sun dresses aren't your typical A-line or babydoll shape (who else is having flashbacks of Paris Hilton's wardrobe circa 2004...ugh). We're now seeing a shift in shape, literally. Shift sun dresses are the new thing, but before you visualize a potato sack, these midi-length dresses are structured with pleat detailing, like this Stella McCartney look, giving the illusion of shape. Pleats are back people, embrace it. We're actually the real winners here because these frocks are loose and flowy so you're not dying of heat stroke AND they're chic. So when shopping for your perfect summer wardrobe, forget about pairing skirts with shirts or cropped pants. Go right for the dresses. Here are some of our favorites.  


Stella McCartney White Silk Pleated Dress


BCBG Pleated Dress


Blue Missoni Pleated Silk Strapless Dress


Halston Heritage Orange Silk Pleated Dress
