Punchy pleats: FEMAIL picks out the best buys for embracing this season’s trend

  • Emily Monckton shares her advice for embracing this season’s pleat trend
  • She takes inspiration from Joely Richardson and Celine Dion
  • British style expert reveals a selection of High Street stores offering the look

Eye-catching plissé and pleats are the key to a stylish and forgiving outfit this summer. Following wow-factor electric blue dresses in Versace’s spring/summer show, and the much-loved Pleats Please collection by Issey Miyake, it’s no surprise the trend has hit the High Street. 

Add shoes in an equally rich jewel tone, and standing out has never been easier. Heading to a restaurant? Team a dress by Essentiel Antwerp with shoes by Loeffler Randall. Planning a staycation? Try a statement sunhat by Next.
