Chloé without a doubt showed varied styles in pleats and used soft natural tones, great designs to be inspired by.

For more colour, designer Christian Siriano really had some show stopping designs and was rocking the colour blocking trend.

Which ever is your most loved style there are plenty of designs on the high street to choose from, This summer with so many trends to look at, I think the pleat is one of the most wearable ones. Below a gorgeous pleated dress from Oasis £65, this dress is fitted at the waist and will create a nice silhouette. Team with wedges for summer. Also a hit with our previous post on candy colours for Spring!
