One of spring’s biggest fashion trends this year is a pleated skirt. Now, I realize that pleated skirts can seem intimidating to wear, as well as a little too preppy, professional, and maybe even old-fashioned. I get it! Knife pleats (the tiny, sharp pleats you usually see on midi skirts) are also difficult to take care of and have a very *~*high fashion*~* quality to them. Even larger pleats can seem difficult to wear because they can easily look very dressed up or mature.
