What’s up, friends?
First off, Happy Halloween!! If you missed my Halloween Happenings blog last week, be sure to check it out for a treat of #ThingsToDo for the spooky holiday tonight. Let me know what you choose!
Once Halloween is over, I immediately start thinking about fall fashions and new looks I can try. In my endless Instagram and Pinterest scrolling, I started to see a pattern… pleats. And honestly, I realized how much I’m in love with them! I never thought I could pull pleats off, but after trying on a few pieces recently, I’ll #humblebrag and say I was rockin’ this look.
There are so many different styles of pleats. From a casual weekend look to workwear that will be great for the 9 to 5, I just couldn’t help myself.
So of course, I thought I would share my finds with you and give you the 411 on Dressy vs. Casual pleats.
And please tell me, which side suits you best?
J.Crew Factory stole my heart again with their Pleated Shift Dress in Wool Flannel for only $64.50. Perfect for work and fast forward to those holiday parties, this vintage forest shade is icing on the cake, right?
Pair your pleated dress with a chic blazer for the chilly office temps and a playful necklace for a glitzy touch.
Okay, if this look doesn’t scream, “Blair Waldorf on the steps of the Met” (thanks for the inspo Gossip Girl) I don’t know what does. I love the mix and match of stripes and pleats here with a sophisticated loafer. Let’s go piece by piece!
Show your feet some TLC and try out these little loafers from Gap Factory. Trust me, I didn’t think I could pull these off either, but just go for it! You’ll be surprised.
And you can’t forget the jewels. J.Crew Factory always has eclectic options to suit any neckline like this cutie for only $24.50.
Well, what will it be? Dressy or Casual? I prefer to go with both. 😉 There are endless options and with the TangerStyle Holiday Shopping Pass, get an early start on that holiday shopping! I know you’ll put it off so I’m giving you an excuse not to! Share your photos of you playing pleats with me on Instagram at @TangerOutlets using #TangerMillennial!
