I’ve always loved the idea of mixing bold colors and prints together. As spring makes way for summer, this season is the perfect time to try all sorts of color, style and texture combinations without looking out of place. I chose to attempt this bold move with a pleated dress.

One thing I love about pleated dresses is the fact that they are timeless classics. The clean pleated lines of the dress create very flattering movements as you walk. Pleated dresses also lend themselves to a variety of occasions.
From an everyday look to more dressed up events like work, weddings, cocktail parties, girls night out, and Sunday service. It’s no wonder that the Duchess of Cambridge has been spotted wearing this style.
For my look, I chose this gorgeous high neck pleated dress (get here) in burgundy color. I was sold on the tie belt, unique sleeves midi length silhouette. With graduation fast approaching, I know that this dress will serve me well for a long time.
To soften the tone of the dress, it made perfect sense to style the dress with a lighter, more youthful color. This light blue classic pumps and dome satchel pulled the look together. I really liked the way this pleated dress outfit turned out and I look forward to experimenting with more bold colors this season.
