One minute it's a strappy sundress, the next an off-the-shoulder mini dress. Of course, there are certain styles of dresses that stand the test of time.
One style that has always been popular in this "dress of endless glamour" arena is the shirred dress. what clothes? let me explain. Pleated dresses consist of horizontal threads of elastic that pull the fabric together and extend across the bust, waist, and neckline—a snug fit, if you will. While the rest of the skirt flows over your body, creating a relaxed silhouette. All right? The best part about pleated dresses is that they fit everyone – and I’m talking about being someone who rarely fits everything. The pleated portion of the fabric fits snugly against your body, giving you shape and support, and honestly, you hardly feel like you're wearing the rest of the skirt. It's that easy.
