Pleats make a skirt or dress look more feminine because they allow for movement of the fabric. Whether it’s box, accordion, kick, honeycomb or another variation, pleats add style to the garment.
Pleats can be traced back to Egyptian and Greek societies. Plisse, or a permanent crinkled or puckered effect, was used by Egyptians. It was an intensive process to get the desired look. Pleated garments were worn by the aristocratic and has an air of luxury.

With the official first day of winter just four days away, many of us have an important fashion question in mind—What kind of boots to wear? I love wearing boots but sometimes I even skip buying them, and think that winter is here for a short time. Why invest in boots when I already have a pair with me? But I have changed the way I think and I feel. Wearing boots is a must in winter and it will be unfair to your wardrobe, style and yourself if you don’t invest in at least one pair of great boots for this season. There is a variety of boots available in stores—from casual to formal, to leather and warm woolen boots.
When it comes to winter boots for women, there are thousands of different boots. Women can choose among many styles, fabrics and type of heel they prefer. There are no limits.
You can choose long boots, which are the most popular. Long winter boots are easy to wear and the perfect winter footwear. You don’t get snow in them and they keep you warm from the freezing cold. Long boots are made of fur, leather, suede and man-made materials. Long boots often go up to and over your knees. Although high heels are not the most functional winter boots, you can get winter boots with different heels to match your style and personality.
Flat Winter Boots
I personally think flat winter boots are the most versatile ones to go with any outfit. They look super chic. Suede boots for women can suit casual wear, as well as formal wear. They can be a comfortable and easy fit. Suede boots are available for different dresses in different designs and patterns like ankle-length suede boots, knee-length suede boots and thigh-high suede boots. You can also get variations in size and style of toes—square, pointy, round—and heel of suede boots for women.
The knee-high boots for women can be worn with dresses and skirts, such as with a short or mid-length skirt worn with stockings or leggings. They come in many colors as well as designs and patterns. They can be made of materials like synthetic rubber, polyvinyl carbonate or from pure leather. These boots can also be given a party look by making them glossy, shiny or sparkly.
I am definitely going to buy some cool and designer boots for myself. What about you? I am also buying some woolen and warm boots for my casual and chilly winter.

I love all kinds of shoes, but boots are my absolute favorite. Summer boots at the Anchorage Museum inspired this post. There’s nothing wrong with dashing boot-clad through the city in mid-90 degree weather.
