The ivory pleated cutout dress that Mischa Barton wore to the Women For Women International Gala in London last night teaches a valuable lesson in fashion: that given the right circumstance, any trend can be fabulous. Take for example cutouts; when on a super-tight minidress, they can scream tacky, but pair cutouts with accordion pleats and voila, they instantly become classy. What we appreciate most about Mischa's chosen frock is that the silky fabric and accordion pleats make it sophisticated, while the side cutouts lend much-needed sass and youthfulness. Together they make a dynamic duo worth dabbling in. Inspired by Mischa's look, we set out to find equally classy-cum-sassy pleated cutout pieces to add to your wardrobe. Shop your favorite below.
I admit, I have a thing for exceptionally unique frocks. They have the ability to elevate you to center of attention at any party. With Spring comes weddings, showers, and all sorts of parties, so wear this Vintage Asymmetrical Pleated Wrap Dress, bust 33, to your next event and watch heads spin. The color is OK, but I'm in love with the dainty accordion pleats and asymmetrical hem. Take a styling cue and don a flower in your hair, too.
