Old pleated dresses can be easily spiced up. What this means is, if you own a pleated dress, you can never be bored with it. Why? Generally, pleated dresses’ main design is their pleats.

If anything, some designers like Dior and Halston may throw in subtle details such as a sash, lace, minimal beadwork and eyelet among others. With that said, you can accentuate your own plain pleated dress with a sash or ribbon, or put a bow or flower. One dress, different accessories--you can basically wear it every day!
