Ask us to make a sentence ending with the word "pleats" and we would have responded with, "We wouldn't be caught dead in...". This Halston Heritage Pleated Maxi Skirt
($340) changes our tune, happily. Maybe it's the fact that Halston opted for a full, flowing length instead of the traditional brush-the-knees substitute math teacher cut, or it could be the unapologetic choice of salmon for a color. Either way, it has us thinking "glamorous" instead of "birthday present from Grandma we plan on burying in the backyard". For that, we'll even forgive it for being dry clean only.
