This popular style concept from the 90s has been revived once again, as filmstars and fashionistas showcase the trend at glam parties.

This entire year has seen a resurgence of fashion trends that was popular decades back. From A-line cuts to bell sleeves. Micro-pleating that was once popular in the 90s is back with a bang with top actresses flaunting their style in micro-pleated outfits. The versatility of this trend knows no bounds.

It is safe to say that this is one trend that has stood the test of time and made it back on to the runway. Designer Reshma Kunhi says, “Earlier it was difficult to maintain the pleats. Therefore in 1988, designer Issey Miyake invented micro-pleating using modern technology and a special heat machine. Due to this technology the pleat doesn’t open up and stays intact.”


Micro-pleats can be used in any part of your outfit — from head to toe. Designer Shriya Joshi adds, “It’s one of the most versatile trends, it’s super flattering, elegant, adds texture to your look and can be worn for any and every occasion.” This is one other trend that screams elegance. Designer Prachita Devi stresses on the fact that simple is the way to go. She adds, “Keeping the pleats as a point of focus is important. Therefore, the rest of the outfit should be under toned. Also the pleats should be a in place where it can be easily seen.”

The pleats can be displayed as one element in the outfit. Reshma suggests, “For Indian wear one can wear a micro pleated saree with a fitted blouse or a micro-pleated top paired with a lightweight saree. If you don’t want pleats from head to toe,  a micro pleated scarf will do the job perfectly.” For a more casual occasion, a pleated skirt with a crop top and hair tied back is perfect, suggests Prachita.

Since its the festive season, don’t shy away from going bold with your accessories. Shriya shares, “Bold accessories, floral broaches or longline blazers are the key to making your look super glamorous.” The need to go all out can seem tempting with this trend, but one must resist the urge. “People who are heavy on the bottom can go for a hemline that has micro pleats and people who are heavier on the top should just use micro pleating details on sleeves, collars or duppatta or on a scarf,” she concludes.
