Crown Princess Mary Proves My Point…

….and that was, yes, pleats are back.

Serious Take: Mary continues to champion women and diversity. She is the patron of the Women’s Board, which awards diversity at top levels of the Danish business world.

Sartorial Take: Yeah, pleats, one of the defining characteristics of my misspent sartorial youth. That said, Mary wears them well. It helps to be a hipless wonder, I suppose, but it also helps that she has chosen a color that works surprisingly well for her. A bit of shimmer does not go astray when you are wearing a style that harkens back to twinsets and school girls.
