Pleats appeared on the AW 2011 catwalks with mini cheerleader skirts making a huge impact on the highstreet. And this season they are here to stay.

Spotted on all the major catwalks including Dior, House of Holland and Rodarte this look has been given a summer make over thanks to a range of pastel pinks and ethereal creams.

Hemlines have also been made longer to reflect the relaxed feel of the 70s, while fabrics are lighter and more floaty.

Team up maxi skirts with simple vests or go for a loose chiffon vest for a smarter occasion.

See all the designer inspiration in the gallery below.
