When I want simple but unique ready-to-wear, Pleats Please by Issey Miyaki is what I might turn to for inspirations. Besides, the price point is quite reasonable. Years ago a friend introduced me to the brand and I liked these simplistic designs ever since. Besides, these pieces are great for traveling since no ironing is required by me. Pair a simple pleat top with jeans or pants, a gal is stylish and together.
A friend who happened to be a huge fan told me one year her housekeeper ironed pleats out of her top. She didn't know it was supposed to be like that and put herself to work for 2 to 3 hours ironing until everything was smoothed out. Needless to say, gal pal almost fainted. Bright colorful scarf is one of my favorite accessories.
How cute to have a little pleat bag to add interest to an outfit.
Last, but perhaps my favorite piece is the Madam T wrap. Not only is this piece a wrap, it can transform into so many other styles.
