Pleats, Pleats, and More Pleats!

Hey everyone! Hope everyone is doing good out there!

We've been seeing many different styles in the market lately, one of which is the pleated look...especially in skirts.

Pleats can be a great look if utilized correctly...and we've tried to do that with a few of our items. We have 9 great items that will keep you modest, in style, and looking great with pleats!

For our Contemporary Customers, we have the 4 Button Pleated Skirt (front pleated with extra style from 4 faux buttons on the front...pictured left), the Knife Pleat Skirt (fully knife pleated with a comfie waistband...pictured right), and the Pleated Pocket Skirt (pleats on the pockets...fresh from Europe!). We also have 2 pleated Denim Skirts: Danielle's Pleated Skirt (one of our best sellers), and our Looped and Pleated Denim Skirt. Finally, we have our Pontie Jumper, a super cute dress with bottom pleating.

For Girls, we have 2 great skits, the 4 Button Pleated Skirt and the Knife Pleat Skirt, both exactly the same styles as the Contemporary Versions. Finally, we have the Pleated Pocket Dress, a super cute item.

I really love all of these pleated items, and am SURE you will get some great outfits out of these items!

Bodysuits in Fashion

Hey all! Sorry for the month off, but we've been working hard getting some great products ready for next season! Look forward to a few featured products this week, as well as my monthly fashion report coming soon!

At Be Precious, we've been making bodysuits since day one. We designed our body suits (per our friend Daphna's help) for comfort and style without loosing modesty. The bodysuit has been a staple of the modest dresser, since it's perfect to be worn underneath any short sleeve dress or shirt.

But are we ahead of the fashion trends? It seems so, as bodysuits are back in! We've seen many people wearing bodysuits with leggings and fur coats,...and that's it. We've also seen a similar outfit in a bodysuit, leggings, high boots, and a grandfather cardigan. Sported by celebrities like Madonna, Linsey Lohan, Kate Moss (pictured) and others, it seems that modest women have known about a fashion secret for some time.

So how do you make this outfit work for you? It depends on what you are comfortable with. Many light colored bodysuits are see-through, and most will fit very tight. If you feel comfortable with that, then take the outfit for as is. For people who want to cover up a little more, I would suggest a pencil skirt with the leggings, and any low cut/sleeveless/short sleeve to be worn on top of the body suit. This will hide the tightness of the bodysuit, giving you an extra layer for color combinations, and keeping you in style!
Here are the links to our 3/4 and long sleeve bodysuits!
Great job staying ahead of the fashion trends, and I'll be back soon!
