Angelina Jolie Is Making the Case for Pleats as Summer 2020’s Must-Wear Trend

Second time’s a charm.

  • Angelina Jolie was photographed in Los Angeles wearing a white pleated dress by The Row and carrying a bag by Dior.
  • This marks the second time this week that the Academy Award winner has worn a pleated ensemble.

Angelina Jolie has a uniform. It’s composed of some sort of fitted dress or sleek separates with unfussy accessories—and she’s stuck to it for years. For summer 2020, however, the 45-year-old Academy Award–winning actress has added a flourish into the mix: pleats.

Earlier this week, the mother of six was spotted shopping for art supplies with her son Knox Jolie-Pitt, wearing a navy pleated dress by Gabriela Hearst. Shortly thereafter in sunny Los Angeles, she donned another pleated ensemble, this time in white and by The Row. Indeed, the fashion label founded by Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen is seemingly a favorite of Jolie’s—and so, too, is this particular number. Called Martina, the frock, along with the same oversized belt here and what looks like the very same Celine bag she donned earlier this week with the navy dress, was worn by Jolie last year while she was in France.

In fact, had it not been for the Dior 30 Montaigne bag that she had over shoulder and the slides she slipped into this time around, the looks would have been identical. It just goes to show that if an outfit is this good, it warrants repetition. All you need to do is change your accessories and most viewers will be none the wiser.
