Accordion pleats, please! Why we adore this new style staple
Makeover your wardrobe with a chic and cute retro style: accordion pleats! This trend may seem tricky to pull off without looking like a schoolgirl or your granny, but surprisingly, it’s easier than ya think!
Say ‘buh-bye’ to that restricted pencil skirt feeling. With pleats, you can move! A flippy skirt and plain white tee are perfect for casual school days. Cute platforms make it ’70s-cool.

Our fave thing about pleats? They glide over your curves without adding tons of volume. A sweet two-piece dress draws attention where you want it.
