Always in Accord
I love knife pleats and fortuny pleats, but accordion pleats are by far my favorite of the pleat varietals. And they’re going to be quite ubiquitous come spring 2012, especially in skirts. But as far as I’m concerned, they never really go out of style. Below we found a lovely selection of vintage and not-so-vintage accordion pleated pretties.
