This week’s fashion dictionary deals with a vintage lover’s staple – accordion-pleated skirts!
Sometimes called a sunburst-pleated skirt, accordion pleated skirts are made from a full circle of fabric, featuring pressed-in pleats that are wide at the bottom and taper in at the waist, creating a fun, full-bodied flair. First created for “skirt dancing” in the 1880s, any thrift store with a respectable collection will prove that the style has been around (in one way or another) ever since.
Our Got That Swing Skirt will add a retro-perfect touch to simple blouses, tees, or sweaters!
