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!
Do you have a Spring-focused term you’d like featured in the next Style Glossary blog post? Let me know!

I love and adore anything pleated. I especially love and adore that skirt.
I also find that the shape of the shirt is perfect for curvy ladies. It compliments our shape so nicely. ^__^
Hurm.. I’m a novice to the fashion stuff, so I’ve got a list of terms. I don’t know if these phrases are Spring-focused, but they are thrown around a bit.
Could you clarify what a pencil skirt is? And a twofer dress?
