Accordion Pleats are popping all over, from runways to street.. This trend was first seen on the Spring 2012 runways and is also making a comeback for the Fall. Accordion pleats are visible in garments- as dresses, skirts, tops, tunics, pants, jumpsuits.
They can be worn in casual looks as skirts or pants with tees, as work wear to office, for semi formal outings or very formal occasions as gowns or drapes.
There's a wide variety available, here are some garments that are made in my work unit (did I forget to mention, I have a work unit) and some from the current trends, available at the stores and runway.
This polka dotted maxi dress can be worn to a beach or casually during the day, The jumpsuit in Lapis Blue optic polkas again is in Chiffon with very fine pleating and can be worn anywhere from formal to semi formal to casual, And the neon pink layered maxi dress that you have seen in the last post on me.
