10 Accordion Pleat Skirts To Add To Your Wardrobe NOW!

Love all things vintage? Then I’m sure an accordion pleat skirt is something you’ll instantly have a crush on. As the name suggests, accordion pleats are nothing but narrow folds on a garment, and such skirts are usually made out of light-weight fabrics. This feminine-textured bottom was quite the game-changer for skirts last year, given that it made it to the runway shows of most designers. Even for the Spring Summer 2016 season, fashion houses like Gucci, Carolina Herrera, Adam Lippes and Stella McCartney incorporated breezy accordion pleats in their collections. I like the schoolgirl vibe an accordion pleat skirt gives off; it’s super cute. But the one reason that makes these pretty pleats a must-have in your wardrobe is its versatility: when styled right, it can not just work as a sophisticated option for the workplace but is also a relaxed ensemble for casual hours. For party regulars, a metallic option teamed with a chic crop top can be an offbeat yet chic ensemble.

Looking to take a cue from some of our favourite style stars? Try an accordion pleat skirt like Neha Dhupia. Team it with a black cami and a leather biker jacket, and top it off with heeled moccasins. Super chic, isn’t it?


  You could even opt for a head-to-toe monotone look. Take inspiration from Deepika Padukone who has given the accordion pleat skirt a modern twist in her look below. She’s teamed it with a sweater dress and ankle-strap heels. As far as I’m concerned, an oversized jumper + skirt look is super sassy. I like that she’s kept the colour palette neutral throughout.
