Pleats Please: Romantic Accordion Pleats for Fall 2012

The soft, romantic accordion pleats that first made an appearance on the Spring 2012 runways are making a return appearance for Fall. This time, however, pleats took on a more prominent role, sometimes taking over the entire design of a look like those seen at BCBG and Dior. Both flirtatious and sophisticated, these swingy skirts and dresses look chic paired with everything from casual tees to tough booties.
