The Smart Girl’s Guide To Caring For Your Pleated Skirts

At a recent fashion event, a PR person was lamenting to me about how one time, an accordion pleated skirt that was borrowed came back to her in a state of ruin. The reason?

This got me thinking about how pleated skirts are such a huge trend in fashion, but so few women truly know how to wash and iron their skirts. Here are some simple steps that you can take to ensure that your skirts stay true to their original designs, so you can continue to wear them even after throwing them into the laundry basket.
