Written by Elizabeth Mitchell

Pleats are way cooler than you think!

“Superstar” may be one of the most pointless, completely-lacking-any-sort-of-plot movies of all time, but Mary Katherine Gallagher is the shit, plain and simple. Aside from the fact that she’s destined for greatness, enjoys the odor of her own armpits, makes out with inanimate objects and is hooking up with the hottest dude in high school (Sky Corrigan…mmm, dreamy), girl’s got some killer moves. Plus, she totally knows how to rock out a heinous pleated plaid Catholic schoolgirl skirt and beat up bitches named after bottles of water—quite a feat if you ask us.

So in honor of Miss Mary Katherine and the highly anticipated return of pleats (yes, believe it or not they’re in again), we’ve rounded up some of the chicest accordion-like finds from around the net. So get inspired girls, and remember: you are your own rainbow.
