The multi pleat round gele is ever a graceful style and if looking to perfect it then it's a must try.

The multi pleats gele birthed the Infinity pleats gele that trended for a bit (the infinity pleats gele is usually done with 6 yards of Ankara fabrics to make bold statement). The multi pleats gele has a way of bringing just enough glam to any trad look it's paired with. It's a style worth trying as it looks good on everyone.
