Midi

As the biggest skirt trend of the past few years, the pleated midi is a great closet chameleon — especially if you spring for a metallic version. These skirts can be dressed down with a sweatshirt and sneakers and dressed to the nines with strappy sandals and a silky camisole tucked in. Voila, your go-to fall wardrobe update.
