The Fall Skirt We Predict Every Cool Girl Will Own

No closet is complete without the presence of a statement piece. Whether it’s a bright pink coat, a pair of culottes, or the subject of today’s slideshow—a car wash skirt—owning something that you can throw on and feel instantaneously fantastic in is key. And because we’ve noticed an influx of bold skirts over the last few seasons, including fringe iterations, fluted hems, and a-line minis, we wanted to know what the next it skirt will be, and we found it. From Christian Dior to Proenza Schouler, countless designers showed the car wash skirt on their F/W 15 runways, which is essentially a skirt with separated pleats (get it? Car wash?). Scroll down for a look at why we predict this will be the skirt of the season, and shop our picks at the end!
