Metallic midi skirts have been waking the magpie in seemingly every street style photographer for the past couple of seasons, and it's easy to see why. These skirts, often featuring pleats, create just enough flash while maintaining a daytime-friendly level of modesty, thanks to their longer hemline and full shape.
As is the case with most current trends, it was Gucci's iterations that first won the hearts of the fashion crowd, with the brand's shiny gold and green options quickly selling out, prompting it to create more metallic midi skirts. And in case you're thinking that they're a hard trend to pull off, think again. These surprisingly versatile skirts will get more wear than you ever imagined.
