Thanks to Gucci the pleated midi-skirt is THE skirt shape of autumn/winter 15. A flimsy pleated skirt doesn’t exactly scream autumn/winter, but when styled with tights, knitwear and knee length boots, you’ve got yourself the perfect winter outfit. There are some gorgeous metallic Gucci “lookalikes” on the high street right now, but have look in the vintage stores too. I picked myself up two beautiful print ones from a vintage fair last weekend, and with them appearing again in Gucci’s resort and spring/summer 16 collections, it looks like they were a good investment to make.
