Our Favorite Pleated Midi Skirts for Under $100

Spring and summer saw the proliferation of a new skirt length: the Goldilocks-approved not-too-short, not-too-long midi length. And for fall, it looks like the silhouette is here to stay. But instead of flowing fabrics and floral prints, the cooler season calls for a few tweaks on what’s become a skirt staple. Swap out your light-as-air silks and cottons for something a little more substantial, like the faux-leathers and wools that we’ve chosen here.

And instead of pairing them with strappy tanks and your summer platforms, try wearing these midi skirts with cropped sweaters, boyfriend blazer and as always, a white button-up shirt for that perfect combination of polish and sex appeal.

If you’re worried about the pleats, don’t, because they give these longer skirts some much-needed movement and can flatter a wide range of bodies. Just look for something that moves when you do and flows right from the widest part of your body — the pleats will swing, swish and send you into the season looking chic.
