Even if you don’t consider yourself a follower of trends, we think you’ll love this skirt that will be everywhere in 2017. It’s been worn by the likes of her majesty Queen Beyoncé, so that should help convince you that this trend is good.

What is this magical item of clothing you ask? It’s accordion pleated skirts! And we seriously think Every. Single. Person (who enjoys wearing skirts!) should get into one. Not only do they look gorgeous on all shapes and sizes, they can be paired with tights and sweaters in the winter for warmth, and stripped down with sandals and a bodysuit for spring and summer fun.

Just look how happy and light Bey looks in her Gucci skirt, strolling through New York last fall.

Gucci is actually credited with bringing back this look in 2015, when the iconic fashion house showed its first collection under the direction of Alessandro Michele. Down the runways came metallic, midi-length, and patterned pleated skirts, redefining the classic schoolgirl look for the modern woman.

Now, a few seasons later, this style is a bonafide trend and we couldn’t be happier. Below, shop some affordable pleated skirts to chic up your 2017 wardrobe.
