Gabrielle Union Wore the $50 Skirt That Always Gets Compliments
Lars Niki

There’s one skirt that fashion girls always rave over, and Gabrielle Union found a super affordable version. The closet staple is a long, flowy shape accented with pleats. I have a similar one from Zara, and every time I wear it, compliments from strangers are non-stop. Other editors at InStyle also wear their pleated skirts to the office, and together we’re constantly gushing over the accordion silhouettes.

On Wednesday, Union uploaded a photo to Instagram showing how she styled her New York and Company skirt ($70 $49;, which features metallic fabric, sharp pleats, and a slit. The actress and founder of Flawless by Gabrielle Union kept the rustic color scheme going with high-heel sandals, but she added a casual element by pairing a cropped denim shirt with the look.

Concrete Catwalk NYC ... Love this @nyandcompany skirt!

That’s what we love the most about a pretty skirt with pleats. You could literally pair them with anything. From a fancy blouse to a plain T-shirt, there are so many outfit combinations. And they’re also perfect for elevating your favorite pair of sneakers.
