What is the one piece every girl needs in her wardrobe come Fall? A patent-leather skirt—and the glossier, the better! A high-shine skirt surely makes a dramatic statement.
Patent leather can often read as more '80s-era unrefined than modern and polished, so the trick is to balance the high-shine skirt with elevated pieces, meaning basics or classic cuts to balance it out. Try a sweater or a classy blouse and let your skirt do the talking. I completed my ensemble with another piece you'll see tons of this season, velvet heeled ankle boots, for a perfect outfit for fall.
