What makes the Carrie/Erica skirt so successful is that it taps into a few trends at once :
1 - Pleats
2 - The Ballerina look (as started by the film 'Black swan')
3 - The two shades : Taupe and hot pink
4 - The mid length
The skirt comes in two colors and also two lengths. You can go mid length (below the knee) and above the knee as well. It's a fantastic way of doubling your wardrobe - if you are lucky enough to actually get one........
