One of this season's most playful and surprisingly wearable trends is the rainbow skirt. It may sound tough to pull off—can you really wear ROYGBIV without looking insane? But trust me it's an easy and cute way to freshen up your fall wardrobe. Think of a brightly striped skirt as a one-and-done statement piece.

Any way you wear it, it adds a fun jolt of color and is as easy to throw on as your basic black skirt.
