My sister has been on the hunt for an accordion, or pleated skirt, forever. Finally she got a BCBG one for Christmas. While I was wrapping it I started to really fall in love with the look. Although it can look dated if you put a little effort into styling the skirt with modern accessories this vintage looking skirt can work wonderfully in the 21st century. Belting the skirt is one way to make it unique. I would add a gold or leopard belt over a black accordion skirt as well as tights and ankle boots, if you are wearing the look for winer. For summer, which I know feels a long way off, a lighter color skirt like the one pictured would really make you stand out.
