Skirting the issue…

Skirting the issue…

When it comes to skirts I find I am very very fussy. I have particularly chunky thighs that I like to keep undercover for the majority of time. I have two flat moles on one leg that I like to use as a skirt length marker. I know it sounds pretty sad but it helps me out…Anyway I have been looking for a simple skirt that can be worn with pretty much anything. I want it to be easy and quick to throw on. It has to work with and without tights. I want an elasticated waist that I can tuck things in to. Maybe some pockets…Now I know I’m being pretty specific but that is what I want and need really. A skirt that will work dressed up or down and will fit in with the rest of my wardrobe…

I have selected a few possibilities…

This one is from ASOS, £7 in the sale…It has the elasticated waist and the pockets and I do like the colour. In fact I think it’s a brilliant price in the sale and would possibly buy it for that reason alone.

This is a Topshop Ruched Waist Skirt, £18. I love the waistband detailing here and it does look better quality then the ASOS cheapy…

The third is from Warehouse, £22. I like the sailor stripes. Although I want a skirt that will go with everything and I think the stripes might hold me back…Finally a little Navy Hitch number from Dorothy Perkins, £28. It’s the most expensive out of the lot but I have fallen a little bit in love with this skirt. I think it’s because the hitching of the material seems haphazard and a little rough, almost like it’s about to unravel…
I think if I save my money I could aim for the Dotty P one. Realistically though I’m heading towards ASOS. Who can complain at £7….

    Oh, I love that Asos one. I’m quite insecure about my legs, so I get frustrated when most of the skirts I try on are mini mini mini!

    Oh, there are cute! I love that DP one:) I would say the ASOS one, if it was a different colour;;)

    i actually really like the asos one, not even just cuz its on sale, i just love the simplicity of it. especially since you want a skit that could go with everything!

    I love the DP skirt. It definitely has a roughed up elegance feel to it. American Apparel has some great classic skirts that exactly fit the description you made. I have 2 and I wear them with everything.

    I vote for the DP one! The others are quite nice too, but this one is a statement making, jealous fit inducing skirt! I’d get it myself, but the conversion rates- ouch!

    all of these are great but I especially am drooling over the last one and that ruched waist skirt with the adorable pockets!

    Wow I love the last one! And I like the brightness of the first one! Haha it’d be awesome if you had a sewing machine, sometimes it’s easiest to make skirts yourself so you can choose the length you want it at =)
