About to buy myself some new knee high boots
Liking these

and fancy wearing skirts and boots.
Anyone seen any nice winter skirts out there? Im not normally a skirt kinda gal so this is kinda out of my comfort zone. Thinking a cord and a denim skirt.

Its mostly dresses at the moment. I love skirts but am yet to find a nice one this season (or last to be fair!)

Not many winter skirts out there at the moment, I've been looking too sad

Fatface have a very nice cord skirt (knee length with buttons down the front). Think it comes in blue and red. Also they have a denim skirt, which is similar.

Try gap for skirts

I've hunted high and low for my perfect denim skirt this autumn and found it at Weird Fish. Try Ness, Mistral and Boden too for cord skirts.

Dare I say it but m and s Indigo have a really nice lighter blue cord skirt!

Thanks for the suggestions. smile

Just returned from Next with my brown boots and a lovely knee length Black cord skirt.
Still after a Denim one too so will have a look at the places suggested.

This is where you can get knee length denim skirts this season. Believe me, I have hunted to the point of obsession:

Boden - £45 - zip to short to get on without a lot of wriggling.
Tresspass - £11 in clearance - even XL tooa small and I'm only a 14!
Crew Clothing - £60 - too short
Fat face - don't want buttons down front
Debenhams -£35, only on line - fake pockets! I need real pockets!
Weird Fish - perfect, £40. Right length, colour, stretchiness, fit, price. Have had it 4 days and been wearing it for 3 of them!

You really have hunted for your perfect skirt, Bike. You've inspired me to take a look at Weird Fish!

Floridagirl Sat 06-Oct-12 18:29:44

You made the Wierd Fish denim skirt sound like my holy grail there Bike so much so that I just went and bought it!
And for anyone else that likes the sound of it, it appears to be reduced until Sunday, was only £29....

Stevie77 Sat 06-Oct-12 20:06:59

karmabeliever that blue one is exactly what I've been looking for! (Although I'm now thinking maybe the tan would look nicer with the tweed jacket I'm coveting)

IwishIwasmoreorganised Sat 06-Oct-12 20:11:56

What are you,wearing with your holy grail of skirts bike?

I'm like op - I'd like to wear skirts more often but they're not quite in my comfort zone!

BikeRunSki Sat 06-Oct-12 20:12:04

Bugger! Ah well £11 is a small price to pay for 4 extra days of skirt perfection.

fedupofnamechanging Sun 07-Oct-12 07:59:53

You could buy another one Bike, while it's in the sale - save you having to look again, when you've worn the first one to death!

Stevie, glad you have found what you wanted. I rather like the berry one, but think I will wait until there is a sale. I just bought the Ingrid twist dress for £20 instead of £45 and I know it will bug me if i pay full price for the skirt, then find it on sale in a few weeks!

Cana you tell me how the Wierdfish sizing is? Does it come up big/small, similar to White Stuff?

MorrisZapp Mon 08-Oct-12 11:30:32

My name is MorrisZapp and I am addicted to purchasing denim skirts.

I mostly get mine on eBay. I've had some really good unbranded ones over the years, plus various Fat Face etc.

I notice FF sizing seems to have changed lately. It was always v generous, now not so much. Either that or I'm in Malteser binge denial.

MorrisZapp Mon 08-Oct-12 11:31:24

Linky to Weird Fish skirt, pretty please?

MorrisZapp Mon 08-Oct-12 11:35:48

Bike and Florida... don't go to Weird Fish today. All skirts half price!!

Dollydowser Mon 08-Oct-12 11:40:45
MorrisZapp Mon 08-Oct-12 11:44:45

Thanks dolly! Half price, my ordering finger is itching smile

FlatscreenGoat Mon 08-Oct-12 11:53:20

Is that weird fish skirt really A-line?? I fancied a more fitted one I think

Lozislovely Mon 08-Oct-12 12:46:01

Just ordered the denim and the velvet skirt! Thanks Dolly grin

Dollydowser Mon 08-Oct-12 16:42:33

You're welcome. I didn't order the denim, it has a front zip-no good fot me. Anyone seen a knee length denim with side zip, maybe slightly less A line than the Wierdfish one? Or any winter skirts without a front zip. Like Stevie says, not many winter skirts about.
