I think it's real bad, but I'm prepared to be corrected.

I think it's gorgeous!

That shirt doesn't look right with that skirt. I like them separately.

Frumpy - reminds me of schoolteachers in the 1970s!

Oh no, I love the skirt. Mind you, it's in the most unflattering cut known to woman, the most unflattering fabric, and the most unflattering length. OK if you're a 12 yr old model. Or a very skinny old lady.

But I really like it with that shirt too - good styling.

I do like the skirt.

The shoulder bit on the top is weird though.

Hate the blouse, which isn't helped by what looks like an ill fitting strapless bra underneath definitely fitted by M&S but love the skirt.

BettyBi0 Tue 15-Mar-16 11:59:50

The model looks less than impressed too!

I love the skirt but styled differently. The shirt looks like half a fancy dress cowgirl costume

Reminds me of what my mum used to wear many moons ago - and therefore wouldn't put that combo together. Probably fine with different top / bottom though.

Ooo I wore a pink version of that blouse to my first disco (Brownies, age 8) in 1983. It was, with hindsight, not a great look. The skirt is ok though although probably only for slender ladies with no hips. I wore a pink ra-ra skirt in '83, I still miss it.

I keep looking at that skirt in store (it's the quickest route to my office), and thinking, Ooooh, I quite like that!

ApocalypseSlough Tue 15-Mar-16 12:05:59

Love the skirt. It'd only look good with that blouse on a skinny Minnie though.

Oh my - maybe I am well behind the times then, as I hate the skirt. The material is nice, but the whole mid-length thing and the strange bagginess of it just doesn't do it for me.

I'm sure I had a blouse like that too - many moons ago. It's not really a look I want to go back to now that I'm proper middle-aged!

Love the skirt but not keen on the top smile

Saw the skirt in store recently and actually laughed. It's hideous, scratchy and in revolting shades of green and gold. It's an unpleasant shape too. I don't understand how it actually get to the shop floor stage.

Meh...doesn't hurt my eyes but i wouldn't wear any of it personally.

specialsubject Tue 15-Mar-16 16:59:14

the model doesn't look very impressed - for good reason.

PicnicPie Tue 15-Mar-16 17:04:25

I think the skirt is super cute. Definitely not with that blouse though.

I actually like the skirt. The blouse could be okay in a different colour, but it doesn't go with the skirt.

NeedToMoveHouse Tue 15-Mar-16 17:14:43

What an odd mix. Is that a turquoise belt I spy? To go with the black and gold skirt and white cowboy shirt hmm

cressetmama Tue 15-Mar-16 17:16:02

Quite like the skirt shape and the idea of a metallic skirt (looking for something new for niece's summer wedding) is good. Not styled like that though!

squoosh Tue 15-Mar-16 17:16:54

I love the skirt's material but the midi length looks frumpsville on most people. So it's a 'no' from me.

As for the shirt I'd like it if the ruffled bit was on the front alone rather than creeping over to encompass the sleeves too.

The two look weird together though.
