I don't get it confused

Awkward and brown - what more could you want lol. I don't think I own any brown clothes - it's a furniture colour!

Kenworthington Tue 27-Sep-16 20:45:33

Hmm dunno. She looked nice in it I thought!

It's not so much the colour, it's that the newest 'trend' is referred to as awkward length Just doesn't make it sound very appealing to me.

there is lots of awkward stuff apparently

SesameSparkle Tue 27-Sep-16 21:44:24

Awkward would probably be ankle length on me... grin

Oh god they are awkward aren't they? They look hideous.

chocdonutyy Tue 27-Sep-16 21:57:05

I like awkward length, they would fit without dragging on the ground 😂

Kenworthington Tue 27-Sep-16 22:00:48

I like awkward. It's just midi now that they've decided midi is bloody knee length

MargoReadbetter Tue 27-Sep-16 22:12:07

Looks ok for skirts but unflattering for trousers.

poppym12 Tue 27-Sep-16 22:38:52

It probably wouldn't be a bad length on me but it just seems like a daft name for it.

I have one a bit like the culottes jumpsuit, 1st item, second row in that Asos search. I like it but DH said "that's an odd length are you sure it's right?" when I first wore it!

I've got some denim culottes in that length. They are super comfortable & I've received lots of compliments. I can't wear flares as I walk around too much & they get dirty or it rains but these give me a different look I can wear with flats or heels.

I think they screwed up on the patterns and decided to make it a thing.

What's wrong with midi length as a word? Mini is somewhere between knee and vulva, knee-length is knee obviously, midi between knee and ankle AS IN THAT DRESS, ankle at -shocker - ankle and maxi sweeps the floor. Granted that the names referring to body standards fail since bodies aren't standard but awkward length??? All knee length skirts are awkward for me because they never are.

Words fail.

banivani Wed 28-Sep-16 09:29:43

But why is that awkward length??!! That's just awkward garment.

poppym12 Wed 28-Sep-16 09:32:19

shock huldra.

Well that awkward length is a totally different length to the other awkward lengths so what is the definition of awkward length and how could it be the correct awkward length on everyone?
