I just want a cord skirt...

(14 Posts)

I am trying to get myself out of wearing only jeans, and fancy the boots, thick tights nice cord skirt look that just about everyone at my work place is wearing.
I want above the knee but not mega short (I'm 44!).

Can anyone point me towards something suitable and not mega expensive? I'm struggling! Thankssmile

Don't forget, cord gives after a bit of wear so don't choose something loose to start with. <strokes cord covered legs>

I think you should get this skirt as it can also be worn as a cloak shock!

Some nice ones in the gap sale.

H&M have some here they aren't as short as they look on the picture

The Gap ones that went in the sale were nice. I bought one in ?plum heather but am considering returning it because the 10 isn't exactly snug as it is and Grace is right about how cord relaxes.

(Gap sizing is mad - in no other store would I be anywhere near an 8.)

I recently bought a teal green one from next. £22. Bargain

I am v nearly 42 and live in knee length cord skirts, thick tights and boots. Haven't bought any recently, but try Mistral, Ness, Boden, Weird Fish and Manta Ray (Debenhams ). All are online, would link but on phone with sleeping baby in other hand. Also Seasalt and Saltwater. And White Stuff.

Thankyou everybodysmile I am working my way through the suggestions and I will be skirted shortly smile

I bought this today in FatFace. Planning on wearing it with thick tights and brown ankle boots.

M&S had some above the knee pencil ones in berry shades (Indigo collection I think) Nice and stretchy and soft.
