Denim Skirt?

(59 Posts)
CuriosityKilledTheCrap Sat 17-Nov-12 18:13:35

I have lost a huge amount of weight, and shopping is a joy now, but I don't know what is in fashion/style. I bought some boots, which look great with skinny jeans, and black tights but I feel a denim skirt would also be a good option. Couldn't see anything today.

Are they now 'out'?

ArthurandGeorge Sat 17-Nov-12 18:15:19

Mine was out at the park with me today smile.

Think they might be out but I like mine, last years Boden.

CuriosityKilledTheCrap Sat 17-Nov-12 18:18:20

Ooh Boden <smacks hand on forehead> Why didn't I think of that?

AnnoyedAtWork Sat 17-Nov-12 18:20:34

Hmm sorry but IMO they are out
And I'm not even 'trendy'
I would not wear one think they look frumpy

What about corduroy ?

GobblersSparklyExplodingKnob Sat 17-Nov-12 18:22:32

I love mine and wear it loads, last years Johnnie B.

OK well there's nowt on the Boden site. Let me upload a photo of the boots (from tk maxx so no links); and let you advise.

I have just bought a nice one in Joules,

I have a denim mini from Gap - looks great with tights, boots and a chunky jumper.

GobblersSparklyExplodingKnob Sat 17-Nov-12 18:31:16

What size are you? This is mine on e-bay (not really being modelled to it's best advantage)

H&M cord (I have this too, in orange).

CuriosityKilledTheCrap Sat 17-Nov-12 18:33:27

Right - I have uploaded some rubbish pics.

Please be nice about them - it's taken me 2 years and a marital breakup to go out and spend money on myself again.

I think they are a bit frumpy but I don't care i love mine. It came from gap but some time ago.

CuriosityKilledTheCrap Sat 17-Nov-12 18:35:50

Thanks Gobbers - will have a nose.

I'm size 12 now.

ArthurandGeorge Sat 17-Nov-12 18:35:51

Love the colours of the H&M one.

Beaverfeaver Sat 17-Nov-12 18:36:42

I just bought a mini denim skirt and love to wear it with burgundy tights and nice boots

BikeRunSki Sat 17-Nov-12 18:38:27

I have a knee length A line one I got about 6 weeks ago from Weird Fish. I believe it to be the frumpiest skirt in frumpsville because it took me ages to find a knee length one. But I love it, wear it all the time.

CuriosityKilledTheCrap Sat 17-Nov-12 18:38:57

Where from Beaver?

yani Sat 17-Nov-12 18:39:11

I've got one, that comes just above my knees.
I wear it with chunky cardi's, a scarf, coloured tights and either black or brown boots.
I'm not in the cool and trendy crowd, but it's a look I enjoy. smile

CuriosityKilledTheCrap Sat 17-Nov-12 18:40:12

is it this one? Bike?

I don't know if I could carry off an A-line.

CuriosityKilledTheCrap Sat 17-Nov-12 18:41:35

Can anyone see my boots on my photos?

bigbadbarry Sat 17-Nov-12 18:42:08

I can see your boots. I like smile (But see above re frumpiness)

CuriosityKilledTheCrap Sat 17-Nov-12 18:43:20

I do like your skirt Gobbers... You may see a bid on that...

Beaverfeaver Sat 17-Nov-12 18:45:27

Curiosity - mine is from next.

Surprisingly very cool and funky. It's a dark denim, and perfect length. Always get nice compliments when wearing it

I am size 12 an 5ft4 btw

Meggles76 Sat 17-Nov-12 18:46:48

I don't think they are out, just more about how you style it. Try with navy or burgundy opaques?? A chunky knit?? Funky boots??

Floggingmolly Sat 17-Nov-12 18:47:02

Denim skirts are not frumpy.

Waspie Sat 17-Nov-12 18:48:00

I've just ordered this one in a 12L: Boden Denim Mini I'm hoping it will be just above the knee on me (I'm 5'10") but I guess we'll see.
