sorry im so rubbish at links.
I got bought this skirt as a present over winter from my parents. I love it but i never wear it. I just dont know what to wear with it.
Ive got a date in the week and id love to wear it but dont want to do the black tights routine really.
All i can think of to put with it is a black tshirt and black cardigan. Do you have any better ideas?
im 5ft 7, 14 and very curvy.

you did it..! huzzah

How long is the skirt?

It's just above the knee smile

If it was winter I'd say a black skinny rib top, black opaques and killer heels or boots.

Where are you going on the date and is it day or evening?

What shoes do you have?

It's a early evening dinner date. We're more in a relationship now if that helps?
I've got flat chocolate boots.

Beige and tan boots. Pumps of all colours.

I wouldn't be confident bare legged in that unless I had a great tan.

I'd go for something else personally.

Is it too hot for tights? envy It's winter where I am.

Just trusty black tights? My legs are awful anyway grin

SavoyCabbage Sun 19-May-13 12:52:51

I would wear brown tights with the boots then.
