I need to buy a couple of everyday skirts and dresses. Something I can wear with tights and boots when its cold and sandals in the summer.
I can't find anything anywhere...
Can anyone help?

Something like this?

Its nice, but I think I want more one colour. So I can vary with accessories instead.

Are you sure you can't find anything anywhere? <boggles> What do you like?

sexypantsformum Thu 27-Feb-14 16:08:25

Yes bee I'm sure.
I want a plain skirt. Not arse skimming short. No mad colours, Grey's, blacks, blues, cream etc. Not with a print or frills.
Just a couple of nice skirts and dresses.

Do you like any of the links above? What about a trip to Whistles?

I like the pleated one. But pale pinks scare me! 3 boys have done that too me!!!

blue box pleat?

Beeyump Thu 27-Feb-14 16:17:36

It's available in 'deep plum' and navy! I love pleated skirts, and I'm sure you'd look amazing in that one, pale pink or not smile

I'm quite wide hipped, big thighs... do pleats hide or accentuate?

I've found they can do either and I've never been able to work out why. It's a case of trying on.

That's fair enough! The joys of being a woman.

I bought a brilliant stretchy material light grey plain pencil skirt - just below the knee - from John Lewis - it's in their KIN range but can only see the black one online. £49
