Never wear skirts. Bought this one in 20% off moment.
I like it but what will it go with???!
Intended it for every day winter and evening wear.
Shall I just take back?!

Oops here's the link

Im not seeing it! I cant really comment. It only gives the description confused

Couldn't see it through the link but looked it up on the M & S website. I take it you didn't buy it after seeing the promo video?

Looks nice enough to me. Opaque tights and under knee or ankle boots would look okay. Probably a waist length jumper, cardi or top.

I can't see it either - but if you can't think what it will go with and are already dithering, just take it back. Otherwise it will be one of those things you have lurking in the back of your cupboard and every time you see it you'll feel guilty you bought it (that might just be me)

Hmm not sure why that didn't work. It's a short black velvet one. Maybe I'll stick to jeans!

Why would you take that back? Looks nice to me, despite being from the dreaded m&s!
Practical, seems like a nice cut, can dress up with heel, or down with flats or chunky heel ankle boots. I like it. As an "introduction" to skirt wearing it looks like a good 'un.

Is this it?

milkwasabadchoice Thu 27-Nov-14 21:14:11

That's what I saw Dex

TheHappinessTrap Thu 27-Nov-14 21:16:48

I could see it. It's a cute casual skirt!

Greengardenpixie Thu 27-Nov-14 21:22:32

mmm...not great if you have any sort of tummy!

MaryWestmacott Thu 27-Nov-14 21:30:47

I like it! Very easy to wear - with black or grey tights, then just jumpers or long sleeved tops. Basically, anything you'd wear with black jeans, just not anything that's too long, you want tops that will stop around where the top does on the website.

I have got this skirt myself clutterqueen. I love it. Its very comfy. I wear it with shirts and jumpers with opaque tights, boots and ankle boots. You will love it

EdithDickie Thu 27-Nov-14 22:54:11

I really like it smile

SinglePringle Thu 27-Nov-14 22:59:31

That skirt is going to go all baggy on the arse. It's not a flattering cut at all - the back seam and pockets are awful.

I'd take it back - there's way better out there. I'll have a hunt...

Not keen, looks cheap and will be difficult to wear with those pleats!
