Leather skirt

I like this hush skirt but it's too expensive. I'm not sure exactly what makes it so expensive but anyway, it is too much to pay for a mini skirt. I like the idea of wearing with an oversized jumper and boots so pretty casual.

There's this one from the White company and there's 20% off but I'm only 5'3 so it's likely to be longer on me. I also prefer the straight mini shape of the hush one rather than to he slight A-line.

So, anyone seen anything similar for less? I would prefer leather but would have faux if it was the right style and didn't look shiny.

Don't get an A line, I had one from Debenhams it looked like an apron

Zara had some but obviously not leather. Still looked good

Yes! I bought one from WArehouse. It's a lovely fit and not dissimilar to the White Company one.

Spot on with the A line, I'm not going for the blacksmith look this season. I'm not sure I the white company one is or isn't really. I want it fitted rather than flappy.

This one from sainsburys ( 25% off atm) had lots of good reviews on here the other day.

taybert Thu 27-Oct-16 09:01:21

Yeah, I've seen that one, I'd just prefer one with a straighter fit. Warehouse and Zara have ones the right shape which are leather but they are gold or silver so not what I was going for really!

Oasis maybe still a bit flappy?
esprit might be a good one?

Ooo, Jigsaw
That might be it. They never have a discount do they?
I realise I am sitting talking to myself about leather skirts.

Jigsaw one is the best, like that more than the white company one

taybert Thu 27-Oct-16 10:23:56

Yeah, that's my favourite too. I've not bought anything from Jigsaw for ages. Anyone know how the sizing is?

I have this one jigsaw skirt it doesn't look quite a triangular in real life! I'm usually a 10/12 in general and have a 12 in this. The 10 was too small but the 12 is a bit big but ok - an 11 would have been perfect!

Pisssssedofff Thu 27-Oct-16 10:49:16

I find jigsaw big, I have a size 10 suit ... No way am I a 10 atm but it still fits

taybert Thu 27-Oct-16 10:59:46

I think they often look more a-line on the models as they tend to be so slim. My thighs would help fill the gap. I do like the idea of the more fitted one with a big jumper or long shirt. Cos I'm from the 80s.

I have this one - or at least an identical one from 2 years ago.

It's fake leather but quite "matte" ie not shiny and is a pretty good imitation. Good price, washes well and sits comfortably.

I've found mine to be a great investment, goes with a lot of things and have worn it for work, nights out and casual.

JamieVardysParty Thu 27-Oct-16 13:14:22

Also from ASOS and real leather but midi length.

There are also a couple of fake leather ones in the ASOS petite range.

How do you feel about suede? I just got this one from Mint Velevet, it's lovely, not too a-line, really liking it.

taybert Thu 27-Oct-16 22:45:26

There are some lovely ones but I've gone for the Jigsaw.

DrScholl Thu 27-Oct-16 22:50:30

i lik e the out of stock ASOS one best

Mrsmaudwatts Fri 28-Oct-16 07:42:49

I got the white company one, it's beautiful! I almost got the jigsaw one but I read a review about the raw edging making it very delicate so I went for the White co one because I never have any luck with things like that. It looks great though.

DrScholl Fri 28-Oct-16 09:58:27

I just won one on ebay by mistake

taybert Sun 30-Oct-16 08:38:11

So the jigsaw one arrived. It's nice, really soft leather but the reviews are right about the raw edging- so much so that the one they sent was already damaged. So I'm returning it for a refund and trying the white company one next before the 20% off ends.

Pisssssedofff Sun 30-Oct-16 10:42:26

The 20% off has been on for about 14 years, you can always find it !

taybert Sun 30-Oct-16 12:56:22

Haha, thinking about it, last time I bought something from there it had 20% off too so you're probably right. It was second on my list anyway.

The White Company one is really nice, good length, not actually A-liney.
