It's a black midi fit and flare work skirt. I want new boots with heels to go with it. I love the seventies look of midi skirt and long boots but don't think I want black on black.

I personally would go black, as I don't like brown with black. But grey or dark red might be ok, depending on what else you're going to wear with it.

I agree with Hellmouth, I really think black would look best but failing that a dark grey maybe in suede or leather.

I agree brown doesn't work with black. I was wondering about a proper colour - seen some aubergine boots out there this year... Dark red sounds lovely.

Do you also have to do the jaunty walk that the model is doing in the pic as well?!

Fwiw - new look have a really similar skirt to this which is sort of mesh over an underskirt. Really pretty and about half price

That New Look skirt is not at all similar, apart from being black of course.

They're both midi a-line black skirts. Obviously the pattern / mesh bit is different

I quite like it if on a thread I'm asking about something specific people link to other things I might like

If it's no helpful then no harm done, I just thought it might be

No harm done at all. I like that New Look skirt, Queen. Might have to take a look at it. And LOL at the walk the model does. Makes the skirt look stupid, when really I think it's a very classic 70s look.

The aubergine boots sound idea.

New look have some lovely navy crushed velvet ankle boots. Wearing block heeled ankle boots with everything and leaving a gap around the ankle seems to be the current "thing".

Ooh I love the sound of crushed velvet ankle boots. Thanks for the tip, Fairy.
Just had a quick look at them. They're brilliant but not sure I'd wear the with a black skirt. Might have to get them anyway.

Buster, I think so too. Just got to find the right ones.
