I bought a black mini pleather from topshop & a greeny turquoise one from next a few weeks ago. They look nice & fit well but I haven't worn them as don't know what to wear with them. I am 41 mum of 2 littlies so not sure they're the sort of thing I'd find comfortable to wear during your average day but I thought maybe for nights out, not that I have many😂!

I am so out of touch but if I'm not going to wear them I've got 3 days
to return.

Any suggestions please from those of you with more than a clue than me?!!

Black opaques and a nice wool oversized jumper with ankle boots?

Black opaques tan knee high boots long cardigan/slouchy jumper

Thanks i like the idea of the jumper but thought if too oversized it might appear longer than the skirt! I don't really have a jumper like this so will have a look in sales.

Black tights and a black skinny jumper here.

I'd be inclined to return the turquoise one. It's not going to be very versatile. Keep the black one.

Thanks burnished I think you're right, I can't really justify keeping both!

Dress down rather than up. So slouchy jumper or t shirt, low heeled or flat boots or trainers.

I have a black one which I wear loads - generally with a crew neck jumper, opaques and flat Chelsea boots. Mine is a-line, so I need something neat on top rather than over-sized, otherwise I would look like a triangle. My favourite outfit with it is a plain grey jumper and grey marl tights, and a big acrylic necklace. A girl in my hairdresser the other day had one on with a black blouse with little white stars on it, tucked in, opaques and low heeled ankle boots which I thought looked really good. I think the trick is to dress it down rather than go fancy.

Oh, I just re-read your OP, I wear mine day to day, not for nights out - I've actually worn it to work quite a bit.

Judy, mine is also more Aline and I'm quite short so I was a bit worried a big jumper would swamp me and the skirt! I like the sound of the crew neck jumper & i have some grey ankle boots.

i wear mines for nights out dressed up with a nice lipsy lace blouse or chiffon top, all tucked into waist band and stillettos. If i wear a jumper with them i look shapeless.

I have a black leather one - as PPs have said, dress down rather than up. Always opaques, usually an oversized jumper, trainers or flat boots. I wore it on Xmas day in fact with an oversized silk shirt, long green cardigan and black trainers.

I wear to work with opaque tights and flat Chelsea boots and either a collared cotton shirt with a jumper over the top or silk shirt. I think I have the same skirt as you, OP; it's a black mini from Topshop. Also have a black A line from H&M.

I have similar - both a green and black one. Wear as day wear with opaques and ankle boots; on top a fitted jumper.

I wear a polo neck, tights and ankle boots or an oversized jumper, or going out top.

I'm 40 and have a black one from Next. I've worn it more than I thought I would.
Work: with thick opaque tights, loafers, shirt tucked in and sometimes a skinny cashmere jumper.
Nights out: opaque tights, heels, bottle green lace long sleeve top tucked in or black band t tucked.
