I have one, I don't wear it often but I really like it. It's a black and silver miniskirt and I wear it with black opaques, ankle boots or trainers (Converse or Stan Smiths) and usually a cashmere jumper on the top half or a simple black top. I'm really not a cutting edge trendy dresser though so that may be entirely the wrong way to style it but I like it
I have two - one very short black and gold one, from Topshop, and another just below the knee, gold and silver, from H&M. I wear them with a very plain black top - polo neck jumper, or crew neck jumper - black opaques and black Stan Smith trainers. I think the trick (for me) is to keep everything else pretty pared back and casual.
I can't imagine wearing it with anything other than black opaques and a quite plain black jumper. On searching I've found people wearing them with checked shirts but I don't think I could pull that off!
Sequin skirts look great with a black or white jumper/polo neck and tights and Chelsea boots! zippyswife you can definately pull that outfit off with a pair of black leather converse, they’ll make the outfit super casual, practical but also glam, you could also incorporate a short leather jacket. 40 is not too old at all so wear whatever you want!
Too clingy and seemingly not for those who're ample of tharse (thigh-arse).
If you look on ASOS they have a gorgeous plus size sequinned skirt and the model looks hot. I think a sequin skirt is a great way to draw attention to your curvy shape. Fashion is not just for the skinny.
That oasis one is actually quite a line bride as I don't want it too clingy either. Or they have a more subtle popcorn skirt in a similar a line shape with a little gold and the tiniest bit of sparkle.
I wore one last night- it's my Christmas party outfit which I will be wearing twice more.
Black mini skirt from primark. With black turtleneck, I think you'd call it. Thick black tights. Wore black trainers last night, will be ankle boots next time. A multi strand necklace with black beads. Bright red lipstick.
