Is this skirt too short for a second date?

(54 Posts)
Namila Thu 09-Aug-18 17:36:58

I bought this skirt a few days ago and I'd love to wear it to the date I have tomorrow night.

The date will be drinks at 7pm in a nice (but not formal) bar. Temperature should be 23 degrees according to the weather forecast.

Planning to wear it with dressy flat sandals, a fitted t-shirt and a blazer. I am late 20s.

Yay or nay? Too short? Too sexy? Too casual?

Please help! grin

I don't think it's the shortness but the material, black denim type yes. But a no from me sorry.

BaconCrispsGone Thu 09-Aug-18 17:45:23

It's fine standing, but looks like the kind of thing that would ride right up if you sat down

Vitalogy Thu 09-Aug-18 17:46:21

You've a nice figure/legs btw.

Yes that’s fine, you’re late 20s that’s not inappropriate at all and dressed right it’ll look like you’ve made an effort but not OTT

I think it looks fine for date, would look better with a plain t-shirt tucked in and some converse/Vans. I think it will look odd with a blazer.

Looks like the sort of skirt my 25 yo DD wears all the time for going out for drinks etc. It certainly isn't too short and you have lovely legs.

Jeffers3 Thu 09-Aug-18 17:48:21

So yeah maybe too casual depending on what you are doing.

I've seen lots of teens/twenties in these skirts this summer and they look lovely, I say go for it!

ItsLikeRain Thu 09-Aug-18 17:50:11

Love it. Wear what you like!

It's too denim for a nice bar in the evening.

ApolloandDaphne Thu 09-Aug-18 17:55:24

It looks nice with the top you are wearing too.

ChishandFips33 Thu 09-Aug-18 17:59:23

It's a yes here too

fannyfarter Thu 09-Aug-18 18:05:20

I like it, you’ve got the figure for it so go for it! Definitely not too short!

KatnissK Thu 09-Aug-18 18:08:32

No, it's mid-thigh and you have good legs. Go for it! Good luck with the date.

flutteryleaves Thu 09-Aug-18 18:25:06

you look great! outfit sounds nice and not crazy attention seeking. enjoy your date.

AnnabelleLecter Thu 09-Aug-18 18:28:28

Another vote for wear it

Annabelle4 Thu 09-Aug-18 18:28:50

It's perfect!

HollyBollyBooBoo Thu 09-Aug-18 18:30:21

Love it but don't like the idea of a blazer, the skirt is too casual for that.

Nyancat Thu 09-Aug-18 18:31:33

Id go t-shirt and trainers with it rather than flats and blazer but apart from that it's a yes.

Sleephead1 Thu 09-Aug-18 18:38:26

I don't think it's too short but not sure if it will go with a blazer I think if you are wearing that and a t shirt and Sandles I'd just wear that as I think the blazer would look wrong with the outfit agree converse would look good.

Annabelle4 Thu 09-Aug-18 18:42:16

I disagree, and wouldn't wear trainers/converse to a nice bar. (Or any bar for that matter)

Jupiter9 Thu 09-Aug-18 20:13:16

You've got the legs so why not. Good luck.

Scabetty Thu 09-Aug-18 20:39:56

Yes, wear it styled as you say or with trainers.

Knitjob Thu 09-Aug-18 20:41:33

Looks lovely. You have a great figure. How does it look sitting down though, will you be trying to pull it down a bit all evening?
