Where can I get a long tiered skirt to cover up and stay cool?

I saw this one here in Next online, was about to order and then realised it was a maternity one. Grrr.

Anyone MNing in the rain got any ideas?

Bumping for the evening crowd before giving up altogether.

Matalan had some nice ones in store, but can see them online I'm afraid...

Those skirts are very (sshhh) mumsy. Would you consider an alternative? Or do you have your heart set on one? Why are you keen on covering up?

Nomads! they are even fair trade.

Have arrived home to find some messages. Thanks all. Will read now.

I think long skirts can work if worn with fitted top and flat flat ethnicy sandals and brown feet!And if they are not voluminous. But I fear it's the tiers which make them look a tad old fashioned.

Nomads new to me so thanks for that one blithedance. Like the East ones, Heated.

Mrsm. I work in a secondary school and am not exposing my pale, unfaked, ready to be waxed legs to the eyes of 15 year olds. But I am looking for a stylish boho-y one?? And I promise to wear my g-string / tattoo / mini combo as soon as I've done my legs.

Will you come back if I promise to look for a non-tiered version, Mrs M? Do you like the East non-tiered ones. I thought they showed promise.

Joe Browns?

mrsmaidamess Wed 08-Jul-09 19:14:29

Only if you say pretty please <sticks bottom lip out>

mrsmaidamess Wed 08-Jul-09 19:16:49

Hmm okay <relents>

this is the best one on the page. With some gold gladiator flats and a v neck vest top/little cardi it could be okay

Sorry I am so slow there is no point trying to have a conversation with me.

LOL could be OK.

Thanks BB. Half price too. I do love a non-tiered bargain
