- keeps me cool in hot weather and warm(er) in cold weather
- covers a multitude of sins (stubble, bruises from the buggy, etc)
- can sit cross-legged on the floor, unlike shorter varieties

- afraid I might be turning into Mrs DowdyMcFrump

Who cares if other people think they are nice or naff? If you like them, wear them. I am sure you look lovely.

Love them in winter with high-heeled fab boots when they still reach the ground.

I don't like 'em, so I'm in the naff camp.

I like them, and wear them a lot

I don't mind long, but floor length is a no from me. It looks sort of late 19thC and too much.

I wear them either in prints or plain, but I am rather tall. Usually just wear them with a vest and a cardi.

My style is smart with a teensy bit punk and goth. I can't be bothered to either take the time or expense to do full on grin.

Having DD has been a crisis of confidence as none of my pre-baby clothes are remotely practical anymore. I've utterly lost my style most days

'sort of late 19thC'

see that's what worries me. I don't think my style suits either my new body (thanks for the boobs, baby!) or my new lifestyle.

and I'm not sure if the long skirts have a spot in the new life yet.

See, I think floor-length is infintely classier than ankle-swinging, no?

cookielove Thu 09-Jul-09 20:34:37

yes buttercupwafflehead your right, i would only wear a long skirt that was meant to be floor length if it was bottom was resting on the floor if you see what i mean, but my legs are long thus making ankle swingers and my purse is to broke to buy anything long ann new

Well it depends on your style. It can look sort of boho (god I hate that word grin) or kooky and artfully carefree and different.

On me it would look more Lark Rise to Candleford/Upstairs Downstairs. So not a good look for me. Depends how you wear it I suppose.
