Where can I get a nice skirt made of leggings material?

I've seen other people wearing leggings and skirts made out of the same material and I want to give it a try - where can I get some that are decent quality and not too expensive?

do you mean tube skirts like whistles ones?

they're the best (mentioned here) for quality.

TBPH (to be perfectly honest) my shorter Whistles tube is great but rides up.... reminds me of late 80's mini skirts in similar fabric. thank F I wear opaques with them! men at work etc stare at my legs.... when I wear these skirts. eeek!

Yep that's the type of thing but I can't bring myself to spend £45 on one! And I'm a bit worried about it riding up which is why I don't want to spend too much on one...

H&M has loads of them

Yes H&M always have them.

Hiya I've seen leggings with an in built skirt over the top on the Joe Browns website. I think they do them in black, grey, brown and blue.

NameChange70 Mon 14-Oct-13 10:03:40

ps I think they were twenty quid ...

I've seen them in Matalan and loads in h&m as others have said.

They ride up like a bloody stallion I warn you! Primark have them usually as well, in a few colours I have a stack as sort of decency things, I'll often bum round the house in leggings but no one but of dh and myself need to see that!

H and m!!
Short ones 3.99 long ones 9.99 I think.
Love mine...for a short black I wear with grey rights and a grey one, and a few stripey ones. They look cool with boots, leather biker jacket and scarf...perfect for Autumn x

I've just discovered Boden's breadwinner skirt. It's jersey fabric and gorgeous. I tried the whistles one but unfortunately it didnt suit my bum shape. With 20% off code iirc it was cheaper than whistles one too.

bishboschone Mon 14-Oct-13 12:21:11

H and m have them for £3.99

bishboschone Mon 14-Oct-13 12:22:22

I think someone once linked to a hush one which was leggings and a skirt all together .

snowlie Mon 14-Oct-13 13:53:05

Uniqlo has a nice blue one, it doesn't ride up too much either.

snowlie Mon 14-Oct-13 14:44:31

Sorry forgot to attach the link

All Saints do combined a leggings/skirt thing here. It's so lovely and soft, rather overpriced for what it is though.

plipplops Wed 16-Oct-13 17:15:25

Thought I'd update - bought a couple in H&M today, thanks so much for the tipsthanks. Might get a more expensive one in time but they seem pretty good quality, I'm really pleasedgrin

I got one at the weekend from Tesco for £10 and its fab! Nice thick jersey material which kept its shape even when i wore it all day at work and its not clingy at all. Well recommended!

Snowlike Wed 16-Oct-13 18:25:14

Any links to the tesco and h&m purchases please!

plipplops Wed 16-Oct-13 18:38:56

here's the H&M one. Can't go far wrong for £3.99 (and got a stripy one for £2 in the sale, bargainsmile)
