no we must stop this trend!!!! looks nice on youngish girls, but not on older rounder laydeees IMO. Have seen hundreds already today, let's be different!

I've got the browny gypsy skirt with no belt. Am quite happy.

northerner · 12/07/2005 15:26

I have brown and white gypsy skirts. Must confess to wearing them with a belt and a strappy vest top.

gingerbear · 12/07/2005 15:27

Especially if like me your 'arse is the size of a small country'

FrenchGirl · 12/07/2005 15:27

ah you see brown no belt sounds good to me, it's all that david hamilton virginal white gipsy skirt big belt stuff I am beginning to hate!!!
sure you look great in brown

lunavix · 12/07/2005 15:27

Mine's the size of a 'small county' hence the skirt in brown as white is most definately unflattering.

FrenchGirl · 12/07/2005 15:27

oops northerner.....

ninah · 12/07/2005 15:28

it's not you, it's nasty

charleepeters · 12/07/2005 15:28

I love the skists but i am short so i dont think they suit me, i have one chunky belt but its not a circly one i pair it with my 3/4 length jeans i think it looks good for summer, i may be wrong but i dont give a monkeys, i love the gypsie look though howere being short and slightly podgy i doesnt work for me

northerner · 12/07/2005 15:29

Went to a BBQ on Sunday wearing my white one. Dh's step Gran (she's 91) retorted 'what are you wearing? - looks like the petticoat I wore under my wedding dress'

gingerbear · 12/07/2005 15:29

lunavix, only a county? mine is heading towards a sub-continent - Australasia perhaps.

northerner · 12/07/2005 15:30

Well I like the look. I will continue to wear the gypsey look with pride.

dillydally · 12/07/2005 15:32

The combination of specifically the white skirts and those belts is starting to be a Londontown uniform and I am standing out like an old fart refusing to conform.
My arse is the size of Monaco.

charleepeters - yes, at 5 ft 3 and ahem a bit over the 8 stone weightwatchers tell me I'm meant to be I think I am the wrong shape for the look

gingerbear - yes, I'd say my arse is the size of a small county hence I think I can get away with the brown gypsy skirt, but not the white!!!

dillydally · 12/07/2005 15:33

My DD has one in bright green - we team it with fake birkenstocks and no belt.

it's the belt that does it ... eeuhw
I've got a v pale beige gypsy skirt and a big pregnant belly for my barefoot in the kitchen look

aloha · 12/07/2005 15:39

Given away all my tiered gypsy skirts to charity shop! Not only did I look the size of small planet in them, I do think they are too ubiquitous now, sadly.

oliveoil · 12/07/2005 15:41

i have a drop waisted one fom asda, so not quite gypsy.

no caps, eating magnum icecream mmmmmm, typing 1 handed

dramaqueen72 · 12/07/2005 15:42

I've got a black maternity one, also good for my barefoot and pg look ninah . not keen on the white ones +circley belt thingy tho tbh.

lilibet · 12/07/2005 15:42

I do feel that I am the only person under the age of 60 who doesn't own a white skirt!

oliveoil · 12/07/2005 15:43

white would get minging too quick imo


Blossomhill · 12/07/2005 15:43

I did like the belts but now I see them everywhere and so think they look cheap and plastic!
