BRICK LANE SKIRT
Fun and floaty but just too short
This skirt is lovely. A soft, silky fabric which you wouldn't think would be suitable for winter weather but, because it is fully lined, I think you would easily get away with is with cosy tights and boots.
The colours are quite dark; I think you would be looking for black, brown, rust and burgundy to team with this or maybe a light grey to soften the effect.
Sadly, for me, I just think it is too short. My own fault really, for not studying the 'product details' but I have another shortish skirt from White Stuff - navy blue cotton with embroidered coloured sports - and I rather assumed that they would be similar. On checking them against each other, this Brick Lane Skirt is a good 2" shorter. At my age, I think this is just a bridge too far and not something that cosy tights and boots can solve for me, so it will have to go back.
It is lovely and I am very sad to see it go. Perhaps White Stuff could consider producing items in different lengths - regular, tall - as, for my height, I seem to have longish legs and, with other brands, I sometimes end up wearing the 'tall' version to get the length I need.

Cute little skirt
Really cute little skirt. I'm usually a size 10 but as is often the case when I shop in White Stuff the size 8 fitted me best. The skirt has handy little pockets and looks great on.

Too short but could be great on younger person
This skirt was much shorter than I thought For someone of my age ( 61), although a 10, it was far too short even with boots.
The material was good and the fit was okay, just the length.
With the 20% discount it was worth the money but otherwise expensivel

Love this skirt
I bought this skirt with the red 'plain talkin knit' and together they look great as a smart/ casual autumn outfit - goes well with tall brown boots.

Light weight skirt for autumn
This is a lightweight (but lined) skirt with pockets and it sits just above the knee - granted I am only 5"3 so may come up quite short on taller women! Fit is great as it is available in a 6! The design and fabric means it is easy to wear yet looks smart. A bit pricey perhaps but with a discount code worth it.

This was my first purchase from White Stuff. I absolutely love this skirt. The fabric is soft and the lining makes it fit really well. Lovely colours too mean that you can easily put together several outfits. Looks great with tights and boots - I feel ready for the autumn now!

Nice fitting and detail
This skirt is really nice fitting. pockets are handy but not too obvious that it doesnt look attractive. Wear this skirt to work! Its short but not too short and i have long legs.
