SUMMERS END VELVET SKIRT
Good skirt but too short for me
I ordered a few colours but sadly they were all too short for me. On the right person these skirts would be gorgeous and forever worn!
Had they have been longer (above the knee at least), I'd have all of them in every colour!!!

I Love, love, love this skirt. The colour is great and the fitting perfect. I will be able to wear my matching White Stuff cardigan along with a top I purchased elseehere with it. It is so nicely made and looks great with the top stitching. I can't wait to wear it. Now I feel I need one in the lovely green shade but may have to wait until another offer comes my way!

These skirts are a must for any wardrobe
I have purchased 3 of these skirts over the winter period and love all of them. The red one is a true Xmas red the green is a typical moss green and the deep purple is just lush. They wash fab and come up looking like new every time. I have worn all mine for many different occasions.
I did order in a size 16 but like to wear them on my hips and a little bit loose but if you like to wear them sitting on the waist and fitted then size down. I am 5 7" and they are not to short ie above the knee but if they sat on my waist I would probably be a little more cautious where I would bend down etc.
All in all these skirts are a MUST for any wardrobe and I know these will be getting lots of use not only for this season but for many to come. They have two front pockets which just set them apart from other skirts given the material they are made from.
I just hope that WS give us more of these skirts in more glorious colours as I know they will sell everytime.

Best skirt in ages
I have a lot of WS skirts but this is my favourite. by far. It has so much going for it.Its really warm and is so well cut it sits perfectly and doesn't stick out at the sides as some short skirts tend to do. I bought the 8 and its a nice snug fit (I wish WS would do a 6 as some 8s are just too big at the waist). I have been wearing this with the grey woolly tights and bryony boots and loads of people have asked me where I got it.

Soft and snuggly - perfect for cold days
Paired up with some nice thick tights and cosy boots, this is a wonderful skirt for cold days. I chose the gorgeous deep purple colour which looks perfect with a green tee. The detailed stitching around the bottom of the skirt adds some subtle texture as well.
I'm a 14-16 at the moment and chose to size up for this skirt, so that it sits a little lower on my hips.

Trendy Wardrobe Staple
I have bought two of these skirts in the red and purple, the lining is good - I only buy lined skirts - but it could do with being an inch longer as the skirt does creep a little. They came up very loose but that's ok as I wanted them to hang from the hip rather than the waist. They wash really well with minimal ironing. Pleased. They look good with stripey Breton tops and gilet.

I love this skirt, but at 5'7"and with legs id rather hide !!, I didn't buy one after trying it on a couple of times, but lust after it as it's so lovely. I read all the reviews , some said the length was just above knee, but it was def mid thigh in me , really short...please please Whitestuff, can you make your best sellers in two lengths . Id love this skirt if it was just above the knee

Gorgeous, sexy feel girly skirt
Ordered the olive skirt first and loved it but by the time I decided that i must have the red one too, it had sold out. NOOOOO! Ordered it in a size bigger and it still fits, just bit longer as it sits down on my hips. These skirts are so comfy, sexy and sumptuous looking. Ten out ten on this one White Stuff, make some more, they will sell out again.

I couldn't believe this skirt went OOS so quickly however I managed to track one down in house of fraser and I'm delighted with it. I'm looking to wear it Christmas day with black sparkle tights and shoe boots. The quality is excellent. If you are struggling to find stock check the concessions of the department stores. Well done WS.

Smart & casual
Fantastic skirt. Great fit, comfy, looks fab. I have this in purple and red. I would like it in green too, but it's sold out in my size at present. You won't be disappointed.

I picked the dark purple/ grape colour. It looks lovely with heeled boots, ankle boots and shoes. It finishes a few inches above my knee. Slightly A line (which I prefer), sits below my natural waist (another plus as I hate waisted skirts), nothing to dislike. The pockets are flattering. Just lovely.

Great little skirt to dress up or down.
Bought to go with the blackcurrant talkin knit. Lovely colour combo. Looks great dressed up with heeled ankle boots or dressed down with wedge boots and a chunky knit. Love it so much, I think I need it in the purple!!! True to size. I am 5ft 6" and it sits just above my knee. Fits quite low on hips, so if you want it shorter, size down so it sits higher on waist.

love this skirt
Bought this skirt in purple. It is very rich and a lovely soft velvet material. Can be dressed up or down. Will buy this skirt in another colour.

The perfect skirt
I wanted this skirt in red but ended up buying the purple as I could not decide between them. It was an added bonus that I had a 15% off voucher. Now I wish I'd bought both as I love this skirt so much. It looks really beautiful in velvet and I have had so many compliments when I've worn it.
It's quite short so I did go a size bigger so that I could wear it on the hips, but I absolutely love it. Well done WS another great skirt which will get a lot of wear :-)

Go To Skirt
Was a little worried when I first opened the package as I thought it would be too short (I am 5'8") and maybe would look too young on meâ€¦
but it sits on my hips therefore just above my knee, it's very comfortable, the green colour goes with most of my tops/knitwear and I am loving it!
Great detailing as always!

I love this skirt, it's a lovely bright red, well made very comfortable to wear. Slightly on the short side but not obscene . True to size. Will get lots of wear out of it :)

Gorgeous skirt - faultless
Just echoing some of the other comments - it's a great little skirt, good fit, flattering, perfect length, suitable for work and play. I got it in the green and have a similar purple WS velvet skirt from last year... I'd love a deep cranberry version...!

Fabulous fit and style
Another lovely White Stuff skirt for autumn; smart enough for work but the colours and lovely velvety feel make it fun too and endlessly versatile. True to size and sitting just above the knee, I hope to buy this in the other colours too.

Fab winter skirt
I have been waiting for a skirt in this fab deep red colour and WS have delivered! A really good quality fabric and subtle embellishment around the hemline. I am 5'6" and it finishes about 3" above the knee. I am usually 12-14 in skirts and I found the 14 was better as it is meant to sit on your hips. I found that it is not dead straight with v slight flair from hips giving a flattering shape.

Sits well on a size 14 and so lovely to touch be nice for all

Comfortable skirt in luxurious fabric
Really happy with this skirt, bought for work and outings. Lovely colour and feel, while easy to wear and a nice leg length without being too short for a more mature person! Have had lots of positive comments since wearing this skirt after only 2 days!!

Great Autumn skirt
Have worn this loads. The colour's great and it really comfy and durable (handles my 3 year old and 10 month old well). The only thing that could make it better would be if it was 1 inch shorter - it sits just above my knee and I think it would be more flattering if it was a bit shorter. I'm 5'7"

I bought this skirt last year in the mustard yellow and it was the best ever buy!
DELIGHTED this year to see it relaunched in a beautiful purple.
Fabulous, washes like a dream, looks great with grey, black etc...
Please repeat in more vibrant colours White Stuff, we love this one ! Tempted to buy the green also.

I'm not usually a skirt kind of person, but I took a fancy to this one as it looked great the way it had been styled in the online pictures - chic, but not fussy, and easy to wear. And in reality, it certainly lives up to its image. The purple haze colour is deep and lovely and the velvet material, soft and thick. The lining is a bonus as it improves the hang, although having said that there were some alarmingly long threads left on the lining seams. I think this is just a finishing issue as there hasn't been any unravelling so far and the skirt has already been in the washing machine a couple of times.
As I'm 5' 10'' I was a little worried that it might be a bit short. However, as the skirt is designed to sit on the hips - which I love as I can't stand stuff round my waist - it hangs just above the knee. Perfect!
As a new White Stuff customer, I'm thrilled with my purchases so far, so I'll definitely be back for more.

I love the fabric and the feel of this skirt. Great with thick tights and boots for the school run but even with thick tights I felt a little self conscious
about the length, another inch on the length and this would have been a perfect winter skirt.

Perfectly purple skirt!
Ok, I have to admit that purple is my favourite colour so I might be a tad biased here re:the colour but...Wow! This skirt is lovely! It is a beautiful deep shade of purple and the embroidery and lining, together with added stretch to the velvet, make this skirt a must! I am 5ft6 and it sits just below mid thigh on me. Whilst I agree that this might be a little shorter than some people may feel comfortable with, I think with a pair of thick tights on it should not be a problem. I can also comment that I have not had a problem matching the skirt with other items in my wardrobe and, believe me, I have a variety of shades of purple in there! It goes well with my WS Kingdom tee and lime green Eclipse tee as well as fuschia/mauve shades. In fact I matched it with my WS cardigans, scarves and belts too, especially the purple star button belt! It looks good with ankle boots and longer boots and you can change your look by wearing spotty tights or opaque tights. I could go on and on but for me, at least, I have found a versatile wardrobe classic and I couldn't be happier! Thank you White Stuff for my new favourite skirt and making me dare to bare my legs!

This shirt is far too short- much shorter than it looks in the photographs. I am 5'5" and it is a terrible length for me, very unflattering.
04 October 2013
I love these WS skirts.
Last year I bought the sulphur yellow velvet and this year the purple.
I'm 5'4" and this sits just above the knee and looks fabulous with tights and boots or brogues.
Might even order the green....
These are a generous cut so maybe order down a size.

Relaxed and comfortable. Dress up for work with a blouse or team up with a long sleeved top and scarf for a more casual look. Versatile skirt

Gorgeous skirt but too short
Everything about this was perfect except for the length. The moss green is gorgeous, the detailing on the skirt i loved, but the length finished mid thigh on me. I am not tall (5'4") but far too short for me to be comfortable wearing it. I am very reluctantly sending this back.
