TIME FOR A CUPPA SKIRT
Nice but v.thin
I tried this in the Stepney yellow colour which was a nice mustard colour. But got the size wrong, I needed to size up to a 12 in this to get it to hang off my hips otherwise it was just too short for me.

Loved the colour but too short
I bought this hoping it wasn't going to be as short as some customers had said in reviews. Colour was perfect for the outfit I had in mind but just too short. Please could you you it in a longer length?

Too short by far - very disappointed
Not as advertised! I ordered the skirt with the 20% discount code and I thought it would be ideal for work, especially as the weather gets colder. It was described as knee length but on arrival I found that this was certainly not the case. Unfortunately, it has had to go back as there is no way it would be appropriate for work. This is a real shame as the quality, style, weight and general appearance is exactly what I was looking for. Longer version please??

Why are you making all your skirts shorter this year!!
Last year they were a perfect 55cm, won't now be buying any :-(((

Not what I expected
I was really looking forward to wearing this skirt BUT I won't be! I ordered a 10 and a 12 knowing that White Stuff sizing can sometimes be a bit hit and miss. I could barely get the 10 over my hips and the 12 was just too big. Aside from that the skirt is way too short and certainly not just above the knee as stated (I'm only 5'5). Both going back unfortunately. V disappointed.

small fit and too short
Depends what you are looking for but for me not a keeper.
Blue colour- great go's with loads of other things
Plain, should be a wardrobe basic
Too short by far on me and I'm 5"4 so not tall- I don't want a mini
Quite thin material for the price, not worth full price
Small fitting, I am a 10, maybe a 12 would've been better.
If I wanted a skirt like this I think I could get a much cheaper one of same quality on the high street...
Would recommend tho, it maybe for some people, just not me.

Bought this with a 15 % discount so absolutely loved it. This skirt fits very well. Pockets dont stand out. Stays well after washing too. I am 5'3 and this skirt is a perfect length, just above the knee.
Have already worn it several times and seems to go with everything, a casual tee or a nice silk blouse.
Love my purchase.

Love this skirt!
This is a lovely skirt that I would really recommend - in fact, I won't just in case my size sells out in all the other colours that I now want to buy! I am a size 10 and bought the size 10 which is true to size. It fits beautifully just under the waist, is a very respectable length on my 5'4 frame and is not bulky. I have already worn it with a sleeveless shirt and flat shoes but planning to get lots of wear out of it during the winter with thick tights and jumpers. It is a little pricey for a skirt but I think it will be worn enough that I will never be resentful of the price I paid. Would be a bargain if you had a voucher!

This skirt is made out of poor quality. The fabric is very thin. The colour doesn't match the picture. In reality skirt isn't yellow but more greenish. Aside from that, the skirt is really short. Being 5.7 the skirt is a hand's width above the knee.

The cranberru crush colour skirt is gorgeous. A very rich dark pink, really nice for Autumn and Winter. I am hoping that WS will do a scarf with some of this colour in, so that I can bring an outfit together. Skirt is just above knee length and I am a shortie - 5 foot 1 inch. A line, but still a narrow fit.

throw-away fashion at a high price
I ordered this skirt in blue and chartreuse for work. I was surprised at the poor quality of the fabric, expecting the weight of a normal corduroy. But the fit was good and the length perfect for me (size 8, 5ft5, 2" above the knee)..and I don't have a lot of time for shopping.. so I made the mistake of keeping them both. 2 weeks in and the blue one split down the centre back waist band as I was tucking it in! I certainly wasn't being rough. Also the bum of both skirts are already looking sligthly tired where I sit on them. I WISH I had had the sense to send them back. Nearly Â£80 for 2 and I think I'll be lucky to get one season out of them. Really disappointing White Stuff!

Poor quality, shorter than picture appears
I bought this in navy to go with the Mojito cardi and expected it to be a wardrobe staple for this autumn. I was however disappointed to find a mini skirt (the picture is quite misleading on length) and very thin material. At that price, it had to go back! There are similar, cheaper skirts in much better quality fabric in other high street stores (which will remain nameless!) which I have just ordered from. Disappointing White Stuff - you usually get it so right!!

Bought this for my wife as a present in Raspberry following her seeing it in the catalogue. She is realy pleased with it and would highly recommend it, a good fit, nice quality with some cool details.

Beware the stepney colour...
is NOT the rich gold your monitor would have you believe (well, mine did). It is something indescribable between yellow and green and a bit dirty looking, honestly. I liked the rich gold so back it went :(

Not White Stuff usual quality
I ordered two skirts in different colours because I have been so happy with all my White Stuff purchases. Was so disappointed with the quality of these skirts- very thin needle cord and lined with an equally thin polyester. The length of the skirt was more akin to a mini and I'm only 5ft 4 ins!!

London blue , lovely, useful skirt
I have four of the velvet minimal/summers end skirts which I love. This is ever so slightly longer which is useful and adds to its versatility. Just above my knee 5'3" worn low toward hips. Love it and suspect it will go with lots of my WS tops as well as the mino jumper. 10 in the blue fits beautifully, tried the yellow - it was tighter, they do seem to vary.

Lovely but small fitting
I was pleased to see the Time me for a Cuppa skirt from last year return in different colours, however I found this seasons version small fitting and much shorter than I would have liked, sitting the wrong side of mid-thigh on me (I'm 5'10"). Overall though, the skirt is good quality and I know it will suit a lot of other people. It would be great if WS could do some slightly longer casual skirts.

Stepney yellow - lovely colour
I love the colour of this skirt, but it is way too short for me. Wouldn't feel comfortable wearing it, even with thick tights, so unfortunately am sending it back.

Nice skirt but strange colour
I bought this skirt originally in the Stepney Yellow. It looked like a nice colour on the website but when I got it, it had quite a strange olive green tint to it. So I have exchanged it for safe old navy! However, it is a nice skirt, nice fit but quite light cord so not sure how warm it will be in winter.

This is a very basic looking skirt. It is made from a light corduroy with fine stripes. It is a pity that it has a polyester lining and not a lining made from natural materials. The colour is a deep blue. It goes to about 5cm above the knee on someone 1.73m tall and is essentially true to size. It has two very deep side pockets and is slightly a-line. As it is so simple and in a neutral colour it will match a lot of tops.

Really nice skirt, I am 5'2 and it comes just above the knee. Flattering style for my pear shape! A bit disappointed that the button has come off after wearing for the first time though.

More colours please!
I love this skirt. Perfect length, so comfortable to wear and yet looks great too. It's going to be the skirt I wear most this winter. I bought the one in steel and am disappointed the other one is out of stock. Please make this skirt in other colours - I'd buy several! I'm usually a 10, but the 8 fitted perfectly.

Really lovely skirt.
This is the most flattering skirt I've ever found. It's the perfect length (I'm 5'6 and it's a couple of inches above my knee) and the shape fits really well over my hips and bottom. The fact it's lined means it sits nicely too and the pretty fabric inside the waist band is a lovely finishing touch. Please keep offering this style in different colours of cord - I'd buy lots more!

Great everyday skirt
Everyday skirt that can be dressed up or down. The material is thin but being lined you can get away with it, if wearing thick tights. I'm 5'4" and the skirt sits a couple of inches above my knees.
20 October 2013
perfect skirt for every day wear, goes well with boots or shoes
16 October 2013
Great a-line pencil cord skirt
I love wearing skirts and boots through the winter and this fitted the bill. Like the fact its lined as it makes it a more substantial skirt. Had it not I think the cord material would have been a bit thin for winter. Will be wearing this a lot, the fit is good and a great colour.

So glad WS got the sold out sizes back in stock! Fantastic skirt, short enough not to appear too frumpy, but long enough for those who want to cover some of their legs. I am 5'5" (with long legs) and it comes to about 2 inches above my knee. Looks fab with the STRIPE SUZIE LOU SCOOP TEE in navy and the apple print scarf, along with some greyish thick winter tights. well done WS - more skirts this length please!

My alternative to jeans!
I live in jeans & tee's but like to feel girly from time to time but having such a busy life its not practical to dress up every day so this skirt is perfect to throw on with a pair of thick tights, nice simple top & comfortable enough to go about my day.
Its not as thick as think & I bought the 10 thinking it was an 8 (incorrect label on hanger in the shop), the 10 is baggy around the waist even when I pull it down onto my hips so I could have got away with an 8, I am typical 10 normally in most shops.
Love this skirt! Wish had more colours though as I'd buy more :)

great skirt for everyday wear
Very comfy skirt, very soft and nice detailing on the lining which you can't see in the pictures. I was looking for a casual skirt to wear with thick tights and boots, this fits the bill perfectly. If anything I would say it's a bit expensive but with a discount code was much more acceptable.

Nice skirt, but lengths might vary
I liked the skirt so ordered another, but the second was much shorter! I'm 5'2" and the first was slightly above the knee #perfect for me# but the second was well above the knee.
I like the skirt because it's a good fit, versatile and I feel comfortable wearing it. It's fitted but not too tight #slightly loose if anything# and it makes a change to have a nice skirt that I can dress down with a pair of pumps and feel casual but not scruffy.
The material is not good enough quality to make it good value though, as although it's lined and feels soft it's quite thin, which makes the skirt look cheaper than it is.
