TIME FOR A CUPPA SKIRT
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.

perfect skirt for every day wear, goes well with boots or shoes

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.

good all rounder
This is a good little skirt to add as a staple to your wardrobe, I am 5' 2" and it is just above the knee, perfect to wear with tights and ankle or knee high boots, keep doing this length White Stuff, so many stores skirts are just too long! Thank you, I will keep buying if you keep doing skirts this length

This skirt is described as 'knee length'. I'm 5ft and it comes a good 2-3 inches above the knee - not a flattering look on my not so slender legs! Will try the 'Time for a cuppa knee' skirt which is longer - I didn't spot this one first time around so slightly misleading. If you want a true knee length skirt, maybe try the other version of this one.

Perfect all season skirt
I had to write a review to say that is skirt is the perfect length, I'm 5'2" and most WS skirts fall just below my knee, which is fine, but it's great to have one that's different. This one sits just above my knee which is lovely. The fabric is thinner than I expected, but with two layers it's perfect either for keeping cool in the summer or layering up with tights and boots in the winter.

I really wanted to like this skirt as it could have been so versatile - for work and for casual. I am 5ft 6 and the size 12 was just a tad short - another inch of fabric would have made all the difference and it would have been great. Sadly, had to return.

Will be wearing this all Autumn
I have been looking for a skirt like this for ages, so bought it the day after receiving the catalogue.
I bought a 16 and it is extremely comfortable. It is a bit big on the waist when standing up, but is perfect when sitting down. I feel slimmer wearing a looser skirt, even though it is my usual size!
A great buy.

Too short, and thinner material than expected
Bought this skirt as liked the cut and colour when saw it online, bought my usual Size 14, and was so eagerly awaiting to wear it, also the previous reviews encouraged me to get it as well. Unfortunately, am rather disappointed with the overall make of it, maybe its just me, I have many White Stuffs clothing which I have bought direct from the shop, and this was my first time buying online, sadly not too happy, as firstly I am only 5'6 (approx 168cm) in height and the skirt was way too short for me, unless I wore it on my hips or below, but that only made it uncomfortable. Perhaps should have ordered a size up to 16, but that wouldn't really do as it will end up frumpy or too baggy on the sides. Will have to send it back and not too happy to do so, as always loved White Stuffs clothes, and have never returned any before. However, others might feel otherwise as we all have different body shapes and sizes. It is smaller or true to size, if you are taller or can't decide, better to get more than one size to avoid disappointment or size up, also material is too thin, even though has lining, not really ideal for winter, prefer slightly thicker material, afterall cord should be so, even if it is fine cord. Sorry White Stuff, really hope you can make a skirt just an inch longer and a tiny bit thicker in fine cord...please...

Classic short skirt
Pleased with this one. Made from fine baby cord. Finished above my knee. Fits nicely on the bum without being tight. It feels as if there is lycra in the garment as it moves with you, but there isn't any. I had 15% off so pleased with the purchase. It will look great in the winter when worn with different styles/ coloured boots and jumpers.

Just what I had been looking for
I have spent all summer looking for the perfect little skirt and here it is. I had two old faithfuls which kicked the bucket finally this summer and then I found this one. It fits just as I want it to although I had to get a 14 instead of a 12 so that it sits lower on my waist to make it look longer in the leg ( I am 6ft tall). It is so easy to wear, beautifully made and I am still trying to work out the colour - sometimes brownish or navyish or greyish or blackish. Fab.

Just what I needed.
Fine cord skirt, excellent fit, very flattering.
Quite as bit above the knee, I am 5'10".
Delighted to find a plain skirt with which I can wear all my patterned tops and winter woollies.
Fully lined and very good quality.
A charcoal grey which to me is a colour that almost anything goes with.

Lovely basic cord skirt
Lightweight fine cord material skirt with lining provides a flattering fit without bulkiness. Found my usual size 10 large, so opted for a size 8 which fits comfortably around the waist. Some may prefer this skirt to sit on their hips. The skirt is shorter than described. The size 10 sitting above the knee, the size 8 mid thigh. Would recommend buying a couple of sizes if purchasing on line to save disappointment. Overall very pleased with purchase, a wardrobe staple!
