H&M Tube Skirt
Advantages: Cheap and versatile
Disadvantages: Quite short
I bought this skirt as my work uniform requires wearing a black skirt and as I didn't already own one, I went along the high street trying to find something suitable. This is perfect for the purposes I need it for; so perfect, in fact, that the majority of girls at my work have the exact same one.
The main reason it is so good is that it is cheap - it costs only £3.99 which is an absolute bargain, so much so that I bought another one a couple of weeks after the first, and also own it in different colours. It's also available in different patterns. As a skirt for work or college it works well because it looks smart without being part of a suit or overly formal. It is also comfortable - the fabric it's made out of is fairly stretchy so it fits well without being too tight or too loose. It also works well on my body shape, as I have a significantly smaller waist than hips; skirts are often too loose at the waist or too tight on the hips but this is not the case with this one!
The sizing is done on an XS to XL basis rather than by traditional dress sizes; as a size 6-8 I own it in extra small and it fits perfectly. Length wise, it comes to between my knee and mid-thigh. I'm 5 foot 2, or thereabouts, so it could look too short on someone significantly taller. The only issue is that if I'm moving about a lot at work it tends to ride up a little bit and can become too short for a work environment.
The main thing I love about this item is that it's cheap and versatile; I can wear it to work and then on a night out, or to uni and then down to the pub. It's also durable particularly considering the price; I've owned my original one for four months now and wear it at least one a week if not more often, and it hasn't shown any obvious signs of wear and tear.
Summary: A wardrobe essential!
