I hide no fact that I love New Look. They are a great High Street retailer that offers great clothes on a cheaper end budget. They are also very forgiving in their fabric & cut. Often, when shopping for larger than average sizes (anything over a 14), it can be daunting on the High Street. They can leave you feeling rejected and abnormal, but I haven't found that with New Look.
This particular skirt is comfortable, an elasticated waist band and a nice length. I bought two, 16 and 18, (because I can be either or size) and I found that a size 16 was better, which always puts me in a good mood! The length is nice, it's above knee, but not unflatteringly so. It can ride up during the day, so be careful ladies who are apple shaped! And I wouldn't suggest bending over without a pair of thick tights if you like to wear it above the waist!
The material is a thick woolen type textile, which makes it a good winter skirt, rather than summer. I would wear this skirt more in the day time than a party night out.
After several washes though it has started to make little bobbles where the material has come loose and matted (like with most woolen clothes), but for an every day cost effective essential, the one skirt has lasted me for 2 years now.
I will definitely be repurchasing this skirt when I need to!
