I recently purchase a lovely skater skirt from New Look and I loved the fit and style of it. I saw this other skater skirt which is slightly different and I decided I also loved this one too. The skater skirt was purchased from the New Look website and cost me £14.99 which I thought was reasonable for a good quality skirt. The skirt comes in one colour which is black and comes in sizes 6-18. The skirt has a leather look waistband which gives the skirt a nice finishing touch. I thought this would look great for the day or night and the leather look waistband gives it a nice finishing touch rather than having to add a belt to it to glam it up a little bit more. I normally go for a size 8/10 in skirts from New Look, how-ever as the waistband was made from a leather look material I knew it wouldn't stretch so I decided to purchase a size 10 to be on the safe side. When I received the skirt I couldn't wait to try it on. The skirt looked exactly like it did on the website with the leather look waistband, which is just under 1 inch in width. The skirt felt really soft and was light and looked quite floaty. The skirt does have a concealed side zip to ensure you can get the skirt on and off as the waistband does not stretch. The size 10 skirt fit me perfectly and sat on the top of my hips without feeling too tight.
The skirt is a nice length and isn't too short and would be suitable to wear during the day or night. I have worn the skirt on a few occasions, mainly on night's out with a nice top tucked into the skirt such as a vest top. I have also worn the skirt with a slight cropped top which is also a lovely look. The skirt is really comfortable and feels light on. The skirt moves with every movement I make. The skirt is made from 95% Polyester and 5% Elastane so it can be washed in the machine but must be left to dry on its own rather than be tumbled dried. I have washed the skirt twice and it always comes out looking as good as new without any signs of stretching or the material bobbling. I know this is very similar to my other skater skirt, how-ever I loved the leather look waistband on this one. This is a great skirt and can be worn in a number of different ways for both the day and the evening. Whether you want a new skirt for the day/night, party season or for any occasion then this one is perfect and looks great on.
