New Look Tube Skirt
Advantages: Inexpensive. Available in Tall, plus sizes and maternity.
Disadvantages: Other better fitting and cheaper options available elsewhere.
Tube skirts are a modern fashion must have and they are a staple for any wardrobe in the way which jeans and leggings have been. They flatter any shape, creating a smooth shape and for a while Newlook was one of the main contenders in offering these skirts, when they first came out everyone knew their best bet to be able to buy a variety of colours was Newlook. Newlook have managed to keep this reputation but a shop around will find cheaper, longer lasting and more flattering skirts available.
For anyone who is a size 6-10 this skirt HAS to be bought in a smaller size (impossible for those who are a size six) or they simply do not fir properly around the waist. The skirt will not fall down and so is fine with longer tops where the waist is covered but for belly tops or vests it is clear that while the skirt is a good fit elsewhere it is not well fitting there. For those over a size ten the waist will sit fine but the back of the skirt will have a tendency to be smooth over the bottom and the stick out somewhat. Better fitting skirts can be found elsewhere. Newlook does still have the best choice in colours and so in some cases the skirt can be a good option, a helpful tip is to take the top you plan to wear it with to the shop and try the skirt on in a couple of sizes, that way you can see how it is going to look on.
The same style of skirt can be found for £2.99 in H&M, much cheaper than the Newlook version it fits better and lasts much longer. Having wore both skirts in a variety of colours I have found that the Newlook skirts fade after a few washes where the H&M versions are still going strong! Primark and other shops such as Republic have also been selling these skirts in a variety of fabrics and colours. Where Newlook does beat the competition is that it has also been selling there skirts in their tall, plus size and maternity ranges making this style available to all women.
Summary: If you are looking for one of these skirts shop around first as you may well find a better option
