I have always stayed well away from skater dresses manly because when I put weight on it goes around my waist, so the least happening in that area the better. Secondly because everytime I buy one - I get home and try it on - only to find it sits just above the knee! I can't bare a skater skirt that sits there. In my eyes the skater has to be short. Short I tell you. Long story short - this skater skirt ticks all my skater dream boxes. A definite must have in amy girls wardrobe. Please excuse the pics - ive still got a cold/flu and I haven't left the house in ages! Cabin Fever!
