The Whistles Jersey Tube Skirt….don’t be put off by the fact it’s like a big bandage…


Today I combined three of my favourite elements in one outfit – navy, leopard print and lace. For the first time I wore my jersey tube skirt by Whistles (£55). I bought it with the Grazia discount offer way back at the start of the spring but held on to it until now.

When the weather gets warmer, sometimes its prudent for the hem line to get a little longer, rather than a little shorter (although this skirt does also come in a shorter length). It is really thick and supportive, rather like a big bandage I suppose but it’s nice to wear and it does keep everything in place. There’s no wobble when wearing this little number!

I have seen alternatives in other stores and people have mentioned the Topshop one to me but I would be reluctant to recommend any others without having tried them, due to issues of VPL, quality, thickness and such like. However believe me, wriggling into one is enough so for now I’ll hand this one over and I’ll let others make the recommendations.

Next time I wear this skirt I promise to accessorise in the Whistles way. Many apologies for forgetting my white sunglasses. Please forgive me (see below).

And just to illustrate the point that the skirt is like a huge bandage, I’ve included an image of it. See, no zips, buttons or anything else. A bit like those maternity bump support things really, only longer. I’m making it sound such an attractive option aren’t I?! But no seriously it is comfortable and despite being fitted in nature, it’s one that could be dressed down with skater trainers or converse – or indeed up, with heels and sparkles for the evening.

As we all know, tummies have a mind of their own during the day going from flat(ish) in the morning to looking 4 months pregnant by the evening (or even after breakfast) so a top which has a little length to disguise that particular issue, whilst still showing your hips/bottom is always an option.

Oh, and following on from yesterday, when my eyes were scanning the kitchen this morning I decided that the goldfish just have to go. They simply don’t match the new yellow colour scheme. They’re just too…well…gold. And the family are fine to eat as much fruit as they like, provided its lemons, melons or bananas. Other than that they’re out of luck.

    I have the striped version of this skirt and I have worn it a lot. It's so comfortable. Although it doesn't sound as thick as the navy one. Navy looks lovely too.
