    So I have this presentation and I'm thinking of wearing this pleated midi skirt but I'm not sure what to wear it with without looking like a school teacher out of WW2!!

    No offense, but it does look like something an old headteacher would wear.
    Maybe make it a lot shorter and wear some nice heels?

    Im afraid it is impossible to wear one without looking like a WWII teacher.

    You look about 40 with those clothes.

    actually I agree,(although really only if it's for something formal).

    OP, both blouses look wrong...it should be a short/3/4 sleeve length blouse, and should also be white....but most of all PLAIN! The second one you are wearing I think does make it look a bit WWII ish but you can funk it up by wearing a plain white blouse, maybe with some funky jewellery or something

    Also wear with heels, not boots.

    You certainly have the figure to pull it off

    Most girls can get away with mini skirts, and even those that can't seem to wear them anyway, but very few can pull off the above look. You look sensible/professional.

    I don't like them at all.

    EDIT: A pencil skirt would be a nicer version of these which can really show off a good figure.

    I bought a midi skirt too, but I can't get it to work at all, I think it's a lost cause.

    :p: Sorry i thought the same.

    If you are uncomfotable with wearing it short, somewhere around the knee point will be okay.

    I wouldnt wear those boots either:o:
    So... 'nay' it is.

    I much prefer the second option if it's any help.

    I think it looks ok! But maybe you shouldn't take my advice.

    Why do most academic people have such terrible dress sense.

    Looks greaaat...if you're in your fifties. I think a pencil skirt would look better with the blouses you're thinking of wearing. Oooh, and those boots! Get rid

    I think with the boots and maybe the colour it looks a bit frumpy, you seem to have a lovely figure though, if i were you i'd show it off more. If you want to wear the skirt i think it would look better if you didn't wear those boots with it.
