      Style Trial | The Mullet Mini Skirt

      ASOS Volume Skater Skirt With Extreme Dip Back, £38 If you thought (or maybe even hoped…) high-low skirts were, like, SO last season, think again. Last week, ASOS released this red, mini version of the mullet skirt, and ever since, we’ve been scratching our heads and wondering why it reminds…

      Five Fashion Bloggers Wear Primark’s gingham skirt

      Five Fashion Bloggers Wear Primark’s Gingham Skirt When we featured Primark’s pink gingham circle skirt in our Spring/Summer 2014 preview it went down pretty well with our readers. And also with ourselves: in fact, your Chief of Police managed to track down one of these suspects last week, and can…

      Catch of the Day | Topshop blurry check pencil skirt

      The Fashion Police don’t JUST catch criminals. Sometimes our officers also manage to net some awesome fashion items while we’re out patrolling the streets of style, and in this new feature we’ll be highlighting just a few of them for you. Here’s today’s catch: Topshop blurry check pencil skirt, £40…

      Style Trial | tulle ballerina skirts

      Once the sole province of ballerinas and, well, little girls, tulle skirts have been making their presence known in the fashion world lately, which made us think it was high time to put this trend On Trial… Raluca Mihalceanu, $297 Topshop ballerina midi skirt, £50 Coast Cordelia skirt, £135 Beloved by…

      How to Wear a Full Skirt

      The current trend for full skirts has The Fashion Police jumping for joy: with their dramatic silhouette and retro-inspired feel, this is one trend we can definitely get behind. Although full skirts have been around for a long time,  however, they can be tricky to wear without feeling like you…

      WANTED! Anthropologie bowtie pencil skirt

      Anthropologie bowtie pencil skirt, £118 We’ve been focusing a lot of full skirts lately (And we’ll have some more of those for you tomorrow, so don’t say we didn’t warn you), so we thought this Anthropologie bowtie pencil skirt might make for a nice change of pace. This is about…

      River Island gold embroidered skater skirts

      River Island skirts River Island have been doing a great line in skater skirts this season. We featured some of their scuba skirts in our neoprene roundup last week, but it’s this gold textured number that really has our fingers hovering over the “buy now” button. The basic shape of…

      Wanted Wednesday | Anthropologie Emeline Tulle Skirt

      Anthopologie isn’t a brand we feature nearly often enough here on TFP. It’s not that we don’t like it: far from it, in fact. But as much as we love some of Anthropologie’s products, we often find them just a little bit overpriced, and so, rather than taunt ourselves with…

      Full skirts for Fall 2013

      Full skirts: The Fashion Police love ‘em, as you can probably tell from many of our outfit picks. When we heard that they’d be making a “comeback” for Fall 2013, then, our first reaction was, “Comeback? Why, where have they been?” and our second was simply, “Oh, who cares: bring…

      Denim Skirts: Crime or Classic?

      Last week we addressed the thorny issue of double denim, and whether or not its wearing constitutes a crime of fashion. (Verdict: the jury was divided in the comments section, but our Facebook officers delivered a resounding “GUILTY” verdict.) This week, we turn our attention to another denim-related matter: denim…

      Save or Splurge: Stripe pencil skirts

      We first reported on the bold stripes trend a few months ago, and now that it’s in full swing, and we’ve been seeing in black and white for the past few weeks, we’ve noticed that one particular item has started to emerge as the leader of this particular look. We…

      The ugliest skirts in the world

      The Ugliest Skirts of 2012

      While skirts aren’t quite as prone to taking a beating from the ol’ ugly stick as their sisters, dresses, are, there are still some designers out there who struggle to make this most simple of items without making it see-through, indecently short, or giving it a drop-crotch. It shouldn’t even…

      When is a mini skirt not a mini skirt?

      When is a mini skirt not a mini skirt? When it’s just a flimsy scrap of fabric, slung loosely around the hips, of course. In fact, in that case, it’s not even a SKIRT. Or an item of clothing for that matter. It is, however, most definitely a crime of…

      Style Trial: Mullet Skirts

      [Skirts: GoJane] It’s no use: we’ve been hoping that if we just ignored them for long enough, mullet skirts (or high-low skirts, if you prefer) would quietly slink off back to wherever they came from. Here we are, though, well into summer 2012, and the skirts that are party in…

      Men in Skirts: Rick Owens mens drawstring skirt

      We’ve long been of the opinion that as women are able to wear pretty much whatever they like, we can see no reason whatsoever why men shouldn’t be able to do the same, and slip into a skirt or dress every now and then, if they feel the need. The…

      Skirt… or cardigan? You choose!

      Is it a skirt? Or is it a cardigan? It’s both! One minute it’s a really ugly skirt: But the next minute? It’s a cardigan! Isn’t that… clever? At first, we thought this garment was only a skirt/cardigan (a “skirtigan”?) hybrid in the same way that ANY cardigan tied around…

      The Thigh’s Not the Limit

      “Um, miss? So sorry to have to tell you this, but you seem to have tucked your skirt into your knickers by mistake: how embarrassing!” There is a point where “sexy” becomes “just plain uncomfortable/awkward looking”. We’d argue that this skirt has reached that point. If you disagree, however, and you…

      Crime of Fashion? Brose ‘Jill’ chiffon maxi skirt

      SUSPECT: Brose ‘Jill’ chiffon maxi skirt, $495 SPOTTED: Shopbop ACCUSED OF: Making its wearer look like a giant stuffed animal At first we thought this was a “plush” fabric. You know, like a teddy bear? In a skirt? But it’s not. No, it’s chiffon. Chiffon: that wonderful, floaty, feminine fabric….

      Plastic Fantastic? Marc Jacobs ruffled plastic skirt?

      Some might say that a £550 plastic skirt is always going to be a Crime of Fashion, regardless of what it actually looks like. Others might say that, why, this skirt is “avant-garde” (Yes, Net-a-Porter, we ARE looking at you) and therefor totes fashion-forward and automatically awesome. Plus, it was…

      Crime of Fashion: Rick Owens “mini” skirt

      When Rick Owens makes a skirt, it’s not like when other people make a skirt. And thank Science for that. (Seriously, coffee and doughnuts to the first person who can give us a plausible reason why they’d want to a) wear this and b) pay £610 for it. And no,…
