Are we about to experience the return of the dreaded ra-ra skirt? I have seen a few popping up on the High Street and it is an obvious development of the ice-skating skirt which was all over the catwalk for Autumn/Winter '07-'08. However, it seems very difficult to make a ra-ra skirt actually look nice. I think I've seen one too many girls in velour hoodies, ra-ra skirts and Ugg boots to ever like this trend.

However, I have to admit to having a soft spot for the Laura Lees tree print ra-ra skirt as it combines two trends.
