The Service Dress White Skirt is worn by Female Navy Officers and Chief Petty Officers with the Service Dress White, Dinner Dress White, and Dinner Dress White Uniforms. It is also authorized for wear by Female Coast Guard Officers when wearing the Coast Guard versions of those uniforms, as well as with the Coast Guard Dinner Dress White Jacket Uniform. The only one of the three Coast Guard uniforms authorized for wear by Enlisted personnel is the Dinner Dress White: it is mandatory for Gold Badge Command Chiefs and the MCPOCG (Master Chief Petty Officer of the Coast Guard) and an optional purchase for all other Enlisted Guardsmen. For female Coast Guard Auxiliarists, the skirt is an optional-wear item with the Service Dress White Uniform. USPHS Officers follow U.S. Navy regulations (see hemline below) and wear it with uniforms of the same name as in the Navy.

The Service Dress White Skirt is an unbelted, six-gored skirt made with white, authorized Certified Navy Twill fabric and a waistband pocket in the upper right front. Navy regulations mandate the wear of flesh-tone hosiery with the Skirt and limit its wear on board ships only while immediately  departing or returning to the vessel. In the Coast Guard, white pumps and hosiery are mandatory wear items with the Skirt.

While both the Navy and Coast Guard call for at least a two-inch hem for the Skirt (USCG regs state two to three inches for the hem), the length varies between the services: Navy skirts can fall between 1.5 inches above to 1.5 inches below the crease behind the knee, while USCG rules say the hemline can fall anywhere between the crease in the back of the knee and three inches below the crease.
