I fancy a denim skirt

I am 5'4 and a size 12.

Cannot be above knee length.

What length is good?
What style is fashionable? Or, even better, flattering?

Anyone seen any good ones recently? Where shall I look? What shall I look for?

why not above the knee? I am a size 10 and the same height, and on/below the knee makes me look really short and dumpy...

will have a look

Above knee length is good for the summer. I have one from Gap. I like it.
Why not above knees?

this is lovely i think

I live in a Muslim country. Have to be modest.

I do like that one gapants.

allhailtheaubergine Sun 05-Jun-11 19:23:31

Oh, but only available in size 6, 8 and 10.

gapants Sun 05-Jun-11 19:30:57

Right, gotcha...i think that midi length button through is lovely and would be nice with ballet flats, espadrilles or sandals.

Let me see if i can find another

gapants Sun 05-Jun-11 19:32:39

new look can be funny, I would be tempted to order the 10 and see how it fits. I am a 6 in Next and River Island. I am NOT a 6 in RL.

this is OK, bit dark

gapants Sun 05-Jun-11 19:46:06

i love this maybe too short if you are tall

gapants Sun 05-Jun-11 19:48:33

a page here with a few, but not sure of the lenghts

Thank you Gapants. Sorry - the children exploded last night and I never got back to the computer.

Like the Midi ones.

I'm going to have a look in Oasis.

Can't be anything too hot though - it's 40+ degrees here and getting hotter.

I have this one and I love it, wear it every day. It might be a bit short for what you are after. There is a longer version too here
