Skirt to go with my Majorca Villa boots?

So I bought a pair of the Majorca Villa boots in grey (link here) thanks to the Mumsnet loves email...
I've never been much of a leggings person because I never know what to wear on top and don't want to accidentally show the world a camel toe, but I can wear them with skinny jeans. But I'd also quite like to wear them with a skirt. Have done a quick look online, but can't find many around. Needs to be casual. Can anyone guide me as to what style of skirt might go? And where I can find one?

A-line tunic dress and leggings ( tunic dress at least to top of thighs so no camels).
Short cord or velvet skirt and tights. Straight or A-line depending on your shape.
Depends on your legs really. I am short and any skirt below the kneecap looks grim, due to sturdy calves, but at my age I am too old for bare legs grin.
Boots, tights and short dress/tunic is very comfy and avoids that 80s leggings and flappy t-shirt thing.

Thanks, I shall have a look for a cord skirt, that sounds good. I'm 5'4", fairly hourglass shape I suppose.
I like the thought of a tunic with leggings - problem is that I'm breastfeeding and so don't like the thought of hoiking everything up to provide access.

I have those boots, they're lush! I've worn them with a short denim mini and opaques.

Mini skirt. Cord or denim

I hate tunics. Avoid tunics.
