They are short
They are chubby
They are covered in bruises from falling over toys etc.

Some well cut linen trousers.
I've seen a lovely linen long skirt in Per Una that has a great shape to it.

Nice white or cream linen wide leg trousers thrown on with a t-shirt always looks nice.

I have short legs like mp..I find though that long skirts make me look round..! God knows why..!!! I need something that shows my legs unfortunatly..!!

Another vote for linen trousers - both mine (cream and olive green) are from Gap in the sale. Get long ones and wear wedges underneath to make legs look longer. Agree long skirts can be difficult - I'm 5'8" and some make even me look short.

you could always wear some thin trousers with a summery dress over the top. actually, today ive got some linen trousers on with a dress over the top.

think wide legged loose trousers are the answer. High waisted. Oh, I know about short fat legs. Mine are also white as a fish's belly and I can't shave or dehair in any way without leaving attractive open pores. And I don't tan, I burn, am am allergic to fake tan. Bloody hell, I hate summer.

long skirts

I rejoiced last yr when gypsy skirts were in

also, cotton trousers - especially straight, wide cut that don't make your legs look huge
