Yay - A family member is treating us to a weeks holiday in the sun smile
The problem is that I practically live in jeans and would like to wear a skirt or two on holiday to get some sun to my legs. I am 5ft 2" and a size 16-18 with a small budget.

Can anyone recommend any lightweight, fairly cheap calf length skirts that can maybe go with a few different colour tops? Any advice would be much appreciated as I don't know where to look really. Thanks

I tend to always just wear dresses

No idea what the fit will be like but I've just ordered this as I see it being quite a versatile little skirt:

(and I also ordered these:

I would reconsider calf length skirts!They are the most unflattering length going,even more so if short.Even more again if over a certain size.They will make you look shorter and rounder.Unless you have fab calves with them being slimmest part of your leg they aren't flattering on legs either.

Go for something a teency bit shorter-up to knee,then you will get Sun on your legs rather than ankles and will look and feel better no doubt.

That said,skirts seem to be a bit hit and miss this year and I haven't seen many great ones around yet.

I bought a knee length skater dress in soft jersey from Dorothy pPerkins for about �20. That would be perfect to take on holiday as it will roll up small in your suitcase & you don't need to pack a top.

Another one for dresses.. Much easier as it's a whole outfit sorted in one garment.

I always struggle to match tops to skirts too..

H&m have some nice dresses at the mo, as do gap and they have money off some of them on their website ..
