I'm short but want some short skirts for summer and on holiday. Only casual ones though. So I don't have long legs obviously.... but Iv noticed some lengths look awful and make my thighs look chubby....

So if I want a short skirt do I have to stick to knee length?! Iv heard different people should have skirts finish at certain lengths on their legs.... e.g. 1 inch above knee etc so is there any 'ideal' length? I'm an 8-10 so I'm not 'round' just small!!

I'd say mid thigh or a couple of inches above knee if you want short summer skirts that flatter. Topshop skirts can be short especially if you try their petite range. Normal range mini skirts are often too mini on me at 5ft 6 unless I want to flash my arse which I don't but might be good for your height.

Thanks! I don't want to flash my arse no! Ok so maybe 2 inch above knee? What sort of style would look best? Iv seen a line, tiered and sort of just 'loose'?
