Need a good slightly a-line black skirt. Help!

Hello. I've got loads of nice tops that are crying out to be worn with a black pencil skirt for work. But I've got a slim waist (until you get round to my tummy) and biggish hips/bottom. And quite chunky thighs. And shortish legs. I'm a size 12. So I feel a slightly a-line skirt suits me better. Any recommendations for such a thing? Or flattering, not too tight, pencil skirts? Thank you!

Look at Nicola Quilter who does some great - mainly black- a line skirts in different lengths.

They're all decorated and embroidered around the bottom - so not very plain, but they're a reasonable price.

Thanks! I'll have a look.... just looked and they do a plain black one. I also like the horse racing one! Thanks for the tip. I will give them a go. Maybe slightly too Aline if I'm being fussy but I'll see what it's like on. Thanks! I knew I'd get some good advice!
