Casual knee length-ish skirts

Any ideas where I can find some skirts? I'd like them to be casual, about knee length (I'm 5'8), not pleated, big patterns or clingy as I'm a hefty size 16 these days.

Has anyone bought anything recently that may fit this description? I'm tempted to try making some but I don't know where to start.

PeopleTree?

Boden. I have been looking for similar ish and they have a few. White stuff/fat face too.

I find ASOS really good for casual skirts. I'm 5'9" and a 16/18. Both their Tall and Curve ranges serve me well.

Thank you. I've ordered a couple from asos and one from people tree. The Boden ones I found are too patterned for me or too clingy.

Any more skirt ideas?

The linen skirts from Next are nice, I'm 5'7 and they're just above my knees. They have patterned and plain.

I have this in a blue, the waistband is smocking so prettier than plain elastic. I bought a couple of blue t-shirts to go with it

Do the next ones come in tall?

Do you have a pic goose?

Fat Face. They do some really flattering casual styles that sit on the hips and are loose to the knee, so they don't swamp you but don't cling unflatteringly either. I don't like all of their prints, but some are very subtle and pretty. Personally I avoid anything with an elasticated waist and go for the ones with wide waist bands as they are more flattering on me. Some will be too short for you at 5'8", but they do do longer lengths as well. Ebay also has a good supply from past seasons, including lots BWNT.

Do occasionally find something nice in White Stuff too, but I find they have a talent for making their skirts look much frumpier and droopier than the FF variety. It's something to do with the cut.

The Next skirts do come in tall but they sell out fast.

Saw these in M & S today and was tempted, was just below knee on me and we're a similar height
