so Im a 6ft tall girl and I am having loads of trouble finding skirts. Most skirts are way too short for me and I feel really self-conscious wearing them.

Does anyone know where I can buy longer short skirts (like longer skater skirts or mini skirts) which will fit my height and not be really expensive? The 'tall' section at Topshop is disgusting and overpriced, the tall section at Asos only has long floor length skirts and everywhere else the skirts seem to be way too shirt.

You could try Long Tall Sally but their skirts are really overpriced for what they are and I find their sizing is often really weird. I'm 6'1" and I buy most of my skirts in vintage shops (same with playsuits and tbh most of my other clothes). Anthropologie have some nice skirts too, but they are quite pricey unless you can snag a bargain in the sales - I got a really nice mini-skirt in there a few years ago though, and still wear it now - the quality is pretty good. It's trousers I have trouble with - Topshop's are THE WORST for fit!

I buy a lot from charity shops - the vintage shops I've been to aren't really 'cutesy boutique stores'; just places that sell clothing that ranges from the 50s-90s! If you can sew, you can shorten longer skirts often with good results if you're wanting a shorter skirt! Urban Outfitters also sometimes has some good stuff too (I always buy in the sale there because full price the stuff is way too expensive)! You could try ASOS Marketplace as well which has a lot of choice and often is more affordable! Long Tall Sally did have a range called 'TTYA' as well which had a couple of skirts, but I don't know if it's still around (and it was probably expensive). Being tall is such a nightmare sometimes!

Boohoo! The skirts and maxi dresses are trendy, stylish and are great value for money.

I think you must try to buy clothes from high street stores who are having a great range of clothes for tall girl.
