As I've been paying much more attention to this, I've seen the ratio of shirt height to skirt length flipped on occasion
A ready made look for you?

I recall an online article I came across regarding women's tunics. It seems that these may be worn as mini-dresses, but may worn over shorts/trousers, or skirts. Conceivably, someone might substitute a tunic for a traditional jacket, worn over skirt and dress shirt.

I have a tunic-length sweater that I wear over jeans. On a shorter person it could be a dress, but on me worn that way would be scandalous. I feel like it's my "stealth skirt", but sadly that's only in my head. I doubt others see it as that.

I was thinking of a tunic over a skirt of at least knee length.

I was trying to think outside the box. Well, actually, two boxes, women's skirt suits, and traditional mens (trouser) suits.

When you say tunic - are you referring to a button up (like a cardigan) or something you have to pull over your head?

And yeah, I really wish the sweater was just a bit longer. I’m going to try wearing it one day with fleece-lined skinny jeans to see how it works, perhaps a pair of leggings.

A sort of dress like garment that you may very well pull over your head.

Think Little Black Dress but in different colours. Can be long or short sleeved.
I believe in offering every assistance short of actual help but then mainly just want to be left to be myself in all my difference and uniqueness.

Of course, one could flip the ratio again and combine a short jacket with a longer skirt.
