I know this is not much of an answer, but I like both.

LOL, you know you are a tall girl when you can't figure out whether something is a dress or a top.

But for us tall girls, t-shirt and sweater dresses make great tunics 😃

I’m just going to add, I’ve online ordered 2 dresses & 3 skirts.  When they’re delivered, and I’ve tried them on / worn them for a day or so, I’ll add my comments.

All of my length is in my torso, my legs are what makes me short. I have several that I cannot decide if they are a short dress, or a long top. And to compound things, some of my tunic tops are longer that some of my shortest skirts!

I'm average height and still come across garments that I can't figure out if they're meant to be a top or a dress though! Similar to Jin, my body is a lot more torso than legs too. But I think the main issue is simply not understanding what the manufacturers of certain clothes were thinking! I do most of my shopping at thrift stores, and I can definitely say that sometimes when I pick up something interesting on a clothing rack... I don't know what it is! But that's when I can get more creative too. Wear it as a dress sometimes, and as a top other times? Then you have some extra variety. Also some types of dresses can be worn as skirts and vice versa.

It really depends on the situation because sometimes skirt is more appropriate than a dress and sometimes a dress is more appropriate than the start but I do like skirts a lot better or a short dress

A nice A-line skirt can look wonderful.  Their flexibility with a variey of tops is good too.

I love jeans! With the right shoes and top, you can dress them up or down.
My knees are always cold, so I like keeping them covered with some snug pants!
Stay in the light and focus on realizing the life you want to see!

The continuing story of my new life!
