This is a dilemma: an interesting design, a pear-shaped body type, love of experimenting, constraints of "what is acceptable to wear locally". I give you Karl Lagerfeld's mini skirt:
I found an article on that K.L. collections on Style.com , I personally don't like this white jacket- it looks shapeless to me, I much prefer this one, longer, but with the same idea of the "lapel-ed" front hem
but if I was to spend some time with my sewing machine, my favourite and more practicle look is this one:
the skirt in white, a white high neck blouse/top and a sleek black jacket. Maybe this is it?
