Always loved that statement , dress for the job you want. My boss would fire me on the spot if i showed up in my beach garb! Yes the job i want is to be on a nice tropical island.... Doing absolutely nothing to make someone else richer👍
Now to answer on the inquiry of skirt length. One inch below your hands positioned at sides. That is highest it can go . You can have longer bohemian skirts to 3/4 quarter length as well. Veer from wiggle skirts. Same too with the tube skirt.....

you don't want to look sexy at all, you never know whose toes you might tread on if you look like competition, I think a mini gets men interested

There is no dress code at my new work place, but I still want to make more of an effort. Should a skirt be at least up to the knee level? If it helps, it's a large research institute so not a university and I won't be doing any teaching, just 100% research.
Though short skirts, black leggings and boots are very sexy and hot, not for work, not if you want to make a good impression. I'd say knee level or less and try not to show any cleavage for a while.

Ex gf loved to wear short skirts to work, where I could see her panties when seated, not porfessional at all IMHO.

We can wear whatever we want at my job, too. I'm in management so I chose to still dress business casual. Nice Khakis and a button down shirt, pressed. I won't wear my tight jeans or form fitting shirts, like I do on the weekends. Doesn't feel appropriate. My team wears jeans and t-shirts though.

I was kind of talking about this Saturday night with my good female friend, who is petitie and a little chesty. She said she tries not to show cleavage at work, but some of her outfits do show a bit, and, if she feels inappropriate she will wear a jacket or sweater overtop and once in her office, door closed, take it off. She came directly from work when I met her out Friday night, and her breasts were definitely "popping" but she had a blazer on.

I have never had less respect or people talking about me due to the way I dress. And it includes mini skirts and cleavagy tops (though not usually at the same time!)
I do, however, work in the entertainment industry, so things are possibly more casual than other industries...

It was also not uncommon to be wearing a bikini under my clothes in the summer...
