1. Try static guard spray.
2. Try wiping a fabric softener sheet over the inside of the skirt, or tumble the skirt in the dryer with a sheet.
3. Try wearing cotton bike style shorts as a slip. They come to mid thigh on me, and I'm 5'6".  I buy them at megamart type stores in the workout clothes dept.  I have about 6 pairs in various colors, and wear them year round.

What a unique idea.  How about a spaghetti strap sundress in a  blue matching/blending solid color, or a print with the blue and (looks like) cream color, with cream lace(as close to the shoes as you can find) around the bodice top and a band/border at the hem.

Another possibility would be a solid or blue print dress with a lace shrug or jacket.

Or how about a solid/print skirt with a lace top underlined with the solid/print? This could be all one piece, or two pieces. Whatever you decide, post the results when finished.

Could you use the ribbed tops of socks as your trim?  Socks are available in almost any color, so you could coordinate or contrast with the main color of the hoodie. And they areavailable pretty cheaply.  One pair would do your cuffs.  Measure the width of the sock top and double it to see how many socks would be needed to do the bottom.

You can also use regular material, but sew it with elastic thread to help with fit and stetching of the material.
