Need some styling advice. I'm heading to London and need to look half decent. My usual work wear involves boots and jeans but I need to smarten up.
I've bought a pair of tapered black trousers from marks but I have no idea what to wear on my big clodhoppers feet (size 8). I'm think ankle boots or loafers. Plus what do I wear up top? I'm size 18 and tall 5ft 9in so need the top to cover my tummy.
I usually wear water proof jacket to work but bought this red coat at Christmas for a winter wedding.
Great coat. How about a long silk tank (you can often get them with a jersey back) with a shorter jacket (not black to match the trousers, go for grey or tweed with a round neck or a princess collar) over the top? Good tum disguise.
Yes to the ankle boots, with a small heel. Plain flat boots can make your feet look bigger and clumpy. I am also the owner of size 8s so I speak from knowledge.
Bag: look in Karen Millen. They usually get bags right.
I'm not a fan of blanket scarves personally, but you are at least tall enough to carry one off! I'd choose plain grey or navy with a red coat.
