Bought a black leather skirt on a whim.
It's flat waisted, fitted to below the bum then has a peplum type panel taking the length to just above knee.
Very flattering on, would like to wear it to a casual evening event - friends married abroad and having a bash now they're back.
I'm thinking black opaque tights, black shoe boot type heels but what to wear on top?
I'm 42, 5'6", size 10 but large of boobage and hate my upper arms!
Can anyone please help, I've got a week.

Pretty silk shirt?

silk top?

Or a plain drape neck top in a silky fabric?

Was thinking silky fitted pussy bow type blouse but not sure if I'll look a bit too sexy secretary or like part of the catering team?

A tight black turtleneck tucked into the skirt, like this one (I like extra long tops for putting under skirts to avoid ruffling/bulging of fabric around the waist) https://www.polyvore.com/fittedblackk_turtleneck/shop?query=fitted+black+turtleneck

With a big white or brown belt (https://www.maykool.com/belts-vintage-faux-leather-carved-stretch-wide-belt-014586.html?currency=USD&gclid=COLd0KLU3c8CFQaUaQodDRMIRgg__)

An interesting necklace (_https://www.etsy.com/listing/470005306/czech-glass-and-antique-brass-necklace?utmm_source=google&utmmedium=cpc&utmm_campaign=shoppinguss_c-jewelry-necklaces-beadednecklaces&utmm_custom1=286da42c-e820-4a5c-b870-1950a1879c0f&gclid=CJ-wg-HU3c8CFRAtaQodn2UCsA)

Black tights.

Black or tan boots depending on if you have the brown or white belt (http://m.gojane.com/119436.html?SIZE=7&id=119436-black&gclid=CIK55o7V3c8CFQcvaQodRA4PZQ)

Jumper?

T shirt

I have a black leather pencil skirt. Something a bit more relaxed to get away from a sexy bondage secretary kardashian look I reckon. A nice t shirt, denim shirt, trainers?
