After 12 years working from home and having two kids I have an interview to return to work as a solicitor, which is great. However, I need something to wear as my lovely little suits from Hobbs, LK Bennett etc sadly no longer fit sad. The firm is in a small town so power suits and high heels are not required (not even sure if people still wear such things, but we used to in London), but I do need something smart - maybe a dress? I'm a size 14 with biggish boobs blush.

Any ideas where I should start my search? Thanks flowers

Why not buy a new suit or dress from Hobbs, from their online shop? I've done that.

I would always err on the side of caution for an interview. I think maybe a dress with a jacket or trousers with a jacket rather than a suit?

Linea at House of Fraser is good as well as Hobbs.

I'm in media, so this may be a tad too casual for other industries, but i am practising tidy links

I moved from v corporate London to a small town. Instead of sharp suits with shirts/cuffkinks I wear jersey dresses and a smart jacket. Hobbs, jaegar outlet, East, smarter end white stuff.

I do have a vvv smart suit for a particular regular mtg but feel overdressed tbh - old habits die hard!

I work in corporate in London and have never worn a suit. I usually wear a long sleeve dress (Hobbs, John Lewis, or Reiss), opaque tights, and low heels. Accessorize with a pearl and silver watch to match my wedding ring and earrings.
