please help me, I need a decent pair of leggings,some skinny jeans in dark blue and black, some nice easy to wear dresses/tunics that can be worn now and in spring, and a couple of cardis. I am 5'8" and size 16.

Have you tried La redoute? They have a big sale on at the moment and I have found them really good for tunics and cardis. V cheap in the sale too!

Im 5'7" and a 16 so similar. Whats your budget like? I think Wrap make the best ever tunics but they're not the cheapest. Everything Ive bought has been excellent quality and lasted years I like this or this

Also love Mint Velvet for tunics and knitwear I have bought 4 or 5 things recently and everyone ask where they are from. Good sale on at the moment too!

Im still searching for the holy grail leggings but find M&S ones pretty good for about £8 a pair. For jeans I cant see past Gap, I like their Really Straight which are almost skinnies(slim enough to tuck into boots) but dont cut off your circulation! Enjoy spending!
