I am hoping to be shortlisted for an interview which will take place in three week's time. I am planning to wear a sharp trouser suit, either brown or charcoal, but have no suitable shirt. Any ideas for a really nice shirt or top, ideally off-white rather than white?

I am a size 12 with a small chest, good waist but a bit of tummy. Many thanks in advance.

I think with an interview it's good to play it safe (you can wear funky tops with a suit AFTER securing the job!). M&S do lots of plain, fairly inexpensive shirts and tops which would be suitable, including short sleeved ones.

Also, consider that it might be really hot on the day, you may want to take your jacket off so that you don't appear a sweaty mess (not suggesting you would!) so make sure it looks good without the jacket.

Thanks for the advice, I might pop in M&S and see what shirts/tops they have.
