What do fashionable ladies in their late thirties wear on a night out on the town with the girls. I live in a remote town in Ireland and don't get out that much. I am visiting friends in England this week, and they have arranged a girlie night out on saturday night. I need some help on deciding what to wear,any ideas gratefully accepted. I am 5 foot 5 size 12/14 and a pear shape i think.

Skinny jeans, heels and a nice top? French connection has a good sale on?

Have nice jeans and heels. What kind of top do you think longish?

Geordieminx Mon 18-Jul-11 21:32:15

Thanks for the looks Geordieminx. Prefer the second one, not really a blouse person. Would black skinnies look o.k at this time of the year?

Geordieminx Mon 18-Jul-11 21:41:55

I wear this with nude heels skinnies and dangly earrings

irishmama Mon 18-Jul-11 21:42:13

Do not worry about size of cannot see therefore it does not exist grin

Agree. First is too casual.

Ruffle top is tres flattering!

irishmama Mon 18-Jul-11 21:46:42

Would you wear that with jeans or leggings or on it's own? Are leggings and long tops still in fashion at the moment?

irishmama Mon 18-Jul-11 21:50:49

Am coming over tommorow. Am going to try and find a top to wear. There is a very big shopping centre very close buy to where i am staying.

Depending on length, your legs and the weather then yes could be worn on it's own.
