I have just gone through my wardrobe and am bored. It's time to buy some new a/w clothes but I'm stuck.
I'm 6 feet tall, size 16 top (34e) and a 12- 14 bottom...have been going to the gym so am nearer a 12. I have very long legs...35ins. In winter I tend to wear tunics, skinny jeans, leggings with fitted boots, but fancy throwing caution to the wind a bit. I haven't worn a skirt or dress for about 15 years...but I have good legs. I fancy some brogues..have found some nice ones in a 9
Part of my job is doing presentations /workshops in schools so nothing too smart necessary. What can I wear that won't make me look mutton dressed as lamb?
I'm a couple of years older than you. I used to live in skinny jeans (even at work), but have recently attempted to smarten up a bit. I'm a completely different shape though - 5 foot 6 & size 12/14.
I now wear: Good quality very slim leg trousers - either full or 7/8 length. Good quality short jackets - Kaliko, Alex & Co or suchlike. Good quality flat pumps or decent boots. Fine knit snug fitting long t-shirts, longer than my jacket. Dottie P do decent long t-shirts. I also bought a couple of nice cardigans (Barbara Speer) to jazz things up a bit.
I sometimes wear a longish skirt but I just can't get on with dresses - whether loose or fitted they just make me look like a sack of spuds
Thanks everyone...I am a Mint Velvet fan, and love grey I really struggle with LTS...it always looks better in the catalogue than it really is. Quality leaves a lot to be desired. I'm in Chiltern ST next week so will pop in, and also go to Crispins and buy some brogues. And I am planning a day at Westfield when the dcs go back.
