I have bought this skirt, and it is gorgeous. V flattering and looks fab with my brown high heeled boots, but what sort of top? I was thinking a fine knit beige/oatmeal polo neck, but that might be a bit preppy, I also have quite big norks.

Advice please!

Depends on your colouring, and if you want a jumper or top, maybe something like this:
uniqlo jumper

nice gap top

gap cowl neck

for a night out with heels?

Thank you, I can't do cowl necks, nothing that draws attention to my deformed collar bone. I have pale olive skin and auburn hair, pics on my profile.

A beige or oatmeal polo neck would be truly dreadful with big norks, sorry.

What about a fairly slim fitting v neck cashmere jumper? M&S usually have a range of colours.

Not sure about v neck tbh, I have a v knobbly ribcage that needs covering over.

How about a boat neck?

How high are your ribs?!!!!!

Boat neck or slash neck could work - but harder to find.

What about this?

OracleInaCoracle Sat 17-Sep-11 19:09:21

ribs are v swollen, i have a condition that causes the joints to swell between ribs and sternum, theres a pic on my profile where you can see a clear bump. now all my ribs look like that. it is not attractive.

i love that. maybe a bit pricey though, £30 is as high as i can go.

There are 20% off codes around if that helps

Oooh, maybe then. I need to be able to wear it day to day. I don't go out often at all.
