Lost all sense of style

I need a good kick up the arse style wise. I had my ds 8 months ago, and am currently a stone off fitting into my jeans, and 2 stone from my 'I can deal with this' weight, 3 stone off my lightest. I might have a touch of the old Rose tinted glasses, but whilst I know I'm overweight, I don't feel I look terrible, just not particularly wonderful either.

I have no idea how to dress at the moment. I've started back at sw, last time I did it I lost my 3 stone in 3 months. Not kidding myself it'll happen now due to various Factors, not least of which I am no longer 19!

Anyway, I refuse to buy new jeans at the moment as I'm hoping I'll be back in mine soon, but I need to buy something that doesn't make me feel like crap. DH and I are going away for a night next week and I want to look/feel nice.

At the moment, I exclusively wear leggings, long vest tops which I can pull down to pop a boob, and cardis.

Boobs are ridiculous, 32hh, I'm 5'8, probably a 16ish all over, hourglass ish. Have tried those pleated chiffon skirt things and I look like a boat sailing down the Clyde.

Suggestions for smart casual and hopefully not too expensive would be vastly appreciated. I have lost all sense of style. sad I have lots planned for when I can hoik my boobs into my tops, and can rebutton my jeans without spanx and a muffin top, but cannot deal with frumpiness until then.

Wrap dresses are generally great for bigger boobs aren't they?

Wrap dress?

Is this for normal clothing or for your night out with your H?

A bit of both, melted. I would like something for everyday, but which I can also wear for a smart/casual night out. Shall have a look at the dresses, thanks!
