Hi all,
I'm going out for dinner with the girls on Friday and I'll probably wear either black or dark blue skinny jeans with heals and either a leather jacket or a blazer. I need a top to go with it - trouble is I'm feeling a bit on the porky side at the moment and I'd usually wear a longline t-shirt or something with an outfit like this but I need something less clingy.

Can you please suggest some tops? I've got very limited shopping time so hight street would be best/

Oh I'm a summer as well if that helsp with colours - perhaps something pink or beige? And a size 10 pear shape - need to hide tummy / love handles and perhaps my bottom too!

I am a pear shape too and just bought this. Honestly it is soooo flattering. Makes your waist look tiny and balances out a pair shape with the slightly puffy arms. The skirt skims so hides your bum too. I am wearing mine on Saturday with leggings and boots. I tried it on with skinny jeans and it looked great too.

You are a size 10! How can you be looking porky? Not possible smile

thabnks angry - that's going on the reserve list. it's more like a dress / tunic than a top and also was thinking about wearing animal print shoes so would have to have a bit of a outfit re-think. Thanks though - it's a good start.

This looks lovely with dark jeans

This is definitely a summer colour.
This and
this are longer and would cover the alleged porkiness...

sad I brought the next top in red yesterday (they only had red) but the shape is no good, too baggy round the middle but too tight around the bottom.

I quite like the DP stuff - will head there at lunchtime and hope my small local store has something in.
