I would go for a really chunky navy wool jumper, this sort of look but with full sleeves! It makes it a bit more fashionable.

moonstorm I was going to link to that jumper too, great minds and all that!

chunky? with tailored trews or pencil skirt?

BreakOutTheKaraoke Sun 23-Sep-12 20:17:41

Tailored trousers, definately. Could work with pencil skirt, but I have a really cute outfit in my head of 7/8 trousers, slim fitting, shirt and an arran type jumper over the top.

Imagine this sort of look in blues.

I like those chunky knits but I wonder if they'd make any one with a decent set of norks look a bit upholstered.

To be honest, I'm flat as a pancake so have no idea for people with great boobs!
