I've got an event coming up where I'm one of the speakers. It's in London and I really need to look good - a hip and cool business person - so not a suit/corporate look iysim.

I'm not very good at putting outfits together, so I turn to you all to help me here:

Some info:

I need 2 day outfits and 1 for an evening - the evening won't be a formal do but I'd like to ring the changes from what I wear that day with a slight change.
I'm a devoted Clear Winter - so blacks, reds, fuschias, emeralds, turquoise etc - my neutrals are navy, grey, black, white
Curvy 16-18 and 5' 3"
Short body and huge norks
Like wrap dresses very much
May need coat - was thinking trench, single breast or Princess style
Will likely use my Zatchel [raspberry or Navy/cream for carting macbook about]
I like Hobbs, some Phase Eight, Jaeger, M&S sometimes, 40's/50's looks
Would like to budget up to £100 per outfit if poss!

This might be a good dress for when you're speaking

This might be nice for the evening event

OP - are they the sort of thing you would wear or are we way off the mark?
