I've decided to have a proper clear out of my wardrobe not just the usual shuffle around and really need to replace a lot for winter so I was wondering if anyone fancied a thread for a smart casual wardrobe? Links to clothing, ask questions, give suggestions?

If there's something like this already please point me there!
If not I'm happy to waffle away on my own! grin

Btw I know there's the vogue threads but this is more of a h&m thread winkgrin

Great idea - my office is smart casual and I never feel I get it right. I'm either too corporate or too scruffy. Sadly, this means I have nothing to offer the thread.

Snowy- that's the point, this thread can be where you get ideas!
Dancing- where do you get your jersey blazers from?

h&m jumper

First time attempting link so bear with me...

This h&m jumper is only £7.99! It's a good length, medium weight and lovely colours plus there's 25% off any item at the minute.

Uniqlo have some lovely merino v necked jumpers in lots of colours, at £30, they also have some skinny jeans. I haven't bought anything from there before, but when I get some pennies I am going to give them a whirl.

Has anybody got any recommendations for nice jumper dresses?

Ooh yes I'm after jumper dresses too please and nice cami tops. Tried a lovely one on in tesco but was far too clingy. Would like a fat tummy skimming one!

bloody H&M- could do with some of those jumpers, but their sizes are 10-12 and 14-16, and ...........i'm 12-14 ??

H&m sizes can be ridiculous, I've got an xs jumper and size 12 jeggings but can't fit in their size 16 trousers?! confused
You need to try it all on don't you?

What about this one? 20% off at checkout and I'm pretty sure there's a free p&p too

The vogue thread isn't all high end stuff. I'm a high st girl. The main thing is that we get inspiration from each other, swap ideas etc. come and join us smile

I really like that Dorothy Perkins one, just a pity there doesn't seem to be any wool in it.
