I already work one day a week at my DH's company where you can wear what you want (usually jeans and a smart jumper at the moment). I am about to start working for a much more formal company for another one day a week and have no idea what to wear. I've always worked at quite casual places where smart jeans sufficed. Now I need to up my workwear game... I'm 5'5 and about 10.5 stone, 10/12 on top and 12/14 on bottom with a small waist, big bum and thighs. Two children have changed my shape a lot and I no longer know how to look smart! HELP ME...
I work in London and although we have a 'Business Dress' policy so men have to wear suits, most women wear dresses and jackets or non-suit skirt/trousers and jackets.... statement jackets are in (i.e. bright colours or tweed). Next is a great place to start for reasonably priced work wear. Wallis also hve suitable dresses and always seem to have sales on
A well fitting dress and a jacket is a good start. The two don't need to be part of a set, as long as they go and are well cut. I used to get dresses from Marks and Spencers, and jackets from a range of places.
Do you think I could wear a stretchy pencil skirt and plain jumper? Does that sound smart enough? God, I'm clueless... Think I'll be the only woman in the office so in a way I guess I can forge my own path a little
