Help me wise ones of style and beauty... After a hiatus of many months, I am finally going to have a night out next weekend! I am v excited but honestly, I'm so stressed about what to wear. What do people wear to go out out these days?
I'm 5'11 and size 10-12. Back in the good old days, I just used to get my legs out and I felt good to go! Now that I've hit 40 I don't think miniskirts are the way to go. I don't have any boobs. Have good arms and nice if slightly scrawny shoulders.
Has anyone seen anything nice to make me feel good? Am happy to buy new, so if anyone's seen anything in the shops/ online lately, Id love some links. Please help!
How about leather leggings and a fab pop of colour top (pink/red/blue)? River Island, Next or Karen Millen may be good places to start. Was at a Marie Claire event last week and all the presenters seemed to be in leather leggings.
