I have lost weight. Need help with dressing my top half for A/W 2015

I have lost 3.5 stone. At my previous weight I shopped in Next a lot just because they had my size which was a 20.

Sadly, I am continuing to look there because it is easy but also starting to make mistakes. I am now a 12/14 depending on what I buy but I have already wasted money over the summer buying rubbish from there that I really want to get stuff for autumn and winter right going forward.

I am so used to covering myself up with big jumpers and cardigans. I don't want anything tight but I do want to look lovely.

I am 45. 5'7 and as I said a 12/14. I have dark brown hair. I have jeans and boots galore and know what I like on the bottom half. Its my top half I never seem to get right.

I do have fairly big boobs so tops can't be too highly cut.

I really want three of four top half outfits for evenings and weekends. Can you help? I don't suit black so focusing on grey and navy but not sure about other colours.
