Help needed with interview outfit

(5 Posts)

I have been invited to an interview next week. The problem is that I have recently lost a fair bit of weight and all my smart business clothes are now hanging off me.
It's an internal role and the usual dress code is smart casual so I ordinarily wear black trousers and tops.
I was thinking maybe a skirt and top or a dress but haven't worn one for years blush Any ideas for an outfit that's not too expensive (under £100) that I could wear again afterwards would be great.I have black mid heel shoes and can get black opaque tights. I am 5ft 2 and about size14. Thanks smile

I would buy a black dress... maybe with half sleeves, dress it up for interview, add a cardi for work afterwards

Both m+s and hobbs sale or outlet (online - deliver to store) woukd be good places to look

And maybe price getting something you own taken in at dry cleaner?

Thanks for those,you've given me some ideas now. I am in a big city so have access to most retail stores.
