I have been invited to an evening carol concert at St Pauls with my DH. He'll be representing his work and I have to look presentable. I have no idea what should be worn to such an event. I have this Zara coat which I think will look smart enough on the outside but it's what to put underneath that's the problem!
I'm 41, size 8-10, 5"4ish, mid-dark brown mousy ( boring ), growing out a short style hair ( crap in other words ) I have a wobbly tum so I hate anything clingy. Nothing belted around the waist or hem lines around there. They seem to accentuate everything about my midriff that I hate. I think I have alright legs and many moons ago when my mum had me get my colours done I was told I was mainly Autumn with some spring ( not that I've really taken much notice of that as such - but I do know that solid black should really be a no no )
I'm presuming a dress would be the right thing to wear?
I have skinny black trousers and a nice pair of black Chelsea boots - the top half I don't think I have anything smart enough. I'll have a google on jumpers and jumper dresses - although I'm not great with any type of itchy material.
I think they look like they'd be a bit clingy around the waist. That's why I thought the white company one looked quite good as it looked a little more slouchy around the waist but not ridiculously slouchy. I'm a bit odd with how things feel next to my skin. Anything that is really fitted around my torso, if jumpers feel snug or are even a little clingy then I'm forever pulling them away from my body - front, side or back. Thanks for the links though. I'm busy trawling
