Help! What to wear for interview??

I have a job interview next week and have absolutely zero idea of what to wear. I have been trawling website after website and still don't have a clue.

None of my pre-baby workwear fits me sad

I'm a size 18 up top and probably an 18/20 bottom depending on the garment (I.e. Stretchy skirts I can get away with smaller sizes but trousers with no stretch need to be larger)

I have a big, gloopy post-baby tummy (is it still post baby 7 months down the line confused) and I would like to hide it as much as possible without resorting to tenting!! I still have a pretty decent waist but my arms are gross so something with sleeves.

Bah, somebody please help me. I'm hopeless at this kind of thing!!!

What field is the job in?

What's your budget?

Job is recruitment consultant - so aware that I need to come across as professional, well turned out, but want to inject a bit of personality into it.

Budget - ideally £50 max providing it's something I can get multiple wears out of!

I think a navy blue pair of trousers and smart blouse. Black is too formal and dull. I think a trawl through M and S would give you some positive ideas. A geometric pattern top would be fine or florals. Don't get roll up sleeve type shirts - look for something more classic. I like tops that are not shirts and only open part of the way down the front but are long enough to cover your tummy (and mine!). You should be able to get something for £50.

How about a matching 2 piece like this?
