Dressing an houglass shape with big tummy

Looking for work/going out ideas while I lose some weight.

I'm an hourglass, petite figure
28H bust
Size 12 right now but trying to get back down to an 8-10 with a flat tummy
In the meantime, I'm fairly well proportioned all over but carry all the weight on my front - a round pot belly
I've never ben quite this big before so don't have a wardrobe of clothes designed to hide the tummy and all the clothes I used to go for, mostly dresses look ridiculous, if anything they accentuate my silly tummy

Obviously the best thing is to lose weight, but ideas in the meantime?
I do a semi-corporate job 4 days a week and tend to wear a dress of some sort
Then need one or two things to go out in
Don't much care about really casual occasions as have some baggy jumpers and things at home

It's the smart-casual category of clothing that is challenging
Had a look in Pepperberry but not really my style
I'm mid-30s but look youngish for my age
