What would you wear for a school reunion, lunch then drinks? We left 23 years ago. Reunion is In late feb. Want to look like I've still got it, but elegant and sophisticatedwink

I'm size 14 and apple shaped! Quite thin legs but not good enough for anything above the knee, arm coverage would be good!

How about a Hush dress with knee-length boots?

I wouldnt recommend that Hush if you are apple shaped (well, It didnt look good on me) How about this dress? with leggings and boots .

Then good shiny hair , understated make up,nails and jewellery , nice bag ,

jacket like this?

Or this coat?, nicer I think!

Was thinking of this top:
Not sure on trousers though. Skirt/dress better choice?

Hmmm think I'm gonna order that dress. Only £50 in sale!

Any other suggestions anyone?

Your favourite jeans, heels or heeled ankle boots, tailored white shirt or slouchy 3/4 length sleeve top in navy/grey/black or white T and blazer (whichever is more flattering on you) and good hair/make-up/nails/jewellery.

Dress up too much = trying too hard.
