I have an big work meeting on Monday, it's a big deal for me. I wear workwear all week but not super smart workwear however for this meeting I need to dress up a bit.

Ordinarily I wear a stretchy pencil skirt (multiple colours) with an array of tops and a waterfall style cardigan. This covers my belly after having DD and the excess weight I'd love to lose.

However I have nothing to wear for Monday and really need some help.

I'm stuck on style. Pencil skirts that aren't stretchy don't tend to fit well. Shift dresses are the same.

I prefer skater style dresses and skirts simply because they can hide my flabby tummy but I'm 6"1' tall and usually get from Next however their range is utter horse poo now and I can't find anything.

I'm 6"1', size 16 top and 18 bottom. I'm probably hourglass in shape.

In my head I'm thinking nice black skater dress with a bright(er) jacket, skin coloured tights and black heels. In reality I bet this doesn't happen but I want to make an effort.

Anyone suggest anything that might suit me??
