If your late 30's where do you shop, i don't seem to fit in anywhere
I'm 40 and do still seem to carry off shortish skirts so not sure if this will be much help but my go to shops are Zara, TopShop ( yes I know but look beyond the garish stuff and there are some brilliant directional finds), H&M, Urban Outfitters, and if at a loss just go to A department store and look at all the concessions, stores change sometimes and can surprise you. Warehouse, that I used to love for example, has gone seriously downhill.
LardLizard it's frustrating, isn't it? But putting a dart here and there and taking up a hem just became second nature to me (i'm 5ft4 and 'plumpish' ) and would rather wear things that suit and fit me than fashion.
* having said that, i draw the line at wolf fleeces and Saltwater sandals!
I don't know if this is age related but it is shape related. When I was young I was always stick thin, no hips or boobs. Then mid 30's my shape morphed into something more hourglass and the shops I used to enjoy I no longer suited. Took me AGES to work out what to wear. Good luck op!
