I need some help. I need a dress and a hat etc. I am in an enclosure so the rules apply on length and straps. I am having no joy at all. I hate prints on me and the look I am going for is more cool and sleek. I am 5 foot 4 and 45. Whenever I look for anything it's all flippin florals and wedding style stuff which I hate.

Any suggestions?

What enclosure are you in? Not all of them are the same.

Anne. So hats, knee length and inch or wider shoulder straps. I really want a beautiful modern structured dress which I can use again and pimp it up with a crazy hat? Blimey I don't know I just know what I don't like and all the bloody floral dresses and nothing cool

French connection and John Lewis choices here? Obviously don't know your budget, but maybe some inspiration

Thanks home love the Reiss one!
Bumble thanks for the recommendation of the fold. Never heard of them and they have some lovely dresses.

I love vicarious shopping!

The Reiss dress would also do for work with a jacket, so multi purpose!
