I'm looking for an outfit for a graduation event, I've been told people dress up and it's quite smart, it will partly be outdoors
So could be chilly. Any ideas what I could wear I'm stuck. I'm 5'11 pear shape around a size 14.

Ohh love threads like these! I'm a pear shape too so will be back soon with ideas!
How old are you? What styles do you like? Can you wear short dresses?

Hi sorry for the late reply, I'm 29 and generally tend to wear fitted dresses or peplum I'm struggling with the balance to look really nice without overdoing it as it's a day event any help would be fantastic

What’s your budget? Any preference on colour? Maybe a dress with jacket for when you are outside?

I’d more or less given up on boden dresses but have bought 2 that I like this season - available in long - I’m the same height as you...

Bought this is 16 to accommodate my hips and thighs and like how it skims rather than clings...

I'd like to keep it under £100, but can be easily swayed blush. I'm open to all colour suggestions,
@keepmoving I love the first one the polka dot one might have to have a look, what is the sizing like?

14 fits fine - if you find a code you might be able to get it under £100!

Maybe something like this?
They model things awfully on the website but imagine with some nude heels. I think it would look really nice with a more curvy pear shape? Shows off the shape of your body without clinging too much?
