I'm in my 40s and am a size 12. I would like to find a couple of tops - maybe silk, preferably not sleeveless as it's cold, to wear with jeans e.g. to friends' houses, dinner parties, out for drinks etc.
Has anyone any suggestions? I am thinking colourful, maybe silk, well cut - not v baggy as that won't suit me. Not tarty. Just fun, colourful and flattering.
I've been stalking the Outnet and Trilogy, and had a look in M&S as I walked through the other day. I usually get lucky in little local boutiques but they've all failed too.
Jigsaw is good for silk tops. I saw this on a blog today that looks nice. I bought this in nude in the sale last January and have worn it masses, I like the see-through strip at the back. The shape of both of these is fairly relaxed but the luxe fabric makes them feel more dressy.
