Outfit help for a presentation please

I need to give a presentation soon and it is going to be filmed. I am struggling to find an outfit to wear that looks professional, has a long enough skirt/dress length, will be easy to move around in.

I would usually visit lots of shops and try things on but that is obviously not possible at present.

I would really appreciate any ideas you have of outfits to consider or shops.

I am 5 ft 10 and prefer to wear a dress or skirt with a jacket. This is mostly because I am pear shaped and can hardly ever find trousers that fit well. Length wise I would like the skirt/dress to be on or just below the knee. I am finding that most dresses look to be above the knee which is a bit too short for me. I am a size 12 usually but might be more size 14 at present.

I work in a corporate world but don't want to be too formal - ideally look professional but also approachable.

I usually wear at least one piece of fairly bold colour (I am a 'blue' autumn according to House of Colour) however I was wondering about playing it very safe and looking for a navy blue outfit.

I am looking for an outfit that is of decent quality if possible because it needs to match the type of business that I am in.

Thank you very much for any ideas that you might have!

Have you looked at The Fold?

I would recommend The Fold as well. Highly wearable, nothing too "stiff" and yet very professional. I just wish I didn't work from home so much and could justify buying more of their stuff!

Thank you both. I'm off to look at The Fold now ...

Thank you very much for your suggestions. The clothes do look exactly the right type.

I have ordered a couple of different outfits to try and hope that they fit when they come.
