Style me please! need a nice top/dress for a night out with friends?
I've been reading this board for a while and took some tips from it, now I need the big guns. I'm meeting some friends from abroad who I haven't seen for three years. We're going to a pub for a night out. Want to wear something stylish and not "mumsy" iyswim - and avoid going all black which I probably will do if I don't find anything.
I got myself a pair of jeans which fit well. Unfortunately am a size 14 on top (modest norkage) and 16 at the bottom which doesn't help at all with trying dresses. Also have a fat magnet in my belly, making me an apple shape. One plus point is that I have good legs. I'm brunette with green eyes.Sallow pale skin (NW20 in MAC foundation). Big task I'm afraid Thanks for any help.
Do like the first one Penthesileia linked, if you are tallish they have the same one in a lovely purple colour. Or what about a tunic top here that's a bit gathered to hide everthing and give a nod towards the fashion of grecian pleats and gathers that are in at the moment. It would look nice with jeans or a short skirt to show off your legs and a nice jacket or coat and some a pendant necklace.
