Outfit help for a presentation please
6

autumnpie · 19/08/2020 21:53

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 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.
