2/ Oh, one last thing - if in doubt go for black, trust me you'd sooner be safe than sorry, especially when you're expected to be looking bright, fresh and smart.. you don't want to be looking even remotely fashionably challenged.3/ P.S. Absolutely no asymmetrical or 'zig-zag' hem lines. Yuck!
What To Do:
Enough of the eye sores, next some nice skirt suits :D
The two suits above are from modern muslimah. They're really smart and stylish, I love the second one, it looks so good with a Turkish style hijab (far more professional looking than a shayla style). The great thing about suits is you don't have to wear the top and bottom together all the time and you can mix and match with different tops and blouses. The runway is great for inspiration.
Luckily, smart trousers are generally loose fitted. If you go for the wide leg trouser suit you usually just need to make sure that your bottom is properly covered :) You can achieve this with a loose pair of trousers or a longer jacket.
The first two suits are from onestopplusrewards
I like these but I must admit the first suit is slightly dull so if you go for a colour like this, wear a statement bag to balance it out.
Unfortunately the above shop is dedicated only to the larger woman but I love these suits from elegance
They have a really nice selection of suits I would love to own but they come with a heavy price tag too! :(
If you don't like the suit altogether, there are other ways to dress smart of course. The most obvious being simply a skirt or wide legs and blouse..endless possibilities
And the second (my fave idea) a long dress with a smart jacket over the top. This pic is just to give you and idea of the look but you can go for different colours and styles to suit you:
And finally my idea of a 'suit alternative' outfit:
Um, the shoes are there more for show to be honest..I would wear flats :D
