I have got a pair of brown smart jeans-cut trousers from Per Una which I wear with long tops, a pair of suit-type trousers which unfortunately don't fit me brilliantly but were cheap and there when I needed some, also from M&S; and a selection of skirts- cord, flared, a couple of longer ones. I also have a knitted dress and an officey, sixties style tunic dress which I wear over shirts. With these bottoms I'll wear shirts, or smart t style tops (the sort you get from Jackpot and the like, if I am flush, or the sort you can get in H&M if I'm not!). This year I am wearing a long knitted sleeveless cardi thing, which is great for hiding lumps and bumps. I almost always wear a scarf to hide cleavage in the winter. Summer is trickier. Last year cropped linen trousers were a big feature. Shoes- I used to wear funky heels but now it's boots or (still funky) flats, unless I have a light timetable that day! If I get my new job I may invest in a couple of suits and try to smarten up a little bit... I'm 31.
