    OK, so I just moved to Oslo and if you didn't know, it rains a lot here. Also, soon it will start to snow.

    I am keen to have a smart business image for work, but I have to commute (tube) so I need a few key capsule pieces that are smart but practical.

    The main things I need are:
    • a warm coat
    • some smart boots (preferably ankle as I have big calves)
    • some nice dresses
    • a couple of smart skirts and some good trousers
    • jumpers/cardigans





    Any suggestions or outfit inspirations would be greatly appreciated.

    I'm a UK size 14 with larger than average boobs, and am willing to spend above average as these will be things I'll wear a lot.

    I have access to H&M and Zara so I welcome suggestions from those shops in particular!

    Have you had a look on asos.com? They ship (6-11days) to your neck of the woods for 7€ or express it for 14€ apparently.

    Here is their 'Work Wardrobe' link - http://www.asos.com/Women/Work-Wardr...ize=-1&sort=-1

    I'm on the Zara website now, I clicked Norge hoping that it means Norway hahaha. I have no idea about the currency conversion but it seems blummin' expensive!

    As you want some key pieces, I'd get them quite plain and classic. Personally, I'd probably go for a black or beige coat and similar for the boots. But go wilder on the rest.

    I love loads of the coats!!! - http://www.zara.com/webapp/wcs/store...Trench%2Bcoats

    That's apparently a raincoat so might hold up better in the bad weather than some of the other coats?

    Thin polo neck jumpers with pinafore dresses over them with thick tights and boots - cute yet smart, and keep you warm and cosy!
