    Was thinking semi opaque black tights with court shoes with the suit... Should be reasonably smart?

    I thought it was quite nice, surprisingly for a Topshop dress, until I saw how short it is and the low back. That would be so much nicer if it was just below the knee with a higher back!

    So no, not appropriate...might make you look like you're offering other services if you get what I'm saying?!

    I do have broader shoulders and I have not tried it on yet as I was interested in opinions... If favourable will pop into town tomorrow :p:

    abc101: Second look showed me how really short it was, I know what you mean.

    will be trying on the nice skirt suit from Next tomorrow, probably best to go wearing or take opaque tights with me ? I don't like my legs.

    The dress.

    If worn with tights and a blazer you won't look inappropriate, you'll look smart and proper

    Just to repeat, I do not think that the dress will flatter you at all. I also think that it would look weird with a blazer.

    I am not happy with the length, for one I don't have the legs or the looks to pull the style needed for the dress...

    For the skirt suit should I still go for opaque black tights, court shoes and black handbag?

    I wouldn't go for opaque tights in summer, I think it's too heavy. I'd go for something slightly more shear, but still black. Maybe a 10 denier?

    wear a shirt/ blouse. in a cream colour would look nice with the grey shade of the suit.

    EDIT: take a look at http://www.shopstyle.co.uk/browse?fts=cream+blouse# for ideas on style etc.
