    Good idea

    I'm losing pregnancy weight at the minute and I'm over the crest of my fatness but still in frumpy clothes for now.
    I'd describe them as, hmm...maybe something you'd find in Millers or Rockmans.
    Or the older lady section in Myer HAHA
    I just don't know how to dress when I'm this big.
    When I'm smaller I like a nice pair of jeans or jeggings with boots for winter (no way am I squeezing my trunks into them this winter) and long tops/jumpers.
    Not keen on flashing bum at my age.
    Think it looks weird on older ladies to be honest.
    I saw one woman, definitely in her late forties, at a school assembly last yr, she was wearing a pair of pants very similar to riding jodhpurs. Almost flesh coloured too. I can still see them there, burned on the back of my eyelids.
    No!
    Oh and I LOVE big warm chunky scarves, winter or summer.
    I love being covered up though, I find winter dressing easy and summer dressing very hard.

    I wear leggings, with a t-shirt and scarf, then a longline/waterfall cardi over the top.

    Or jeans (skinny or straight leg) with a tailored collared shirt and v-neck jumper over the top - shirt is worn untucked and cuffs are rolled up over the bottom of the jumper's sleeves so you can see the pattern and it's a bit more laid back than tucked in.

    Or jeans with t-shirt and scarf and unstructured jacket.

    Shoes are either ankle boots (I just bought a cheapie pair from Novo) or ballet flats.
    • Jeans - cheapie from Target and a more expensive pair from Sportscraft
    • T-shirts are cheapies from Next Direct
    • Scarfs/tailored shirts/woolen jumpers are from Sportscraft
    • jersey leggings from Old Navy/Gap
    • waterfall cardigans from Portmans
    • Unstructured jackets - David Lawrence
    I've started thinking about a SAHM capsule wardrobe (mentioned in the declutter thread) and what I would put in it if I were to do one for winter. Mine would be:
    • jeans - 1 x dark skinny, 1 x mid-blue straight-leg
    • leggings - 1 x charcoal, 1 x black
    • waterfall/longline cardies - 1 x black, 1 x grey
    • jackets - 1 x black, 1 x red
    • t-shirts - 1 x red, 1 x black, 1 x navy, 1 x khaki
    • patterned scarfs x 3
    • jumpers - 1 x black, 1 x green, 1 x pink-purple
    • tailored shirts - 1 x green floral, 1 x pink-purple floral
    • boots - 1 x mushroom/taupe colour
    • ballet flats - 1 x red, 1 black, 1 x pink
    = 24 items

    I wear leggings pretty much (I have a legging addiction - it's a thing, really!) every day with tunic style tops or over sized t shirts and chunky knits and a scarf or my denim jacket.

    I almost always wear: jeans (skinny), singlet or camisole, long sleeve stretchy top, non-clingy flowy sleeveless top over that and a big warm long length cardi. I live in pull-on ankle boots in a dark tan colour and stick a beanie and a down puffer jacket on for outside!

    When I go to the city to wear winter clothes I love my skinny jeans, clingy long sleeved top with a jacket and boots. I'm also a legging girl so love leggings with a long top/jumper. I have a few trackies that are velour boot leg style, have a range of brighter colours, I love them

    Apparently I'm the only person here who does not own a pair of leggings??? I have decided that I need some - can anyone help with where to get some for tall women?

    My winter wardrobe at the moment consists of skinny jeans, a long sleeved shirt and a scarf. On those chilly Brisbane winter mornings (ha!) I'll throw on a jacket

    @gizmo, you won't look back. Leggings are sooooo comfy and they look great.

    I got mine online shopping from Old Navy in the US, but Next (UK, free shipping if you spend over $30) have great ones too. And ASOS is awesome for that kind of thing as well. Next in particular have a "tall" range so that might be your best bet.

    I live in knee high socks, skinny jeans and boots over the jeans, long sleeved tops (layers) with either jumpers, slouchy knits and a jacket and scarves in winter.
