Maybe this can kick-start this forum!
And hopfully can become a regular poster again now I have a job with net-access and a desk!
Is there anywhere on the high-street that does NICE womens suits that won't make me look like a middle-aged secretary?
I have seen a couple of OK ones in Karen Millen but nowhere else really…
Preferably skirt suits, but need a couple of trouser ones too.

The gf always seems to buy hers at Hobbs and Reiss and she always looks good.

Thanks for the suggestions… I'm out in Norfolk which sadly doesn't have great retail options, but heading back to London for a weekend in early June and have set aside time and money for the job at hand.
Managed to get a couple of nice seperates off of ASOS Outlet, and there are lots of tailored dresses and gorgeous cardis about atm so I'm embracing the Mad Men look for the time being.
The 30s tails sound amazing! I'm sadly the wrong shape to carry off the menswear look… Too much hip and boobage. Which is a shame cos I love the whole Katharine Hepburn vibe… such gorgeous suits in Woman of the Year!
I'm off to a vintage fair tomorrow and hoping for a suit miracle….
