I need to get more flattering and professional clothing.
Some problems I have:
- I get flustered spending more than a half hour in a crowded store trying on clothes
-it's hard to find shirts that fit both on the top and around the waist (I don't want to wear baggy shirts or be spilling out of my top)
-I don't like heeled shoes but want to find some dressy and comfortable shoes (I like boots and flat shoes)
-I am not based in US but do have access to some Western brands: H & M (where I usually go); Zara, and a few others, but not many American brands. However, I can get stuff on trips to the US if you want to suggest some US clothing stores.
-Also, what kinds of cuts are flattering and professional for my body type? How do I determine what clothing items are office-wearable?
