Nice clothes wear me

I am starting a job soon that will require me to dress up. Well "up" by my standards anyways.
My issue is that nice stylish clothing is very overpowering on me. The skinny thing is a no go and all these tight pants and high boots terrify me.

I am more of a relaxed fit or boot cut jeans and a nice but not western plaid shirts shirt with my Justin boots. Maybe some khakis. Hoodies are always a big winner with me.

Nine of those things will work for my new job.

I am very curvy 36 dd, 29, 34 5ft 5 with somewhat short legs and long torso. Tight skinny pants do me no justice at all.

I go shopping a get so frustrated that I look so funky in the clothing style right now. I am not old and do not like looking like I am, but it looks as tho most of the clothes are either for older people or juniors or hookers.

There is no in-between.

What is a casual by nature girl to do?

Bumble, Huh. I knew that sounded familiar - Bumble's bounce. Dress like this guy: http://t0.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:z...usLogo.jpg&t=1
