I want to upgrade my formal workwear to better strike a balance between colourful, professional & flattering - I find that very straight lines/ menswear don't gel well with my overall curvy features (no idea of my Kibbe type) but also that romantic/ soft styles can look too 'barmaid' on my body.

With this dilemma in mind, what do you think of wearing this dark green suit to interviews, demo classes (I'm a teacher) & conferences? I'm currently making do with this suit for Zoom meetings & the like, but I'm thinking ahead. Too 70s with the blouse & longer blazer? If so, any alternative (suit or shirt) suggestions?

My HEWI to solve this balancing act is a single-breasted chocolate brown pantsuit in a breathable fabric, so any recommendations for that would also be appreciated!
