Get the look: Amy Huberman

It's not quite a midi, and not quite a maxi - Amy Huberman's skirt lies somewhere in between those two lengths, and is the better for it.
Maxis can sometimes look too straight-from-the-1970s, and, with a midi-length skirt, it can be hard to find shoes that don't cut the leg awkwardly.
Amy's biker jacket is a nice contrast to the rather ladylike skirt, and a black polo-neck is such a handy go-with-everything item, that we should all have one in our wardrobes.
I'm looking for a classy jumpsuit that I can wear for my son's First Holy Communion day. I have tried on some, but find they don't fit to flatter my shape. I'm tall, but I have a problem with my tummy area, and I find that belted jumpsuits do nothing for me. I'm a 45-year-old mother of four, and a size 14-16.
Whistles, in Brown Thomas, has a cropped-leg (to mid-calf) black jumpsuit, €210, the Cecilia, that is worth looking at. It's waisted, with soft gathers at the waistband, which will help disguise the tummy issue. Reiss has a beautiful grey jumpsuit, €295, the Amelia. It has long sleeves, a full-length leg and a slightly dropped back. Two-tone can work well, especially if you're tall. French Connection's Spring Wrap jumpsuit - which has a white cross-over top, black trousers, a fitted waist and discreet pockets, €125 - should work well with a blazer thrown over it.
