|What (Not) to Wear?!?!

So, I've newly graduated from university, and I'm in job search mode now. Problem is that in some of them, I actually would have to look well put together, and being an (ex-)poor student, I own jeans...and running shoes. And that's pretty much it.|
I understand what I'm supposed to look like, for say, business casual, but what I don't understand is the day-to-day mechanics of it. Like how you actually live and breathe in nice clothes.
For example, I went shopping for not-jeans, and bought a pair of these guys, but they're hipsters. They're pretty much the only one of those that fit me because I'm small but I have a lot of curve around the hips, so if it fits me on the hips chances are it's really baggy everywhere else.
So my first question is do people actually wear hipsters like that at work, and if so (and here's the problem I was having today when I was working a temp job) how do you keep err...okay. How do you avoid your butt crack from showing when you bend over? I was freakishly paranoid all day, and I don't think it's the sort of thing a belt would totally fix (I also hate belts).
Which leads me to the next question of shirts. Pretty much all the tapered (that's good) dressy shirts I tried on were pretty short. Short as in if I lifted my arms up there would be quite a bit of lower torso exposed. The regular (longer) ones like this look totally crappy on me - I more or less drown in them. So how do people wear those and not show the skin?
Can anyone who is used to dressing up this way every day share some wisdom? I'm so frustrated. Maybe I should return the hipsters oO.
