A dress and bolero jacket is a popular choice for a Mother of the Bride, Mother and the Groom and Grandmother of the Bride. Classic skirt suits and dresses with matching frock coats and dressy trouser suits give an alternative wedding look.

Complete Dress Suits

For complete wedding outfits take a look at Jacques Vert occasionwear collection. Here you can buy top to toe fully coordinating separates including matching shoes, handbags, stunning hats and fascinators. For modern looks including striking colour block dresses try Karen Millen.

Plus size two piece outfits at Chesca feature long line jackets, flowing skirts, camisoles and coordinating shrugs in addition to figure flattering shift styles and structured designs.


Wedding Dress & Frock Coat Combinations

Choosing a dress with coat to match is a great way of creating two looks from one outfit. It’s ideal for all day affairs such as weddings where a change of clothes is sometimes preferred. For daytime elegance wear the dress and coat with an upturned brimmed hat, high heels and dainty clutch. For night time glamour swap the coat for an evening shawl, replace the hat with a feather fascinator and slip into some soft satin pumps ready to dance the night away.

Tailored Shift Dresses

Get the Jackie O mode of high class tailoring with a classic shift dress and matching jacket. Former First Lady Jackie Kennedy Onassis was one of the greatest fashion icons of the last century. Her conservative yet chic approach to dressing is still adored today. Her signature shift dress matching peacoat with big buttons and pill box hat has a timeless appeal that has never faded. Don’t lose yourself in bulky fabrics instead streamline your look with clothes that compliment your build and fit you well.

The return of ladylike fashion introduces endless outfit combinations in feminine styles and fully coordinating pieces. Discover classic styles and complete wedding outfits at occasion wear specialists such as Jacques Vert, Chesca and modern Mother of the Bride and wedding guest inspiration from Adrianna Papell, Phase Eight and Coast.
