Occasion Tops and Blouses

From draping jersey 2 in 1 top, fluid swing styles and pleated satin blouses to embellished tunics there’s something for every occasion. Summer is a time for sleeveless strappy tops in pretty pastel prints, while winter takes on more vibrant colours in long sleeves and warmer fabrics. Jersey occasion tops are special all year round and especially at Christmas. The Party season brings with it a multitude of inspiring pieces full of sparkle, sequins and super chic designs. We hope you like our collection of occasion tops and blouses.

Jersey OCCASION Tops

Finding the right style top to suit your body shape will enhance your overall look. For an hourglass figure a wrap over jersey top is perfect. Anyone with a smaller bust can go with plenty of detail including frill necklines and ruffles. Collar types and neckline have to be considered to get the best finish to your outfit. Discovering your best style will give you a confident look revealing the parts most favourable and soften other areas.

Stylish Shirts and Blouses

Simple cuts and plain fabrics are best left for the fuller figure. Shirts and blouses with pockets are great for adding texture and extra layers. Short tops and short sleeves suit trim figures whilst a fabulous jewel neckline is fab for all. With a lot to consider it’s good to take your time to achieve the best results.

Satin Blouses

Satin blouses in soft stretchy fabric with a collar worn open offer timeless elegance worn with a classic pencil skirt. There always a place in your occasionwear wardrobe for a luxury silk blouse. 3/4 sleeve tops and long sleeve blouses give good arm coverage and favoured by many women. A choice of sleeve styles includes bracelet, full, batwing and short cap sleeves. Depending on the season cover ups and jackets can be worn for extra layering where needed. For a three-piece outfit a skirt, jacket and matching top is a great choice for Mother of the Bride or Mother of the Groom. Chesca and Eastex have a range of smart tailored suits and wedding wear ideal for Grandmother of the Bride too.
