Midi and Maxi Dresses and Skirts

There’s something ultra-feminine about midi and maxi length dresses and skirts that are forever timeless. With a nod to old Hollywood glamour and a bygone era, this season brings an eclectic mix of fashion updates. So whether it’s a statement prom dress, Mother of the Bride or party outfit there’s a dress for every event. For those that prefer two-piece styling floor-skimming skirts coordinate with a variety of high necked blouses and tops. Reworked styles crafted in opulent silk, chiffon and lace are adorned with embroidered sequins and beads. Embellished shoes and bags are available too for a complete look.

High Necks and Long Sleeves

It’s a great time to update your wardrobe with practical and versatile separates to take you from season to season. Even better when they work well together and capture the essence of modest dressing. Chic designs favouring high necks include pussy-bow blouses, buttoned-up shirts and collared tops with frills and ruffles. For arm coverage, interchangeable items create a multitude of outfit combinations. Find perfect layering with waterfall cover-ups, shawls and kimono wraps along with ponchos and capes.

Silk Linen and Cotton Kaftans

Kaftans are making waves in fashion at the moment and are not just for the beach. So it’s not surprising the relaxed feel and freedom of movement has made the kaftan a favoured everyday summer dress. Long kaftans worn as dresses come in a choice of finishes in cool linen, cotton and sumptuous silk. Designers have redefined the iconic seventies kaftan from billowing resort wear to a more casual yet sophisticated look. Many feature striking prints in deep and pastel shades which make for stand-out styling whatever the season.

Kaftans, Tunics and Trousers

The trend for conservative dressing has made way for longline jackets, tunics and kaftan layering. Most of all, the easy-wearing charm of kaftan tunics has seen their popularity rise, especially in the summer months. They look just as great worn alone as they do paired with cool linen trousers.
