Sophisticated tweed, crepe and shantung fabrics perfect for a wedding outfit for Grandmother of the Bride. Skirts with matching jacket in navy, soft brown and mink for winter occasions. Catch summer collections in pretty pink, blue, ivory and cream. Here you’ll find Mother of the Bride outfits and occasion skirts from brands Jacques Vert, Eastex and Precis.

Skirt Suits

The timeless look suits all ages and has a place in the occasion and workwear wardrobe. For sophisticated tailoring classic brands such as Viyella and Eastex have smart tweed, pleat hem and belted styles. Bright colours and cool linen define the summer collections with wool fabrics in darker shades lined up for the winter range.

Jaeger ladies-wear include business suits with slim fitting skirts in black, navy and grey. Younger fashion from Ted Baker and Reiss have kickback flare, panelled and stitch detail pencil skirts for an updated look. In addition to gorgeous dresses, Coast has knee length skirts in a variety of finishes and fabrics including stretch satin.

Styling a pencil is a breeze. For effortless elegance slip on a silk blouse, pointed courts and clutch. Keeping any other accessories simple. Leather pencil skirts may not be the first choice for a wedding look but they do give your going-out wardrobe an edge. The pencil skirt is an easy choice to dress up for desk to dinner occasions. For a little more glam sequin pencil skirts give a more sultry look.
