Dresses and Matching Coats

Paired with a matching jacket or frock coat and you have the ultimate wedding ensemble. The simple structure speaks volumes in the style stakes. The figure flattering design suits most shapes and is a popular choice for a Mother of the Bride outfit, Mother of the Groom and Grandmother of the Bride too.

Plus Size Shift Dresses

Plus size clothing at Chesca and Navabi includes body-defining shift dresses to suit all shapes. New season designer dresses can be found from Betty Barclay, Apanage, Tahari, Gina Bacconi and Vera Mont. Softly textured pale pink crepe lace front dresses, cotton-rich, smooth firm stretch jersey styles too. Flattering finishes include princess seaming, wide boat and round necks plus clever waist panelling to streamline the silhouette.

Sleeveless Occasion Shift Dresses

Classic sleeveless shift dresses in vibrant florals and dainty prints are at the ready. Slip-on styles come in gorgeous stretch fabrics and fluid silk wool. Make an entrance in a poppy print dress in red, navy and ivory. Coordinate with a tailored jacket, heels and clutch for smart occasions.

Formal Day Dresses

Jacques Vert,  Gina Bacconi. Kaliko, Coast and Phase Eight collections include these and many more classic styles ideal for formal affairs. Designer brands at John Lewis, as well as luxury stores such as L.K. Bennett, Fenn Wright Manson and Hobbs, are also great for formal day dresses too.

The shift dress and jacket is a good combination for petite ladies, especially in a block colour. The one colour theme cleverly adds height and flatters the petite frame. Stores such as Precis Petite, CC Fashion and Minuet Petite have a fabulous collection including a variety of prints, shimmer fabrics and two-piece outfits.
