Mother of the Bride Wedding and Occasion Coats

Drape Duster Jackets

Luxe fabrics combined with clever draping give a classic look a modern twist. Look out for leather, wool, suede and faux suede waterfall jackets for winter. The waterfall jacket gives a smart and super flattering appearance and looks great on any occasion. Casual looks and statement pieces can be found at Chesca. Their collection includes easy to wear plus size shrugs that hang beautifully over matching tops and elasticated skirts. Abstract prints, bead detail and sequins add glamour. The satin trim chiffon waterfall jackets look great over palazzo pants.

Plus Size Loose Fitting Jackets

In addition to plus size clothing at Chesca, you will also find a flattering range at Navabi. Here slim and wide leg dressy trouser suits come with open front loose-fitting jackets. Perfect looks for an alternative wedding outfit for Mother of the Bride and Groom. Pull-on elasticated waist chiffon trousers, satin camisoles and beaded cover-ups look great for the Grandmother of the Bride too. Jackets with a waterfall collar add extra femininity with their wavy drape while the dipped front elongates the figure. Longline waterfall chiffon jackets work well over wide-leg trousers. A lightweight cover-up is ideal for outdoor events in the summer, giving enough coverage to take off the chill.

CC Fashion latest collection of linen jackets sport open waterfall front lapels, three quarter and full-length sleeves in both cropped and longer length styles. Poppy red, refreshing lime and bright purple are just a few of the colours in the range. Winter check short coats with draping neckline and edge to edge cardigans offer a relaxed form of outerwear.
