A new colour for 2017, this beautifully soft lemon shade is simply stunning. Think pale sorbet tones rather than strong yellow hues- a truly classic colour that will compliment many skin tones.

Available in sizes 8 to 16, this gorgeous fitted dress is made from a lightly textured jacquard and offers the mother of the bride a sophisticated yet modern look for her very special day.

The beauty is in the detail of the dress and it’s the fine touches that really help to flatter the body. Slight pleats around the waist and tummy area help to pull in and flatten the middle, while a deep V neck and short capped sleeves show off just the right amount of skin. The simple bobble effect embellishment is a very up-to-date take on formal dress design and makes the dress interesting yet perfectly elegant. As mother of the bride or of course mother of the groom, guests will be left in doubt about your style credentials.

A matching cropped jacket with a round neck and three quarter length sleeves is embellished in the same design as the dress and gives the outfit a chic edge with a more formal finish. It’s the perfect mother of the bride choice for a special sun dappled wedding. Alternatively you might simply want to turn heads at that VIP garden party or even Ascot. This is definitely the dress to do so in.
