In a soft, luxurious blush shade this dress by John Charles offers the mother of the bride an exquisite, feminine outfit for that very special day in her life.

Available in sizes 8 to 18 the dress suggests true class, typical of John Charles designs. It works to contour the curves while movement in the skirt and modern jacket give it a fun, playful appearance too.

The dress itself has a classic shift style with a twist as the bottom has a fishtail skirt which kicks out to add shape and give this dress that je ne sais quoi.

In contrast to the elegant simplicity of the skirt, the top half is decorated with intricate sequin detail. A pretty design of flowers frames the body from the waist upwards using thousands of beautiful sequins showcasing the anything but ordinary appeal of this dress. The floral design is extensive and really gives the dress status.

The neckline is further embellished with a row of shimmering sequins adding to the effortless day to night feel.

The sheer sleeves, which meet the elbow, continue the floral design, giving a hint of flesh beneath and a slightly loose fit. They are also trimmed with sequins to match the eye-catching neckline. The back of the dress is as beautiful as the front, with pretty button detail.

The mother of the bride or mother of the groom can add a modern element with the option of a floaty, open-armed cape style coat. Great for extra coverage, the loose jacket sleeves kick out, matching the fishtail shape of the skirt. It also features lovely stitch details which follow the curve of the body and add shape and structure in all the right places.

The combination of the pretty blush colour, the floral theme and the playful fishtail make this outfit extra feminine helping the mother of the bride to feel beautiful and confident on the big day.
