Gorgeous dresses for wedding guests

If you have an important wedding on the horizon then you’ll want to look your best.

Many of our dresses for the big day have been designed to give you total comfort and freedom, so nothing can stop you busting a move on the dancefloor.

Ladies’ occasion, daytime and work dresses

Whether you’re heading out for the weekend with the kids, hitting the town with the girls or being whisked away overseas, we’ve got dresses for every occasion. What’s more, our collection comprises mini, midi and maxi lengths to complement all shapes and sizes.

Daytime dresses

Combining comfort with a chic appeal, our day dresses range from casual swing dresses, soft jersey dresses, pretty floral dresses and feminine wrap dress. Whether it’s brunch with family, lunch with the girls or a weekend away with your other half, we’ve got styles to suit all settings and seasons. The great thing about day dresses, they’re a true wardrobe staple as they’re so easy to dress up or down. Plain designs look great layered beneath throw-on jackets and teamed with trainers to create a stylish laid-back look. When it comes to prints, go bold with vibrant florals, pay homage to nautical inspiration with heritage stripes or unleash your wild side and look fierce in animal print.

After all, who doesn’t love an excuse to get all dolled up? Our range from figure-flattering midi length pencil and shift dresses to floaty twirl-worthy swing and tea dresses. 

Catwalking through 9-5 in smart work dresses

Give your workwear a well-deserved promotion and be the boss in a statement power-dress. The signature pencil dress remains a firm favourite when creating a polished look, making it a great choice for the office. Cut in a midi length with a figure-hugging fit, this timeless shape works to effortlessly sculpt your silhouette. Similar to pencil dresses, the classic shift dress remains a staple in your work wardrobe. Again styled below the knee, our selection of smart outfits have been crafted with added stretch to gently hug your figure. Team with a sleek blazer or suit jacket to create a timeless tailored look perfect for business meetings, the boardroom and corporate events. If you prefer something a little more relaxed, a floaty shirt style might be right up your street.

Whether you’re jetting off on a summer holiday or enjoying a summer garden party, we’ve got a selection of summer dresses to keep you cool and comfortable, all the while looking ever so chic. Cut with a billowing longline silhouette, our maxi styles have the power to be dressed-up or down, making them a simple must on your holiday checklist.
