Evening Wear

The long and the short of it

Most women know what size they are can vary from shop to shop, even which brand of dress you try on. However, it is the cut and shape that will make a dramatic difference to how fantastic you look in your evening wear, or the John Charles mother of the bride dress you’ve had your eye on for the last two months.

Should you be wearing a short jacket with your Condici dress, or a long one? In the capable and friendly hands of our stylists at our boutique off Oxford Street, it wont take long to find out which of our internationally renowned designers, such as the elegant Condici mother of the bride dresses and jackets, will suit your frame.

A long jacket is a wonderful garment to elongate the body and coupled with a straight, sleeveless shift Condici dress flatters those with a generous waistline. To accentuate a more petite body try a short jacket coupled with, say the couture beauty of an Ian Stuart dress. For those with a more curvaceous figure a shorter jacket, although not too short, will create the wow factor you want in occasion wear, such as you’ll find in the sophistication of the Paule Vasseur collection.
