Style 26425

Inspired by Old Hollywood, this dress is crafted in flattering stretch jacquard in our signature John Charles silhouette. Careful construction ensures your waist is naturally enhanced, with gentle pleating under the bust designed to flatter the form.

This feminine floral print allows the decorative off-the-shoulder detailing to do the talking. The sheer, pearlised illusion neckline adorns the shoulders for a look that is eternally glamorous. Drawing attention to the shoulders is a perfect way to balance an hourglass shape and celebrate your figure.

Finished with a co-ordinated wide brim hat and statement bow, this divine look was made for celebrating.


Style 26430

Gentle, multi-dimensional floral print is the first thing that catches your eye about this feminine design.

Immaculately designed in a pleated wrap around the bodice, the shape is endlessly flattering. This is a style that works particularly well for larger busts, due to the nature of the pleating.

Crafted in stretch jacquard, the half sleeves are adorned with exceptional tonal lace. Available with a lux taffeta cropped jacquard, the tonal lace continues across the soft neckline for perfect coordination. Ensuring the sleeves on both the dress and jacket just cover the elbows creates a look that is both wonderfully flattering and seasonally appropriate.


Style 26453

This stretch satin jacquard dress is the one for the classically glamorous. Stretch jacquard is a divine meet of beauty and comfort, as it contours the female silhouette.

Our signature John Charles silhouette has been given an update with subtle pleating along the skirt, complementing the organic floral pattern. This style is particularly good for pear-shapes, with pleating beginning just below the bust to slim the form. The half sleeves and jewelled roll-neck detail are contemporary luxe at it’s finest.

Relaxed sophistication.


Style 26428

Contemporary sophistication and timeless elegance meet in this luxurious design. With a dynamic lace neckline, all eyes are drawn upwards creating a natural hourglass for those with wide hips.

This stretch jacquard dress benefits from a softly textured floral pattern in a classically feminine shape. Subtle patterns are both a stylish and flattering decision, as they mask any imperfections.

The textured illusion lace sleeve detailing is delicately feminine. The wide brim hat completes this look for unforgettable style.
