Whether you’re heading for dinner and drinks, a summer wedding or a garden party, spring and summer is full of beautiful occasions.
Amanda Wakeley is our go-to designer when it comes to a luxe dress, and we know you love her too! Occasionwear isn’t just limited to Christmas and New Year; summer dos require an equally amazing piece. We’ve taken a look at this season’s show-stopping pieces, and chosen a few of our favourites to ensure you step out in style…
If you’re heading to a summer wedding, christening or garden party, a delicate pastel dress is an ideal choice for a happy occasion. We love Amanda’s exquisitely cut Lilac Silk Tulle Midi Dress, for it embraces feminine elegance perfectly! The elasticated waist creates or enhances your waist whilst creating a delicate, gathered style, and open sleeves cover your arms whilst adding an ethereal touch to a pretty dress.
Ready to stand out this season? You’ll look gorgeous in this Cloque Jacquard Statement Sleeve Cardamom Dress. With the luxurious cloque fabric, this Amanda Wakeley dress is ideal for smart occasions from chic garden parties to events. We love the flattering, intricate gold jacquard design and belt that flatters the waist, and the statement sleeves help this look truly stand out; yet the knee-length designs keeps this dress classy enough to suit any gorgeous lady over 50.
For a more casual yet equally stunning look, the Lattice Check Printed Crepe De Chine Wrap Dress makes a statement. This gorgeous silk midi dress is just perfect for cocktails and garden parties alike, and the pretty printed crepe de chine fabric will stay timeless. The dress is given structure with the sculpted satin hem and wrapped bodice that cinches the waist, whilst grosgrain cuffs and a fringed satin neckline add an extra touch of luxury; ideal for dressing up or down.
The Cloque Jacquard Off The Shoulder Dress is utterly stunning. The black and gold design makes it ideal for a formal event, but the bardot neckline adds an extra touch of summer to the look. The luxe cloque fabric helps to create a voluminous skirt trimmed with an intricate gold jacquard design on the asymmetric skirt hem for a pretty embroidery-like effect, whilst the belt cinches in the waist and bardot neckline finishes the chic and luxurious look.
Finally, the Midnight Sleeveless Silk Tulle Dress is the ultimate choice for a summer ball or black-tie event. The iconic Amanda Wakeley goddess designs are epitomised in this look with the fluid volume that moves beautifully on the dancefloor or by the bar. With delicate lace trims across the bodice and neckline, this simple yet delicate design creates a truly ethereal look perfect for smart occasions.
You may have seen us mention this piece before, but the Chunky Gold Necklace really is the perfect piece to go with almost any outfit. This signature piece will elevate both day and nights, and works with everything from t-shirts to cocktail dresses!
