Q – My partner and I are having a summer wedding, and my mum wants to wear something seasonal. What do you suggest?
"One of my favourite elements of modern occasion wear is the choice available in both styles and colours. Dresses and jackets remain a popular look and come in a whole host of beautiful fabrics with exquisite detailing. For summer weddings, lots of mums opt for a stand-alone dress which can be equally glamourous.
"Variety is key, from chic shift shapes to full-skirted styles and everything in between. It’s always a good idea to try on a mixture of fabrics and colours to get a feel for what suits. It’s often the outfit a customer least expects to work on the hanger that turns out to be the one."
