A dress which will work in any season, this piece ties together luxurious tweed with delicate lace and mesh panels. The tweed is carefully intertwined with threads in a rainbow of sherbert hues and sparkling gold. The cap sleeves in sage coloured lace balance out the fitted knee-length pencil skirt. An exposed zip and cut out detail to the back of the dress add a tougher edge.
We love this dress for the races, or hire for a classy look for a work function. Pair with minimal gold jewellery, nude heels and rent a subtle fascinator for the perfect race day look.
