Style Notes

Romantic and intricately detailed, the Mother of Pearl dress is perfect to rent for an engagement party or formal evening soiree. Victorian-inspired corded lace is the focus with pearl beading for a luxurious finish. A high neckline and fitted long sleeves strike a stunning balance against the mini skirt that skims off the hips for a flattering fit-and-flare shape.

  • White corded lace with pearl embellishment
  • Partially lined in nude with a back cut out
  • Fitted bodice with long sleeves and A-line skirt

This dress looks beautiful on all body types. For an elegant bridal look, pair with a pointed white heel and pared back gold jewellery. Wear your hair up to show off the exquisite neckline. For more styling tips, read our blog post on what to wear to an engagement party.
