Published 30/11/2010 | 14:53
This season, it’s all about grown-up glamour, and if you’re looking for something to fit the bill for the party season, look no further than 50s-inspired Irish label Charlotte & Jane.
The designs are the ultimate in indulgence. Dyed exclusively for Charlotte & Jane by Kerry Woollen Mills, the lambs wool/angora mix dresses are available in a range of striking and season appropriate colours from rich red to deep magenta, sky blue, sage green, deep pinks and gentle turquoise.
Bows are still big news so the ‘Rosa Maria’ dress is spot on with cheeky bow detailing on the neckline. Team it with a short bolero style jacket and kitten heels to look effortlessly chic during the day and glam it up at night with statement jewellery, patterned tights and skyscraper heels.
For the ultimate in sophistication, team the ‘Sophia’ dress with smoky eye make-up, pearls and trend-inspired lace gloves for a real nod towards elegant 50’s style. Or go all out with the very aptly named ‘Audrey Hepburn’ dress featuring eye catching bow detailing at the neckline and a cut that beautifully accentuates and flatters the figure.
The perfect piece of clothing should feel like it was designed just for you, but sadly that’s easier said than found. The best thing about Charlotte & Jane is that you can buy the designs off the rail or go online and fully customise your dress. Right from choosing the design to selecting the fabric, dress length and sleeve type, this is the ideal way to tailor your outfit and compliment your unique personal taste and body shape.
In addition to the online store, Charlotte & Jane designs can be found in Granny’s Bottom Drawer, Sarah King Boutique, Silver Lining Boutique, Divine Boutique, Sola Boutique, Squisito Boutique, Ballybunion Fashions and Lola Boutique.
