My brother is getting married after Christmas and I can’t seem to find anything in the shops at the moment that’s suitable for a wedding. I’ve tried Oasis, River Island, Alwear, Karen Millen and Lipsy. Can you suggest any shops or boutiques to try? I’d like a knee-length, fitted dress, which is not strapless. I’m 5ft 7in, and a size 10. Thank you. Fran and Jane has a great selection of dresses that are totally wedding appropriate.
Its Leigh dress, €249, with a round neck and embellished shoulders, is a classic shift shape that falls to the knee. The jewel detailing on the cap sleeves of their Shona dress, €199, gives this classic LRD an extra bit of sparkle. Mango also does some great dresses — their velvet Aeryn dress, €59.90, is super-flattering thanks to its slim fit, boat neck and ruched waist. If you want a more form-fitting option, then Chica boutique’s Tilly dress, €94, which comes in a red paisley print and falls just above the knee, has plenty of va-va voom, see www.chicaboutiqueonline.com.
