Plain and Simple

Monday, July 12 2021

Monday 12th July marks National Simplicity Day, which honours the birthday of Henry David Thoreau, born in 1817. Thoreau was an advocate of living simply and wrote a number of well-known books on the subject.

“Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication” – Leonardo Da Vinci.

With this quote from Da Vinci in mind, we've taken a look at some of our ‘simplest' yet elegant styles to celebrate.

Gorgeous Georgia

With a classic boat neckline and fit-and-flare skirt in our exquisite Ponte Roma jersey, the Georgia looks and feels simply luxurious. Beautifully fitting and designed to flatter, this versatile style will be your favourite feel-good dress. Cut in a gently tailored shape with princess seams to the bust, side pockets and a panelled skirt that floats to the perfect length. A glamorous ¾ sleeve adds a relaxed sophistication that's easy to dress up for any occasion, work or weekends.

Astonishing Annie

Created for a flattering silhouette, this stunning fit-and-flare design in dreamy ivory features a gathered crossover-neckline and 3/4 length sleeves. Say 'I Do' at your intimate wedding or keep it casual with ankle boots and your favourite belt. Either way this bestselling design is a firm favourite for instant slimming style, comfort and wearability. Made in a sheer smooth jersey with a hint of sheen that overlays our favourite soft viscose jersey lining.

Perfect Pippa

If you're looking for a wedding dress that elongates, flatters and turns heads then Pippa is the perfect match. Cut from superbly soft micromodel jersey and lined in soft Ivory jersey to sculpt a perfect wedding day silhouette. With a straight neckline and flattering high waist this dress cinches and smooths your waist while the full-length skirt falls effortlessly to the ankle – classic and statuesque.

Humbling Havana

If you dream of a Grecian style wedding dress then Havana is the gown to make your wish come true. Lightweight, ethereal and so special to wear, Havana is an elegant wedding dress with regal details. The timeless cross over neckline can be worn on or off the shoulders, pulling in at the waist. From the waist, a gentle, fluid skirt drapes in soft swathes of jersey to the floor. This is a truly divine dress perfect for both ceremony and after party, designed to create a statuesque silhouette.

Understated Accessorising

Whilst simplicity may suggest you don't accessorise, we have several understated accessories that will really help complete your simple and elegant outfit. Accentuate your waist with a luxurious ivory sash belt in either velvet, faux silk or satin. Or perhaps complete your look in one of our silk wedding veils which is perfect for the bride who just wants a hint of veil, our barely there pure silk chiffon design is luxuriously lightweight and will complement any of our bridal dresses.

It is suggested that today, we should all take a moment to do one of the following to mark the occasion:

1. Declutter your home

2. Unplug your gadgets

3. Go out and celebrate nature

4. Unwind and take some time to yourself.

We hope you've found time to appreciate the simpler things today, because if the past 18 months have taught us anything, it's that the simplest things can often be the best.
