Monsoon carries key trends into formalwear
Going to a wedding or a graduation ball on the lawn? Over at our sister site Bridalwave, this great outfit from Monsoon has been created for the younger, fashion conscious mother of the bride, but I think it would look great on any occasion or any age.
This frock is a lush version of the summer trend - the maxi dress. The green silk hangs beautifully to give a flowing silhouette. Combine with this mint green wrap which compliments the colour of the dress well and stands in to take care of any breeze, whether standing outside a church, or having champagne in a gazebo.
Finish the look off with some subtle metallic court shoes. Bang on trend, these are both fashionable and comfortable, with a mid heel that's easy to dance the night away in. This outfit is a great formal option with an eye for trends that still carries a definite air of class.
