John Charles has been designing occasion outfits and dresses for many years and has been one of our most popular designers since we opened the boutique twenty years ago. With the arrival of a new designer at this leading UK label for the 2020 season comes a whole new look and a slightly improved sizing too, so they won't come up as neat as in previous years.

In come softer fabrics such as chiffon to offer a lighter look for summer weddings and events and a new style that exudes femininity. There is almost a vintage look to some of the new styles, which we love. Harking back to the days of glamour, styles such as this 26847 shown at the top of the page offer a flattering design with waterfall sleeves and an asymmetrical peplum style over a pencil skirt.

Of course John Charles are renowned for their fitted stretch fabrics and they certainly aren't leaving these behind. The increasingly popular boat neckline is a strong look for 2020 and John Charles 26864 shown above features this look with a beautiful lavender and blue print, ideal for summer weddings.

John Charles 26863 Mother Of The Bride Trouser Suit

For the first time we are seeing the introduction of trouser suits for mothers of the bride and groom. Bucking the traditional look, it's definitely something we get asked for and is a welcome addition to the range of options available to mothers. Adding their own stamp to this look the designer brings elegant features into John Charles 26863 such as the waterfall sleeves and draping side which softens the transition from top to trouser beautifully.

So if you have considered John Charles in the past but found the styling too structured for you then it's time to revisit this designers stunning collection for the new 2020 season.
