Kate loves them. Carole rocks them. Camilla glams them up. Dress coats – or matching dress and coats – are a serious go-to for royal wedding attendees. Why? Because they're an effortlessly stylish one-size-fits-all look. And they're classy, elegant and demure. Wear yours with a beautiful hat / fascinator in a complementary or even matching colour for an extremely regal mother of the bride outfit. Even the Queen loves them!
Then, when the time comes, take the jacket off, to reveal a lighter dress beneath. You aren't expected to dance in your jacket! We love this look in pale and pastel colours for the chicest summer mother of the bride outfit. Velvet details, thicker fabrics and Peter Pan collars are ideal for a celebration in cooler months.
