If you’re looking to update your holiday wardrobe and want something on-trend, stunning and will hi-light your tan, then look no further than the gorgeous Sadie Dress in white

The bright white deep ‘V’ neckline, accented with flowing ruffles lead the eyes down to a full and floaty pleated skirt with a net trimmed petticoat guaranteeing that your feminine curves can’t be missed. Billowing sheer pleated sleeves ensure that not too much skin is on show, allowing this dress to go from day-to-night with a change of top. Add a bandeau or vest in the day but at night be daring like Dolce and Gabbana (above) and wear a bra, bikini top or bralet for a night of cocktails!

The Sadie Dress in white is available on our website here, in our concessions in select Topshop stores and on the Topshop website here.

Each colour in the SADIE DRESS reflects a gorgeous appealing Look and a floaty chiffon mood.

All the glitz at the Glamour 2011 Awards

Kim Kardashian

Lily Aldridge

From sequins, to pleats and lace, splashes of white to full on cream, these ladies looked every inch the stars they are!

Noteworthy Necklines…

The parade of gorgeous stars in breathtaking outfits at Cannes is always enough to distract the Jones + Jones office and this year is no different. Amongst the stars and trend setters we noticed two looks you can use for inspiration for your next red carpet moment…

Gwen Stefani looked stunning in a Stella McCartney jumpsuit with her blonde bombshell hair. The revealing ‘v’ neckline is headline worthy, while the sheer sleeves are so on trend for this season and balance the outfit to ensure that just the right amount of skin is on show…

For sheer billowing sleeves and a neckline to turn heads in, look no further than the Jones + Jones Sadie Dress. Available in black and in white, the full flirty skirt adds to why this dress is showstopping…

If you’re more fashionista than film star, take note of Alexa Chung’s elegant style. You can never go wrong in a beautiful black dress at any event and Alexa combines a floaty feminine neckline with a tie belted waist and floor length skirt…

For a gorgeous flowing flounce trim at the assymetric neckline look no further than the Jones + Jones Lucy Dress

The Jones + Jones Lucy Dress in white

 Available in black and in white, the trim continues around the cuff of the single fitted sleeve adding the attention to detail we’re renowned for. Combine this with the full pleated skirt and you have a dress that will make photographers speechless (even if they’re not the paparazzi)!

You’ll find even more stunning dresses on our website here and on the Topshop website here and in our concessions in select Topshop stores.

Marvel in monochrome!

The Jones + Jones office have spent today in adoration of Chanel’s 2011/2012 Cruise collection. Presented yesterday in the south of France the collection was très chic and sophisticated –  great style can be as simple as black and white (well cream actually) and no-one knows this more than Karl Lagerfeld…

Black and cream dresses modelled yesterday

Take a leaf out of Karl’s book and channel monochrome sophistication now at Jones + Jones. From our best selling Vivienne dresses in both black and cream to the oh-so-glamorous Sadie Dresses and edgy Cristelle Dresses available in black and white, we have a gorgeous selection to add chic tones to your summer holiday wardrobe collection…

And if you really want to be on-trend, the mix of monochromes with the bright ruby red waistband means that the Michelle Dress not only combines the sophistication of classic black and white but also incorporates the trend of the season – colour blocking – aswell!

You can find all of the above chic styles and so many more on our website here or in our concessions in select Topshop stores now!

Jones + Jones in the DCU Fashion Show!

Jones + Jones were thrilled to be asked to feature in the DCU Fashion Show in association with Diet Coke, which took place on Tuesday evening this week!

Over 1000 students attended the show, which was in aid of  the Temple Street Children’s Hospital and featured twelve glamorous Jones + Jones looks alongside other high street and designer brands and ideas submitted for the young designer competition, for which students from fashion design schools in Ireland can enter garments to win a prize!

The theme of the show was ‘Cobble Couture’, which the DCU website described as “inspired by the array of styles seen every day on life’s catwalk: the streets” – they even included witty backdrops of a high street including a Spar shop!

Our amazing Jones + Jones Concessions Manager in Dublin was there to see all the glitz and glamour and she very kindly took some photos for us as well!
