Separates and layering literally is an art. It should be worthy of a degree because creating a capsule collection that can be met perfectly with every other piece within it’s family is simply quite amazing.

Designer Charlie Brear nails it – and we’re a proud stockist.

The basics begin with the slip dresses (which of course can be worn alone.) However if you’re not feeling brave enough the options of creating your wedding day look are endless. Add a beaded top, a lace sleeve, a flowing chiffon skirt or quite simply a beautiful pearl belt. And what’s more? Whip it all off and start again for the evening reception and wow your guests into a total state of shock as you rock up in the sassiest silk gown ever! YAS!

We’ve used the ‘Payton’ slip to show you how versatile your wedding look can really be. Payton features a deep v neck line with matching back, made from gorgeous sandwashed silk that’ll glide over your skin (like new bed sheets and freshly shaven legs!)

Now this is where the fun part starts… let’s add layers! We’ve showed you some of our favorite combinations in the photos, the beauty of Charlie Brear is that no two brides look the same. Whether you’ve picked the same slip and overdress as another bride is irrelevant – the way you style your wedding dress is what makes your wedding dress… kapiche?

Charlie Brear appeals to the ‘modern’ bride. It’s clean, minimal and understated. It’s ‘cool’ on so many levels and can be adapted to really suit you and your personality. The real appeal is that you can switch up your look so easily and effortlessly – whip off a skirt or add a sleeve and you’ll turn your look upside down within seconds.


Now which pieces to choose? We guarantee you’ll fall in love with the beautiful fabrics and delicate lace!
