Our Amixi range of accessories has everything you need to help you find your own style. Want more volume? Add a sophisticated underskirt. Prefer a little more sparkle? A glitzy belt will do the trick! And if you want extra coverage and support, or to create two different looks, then our detachable straps or a beautiful bridal jacket might be the answer.
Bridal jacket or straps?
Straps are a great choice if you need a little extra support or a subtle amount of coverage. They’re also good for flattering the shoulders if the strapless look isn’t for you. Alternatively, a bridal jacket offers even more coverage, perhaps for a formal wedding or a winter celebration. Plus, you can use it to create two looks in one. Simply remove your bridal jacket in the evening, while adding a gorgeous belt or redoing your hairstyle with one or two sparkly clips. Then you’re ready to party the night away!

Straps to make your look unique
Alternatively, if you want less coverage or are having a summer wedding, then you might prefer straps. Our 3.5in wide Lana straps are made from intricate beaded floral lace in a light champagne colour and offer softly draped coverage and support. They’re very flattering, particularly to the upper arm area, and add a romantic touch to any gown.
Our ivory Cara straps are slightly slimmer, at 3in wide, and also feature beautiful beaded lace, making them the perfect addition to an ivory strapless gown.
Lastly, our slim Kora straps are a simple and sophisticated way to change your look. Made from exquisite ivory lace, these delicate straps add a touch of prettiness to the shoulders while giving extra support to your dress.
If faux fur is too much but straps aren’t quite enough, then a lace bridal jacket is a great alternative. It’s also the perfect way to have two different looks. You can wear the more formal jacket in the daytime, then remove it in the evening to reveal a strapless party look. Our Katherina lace jacket is a stunning choice for a traditional wedding. The elegant V-neckline and the Chantilly lace edging combine to give this classic bolero a stylish modern twist.
Fashion-loving brides will adore on-trend Santana. This gorgeous bolero features sparkly long sleeves with metallic accents and crystal buttons. It’s the perfect way to add extra detailing to a simple gown. It also comes in both champagne and ivory, so you can choose the best shade to suit your look.

Finally, we have our popular Monaco bolero in contemporary matt Mikado. This stylish ivory jacket really will lift your look to a whole new level, with it’s elegant three-quarter-length sleeves and its sleek crisp lines.
