A sweeping statement

The floor-length, A-line skirt is a masterpiece of sweeping satin and the smart ruching is very flattering across the hips and tummy area. Accessorise this look with our classic Deco comb and our glittering Estella belt, to highlight your neat waist. Our Langley veil, with its sprinkle of diamantés, has just the right amount of subtle sparkle to finish the look.
