Luxe, Laid Back Tailoring with Fenn Wright Manson

Style Theory: Elegant, luxurious and beautifully cut, Fenn Wright Manson is the epitome of beautiful, British fashion.  With digital prints, sharp graphics and painterly brushstrokes on chic, expertly cut fabrics the look is both classic with an updated twist.
Fenn Wright Manson Orlaya Dress £169
No expense is spared on fabrics with sumptuous crepe de chines, lace,  silks and the Orlaya white Irish linen dress is no exception. On the hanger the dress looks slightly shapeless but as soon as you put it on the cut of the dress skims your curves, with beautiful details like a button at the back to pull it in and slightly shape it at your waist, a longer curved hem at the back and pintucks down the front ensure that the lines and details of the dress flatter.


The Orlaya dress has a cotton underslip that is connected with small poppers so the straps do not slip off your shoulders. It is a dense, Irish linen so hangs beautifully and you can unbutton the nemline as high as you dare. On warm summer holiday evenings, roll up the sleeves, slip on a pair of strappy tan sandals and add a boho inspired coloured clutch for a laid back look . This is a beautiful, luxurious dress and as soon as you slip it on you will feel comfortable, chic and extremely elegant.

Fenn Wright Manson Linnea Dress £118
If you are looking for a lightweight, silk dress perfect for a day at the races, a wedding or for work,  the Linnea Linnea shirt dress fits the bill. It is 100% silk and light as feather, incredibly comfortable and again cut beautifully with a slightly longer back which is incredibly flattering on your legs. The blue and black geometric print makes for a striking look and can be worn with a huge array of accessories from black to navy to orange for a pop of colour. The fact this doesn't crush is a huge bonus to an lazy ironer like me! I paired the dress with nude heels to elongate my legs and the Magnolia jacket for a dressed up look.



The Magnolia Jacket is simply and beautifully cut, with 3/4 length sleeves and shaped at the waist for a clean, crisp outline. I love the fact it can be worn both with a smart look and casually with distressed jeans, a grey tee and some animal print heels for a laid back, going out look. The smart casual look works for me every time, completely in my comfort zone!

Fenn Wright Manson Magnolia Jacket £149
When you put on an item of clothing that has been cut well and made with beautiful fabric you just feel, well, a little more sophisticated and grown up and this is exactly how I felt when I put on the Fenn Wright Manson pieces. Admittedly these are pricier than I would normally wear but for a special occasion it is sometimes worth pushing the boat out as you can wear the pieces time and time again.

Thank you to Fenn Wright Manson for the working with me on this piece and giving me the opportunity to wear these fabulous items.

Do you have luxurious items in your wardrobe that make you feel quite grown up and sophisticated, what items do you feel it is important to spend a little more on, or are you an accessories girl? As always I would love to hear your thoughts and comments, until next time Frances xx

  1. The first, white dress is absolutely beautiful! Often, white "floaty" pieces can be a little shapeless and so hard to wear, but that looks such a lovely shape.

  3. The white dress has got to be one of the loveliest summer dresses I've seen this season. And that jacket/distressed jeans combo is the epitome of easy chic - where are the jeans from btw? Great selection.

  5. I adore the back of the white dress, making it a touch different. The jacket is a perfect fit for you, I absolutely love it and your simple styling. I use to have a brown oversized wrap cardigan from FWM which was an old favourite, I had it for years ..... good quality.
