Jacques Vert Style Groups Brands SS17 Press Event

Sometimes I think I like press events more than shopping! To get that first look at the next season’s events fashion trends and new available colours. And then, of course, I like to post the event and share with you.

So today I’m sharing with you the Jacques Vert collections. Divided into four categories, I will give you a quick glimpse of what is to come for the next season, and we can all dream that soon the weather will be warmer, and we will be bearing our legs and wearing sandals again !
Some of these items shown here will be available very soon, so keep an eye on the Jacques Vert site

A riot of colours from the Jacques Vert brand. So much more fashion forward this year, with separates to mix and match. Luxurious materials and some beautiful prints. Gone are the days of just shopping this brand for your special wedding outfit. These pieces are your smart well cut designs to wear not just for weddings, but for any  event you have in mind when you want an elegant well-designed fashion item.

I love this dress. A subtle base with a handcrafted printed display of flowers.

Structured lace was featured for the next season. The white jacket in the middle of the photo was exquisite, as was the blue dress further along. I like the mix up of lace and laser cut sleeves.

Pastels, Neutrals and silver tones were also featured. I remember thinking I want that! I want that too! There was a long line lace Shacket which is available Here . This went straight on my Christmas wish list!

Getting onto Eastex. A completely different mix of colour here. Mustard and Navy are a great colour combination. There were various prints large and small that would all interact perfectly together for a smart tailored look. I really liked the three-quarter jacket at the back and the draping on the front of the mustard dress which will also be available in a printed material version

On the rails, you can see that the Navy and mustard along with white. Three-quarter length trousers were a feature, so it looks like they will still be on trend next year. I featured my Eastex trousers a while back in this post here I don’t think there is a week that goes by that I don’t wear them.

Is that a hint of Devore that I spy ? It is actually listed as a “Burnout” top. Very similar to Devore but not velvety. A hint of a new trend I think . Very pretty with the pink three-quarter trousers. 

Moving onto Dash. This is the most relaxed brand from the collection. Designed for women who don’t identify themselves by their age, but have a zest for life. Some beautiful summer prints here, perfect for that holiday . I like that the designs are loose fitting. comfortable for everyday wear.

Tha accessories to match the Dash collection really caught my eye, The prints were playful and vibrant.

Again, there were your classic colours available. Lots of Navy and White that can blend in with items that are already in your wardrobe. I loved the relaxed jumpsuit. 

And the striped jacket and Gilet I will not be forgetting. A good quality everyday jacket is what I need. I loved the Grey stripes, makes a change from Navy or Black. I also like this colour block jumper here

Next, we have Precis Petite. A brand that I have loved some 26 years ! That’s how many years I can work back to when I bought that first Precis item!  The statement board says it all. I have found many a perfectly fitting outfit from this brand.

The statement Blues were so eye-catching and the prints are always perfectly sized with the petite stature in mind.  

How stunning is this Roma Placement Print dress ? I love this colour combination

And this floral statement called Maggie. Listed as Bold Impactful and always beautiful.

This Green and Navy dress is called Peggy. The seasons floral number

Lots of texture and lace, I see that culottes are still going to be on trend. Handy to know that these are available for a petite size. I had problems finding the right length for me this year.

I liked the detailed shoulder on the Navy lace dress. And the long line jacket above with the large spots.

Jeff Banks has created another classic collection this year of pure fashion-forward elegance. I loved the striped dress at the back of the dress rail. Key SS17 trends are translated into modern and wearable hero pieces.

What do you think of what’s to come from the Jacques Vert brand? I’d love to know your thoughts. 

This is what I wore to the event. Of course, I was flying the flag for Eastex in the trousers that I mentioned earlier. I wanted to be comfortable for my journey, and as you can see I look a little bedraggled here after my long day ! As I said I don’t think a week has gone by that I haven’t worn these trousers here

Just a comfortable practical outfit consisting of a long sleeved white T and a silk scarf to brighten the outfit.

And of course, a host of goodies came home with me that I will be sharing in post’s to come.

XO Laurie

    Gorgeous – I'm a big fan of mustard and navy right now, and if I'm honest when I started reading your post I put this brand into the "wedding outfit" place in my head. Glad to see my preconceptions challenged, and I think that'll carry forward into my next shop. Thanks for sharing with #PoCoLo and for linking with us this year, it's been lovely to get to know more about you and your blog 🙂

      Lovely isn't it Mel? It's on my wish list x

    • December 19, 2016 / 10:44 pm

      Yes Jodie. I totally agree with your comment ! xx

  12. December 15, 2016 / 8:17 pm

    It's always exciting when a brand reinvents itself – I've always thought Jacques Vert had more potential than mother of the bride outfits. I've always loved Precis. I'm not strictly speaking petite (I'm 5'5) but their dresses and trousers are always the right length for me.
    You look very crisp and polished in your smart outfit.


    • December 19, 2016 / 10:43 pm

      They have totally re invented themselves Gail. So much more fashion forward. I have enjoyed watching the change in the brand. I have loved Precis for as long as I can remember. Lucky you for being 5'5 I'm a mere 5'2 ! xx

  13. December 15, 2016 / 11:03 am

    Wow! I love the Peggy and Maggie dress! They look a lot like the dresses we sold when I was still working. I really love this style, I will check their site!

    • December 19, 2016 / 10:40 pm

      I did think of you Nancy ! We share very similar taste, so I knew you would like this xx

    • December 19, 2016 / 10:39 pm

      My wish list is as long as my arm Jacqui ! x
