It adds a splash of colour and fun amongst a sea of black. Plus, if you have a destination wedding to attend in a warmer location, they make the perfection option.

Our Hanni Diva Foam Dress in teal, is made with polyester silk and features a hand beaded bust, and fan cap sleeves. Small gathering around the waist, gives the dress amazing fall and movement.

Aqua-dress1For a brighter option our Hanni Mozelle Tiffany Dress, is a strapless design, which features small pleating over the bust to create a flattering detailed look. Get this dress winter ready by adding a wrap or cape.

Aurora Iris 12.     Pretty Pastel. Dresses in Pinks, Lavender, Green and Ivory will give you a feminine look this Autumn/Winter. They can be beautifully accessorised with a faux fur wrap or cashmere cape in white, silver or caramel. Try wearing pastel colours in a long flowing dress, for a more romantic style. Our Hanni Aurora Iris Dress features; Pale Mauve silk, with Aurora plum sequinned detail at bodice and Mushroom silk georgette drape/bow at front.

3.     Romantic Red. Stand out in a sea of pastels, in an amazing bold red dress. From bright red, to deep burgundy, a red dress will look stunning against an autumn backdrop. Red is one of the easiest colours to add to your wardrobe and brighten your complexion, read more on how to pull off wearing red, and view our gorgeous collection of red dresses, in our blog ‘The Red Dress’.

4.     Winter White. White is officially this year’s trendiest colour, with white on white especially popular. For a long time it was considered a faux pas to wear white to a wedding, this was reserved for the bride only. But in recent years, many couples have been opting for an all-white bridal party, and even an all-white wedding.

White doesn’t need to be saved for weddings; it’s a classic and sophisticated colour for many formal occasions and black tie affairs. Team our Hanni Juliette Dress or our Hanni Kiara White Dress, with a tuxedo for your partner to achieve the ultimate Hollywood glamour look.
