Bruton Dress
Available in three stunning colour-ways, our Bruton dress oozes sophistication and style. Cut to enhance any figure, the turned up collar and longer sleeves keep it classic, whilst the high-lo fluted hem adds a modern twist. Choose bold jewellery if you want to skip the hat, and finish with neutral heels to elongate the legs.
