Long snake stich coat with silver metallic threads shimmering within the monochromatic hues defining a textured A-line coat that’s visually shaped with an angled zigzag pattern. It features a front button fastening, patch pockets, a back vent, and an optional belt. Made of rayon/cupro/polyester. By the Italian designer Missoni.
I find this coat elegant but a bit sad looking and I am not a fan of the zigzag pattern.

Sapphire blue floor-length gown hand embroidered with ornate silver beading, featuring a full gathered chiffon skirt trailing along the floor, a boat neckline and long sleeves. The gown is completed with a sheer shawl in matching blue with sparkling beading. The beading was done by artisans in India. It is a bespoke piece by Jenny Packham.
I like the effect of the skirt of this gown as well as the long beaded sleeves and corsage. I however prefer it without the shawl, as it makes the whole look a bit tacky.

Fitted silhouette rich cotton mix silver tweed long sleeved dress featuring a pencil skirt, peplum detail at the waist, a V neckline and a signature gold zip at the back. It is by The Fold.
I really like this dress, it features a lot of things that I find appealing, like the fitted silhouette, the simplicity and the details which give its originality. The colour is nice but would need contrasting accessories to prevent it looking too bland though.
