Jackets, Wraps & Separates
The art of constructing a perfect jacket has almost disappeared. With so many designers obsessed with the “deconstructed” look Modes prides itself on representing a handful of designers who know how to cut a jacket and tailor it to flatter all figure types. Limited designs, including coats, boleros and fitted jackets can be also be made to order onsite in a selection of colours and sizes.
Select from an extensive collection of wraps and shrugs with designs in silk, chiffon and silk organza made to complement our dresses and separates.
We have a huge selection of skirts and trousers (full length and knee length) in sizes 8-22. Beaded cami tops and evening jackets add that touch of formality to basic black separates.
These come in a range of prices and mostly in the classic metallic colours.
