Perfect for grandmothers, the mother-of-the-bride, mother-of-the-groom, and women of a certain age, these dress suits and dress set ensembles are sophisticated, stylish, and refined, so you can focus on the event at hand rather than worry about your outfit.
Made by a woman, for women, these looks were crafted to bring out the best in you, but who is award winning fashion designer Ivonne Dome? Born and raised in Puerto Rico, Ivonne always knew she would be a clothing designer and attendant the prestigious Parson’s School of Design in New York City before getting her start in the industry at a well known international lingerie company. She joined the Mon Cheri family in 1999 and has since worked on a number of different collections in addition the Capri line, including Montage, Social Occasions, and Cameron Blake. Her fashions draw from the scenery she grew up loving, with tropical floral touches, and flowing fabrics that feel soft against the skin. Known for her unique use of beadwork and embroidery, and flattering cuts, her goal is to make all women who wear her designs feel special.
“I work hard to create social occasion pieces that evoke the positive, daring feelings that everyday casual wear often stifles. There’s something about wearing a gorgeous social occasion gown or suit that allows a woman to live out her most glamorous fantasies. Everyone deserves to feel special.” - Ivonne Dome
This new collection of two-piece dress sets was made with the mature woman in mind. The more living you do, the less it becomes all about showing skin, sometimes you just want something to wear that is effortlessly chic. The Capri collection is it. Offered in a range of different styles, including pants suits, each set includes a matching jacket which gives you plenty of options for arm coverage.
Fabrics include sheer chiffon, poly blends that easy to wear and care for, and burnout floral, printed chiffon, lace, and tonal prints which create a refined, monotone look. The fit is easy, softly shaped, loose fitting, flowy, and comfortable to wear. The jackets flow and move, with wispy sheer sleeves and hems that fall past the hip line. The skirt lengths show just enough leg, hitting either just below or just above the knee. There is also a tea length style that falls a little bit lower, and a pants set with a matching jacket coverup.
You’ll love wearing these looks so much you’ll want to wear them everywhere, and you can! A Capri two-piece set is perfectly wearable any time you need to look put together in an instant. Wear your set to a wedding, cruises, luncheons, brunch, Easter, bridal or baby showers, church, or just going out on the town. These wear-again formal styles could easily make a second appearance just about anywhere that requires a dressed up look for day or evening.
Each is set features two separate pieces which are both loose fitting and easy wearing, never tight or clingy. Modest necklines are cut slimmer around the edges rather than deeper, to create a long, swan-like neck. Flounced A-line skirts move freely about the legs, so you can walk or dance the night away effortlessly, without feeling restricted. The billowy skirts and a slim silhouettes magically float over an imperfections, skimming the hips, tummy, and thighs, to give an impeccably smooth line from every angle. Each piece is made from wearable fabrics with a touchable soft feel that will not irritate the skin. Color and size selections vary according to each piece.
In addition to the numerous solid color dresses, a search farther back into the collection brings us a tropical jungle of flowers and unique printed looks. Harkening back to colorful foliage of Puerto Rico, where Ivonne Dome grew up, the collection is heavy on lush floral prints and pops of color. Several looks are offered in whimsical prints with bold, watercolor inspired splashes of color that are sure to turn a few heads. Another features an abstract print in classic black and white, reminiscent of a charcoal sketch. These styles break the mold of drab mother-of-the-bride dresses and social occasion gowns, proving that every woman can look ravishing at any age.
Tiered skirts fall in soft flowing layers and add a unique and unexpected little detail. It’s little touches like these that make you feel extra special when you wear Capri by Mon Cheri dresses.Lengths for these gowns range from just above knee length all the way down to ankle length for every level of formality and comfort. The collection also includes a vast selection of tea length gowns, which flatter, hitting at mid calf for a modest finish, perfect for wearing with a backless or strappy low heel shoe.
We’re also loving the trapeze dresses found at the latter end of the collection. Chic, stylish, and comfortable all at once, this style is especially perfect for the lady who lunches, as it’s forgiving fit is draped and breezy. These dresses have a loose, shapeless fit that flows all around the body. Their bright colors and free-form patterns are eye-catching and artistic, giving you that couture style of something you will not find anywhere else. Several feature a sheer overall that covers the arm, slit on the top of the shoulder and at the wrist to drape beautifully over top.
With these chic sets, you can have full coverage and still look stylish. Long sleeve and sheer sleeves will help you feel confident and at ease. The addition of matching long jackets on most styles takes the guesswork out of finding a matching coverup and can be removed if the temperature rises or you’d like to change up your look. They also make great accessories to wear with your existing wardrobe to play up and revive your old favorites.
The jackets boast sheer sleeves on most looks, while the dresses themselves are fully lined. Some have a straight horizontal hem along the bottom while others have an asymmetrical finish which plays upon the layered effect and can also be tied in the front to create an entirely different look or define the waist.
If a jacket isn’t your cup of tea, some looks really go bold with a caped shawl overlay. In sheer or lace, these feature uneven hems that flatter and slim the waistline while offering not only a hint of coverage to the arms and midsection, but a regal and commanding presence.
