For a Mother of the Bride (or groom) taking on the latest fashion trends can become a juggling act…
You’re already trying to balance fashion and practicality, so throwing trends into the mix can turn the simple task of dressing for the wedding into an overwhelming ordeal.
However, here at WJOnline, we firmly believe that NO mother of the bride or groom should ever have to compromise her look for the sake of comfort. With a boundless variety of outfits and styles available, there’s no reason why you shouldn’t be taking on the trends you dream of wearing on your child’s big day. So we’re showing you how.
Contrary to popular belief, peplums do not make your bum look enormous. In fact, they do the opposite.
By cinching in your waist, peplums give the illusion of an hourglass silhouette, creating enviable proportions. MOBs should keep it classy with the subtlest flare on a simple shift dress.
The new suit
Trouser suits no longer have to conjure up the image of corporate-wear. This season’s matching trouser/jacket combos are slim fitting and well tailored to balance the masculine edge of the outfit with your feminine curves. A floral suit paired with nude accessories will make you a spring wedding sensation.
We’re not talking jazz hands and feather headbands here – avoid looking like a novelty fancy-dress victim by incorporating the more understated aspects of 1920s dressing. Try out a feather skirted dress or a shimmering sequin dress with a scalloped hem.
Be daring for this season’s wedding and make a statement in the boldest, brightest, colour you can possibly find. Most MOBs usually make a dash for the pastel or neutral tones, but as these can leave you looking washed out, we recommend braving a bright colour that brings out the best in your hair and skin tone.
