A daughter’s wedding is the most important day in a mother’s life, so it's only fitting that she should be just as fashion-forward as the bride! Say goodbye to dull ideas about how an MOB (and MOG) should dress and enter a world of exquisite details, sophisticated silhouettes, and figure-flattering designs. Moms, these popular styles are guaranteed to make you look (and feel) gorgeous on your daughter or son's big day.
Trend #1: Pastels
Spring into style with pastels! This season, blush pinks, mint greens, seafoam blues, and pale yellows are ruling the bridal runways. MOBs, the palette possibilies are endless.
Trend #2: Lace
The Kate Middleton Effect on wedding gowns last season applies to mother of the bride dresses now as well. Designers have been working around-the-clock to breathe new life into this classic, everlasting trend. Try a delicate lace sleeve, which covers up while still showing some skin.
Trend #3: Capes
A true throwback to the 70’s, capes and capelets add some vintage chic to MOB styles. These romantic designs have been spotted everywhere this spring, from bridal runways to the red carpet. Moms will wow wedding guests in these bedazzled and asymmetrical options.
Trend #4: Neutrals
This timeless color palette has the ability to transcend any season and looks great in many different styles. MOB's can channel celebrities like Charlize Theron and Heidi Klum, who showed off nude gowns on the red carpet this award season. Ask the bride how she feels about this hue before you start shopping, and always view the color in person, so that you can ensure it won't be too light for her big day.
Trend #5: Tiered Skirts
Tiered skirts are an ultra-flattering way to add flare to your MOB gown, and they're available in a myriad of pretty colors and fabrics. The layers of soft chiffon drape perfectly for a dreamy, romantic look. Add a brooch to get some extra sparkle for an evening wedding.
Trend #6: Sheer Sleeves
Being the mother of the bride, you can be sure you will receive a lot of attention on your daughter’s big day. It’s important to consider how much skin you want to show and what is flattering to your body type. You can't go wrong with any of these striking sleeves, which are subtly sexy and cover up any trouble spots.
Moms, which of these trends are you most likely to wear at your daughter or son's upcoming wedding?
