Styling Tips for Mothers of the Brides & Grooms

The Shift Dress
If you're looking for an elevated version of a timeless silhouette, the shift dress with attached jacket is the perfect option for you. 
This formal style is forgiving in the waist and skims over the figure without hugging it. An attached overlay jacket adds much desired coverage and can be hooked at the neck or worn open. 
The bias cut and knee length allow for comfort and easy movement, while retaining an air of elegance. This chic evening dress style is perfect for all mothers. 
Pair with gold sandals and add a sleek gold drop earring to keep this look classic and elegant.
The Rosette A-Line Gown 
For an always figure-flattering and comfortable silhouette, try an A-line gown, like this style crafter in sparkling Rosette lace. 
The short sleeves offer coverage to maximize comfort without sacrificing style. A beautiful illusion neckline feels both youthful and conservative, perfect for moms of any age. 
Ornate lace adds drama to this timeless silhouette, making this style the epitome of elegance. The rose hue shown here looks gorgeous against all skin tones; but this formal dress style comes in many colors, making it the perfect choice in any season for any Mother of the Bride or Groom
Pair with a simple silver sandal to keep the attention on the evening gown. The sequin embroidered lace adds shimmer, so you won't need much jewelry. We suggest a delicate silver bracelet and a matching clutch.  
The Mock Two-Piece Gown with Matching Jacket
A classic mock silhouette is flattering on all body types, offering ample belly coverage while still providing shape. An A-line skirt like the one shown below is generous through the hip and won't hug your form. 
A formal dress style with a removable jacket takes your look from ceremony to celebration with effortless ease. 
Tried and true, Mothers of the bride can never go wrong in navy blue! It works beautifully on every skin tone. This long dress style also comes in other colors to coordinate with any bridal party palette. 
Pair an evening gown like this with a delicate silver or navy heel. Finish the look with crystal or navy drop earrings and a sparkling silver clutch purse.
