John Charles mother of the bride clothing styles

You've heard of women who've turned heads on their daughter's big day for all the wrong reasons - so don't be like that. John Charles mother of the bride outfits include a wide range of styles, from classic dresses to sophisticated skirt suits. Follow these tips to find a style that will suit you:

  • Modesty is key: A mother of the bride dress usually features a high neckline, and the hemline is knee-length, or longer. This is not the moment to flash your assets.
  • Flatter your body shape: If you're anxious about your upper arms, a neat matching bolero can mask a world of problems.
  • Follow your daughter's lead: If her dress features lace, then a lace trim on your bodice will look lovely.
  • Remember, it's not a competition: You want the attention to be on your daughter and her lovely wedding gown.
Which colours work for mother of the bride dresses?

The most important thing to take into account is the colour scheme of the wedding. Ask your daughter first and foremost if she has any guidelines for you. She may well have a vision in her head of exactly how her big day should look, and how you'll fit into that dream. If she gives you the freedom to choose, remember the two golden rules: definitely don't wear white, as it will look like you're trying to upstage her, and stay away from black. If you're dressed for a funeral, it might give her new spouse the wrong idea.

Mother of the bride skirts and jackets vs dresses

A mother of the bride suit is a good alternative for women who don't particularly enjoy wearing dresses. John Charles suits are available in gorgeous silk and other luxurious fabrics, in sophisticated cuts that set them apart from your standard office wear. As a mother of the bride dress usually features a straight cut, without much flare at the hips, a suit can be a wise choice if you're sensitive about fabric clinging to your tummy.

Which mother of the bride accessories should you choose?

In the John Charles mother of the bride collection, you'll find plenty of matching accessories to pull your outfit together. A bolero, shrug, or topper looks good worn over your dress. As it's a special day, why not add a fascinator, to give you some extra pizazz?
