Yet to find an outfit for your daughter’s big day? Modern, flattering and undeniably elegant, we present five of the chicest dresses for mother-of-the-brides, taken straight from our latest collection. Moving away from the conventional, lace fabrications, floral prints and embroideries garner a new reputation with these hand-picked pieces, proving that you don’t have to forgo fashion-forward styling when it comes to creating the perfect wedding look.
1. The Lace Dress
Lace doesn’t have be overly demure. Styled with a semi-sheer insert on the bodice, as well as an asymmetric hemline with a peekaboo lining, this bold blue design is anything but old-fashioned. Its fitted waist is universally flattering, while the sweeping midi length is in line with the season’s most-coveted silhouettes. Tonal accessories answer a decidedly more modern style memo, while a sleek cover-up makes a perfect choice for church ceremonies.
2. The Hanky-Hem Dress
For the mother-of-the-bride who wants to make a statement, a red dress makes a boldly beautiful choice for the big day. To soften its look, opt for a midi shape with gently-draped sleeves and a hanky hemline that’ll move elegantly on the dance floor. Heighten its standout status with an oversized fascinator, offsetting the look with gold strappy heels.
3. The Asymmetric Dress
The season’s obsession with hemlines doesn’t end there. Spliced with coloured stripes, the asymmetric skirt on this black midi dress instantly elevates its simple silhouette, while placement floral prints lend it a more feminine feel. Complement the pops of pinks with co-ordinating accessories, covering bare shoulders with a classic black shrug.
4. The Mesh Dress
How to make florals feel more current? Let your focus fall on mesh. Designed in a close-cut shift silhouette, this knee-length number in black is brought to life with embroidered and printed florals in vivid colourways, and finished with sheer detailing for a modern twist. Add instant polish with a delicate feather fascinator.
5. The Embroidered Dress
Introducing the occasion dress with red carpet appeal. Soft white blooms cover the entirety of this figure-framing midi, designed with a ruffled mermaid hem to create a cool, contemporary aesthetic. For formal ceremonies, style it with a cropped jacket and complete the look with metallic silver accessories.
