Mother of the bride collections may be classic, but their styles change with the trends too! Here are some of our favourites for 2018…
Although wedding hats are no longer the staple they once were, we’re expecting that the royal wedding will bring on a surge in popularity for larger, more formal hats and hairpieces! Whether it’s a fascinator, statement clip or full hat, mums are diving into this trend headfirst.
From embracing tradition to breaking it, we’re seeing more pale creams and neutrals in their mother of the bride collections. We’re putting this trend down to the recent trend for bridesmaids in ivory or white – why not have your entire bridal party in cream or ivory?
From classic jacquard to painterly, bold florals, mother of the bride styles are leaning away from plain and towards patterns. Metallic embroidery works well for weddings in the cooler months, while you can’t go wrong with florals for spring and summer.
This is a big occasion for the mothers as well as you, so encourage them to stand out from the other guests! This season we’re expecting the tropical neon trend to translate to shades of hot pink, corals and chartreuse for mums.
The tailored jacket is an absolute classic, but there are plenty of alternatives if these aren’t your mum’s style. Floaty chiffon shawls, cropped, minimal jackets and faux fur throws are just some of the cover-ups we’ve seen in recent collections.
It’s not just brides who want to show off their figures – mothers often want a balance between fashionable and flattering, too. The peplum is perfect for this, as it’s a chic design detail that highlights the waist without being too much of a statement. Expect to see them on skirts and dresses over the next few seasons.
Another trend that has made its way over from the bridal catwalk to mums is the off-the-shoulder neckline. A versatile cut that ranges from deep vintage-inspired bardots to the more modest bateau, an off-the-shoulder bodice puts a modern twist on a traditional silhouette.
