How to find a modern outfit for the mother-of-the-bride

How to find a modern outfit for the mother-of-the-bride: Image 1 Q – My mum wants to wear something age-appropriate for my wedding while still looking stylish and sexy. Do you have any ideas?

"Ladies, there is no age limit when it comes to dressing sexy. To all you soon-to-be mother-of-the-brides and grooms, please don’t feel you have to comply with the uniform dress and jacket. It’s important, however, to strike the right balance.

"Take some inspiration from red-carpet icons that are living proof of sexy beyond 60 such as Mery Streep, Jane Fonda, Helen Mirren and Diana Ross, to name just a few. They achieve this fabulous look with body sculpting dresses that embrace the hourglass silhouette. Incorporating a Bardot neckline will also help your mum embrace the latest trends and create a more dressy feel without the need for a jacket.

"Bold block colours, cut-outs, tailoring, textures of metallics or leather can also add a luxurious feel to a simple fitted number.

"It’s not all about sculpting the body if your mum has more of a pear figure, then fit and flare styles that hug the hips and fall away into flowing skirts are a great way to wear the latest catwalk looks. Light, lace sleeves are also great for arm coverage leaving her feeling confident and desirable.

"Let us not forget the accessories! Nothing screams sexy like a stiletto. For those summer months, the barley there sandal or strappy encased high heel is extremely stylish and alluring.

"We advise our clients to remain classic and timeless, but that’s doesn’t mean your mum can’t look fabulous and on-trend on your big day."
