Q – My hubby-to-be and I are asking all our guests to dress in festive colours, and my mum wants to do the same while standing out from the crowd. Do you have any ideas of what she could wear?
"Pantone is the universal language for colours, and this season’s trends have a lot to offer especially when talking about bold, festive shades. Forget about the understated soft golds, icy blues and silvers, your mum wants to make a statement, and if traditional tones are what she’s after then the sultry shade of samba red or ultramarine jewelled green are the way to go. Keep in mind this may be a go-to for many of your guests, so for a slightly more amplified look, opt for a less conventional mandarine red or turn up the dramatics with an exuberant orange, styled alongside gold accessories.
"If your mum is looking for a cooler shade, then look for a strong blue which is vibrant and rich, but don’t forget these colours demand to be worn with confidence."
