There is a great deal of baggage that comes with being a mother-of-the-bride. Historically, they’d be dressed in a tailored two-piece complete with a large hat and fussy string of pearls. The outfit would be age-appropriate and no way draw attention away from the bride herself (God forbid). But thankfully, these old-fashioned tropes are becoming a thing of the past, and brides are now wanting their mums to celebrate their individuality by dressing up in something that makes them feel their best.
Obviously, this doesn’t mean you can’t go for something traditional. Just look at our ultimate mother-of-the-bride muse Doria Ragland, who rocked a tailored co-ord and pillbox hat for her daughter’s wedding. The key to the success of this look lies in the way she balanced out the classic lines of her suit with a contemporary mint-green hue and simple accessories.
