STYLE ADVICE: I’m looking for a mother of the bride outfit

Posted on: February 16, 2015

QUESTION: My daughter is getting married in 6 weeks and I can’t find anything to wear. I fancy monochrome but don’t want to look like mutton dressed as lamb but also don’t want to look too frumpy. As to budget, not Primark and not Dior. I usually shop at M&S,House of Fraser, Debenhams, John Lewis (or local charity shops!!). Any advice or suggestions would be most welcome.

ANSWER: Thanks for getting in touch. Your daughter’s wedding is a milestone event to mark with a fabulous outfit and great memories. We hope to get you looking wonderful and feeling comfortable for the whole occasion. If you take a look at your fashion fingerprint you’ll see what items suit you and why. For you it’s all about creating some balanced proportions, and with that in mind here are some items we hope you’ll love.

1. Dress, M&S £75:- Your monochrome theme is a great one and can always be adjusted to suit you. You can either colour block your separates or g for a monochrome print. Black might be an unconventional choice for a wedding but the right accessories will have you looking chic and stylish. This fit-and-fare dress from M&S cinches in your waist and has a gorgeous lace detail on the skirt as well as a satin waist tie:
