The Key to Differentiate And Accentuate
Enhance a simple dress with eye catching accessories
There are 2 ways to do this.
First way: Choose a main color and
pick accessories either of the same color.
You can pick up to two tones darker or lighter than the main color.
Because it is your daughter’s wedding, you can afford to be adventurous in your selection of accessories. That means not picking everyday accessories (accessories that can be worn in everyday clothes).
Consider a chic hat, some feathers, pearls, unusual brooch, gloves, flowers…
Second way: Pick two main colors. These colors either match well or is a suitable contrast.
Pick your elegant mother of bride dress and dress accessories according to those colors.
A suit is very becoming as an elegant mother of bride dress.
A good suit can be the best friend of an elegant wardrobe.
The shape and structure of your suit enhances your posture and womanly curves.
It is tasteful, appropriate and elegant.
Though I must caution you to select a suit with soft pastel colors otherwise it will look too businesslike.
