Deciding on a dress for your daughter’s wedding can be a very tricky thing. We are here to help with our Mother of the Bride & Mother of the Groom dress etiquette tips.

Wedding Guest Dress Etiquette | Mother of the Bride/Groom

DRESS ETIQUETTE | WEDDING GUEST / MOTHER OF THE BRIDE / GROOM

 

Deciding what to wear to a wedding is not easy, and if you are the Mother of the Bride or the Groom it can be a very daunting task! Luckily, we're here to break down the basics and help you navigate what, and what not, to wear as a wedding guest.



Wedding Guest Dress Etiquette

 

How should a modern wedding guest dress?

1. Dress Code Garden/Beach Casual: For Spring/Summer go for light colours and comfortable fabrics, a flowy printed or plain dress, accessorised with a matching bag and shoe. For Autumn/Winter choose deeper colours, and layer with a fitted jacket, you could look at a jumpsuit or pantsuit, or a longer length dress.

 

2. Lounge/Cocktail/After 5: Opt for a cocktail dress, or a more formal jumpsuit/pantsuit here. Wear with jewels and statement heels and clutch bag.

 

3. Black/White Tie: This is a formal dress code, opt for an elegant long gown or glamorous cocktail length dress.
 


Is it OK to wear black to a wedding?
Yes, especially After 5 weddings, as it's a formal evening colour.

 

For women, are any colours off limits? As a general rule, avoid white, however it's fine if worn with other colours, I would also recommend checking the bridesmaids' colours, to avoid wearing the same tone.


Mother of the Bride Dress Etiquette

 

Deciding on a dress for your daughter’s wedding can be a very tricky thing. “What colour should I wear, what length should my dress be and what fabric should I choose?” We are here to help with our Mother of the Bride & Mother of the Groom dress etiquette tips.

1. Share what you will be wearing with the Mother of the Groom: There is an old tradition that states that the Mother of the Bride should purchase her dress first and that it should influence what the Mother of the Groom will wear. But this might seem a little old fashioned now, so our advice is to give subtle hints to the Mother of the Groom of the type of colour you are thinking about wearing, it’s not a competition and flexibility is key. You could get your daughter to quietly pass on the details of your dress to the Mother of the Groom, or you could give her a call yourself. The Mother of the Groom might appreciate a little advance notice of what you are thinking of wearing so as to avoid clashing colours, overdressing or any other fashion faux pas.

 

2. Be thoughtful with colour: There are some colour restrictions that do apply to the Mother of the Bride’s dress; tradition states that you should not choose white and ivory, to avoid looking to close to the bride’s dress, unless it’s a white wedding and all the guests are asked to wear white!

Black gowns traditionally suggest mourning and red gowns were thought to be too flashy, but modern fashionistas know that a little black dress can be very flattering, and a good splash of colour at a wedding can be on-trend and uplifting. So we say choose a colour that suits you and your complexion and is right for the season. Talk to the bride before you start shopping for dresses, if your daughter is cautious about what colour you should wear, then opt for subtle timeless colours such as greys, lavenders, taupes or blues.

 

3. Consider the bridesmaid dresses. We suggest to check with your daughter, the bride, as to whether your dress should match the bridesmaid dresses. She might want all dresses to coordinate or she might just want the colours to compliment each other. Staying within a colour family could also be the way to go. If the bridesmaids are wearing light grey or lavender, then the Mother of the Bride could try a slate grey or eggplant. The bride might want to have a say about the style, length and formality of your dress so that it coordinates with the bridesmaid dresses so listen to her thoughts and try to accommodate where you can. Most importantly, the dress you choose should be something you will enjoy wearing for that very important day.

 

4. Start shopping early. Try on some dresses at least a few months before the wedding, and we suggest that you try to make a firm decision of what your Mother of the Bride dress will be at least one month before the big day. This way you will be able to let the Mother of the Groom and the bride know in good time for their planning.

 

5. Dress suitably. Dress for the time of day that the wedding takes place. If it’s a day wedding and reception then you might want to consider a midi length (just below the knee) or tea length dress (mid calf) in lace or with subtle beading. However if it’s an evening wedding and reception then you may want to dress up more formally - consider more a structured style and fabric with embellishments. A stunning full-length gown or a pantsuit could just the thing!

 



MOTHER OF THE GROOM DRESS ETIQUETTE
 

 

With some careful planning and chats with the bride and groom and Mother of the Bride, you as the Mother of the Groom can find the perfect outfit for your son’s special day. Here are our Mother of the Groom dress etiquette tips.

 

1. Take a cue from the Mother of the Bride. Tradition can be your friend here – custom states that the Mother of the Bride should buy her dress first and then tell the Mother of the Groom subtle details such as colour and style, so that you can complement each other. This will give you some great direction as to what you could choose. But don’t worry if this tradition is not being followed - opt instead for a classic dress shape (A-line, fit’n’flare, shift or wrap dress) in a flattering midi length, in a colour that complements your complexion, and you can’t go wrong.

 

2. Consider the colour. You might want to ask your son and daughter-in-law-to-be if your dress should somehow match the colour of the bridesmaid dresses. Some brides would like for both the mothers’ dresses to coordinate with the bridesmaid colour theme, and if so then this would be a great opportunity to find a colour that will complement the theme of the wedding. Your choice of colour doesn’t have to be matchy-matchy, but in the same colour family. For instance, if the bridesmaids are wearing periwinkle blue, then you could wear navy, or complement fuchsia bridesmaid dresses with a Mother of the Groom dress in plum. It might be safe to stay away from white, ivory or black, unless the bride and groom say it’s ok.

 

Some advice for the Step-Mother of the Bride or Groom. A stepmother is considered to be an honoured guest and should dress somewhere between a wedding guest’s outfit and a Mother of the Bride or Groom’s dress. Again if you are a stepmom, then choose a style and colour that suits and flatters your figure, perhaps opt for a more classic and formal shape and can’t go wrong.

3. The Inter-state Christmas Party

Need to go inter-state for your office Christmas party? Look no further! You'll want something travel friendly so that you arrive looking fresh and put-together.

Bonus Tip: Choose Winning Secret Santa Gifts!

Does the mandatory office secret santa have you stumped for a winning gift idea? Here are our bonus tips about how to choose a gift that will work every time!

1. Don't over spend: A definite way to make your colleagues feel uncomfortable is to spend significantly more than them! Make it thoughtful but simple and you'll keep everyone happy.

 

3. Don't get too personal: This is where gift vouchers can be the perfect gift! It's easy to choose gifts that we'd really like to receieve, but others might feel differently. Stray from making your gift too personal, especially if you don't yet know who's going to end up with it.

 

3. Do have fun with it: Remember, the point of the exercise is to add an element of enjoyment and festivity to the event, so rather than considering it a compulsory chore, have fun and keep your gift lighthearted!

Your Guide to Autumn Race Wear

YOUR GUIDE TO AUTUMN RACE WEAR

 

It's that time of year again! Time to start planning your Race Day outfit before hitting the fields in 2019. Get ready to don your fascinator, slip on your grass-friendly heels and pop the champagne as we unpack this seasons Race Wear fashion must-haves.


 

Keep it simple by planning your Race Day outfit well in advance. We recommend determining whether there's a particular dress code or theme for your racing event and then working your outfit around this. For example, many smaller and less publicised racing events may be less formal than nationally recognised ones (like the Melbourne Cup) but in most cases, you'll find the dress code to be 'Daytime Cocktail', with the more stand-out details, the better!

Bonus Tip: Choose Winning Secret Santa Gifts!

Does the mandatory office secret santa have you stumped for a winning gift idea? Here are our bonus tips about how to choose a gift that will work every time!

1. Don't over spend: A definite way to make your colleagues feel uncomfortable is to spend significantly more than them! Make it thoughtful but simple and you'll keep everyone happy.

 

3. Don't get too personal: This is where gift vouchers can be the perfect gift! It's easy to choose gifts that we'd really like to receieve, but others might feel differently. Stray from making your gift too personal, especially if you don't yet know who's going to end up with it.

 

3. Do have fun with it: Remember, the point of the exercise is to add an element of enjoyment and festivity to the event, so rather than considering it a compulsory chore, have fun and keep your gift lighthearted!

5 Wardrobe Staples Every Woman Should Own!

There are clothing articles that meet seasonal trends, and then there are staple pieces that stand the test of time. A well-rounded wardrobe has both! In this week's Wardrobe Fashion Style Report, we give you our top 5 wardrobe staples that every woman should have in her wardrobe.

1. A tailored pant

Every woman should have a pair of smart, tailored pants in her wardrobe! Whether it's in the office, out to dinner or a formal function, a good pair of slacks can tick all the boxes. Pair them with blouses, T-shirts, tailored jackets, or an eye-catching top.


Black Flare Pant | Joseph Ribkoff
AUD 179.95

Theia Pant | Joseph Ribkoff
AUD 229.95

2. A classic shirt

A simple, classic shirt that's easy to layer so that it can be worn as part of a wide range of ensembles is a must-have. This could be a traditional structured shirt or a simple blouse - the key is to avoid a busy detail to allow for mixing-and-matching.


Classic Layered Shirt | Marco Polo

Billie Shirt | Joseph Ribkoff
AUD 279.95

3. A pair of great fitting jeans

A good pair of jeans is a quintessential Australian lifestyle piece and a wardrobe must. Arguably the most versatile article of clothing you can buy, you'll get lots of wear out of a pair of great fitting jeans. A dark pair of denim will generally be the most versatile and can be worn day or night!


Marilyn Straight Leg | NYDJ

4. A weekend / travel dress

For times when you need to dress in a hurry, need holiday-friendly wear, or simply want to throw on something comfortable without foregoing style, a staple weekend dress (or multiple) is definitely an item every woman should own in her closet. Opt for plain colour or a fun print that's unlikely to date.


Paisley Patchwork Dress | Lauren T
AUD 79.95

Myna Inconvenience | Foil
AUD 89.95

5. A mix-and-match jacket

Lastly, every woman should have a smart jacket that's easy to team with any of the above articles. One that can be layered over dresses and tops, and paired with both casual and formal bottoms will be worth it's weight in gold for years to come! Contrasting floaty dress fabrics with structured jackets and other outerwear is always a winner.

Summer Dress Guide - Which Length Are You?

To help you sift through the many options, and as a fun way to help you figure out which styles are best suited to you this summer, we've put together this Summer Dress Length Guide!

The Playful: Above the Knee

The Refined: Knee-Length

Knee-length styles, especially those that fall just below the knee, can be extremely flattering on many shapes and sizes! This is because when a dress hem finishes at the narrowest part of the leg, it draws the eye to that area. Luckily, there are usually the greatest number of options in knee-length styles since they can be worn formally, casually and as work-wear!

The Polished: Midi-Length

Midi-length or tea-length dresses have well and truly made their come-back in recent years. A flattering, elongating length, these dresses create a polished look on anyone. Opt for a form fitting pencil shaped botton to channel prim-and-proper, or an A-line bottom to achieve a feminine look.

How to Dress for your Shape!

Just as we can select colours that best enhance our natural skin, hair and eye colouring, so too can we select clothing that accentuates certain areas of the body in order to best showcase our favourite features!

All body shapes and sizes are beautifully unique. Here at Wardrobe Fashion, we believe that it's important to love the skin you're in and, rather than hope to change your figure, use clothing to enhance and augment your best features. To help you do this, we've put together these tips about how to dress for your body shape, along with shop-able suggestions for each body type!

Common body shapes

The Circle

WHAT MAKES THE CIRCLE BODY TYPE SPECIAL

The Circle body type is typically well proportioned, not particularly curvy through the hip, and often without a very defined waist.

 

HOW TO DRESS FOR CIRCLE BODY

Loose fitting dresses are great choices for a Circle figure! Light weight fabrics with lots of movement are also generally very flattering for Circle body types, as are any items of clothing with a V-neckline. One great thing about the Circle figure is that there's no need to stray from clothing with lots of detailing in the bust area - highlight this area all you like!

 

WHAT TO AVOID

Clothing that cinches at the waist and garments that hug the abdomen.

 

Great styles for Circle body types

The Hourglass

WHAT MAKES THE HOURGLASS BODY SPECIAL

The Hourglass body type is usually well proportioned, curvy through the hip and bust, and has a well defined waist.

 

HOW TO DRESS FOR AN HOURGLASS BODY

Clothing with a v-neckline and structured tailoring are best for Hourglass figures. Garments that accentuate the hourglass's well defined waist are also a great choice for this figure type, such as high waistlines, as is anything that hugs the body, such as pencil skirts!

 

WHAT TO AVOID

Loose fitting garments or pieces that don't follow the lines of the body.

 

Great styles for Hourglass body types

The Column

WHAT MAKES THE COLUMN BODY SPECIAL

The Column body shape is one that is well proportioned, though generally without curves or noticeable definition to any particular area of the body.

 

HOW TO DRESS FOR AN COLUMN BODY

When dressing for a Column body type the goal is to add volume. One way to do this is through the use of collars and clean lines to create the illusion of curves. Another is to use thin belts to draw the eye to the waist. Flared skirts and anything voluminous is a winner for the Column figure.

 

WHAT TO AVOID

Complete figure hugging garments that don't add interest of volume.
