8 Top Style Tips for Mothers-of-the-Bride

Make sure mum looks her best with these on-trend occasion wear tips from Regine Ellis, creative director at John Charles

1. Pastel perfection

“Pretty pastels are going to be big news for S/S 13. Lilac is top of the list, especially for John Charles, and we’ve worked it into a number of our latest styles, such as a beautiful laser-cut dress available with a range of different jacket styles. Soft metallic silver is also key which is great news as it’s an easy-to-wear transitional colour that effortlessly takes you from day to evening.”

2. Opposites attract

“For MOB’s who want to make a bold fashion statement, pairing contrasting colours like rich navy and crisp ivory is making a chic comeback next season and there’s going to be a wide range of vivid abstract designs if you like prints.”

3. Back to the Sixties

“This season's cuts remain slim-fitting, a naturally feminine figure inspired by the classic British tailoring of the Sixties. It was a revolutionary time in women’s fashion and I searched through hundreds of photos of Sixties glitterati to get some inspiration. Hints of this can be seen in the Jackie O-esque classic jackets with rounded collars and slim-fitted skirts that we have created this season.”
