The Prettiest Mother-of-Bride and-Groom Dresses for a Fall Wedding
Just as a bride doesn't want to wear a mother of the bride dress that doesn't fit her style, her mother shouldn't feel pressured to find a gown she doesn't feel comfortable in—or feel like she has to wear a "gown" at all. There are so many styles and silhouettes to choose from, especially for fall. If you're the Jackie Kennedy, shift-wearing type, by all means, stick to a sleeveless sheath, dressed up with kitten heels, a bangle, and earrings. If black is your go-to color, get inspired by the timeless Audrey Hepburn and keep your look elegant in a black dress, whether a floor-length mermaid silhouette or velvet with flutter sleeves and a nipped-in waist. Rich jewel tones and metallics are also chic options for the cooler months; deep plums, berry, and navy also tend to flatter many skin tones.
With fall, of course, comes cooler weather, so we relish finding a long-sleeved dress for evening, as it means we won't have to wear a cardigan on top to stay warm. Luckily, designers have made long-sleeved options plentiful this season, from lace A-line dresses to those made in head-to-toe velvet, and wispy chiffon dresses with a slight 1970s influence. But whatever you choose, make sure it's a look you love.
