For a long time, women were not allowed to even think about wearing (gasp!) pants. Why, pants are only for men! Well, thankfully, the days of outlawed pants and scarlet letters, and general tomfoolery, are long in the past, and we ladies are able to dress – or rather, clothe – ourselves in any way we see fit. This brings us to the topic of today’s post: mother of the bride pant suits – a more-than-acceptable, fashion-forward alternative to traditional mother of the bride dresses and mother of the groom dresses.
A stylish pair of mother of the bride dress pants, complemented by a matching jacket, is a fabulously modern alternative to traditional mother of the bride or groom dresses. And with the fashion forward options available at the Shoppe, you will look feminine and elegant – all while feeling comfortable and relaxed for the long day ahead. We have to admit, no matter how fun and beautiful a dress may be, wedding day festivities are all-day-long events, and comfort is key to ensuring you can fully enjoy this joyous occasion. Just think about the mingling, dancing, photos, and celebrating you have ahead of you–now choose between pants and a dress.
Having trouble deciding between a pant suit or skirt and jacket? Well, this very popular style by Cameron Blake gives you both! Cameron Blake 111673 comes with flattering wide leg pants and a tea length skirt. The skirt would be perfect for the ceremony, and you can change into the pants for the reception! This look is also easy to wear after the big day–not always true for MOB attire.
Shown in Navy Blue (left) and Stone (right), this MOB set is ideal for any wedding. Neutral colors are always acceptable for mom. Not only are they flattering, but neutral tones are on-trend for 2015. If you’re a plus size mother in search of figure-flattering attire that still embodies your style, this look comes in a wide ranges of sizes: 6-22W.
We recently started carrying a new designer line, Ursula of Switzerland, which features women’s pant suits and dresses that fit “real women.” The pant suit we carry from this line feature a flowy asymmetrical top with sheer, split sleeves. These MOB looks are designed in chiffon, but you can see that the fit you desire is still there. This look is perfect for women of all ages, and just think of the accessories you could wear to show off your personal style? Ursula knows how to make mother of the bride pant suits that are comfortably-chic (yes, it’s possible!).
The Ursula mother of the bride pants ensemble shown above is available in sizes 6-28, making it a fabulous option for a plus size woman.
Have you considered a bridesmaid style?
Did you know jumpsuits are on-trend in everyday-wear and bridal party attire? Alfred Angelo has designed two chic options for women with an eye for a style and an appreciation for comfort. Not only are these looks affordable ($179 each!), but they come in a wide variety of colors, allowing you to pick a shade you love. They’re easy to accessorize, and would look wonderful with a cardigan or shawl. Both looks have unique and figure-flattering silhouettes constructed from chiffon. When you stand with your legs together, people may mistake your outfit as a dress–until you start dancing, that is! I also love the pleats and details Alfred Angelo carefully considered. These fun, fashion-forward bridal party looks are perfect for mom, and can be worn after the big day. The style options are endless!
