With such a wealth of industry experience we of course consider ourselves an authority on the subject of mother of the bride and groom outfits. However, we’re happy to admit that much of our inspiration comes directly from the wonderful designers and dressmakers that supply us with the garments that make up our personal collection, without whom we’d of course be unable to operate.
It can be difficult to know where to start when first facing the huge collection of dresses, hats, shoes and accessories we keep in stock. That being said, leading designers like Condici have earned a well-deserved reputation for excellence in the field and therefore represent an ideal starting point.
We’re extremely proud of the Condici mother of the bride and groom outfits we stock and make a point of listening with a keen ear when such a prestigious partner offers any advice. Echoing our very sentiments quite identically, Condici has published a series of simple guidelines aimed at anyone looking to pick up the most appropriate and outstanding mother of the bride outfits in London and Manchester, which feature a handful of essential tips we’d like to share with you.
For Curvier Figures
Complimenting a curvy figure with the right dress can lead to a result that’s simply jaw-dropping – it’s just a case of knowing how to make it happen. According to Condici, the secret lies in ensuring that the jacket chosen to compliment your dress is long enough to extend past the hips, which in turn transforms the silhouette with a more streamlined, slender effect.
For those concerned with the shape or size of their waist or bottom in particular, Condici highly recommends choosing a longer jacket over any straight dress.
For Petite Figures
As for petite women, the secret according to Condici lies in accentuating the best attributes of your figure by wearing a shorter jacket that’s considerably more fitted to your size. This again has a marked effect on the overall silhouette created and can be flattering in all the right places.
Striking the Right Balance
Another key tip from Condici concerns the matter of striking the right balance – as in how to look as wonderful as possible without crossing any of the rather blurred lines. Condici mother of the bride and groom outfits are designed to be understated and elegant, as opposed to trendy or fad-inspired. In addition, it’s crucial to make a choice that doesn’t lead to any clashes with the bride’s dress, or the mother of the groom.
A Word on Hats
Last up, Condici’s final word concerns how to choose the ideal hat to complement the look you’ve chosen. Hats should of course not be worn on the back of the head, but instead on the crown. In terms of design, all that matters is a hat that’s well-suited to your individual complexion and the rest of your outfit as a whole. And if you’re ever told you look great but don’t feel great, don’t forget that you’re the boss and it’s your opinion than matters most!
