Deep Rich Colors are Elegant For the Fall MOB

Bright colors are cheery, pastels are soft and pretty, but it’s the deep, vibrant colors of fall that are the most elegant of all. If your son or daughter is getting married anytime from September-March, you can’t go wrong choosing a Mother of the Bride/Groom dress in a shade like Navy, Burgundy, Brick, Plum, Brown or Dark Green.

These earthy Autumn colors are not only sophisticated, but they are super slimming, too, when worn head-to-toe. This stunning crystal embellished green gown is a great example of what is trending now. Dark Green is formal but warmer and more lively than black.

The beautiful ruching at the bust and waist draws attention upwards and hides a tummy, and the gorgeous jersey fabric drapes beautifully over your curves. Silver accessories are stunning with this jewel-toned green, making this dress look very regal. FALL & WINTER Plus size mother of the bride - Navy gown, silver accessories

Sleek Accessories Spell Sophistication

Anyone who has tried to put together a mother of the bride look knows it’s not just about the dress. Accessories can make or break an outfit!

Metallic colors and shiny finishes are synonymous with an elegant look, which is why this sleek, shiny clutch and silver evening ankle sandals instantly upscale this outfit.  See how well they complement this gorgeous sparkly, navy lace capelet  gown?  I love the way the texture on the shoe and bag are so in sync with the bodice of this dress.

Lace is Lovely for a Fall Mother of the Bride or Groom 

Chiffon and lace are an elegant combination that will always serve you well. If you are a mother of the bride with traditional taste who wants to look her best, you can’t go wrong with this tried-and-true choice.

This gorgeous floral embroidered chiffon gown would look perfect at a fall or winter wedding worn with soft rose gold accessories to make this romantic shade even more beautiful. All one color is slimming for plus size gals, but the touch of texture up top on the dress (lace) makes this dress a standout! This is an elegant look that is easy for anyone to wear.
