Mother of the bride outfit? The good news is that if you’re feeling a little short on style inspiration this season you can turn to the power of monochrome, for a mother or groom wedding outfit that’s chic, flattering and eternally on-trend.

From traditional & formal to relaxed & glamorous, and everything in-between.  So popular is the monochrome mother of the bride outfit trend that we decided to share some style secrets to help you create your perfect look.

Perfect accessories: warm-tones & metallics


Why we adore monochrome

  • Monochrome colour blocking works incredibly well when you wear black and white, but also equally well with black and nude, or black and cream.  It’s incredible flattering (when fitted correctly) and is a fresh take on a modern classic.
  •  Monochrome is a classic style that won’t have you regretting your outfit choice in the future.  Plus, it also gives you the option of re-styling to wear again to future events (shhh don’t tell anyone).
  •  Monchrome can provide a perfect backdrop to unique accessories.  For ladies who like to showcase an element of individual style an LBD can be the perfect choice.

Dee, Fashion Advisor at N.Shelley says, “We help to style lots of mothers or the bride & groom who are inspired by monochrome.  From classically feminine dress & jacket outfits for the wedding day itself, to a slightly more glamourous little black dress for the evening party.  With accessories enabling their individual style to really shine through”.
