Mother of the bride over 60 styling

The best dress styles for the mother of the bride (MOB) over 60 should balance elegance, comfort, and age-appropriateness while reflecting personal style. Here are some dress styles that tend to work well for MOBs in this age group:

  • A-Line Dresses: A-line dresses are universally flattering and work well for MOBs of all ages. They have a fitted bodice that flares out gently from the waist, creating an elegant and timeless silhouette.
  • Sheath Dresses: Sheath dresses are simple, sleek, and sophisticated. They often have a tailored fit that skims the body without being overly tight, making them a great choice for MOBs over 60.
  • Wrap Dresses: Wrap dresses are known for their versatility and comfort. They have a flattering V-neckline and a wraparound tie at the waist, allowing you to adjust the fit to your liking.
  • Fit and Flare Dresses: Fit and flare dresses combine a fitted bodice with a flared skirt, creating a feminine and flattering shape. They can be a stylish choice for MOBs over 60.
  • Empire Waist Dresses: Empire waist dresses have a high waistline just below the bust, and the skirt flows down from there. They can be a comfortable and graceful option.
  • Tea-Length Dresses: Tea-length dresses, which fall between the knee and ankle, are a classic choice for MOBs. They offer modesty and are well-suited for semi-formal or daytime weddings.
  • Long-Sleeved Dresses: If you prefer more coverage, consider dresses with long sleeves. They can be both stylish and practical, especially for cooler seasons.
  • Lace or Chiffon Dresses: Dresses made from lace or chiffon are elegant and age-appropriate. They often feature delicate details and provide a graceful look.
  • Jacket or Bolero Sets: If you’re concerned about covering your arms, consider a dress that comes with a matching jacket or bolero. This allows for versatility in your look.
  • Monochromatic Outfits: Choosing an outfit in a single colour from head to toe can create a sophisticated and elongating effect. It’s a timeless choice that works well for mature MOBs.
  • Subdued Prints: If you like prints, choose subtle and classic patterns like florals or geometric designs. Avoid overly bold or trendy prints.
  • Elegant Necklines: Dresses with tasteful necklines like V-neck, boat neck, or scoop neck are often flattering and age-appropriate.
  • Accessories: Pair your dress with elegant accessories, such as pearl or diamond jewellery, a clutch bag, and comfortable yet stylish shoes.
  • Classic Colors: Stick to classic and neutral colours like navy, black, charcoal, taupe, and shades of blue, which are timeless and versatile.
  • Comfortable Fabrics: Choose dresses made from comfortable and breathable fabrics like silk, crepe, or jersey to ensure you feel at ease throughout the day.
