Tips – Looking Good

Condici’s guide to dressing the mother of the bride/groom

A wedding is just the excuse you need to dress up and there can be no more glamorous reason than your own daughter’s or son’s wedding. Condici specialises in elegant occasionwear with everything for the total look. The Condici collection consists of cocktail length and full length dresses with matching boleros, longer jackets, coats; all beautifully brought together with stunning co-ordinating hats. Fabrics include luxurious silks in a stunning array of colours and elegant crepes and soft chiffons in pretty pastels and bolder, bright colours. Condici has an outfit to suit every occasion as well as every type of figure.         

 

 For the curvier figure, you should make sure the jacket is not too short but covers your hips to create a longer, more streamlined silhouette.

A long jacket worn over a straight dress is flattering for just about every type of figure and is brilliant for disguising a fuller bottom or thick waist.

If you are petite, then a more fitted shorter jacket can look stunning and will accentuate your trim figure.

                                                     

A statement dress with a jacket is always a popular choice because you can take the jacket off later in the evening when things begin to warm up. Take along a matching wrap to cover your shoulders if you are self-conscious about your upper arms. Alternatively, select a Condici style that has sleeves; nearly all our dresses have short or elbow length sleeves.

 

How to look your beautiful best You will want to look elegant, and slightly understated, rather than trendy. Make sure your outfit doesn’t clash with the bride’s outfit or with what the other mother is wearing.              

Dressing Tips Always select a hat or fascinator that complements your outfit. Make sure a hat is worn on the crown, not on the back of your head. Fascinators are worn on the right side of your head and should feel comfortable. Choose your outfit in a colour that suits your hair and complexion.

Don’t be swayed by anyone else – you have to be happy with the final look. Bride aside, all eyes will be on you!
