Mom's Fashion Trend for 2022 & Accessories

If you’re the mother of the bride (or groom), there are plenty of responsibilities that come along with that! Our team at Chantal’s Bridal & Formal understands that you’ve likely been helping out with wedding plans throughout the entire process, planning and lending advice as needed along the way. Choosing the perfect mother of the bride dress should reflect your own sense of style and celebrate who you are! 

 

Despite the fact that your outfit should complement the wedding color palette, season, and venue, today's mothers of the bride and groom shouldn't feel restricted to traditional attire. As a matter of fact, mother of the bride dress etiquette has changed over the years, allowing mothers to showcase their own style! So no matter what style you prefer, we offer something great for all mothers here. Read on for some of our current favorite mother’s dress trends and how to accessorize them: 

 

LACE GOWNS 

Lace is a classic fabric, but formal gown designers have been working to breathe fresh life into this trend for 2022! It’s a fabric that’s both delicate and modern depending on the style of gown you chose. A gorgeous lace sleeve is the perfect addition to a mother’s gown, covering up while still showing a peek of skin.

 

 

CAMERON BLAKE: #120624

 

A sophisticated sleeveless gown like this one from Cameron Blake is perfect for a mother looking to wear a gorgeous lace gown! The combination of lace and tulle with the soft sweetheart neckline and mermaid silhouette will create a stunning look. It includes a matching tulle shawl to cover your shoulders, as well!

 

 

With a dress like this, you really don’t need many accessories! Keep it simple with a classic pair of heels, dangly earrings, and a chic thin bracelet that complements the color of dress you choose.

 

NEUTRALS

 

Neutrals are timeless for a reason because they pair beautifully with every color palette! There are so many different neutral shades to choose from that will flatter your skin tone. Plus, it transcends every season of the year, making it a wonderful choice regardless of whether the wedding takes place in the summer or winter. 

 

 

MONTAGE#120921

 

If you’re looking for the perfect neutral mother gown, this one takes the cake! This sleeveless trumpet dress from Montage boasts gorgeous metallic ribbon work and allover lace with a v-neckline, u-shaped back, and a sweep train. Bonus - this gown comes with separate sleeves and a matching shawl for extra modesty and warmth! 

 

Neutral gowns are fun to accessorize because you can be a little bolder depending on the nature of the dress. We love a neutral gown paired with lots of gold jewelry! Or consider taking a color from the wedding palette and choosing a pair of earrings in that same shade or adding a fun colored heel.

 

 

FUN SLEEVES

 

Sleeves are such a huge trend across the board for 2022! There are so many different sleeve types you can go for that will add interest and a dramatic flair to your gown. From bishop sleeves to pouf sleeves to batwing sleeves, there really are so many options to choose from. We love mothers in dresses with a fun sleeve that adds a flair and unique touch to her wedding day look!

 

 

SOCIAL OCCASIONS BY MON CHERI#218801

 

What we adore about this sheath dress from Social Occasions by Mon Cheri is that it offers equal parts trendy and unique. It has an off-the-shoulder neckline and is covered in beautiful embroidered lace and offers these stunning three-quarter length lace bell sleeves. It’s so fun, yet you don’t have to worry about stealing the show from the bride. 

 

A dress like this deserves a pair of killer heels and gorgeous earrings, in our opinion!
