Moms, it's time to up your fashion sense and architecturalize your garment choice.
I know what you're thinking. Architecturalize. Damn, that's a long word! Yeah, well it's for a good purpose, which you can read about in block 3 below. In the meantime, let's get into it.
What you see in the picture up top is a sexy Romona Keveza. Look at that back! Looking beyond the basic silhouette of the gown that you choose, the point is to pick cuts that point to architecture. This isn't so much avant garde as it is picking elegant wearable designs that are modern and feature unexpected cuts or details.
If you're confused or unwilling to go this direction, you can cheat a little by getting the job done with accessories.

I think by now you all know that I have this thing about moms wearing the most horrible ensembles of madness ever for weddings. This is just a soft ax that I'm grinding here, nothing to damning. However, let's not diminish the truth and importance that you, moms, need to look your best. I say this because, remember, you are a direct reflection of what your daughter will look like when she gets to be your age. And if it's your son who's getting married, then you definitely want to show the bride how sexy, beautiful, confident and glamorous she can be when she's your age.

You all should also know that I have some strong feelings when it comes to boleros and pant suits. Please don't rest on the stubborn fashion sense of the past. Be daring. Take a look at what's out there. If you don't know the top designers, find out who the top dress designers were for the past few years for the awards shows. Research them and their designs. Then...find either a vintage or used gown to keep costs low. Don't forget, you can also rent the runway. Just google the term and you can go from there.
