An outdoor wedding in July sounds awesome. The casual venue in a coastal community at an outdoor barn wedding will be fabulous and calls for a short style, around knee-length, Mother of the Bride dress (MOB). A midi length dress will be great if you are tall. Look for a solid color dress in a classic style that flatters your figure type and that will look great in photos 20 years later. Trendy styles can make you look dated in photos after a few years. Sheath style dresses are flattering on most figures and can be dressed up with jewelry and accessories. You might want to get help from a personal shopper at one of your favorite stores selecting your dress. The color of your dress should flatter your skintone and hair color. Since the bridesmaids are wearing red you can choose a pink color for your dress or go for something in a neutral color like gray or beige. Another option might be a floral print with red in it. Whatever style dress you decide on be sure it fits perfectly. Wear makeup that goes with the color dress you decide on and be sure you have an up-to-date hairstyle if you want to look stylish.
Characteristics of jewelry that makes a statement are pieces that are bold, large, colorful and / or unique. Jewelry that draws attention to the wearer. Take into consideration the proportion of the jewelry in relationship to your size. Larger divas can get away with larger pieces than petite gals. Never wear more than one statement item with any outfit at a time. Wearing more than one “statement” piece of jewelry lessens the impact of both.
