How To Emulate The Mother Of The Bride Style Of Carole Middleton

How chic is this hat by Beverley Edmondson Millinery, who has just opened her own boutique in Surrey.

This blog post is specifically for all your mums out there who love the idea of emulating the mother of the bride style of Carole Middleton. Yes, I know, Pippa Middleton’s wedding is yet to take place (May 20th), but how can one forget how chic Carole looked at the Duchess of Cambridge’s wedding? For those of you who don’t remember, she wore a powder blue Catherine Walker coat dress and coordinating hat. I am predicting that she opts for Catherine Walker again, but perhaps might choose pink this time, instead of blue?

The mother of the bride style of Carole Middleton is incredibly chic, elegant yet youthful at the same time. Carole Middleton knows how to look stylish without being too fashionable. If you are unsure how to emulate the mother of the bride style of Carole Middleton, let me explain. When you go mother of the bride outfit shopping, try and remember these important points.

1. Think classic and stylish. Look for colours and styles that suit you, and don’t be persuaded otherwise.

2. Pastels always look chic. It is more of a risk to opt for brighter colours that may look garish.

3. Accessories are key. A stylish dress or suit is nothing without a stylish hat to match.

4. Don’t think a professional hairstylist and make-up artist is just for your daughter. It is essential for the mother of the bride too.

5. Ask your daughter to accompany you when you go mother of the bride shopping. She will be an invaluable support.

I hope you enjoy taking a look at the outfits I have picked out below.
