April 15, 2024 ยท by Andrea Long

Mother's Day is a time to celebrate the incredible women who raised us. Whether you're planning a brunch, a picnic in the park, or a cozy day at home, you want to look and feel your best. But finding an outfit that's both stylish and modest can sometimes feel challenging.

Fear not! Here are some outfit ideas to inspire your Mother's Day look, no matter your personal style:

The Classic Dress

A dress is a timeless and effortless option for Mother's Day. Look for a flattering silhouette that hits at the knee or ankle. A floral print or a soft pastel color adds a touch of springtime flair. Don't forget a cardigan or wrap for cooler weather.

Midi Dress: A midi dress with dainty details is both modest and polished. Choose a dress with a tie waist to cinch your silhouette and add shape. Pair it with sandals or wedges for a dressed-up look. Try the Chinoiserie Charm dress for a lovely Mother's Day option. Bonus: match with your little mini me in this style!

Maxi Dress: A maxi dress is a great option for a more formal Mother's Day celebration. Look for a dress with a high neckline and long sleeves. Flowy fabrics like chiffon or challis will keep you cool and comfortable, yet elegant and lovely on a warm spring day. You can't go wrong with a gorgeous flowy dress on this special day! The My Heart is Full Dress will make you the star of the show on Mother's Day. 

The Polished Separates

For a more versatile outfit, consider separates. You can mix and match these pieces to create different looks throughout the season.

Skirt and Blouse: A midi skirt paired with a flowy blouse is a chic and comfortable option. Choose a skirt in a neutral color like navy or black, and add a pop of color with a printed blouse. Choose from several color options with the With Love blouse to pair with printed or solid skirts!

Skirt Suit: For a more polished look, try a modest skirt suit. Dress it up with heels to look put-together and professional. Or dress it down with a t-shirt and sneakers for a fun, casual look. Check out our skirt suits here!

Adding the Finishing Touches

No outfit is complete without the perfect accessories. Here are a few tips to elevate your Mother's Day look:

  • Scarves: A scarf can add a touch of personality to your outfit. Tie it around your neck or drape it over your shoulders.
  • Hair accessories: A sparkly headband or delicate golden hair clips can dress up a simple outfit. Our hair accessories will make you swoon!
  • Belt: A belt can cinch your waist and add shape to your outfit. Choose a belt in a complementary color to your outfit.
  • Shoes: When choosing shoes, consider the planned activities for the day. If you'll be on your feet all day, opt for comfortable wedges or flats. If you're going for a dressier look, heels or sandals are a good choice.

Most importantly, choose an outfit that makes you feel confident and beautiful. Mother's Day is a day to celebrate you!
