On Mother’s Day, women are in the center of the holiday. It can be you, your mother, her mother and her, or your mother in-law – you get the picture. No matter what, Mother’s Day calls for a girly to lady-like look. Here are five tips to create awesome outfits that suit everything from brunch to a family lunch or dinner including a family reunion in Mom’s honor.

  1. If you are the daughter, don’t dress against her fashion rules. You don’t want to offend her on her honor day
  2. If you are the mother, who is in the center of the party, avoid to dress like a matron
  3. Go for fun prints and cute cuts like fit-and-flare, dresses or blouses with Peter Pan collar
  4. Add a playful bag and fashion-forward accessories
  5. Pick friendly bright or pastel colors
  6. Stay away from anything trendy regarding your clothes as most likely photos will end up in a family album. You don’t want to be in the center of your (future) kids or grand kids amusement in future decades when they flip thru a folder of past family reunion outfits.
