Any mother to the graduation seems to be a very exciting event. On this day, she can watch her chick literally fly out of the parent's nest and enter adulthood. To adequately look at this event, my mother should approach the choice of her outfit no less responsibly than her daughter or son. Choosing dresses for mom at graduation, it is important to take into account a variety of factors and nuances, which, at first sight, may seem insignificant.
Choosing a dress by the figure type
- The figure "apple" is characterized by slender legs and a rounded tummy with an indistinct waist. To give this silhouette femininity, you need to choose dresses with corsets and lush( or free) skirts, these options will give the female figure a harmonious look.
- For "pears", on the contrary, it is characterized by pronounced waist and rounded hips, but its shoulders remain very narrow. In this case, lush skirts are contraindicated, and preference is given to dresses in the Greek style.
- The type of figure "hourglass" is extremely feminine, with moderately expressed hips and chest and a thin waist. Dress for an apple shape Dress for a pear figure Dress for an hourglass figure
This silhouette allows you to choose any dresses, regardless of their length and style.
Combination with the child's outfit
The question of what to wear to the parents at the graduation party is relevant mainly for the mother. The pope, as a rule, has a beautiful suit for all solemn occasions. A woman will have to seriously think about this issue, because her outfit should not only please her, but also harmoniously blend with the image of her child.
Imagine that your daughter decided to choose a stylish pantsuit for your holiday, and you preferred a smart evening gown. In this situation, the surrounding people will have a feeling that the holiday belongs to you, not your daughter.
Or, for example, you go to the prom to your son who chose a simple classic suit, and you are in the image of a woman a vamp. This will look somewhat inappropriate. In short, the dress of the mother should be modestly modest, restrained, but still beautiful, and most importantly, combined with the outfit of her child.
Let's look at some simple examples. If a girl prefers a dress with a "mermaid" style in bright pink tones, then her mother can choose, for example, a Greek dress in the same color scheme, but in a more restrained color. To achieve harmony with the son's outfit, it's enough to add one repeating element to the images. For example, a guy can put in his pocket a beautiful handkerchief, and his mother - to tie a silk handkerchief of the same color to his neck.
Cocktail attire is one of the most actual as in 2017, and in any other, as it has not gone out of fashion for many years. This style has many advantages.
First, you can choose a cocktail dress with a long or short sleeve, fitting or loose, with or without a cutout and so on - lots of options. The same applies to the color scheme. In this case there is no binding to any particular color, so you can choose your favorite shade, whether it's burgundy, dark blue or emerald green.
- The cocktail dress for the mother at the prom has a number of distinctive features. First of all, it is his restraint and classic appearance. In this outfit, you definitely will not look strange or too defiant, as it does not involve the presence of an excessively large neckline or open back.
Mom - Hollywood Star

In this case, the most courageous and brightest decision is the Hollywood style. Your daughter will surely be very proud if her mother looks like a Hollywood star that can outshine the mothers of all her classmates and classmates.

You can complement such a costume with an elegant cape that will give the image a more evening and solemn look. A suit from a blouse or top with a skirt allows you to experiment with colors and textures of fabrics. For example, a set, the upper or lower part of which is decorated with a delicate lace lace, will look very elegant.
