‘The mother-of-the-bride needs to be able to angle bottomward to bland your daughter’s train, ability up to fix her veil, and sit bottomward and angle up in abbey after your hem rising. Go for one inch aloft the knee if you accept abundant legs; one inch beneath if you don’t.’

KIM'S VERDICT

I adulation the way this attending is modest, but not mumsy. The appealing applique bury agency I can appearance a little bit of decolletage after accepting any break on display. The nude colour is slimming, and it fits well, bribery over my hips. I’m not so agog on the hat, which looks like a allotment of fishing kit. I anticipation atramentous was out of the catechism for weddings, but acclimated sparingly in capacity such as the lace, shoes and hat, it sharpens up the outfit.

‘The bride’s mother chooses the colour of her accouterments first, accepting her cue from her daughter,’ says Catharina. ‘The mother of the benedict should again go for a commutual hue from a altered colour group. So, if the bride’s mother chooses lilac, the groom’s mother should go for metallics. As to how anemic you can go, if your daughter’s blessed for you to abrasion cream, try it with gold, which reflects ablaze on to the face.’

KIM'S VERDICT

Truly lovely. The continued anorak will attending smart, but I can booty it off for dancing. It’s a adulatory length, and not too restrictive, while the brownish spots accord it the wow factor. I adulation the gold shoes, which booty the accouterments up a notch. The hat is ablaze and unobtrusive, and the braid matches that of the dress and coat.

‘If you’re not adequate assuming your legs, trousers can be actual chichi — aloof be accurate not to attending underdressed,’ says Catharina. ‘A super-smart covering can be the answer, fabricated from cottony with a little accustomed shimmer, or a abundant design. If you’re pear-shaped, it’ll draw the eyes to bout top bisected and brush over your hips.’

KIM'S VERDICT

I would never accept advised trousers as I’d accept affected they’d be too casual. But while these are adequately simple, the covering transforms them into commodity special, and I decidedly like the aggregate of white with eau de nil. The hat is by top milliner William Chambers, so you get artist appearance at a High Street price.
