7 Mother's Day Outfits for Grandmas and Moms

Looking for cute Mother’s Day outfit ideas? You’re in the right place!

When choosing a Mother’s Day outfit as a woman over 50, whether you’re a grandma or a mom, or you’re shopping for one of the mother figures in your life, it’s important to keep in mind things like personal style, coverage, material, color, and type of outfit.

Let’s explore more of what you need to know when shopping for an outfit that will really wow you or the amazing mother figure in your life for whom you are shopping.

How to Choose the Perfect Mother’s Day Outfit

Picking the perfect Mother’s Day outfit for a choosy mom can be quite the challenge, but never fear; at Anthony’s, we’re here to help.  

Check out our Mother’s Day Gift Guide to get some initial outfit ideas. Otherwise, here are some tips and tricks to make choosing this year’s Mother’s Day outfit a little easier and a lot less daunting.

  1. It’s All About Personal Style: Don’t fit yourself into an outfit you don’t like just because you think you should. Do, of course, keep the occasion in mind (and try to avoid anything too revealing). But don’t choose a particular style or pattern just because it’s “in”. Shopping for Mom or Grandma? Take some time to be sure you consider their sense of style, rather than your own when picking it. Chances are, they’ll appreciate the thoughtfulness!
  2. Consider Coverage & Venue Carefully: Think about the weather in addition to the venue where you'll be celebrating Mother’s Day. For instance, will you be going to a brunch that’s held outdoors? Perhaps a shawl or cover-up is a good addition. Will you be heading to someone’s house to hang out all day? You can probably dress more on the casual side. Will you be attending a formal dinner at a white-tablecloth establishment? Something more elegant is probably in order.
  3. Ask “How Does It Feel?”: We’re talking about two things here, material, and how you feel when you wear it. The last thing you or your mom wants is to feel stuffy and uncomfortable on Mother’s Day. Whether you opt for an elegant outfit with a breezy cotton maxi dress or an elegant silk blouse and slacks, you’ll want to keep things like breathability and comfort top-of-mind.
  4. Color & Pattern: Mother’s Day colors are often soft, bright, and feminine, evoking optimism, love, and spring. But you or your mama can wear whatever you please! If you like leopard print, bring it on! Solids or florals in a variety of colors work just fine too.
  5. Don’t Skimp on Accessories or Footwear: Accessories can make or break an outfit. While there’s no need to break out stilettos or fine jewelry, be sure to accessorize wisely. Aim for footwear that is both comfy and classy for all-day wearability.
  6. Remember, Preparation is Key!: Get your outfit dry-cleaned or pressed if you must ahead of time. Lay out your accessories the night before. Be sure you have makeup that matches with your outfit. An ounce of prevention is truly worth it when planning outfits for special occasions such as Mother’s Day!
