Summer Mother-of-the-Bride Dresses

The Black Tie Mom

The dress: Taffeta dress with strapless sweetheart neckline, asymmetrical beading with matching beaded bolero jacket. Style 6557, $350, La Perle by Impression Bridal

Why it fits: The subtle beading follows the natural sweep of the gown, giving the allusion of movement and grandeur. The figure-flattering ruching will make the mother-of-bride look truly regal, with or without the jacket.
