I know my mom is a grown woman and whatnot, but she has absolutely no fashion sense. I rarely see her in anything but a ripped shirt and jeans and the only dress she owns is the one she wore to court divorcing my father (yikes…). It’s just how she’s always been, but I want to her to have once nice piece of clothing to at least wear to my wedding. Problem is I have no idea what to get her to wear an neither does she. She has kind of a boxy build with broader shoulders and a small chest and around 5’9″. I don’t know what would look good on her and she hates shopping so much that she won’t come without a plan. Any suggestions for what would look on her shape so I can have a game plan…

How formal is your wedding? Do you want her in a dress or would a nice pantsuit work as well?

Have you thought about trying an online personal stylist? Like http://style-me-perfect.com?

aliciaspinnet: I would say semi-formal but it’s also outside in August so I don’t want her to be miserable

I’d start googling “best dresses for boxy shapes.” I did a quick search, and the recommendation is more open necklines, things that come in at the waist, and a-line skirts.
My mom isn’t the best shopper, either, and what we found worked well for her was ordering from websites like nordstroms, macys and lord and taylor, then trying them on at home.
