It’s that inspiring time of year to show your appreciation and gratitude for the one that raised you.
Whether it’s your Mum, a special woman in your life, or if you’re the Wonder Woman juggling all that motherhood entails - we all deserve a treat now and then and this guide will help you cherry-pick some unique Mother’s Day gifts for your nearest and dearest from the fabulous range currently available online and in-store.
Say it with flowers in this dreamy floral Demira Dress. With her delicate blue and green print over cream; it’s the perfect 1950s style dress to step into Spring. To keep your Mum warm while we transition into the new season, add the Ivory Jean Bolero which picks out the creamy background of the dress. To accessorise this outfit, use the green that features in the print and pair with the Prudence heels, Doris Croc bag and Gloria Carved Bangle, tying them all together with the Marianne Belt to cinch in the waist. This is a really pretty and fresh look for Spring which she will love.
The Dolores Doll Dress is a design classic and she’ll go dotty over this pop of purple complimented by pale pink retro accessories. The sweetheart neckline is so flattering and there are side seam pockets that are essential for Mums on the go. Combine this with a soft pink by adding in the Linda Cardigan for sunny but cool days, the Zoe Pink bag and a dash of fun with the Ice Cream Earrings. Add the Lola Hair Flower and Olivia Carved Bangle to continue the purple theme and complete this fancy but fun outfit for Mother’s Day.
She’ll feel like she’s stepped straight into Spring with this combination of muted oranges and yellows. The Nova Heart Trim Dress features a delicate trim of white hearts to show her you love her. The Jan Sunny Floral Cardigan with its gorgeous embroidered Marigolds and vintage-inspired shape ties in so well while keeping shoulders warm if needed. Add the Elegant Sunny Floral Bag and June Hair Flower to combine the colours and finish with the Marianne Croc Heels and a bangle stack using the Ronnie Bangle for some fakelite fun and super stylish Mums!
Show her how sweet and kind she is by treating her to the Kimberly Embroidered Strawberry Dress which comes in pastel pink with pretty red strawberries. Continue to pick out the fruity accents by combining with the Lucy Strawberry Cardigan which has the cutest buttons, the Lily 40s Brooch, Michelle Earrings and Strawberry Bag for an elegant novelty outfit fit for a Queen. To complement the pink of the dress, choose the Jeanie High Heel in coral which match really well. The perfect Mother’s Day outfit inspiration if you’re planning to treat her (or yourself) to Afternoon Tea.
The Caterina Stars Dress says it all! She’s a star and you want everyone to know how special she really is. The shirtwaister style is a classic 40s/50s vintage look but given a modern twist with this amazing star print over navy. Bring out the nautical styling by adding in a few simple but effective pieces like the Halette Cardigan, Kiria 40s Necklace, Martha Bangle and Lila Heels with their dainty white trim and comfortable block heels. To complete this outfit, add in the Lilly Hair Flower to combine the red, white and blue details together. All aboard for some Mother’s Day fun and frolics!
Colour her pretty with all the shades of the rainbow and bring the joy to her outfit that she brings to your life. The Dorothy Dress has a striking rainbow chevron design that’s sure to brighten anyones day and features a fabulously fifties fold over neckline and full swing skirt. The Serenity Cardigan continues the rainbow chevrons and has long sleeves to keep her warm. Add the Darlene Harlequin Necklace, Peggy Hair Flower and Gioia Bag to further accentuate those rainbow tones and pop in a fun and vibrant Foldable Umbrella - because we never know what the weather’s going to be like, but it doesn’t need to be dreary! A great outfit choice for bold and bright Mums who don’t chase the rainbow, they ARE the rainbow!
If your Mum is more Goth Babe than Pastel Princess, then this outfit choice is perfect for a more alternative Mother’s Day gift. The Dolores Darkwear Top is a versatile velvet version of the classic with a lace-up tie to the front instead of buttons. The Daria Nancy Check skirt is a high waisted and pleated mini in a bespoke purple and black check that comes with pockets - because they’re always a must, whatever your preference. The Padme Creepy Girl Cardigan has a hood and is cropped with a spider web heart to the front for those black-hearted Mamas. Add in the Half Moon Cat Brooch, Spooky Night Beret and Spooky Babe Bag for some casual but cute details and continue the bats through to the Maya Earrings for this modern vintage, gothic look.
