Outfit of the Week: Mother Knows Best

Jesse L. Brooks


Even though we will be spending Mother's Day social distancing this year, that doesn't mean we still can't celebrate moms with a fabulous new outfit. We are starting with a ladylike dress that is perfect for a spring day in May. Andrew Gn cites France's Madame de Pompadour as a muse for his spring/summer 20 collection, and this white floral-jacquard cloqué dress evokes the regal mood. It's structured with a fitted bodice and fluted sleeves, which are trimmed with floral-lace embroidery, then falls to a full box-pleated skirt. Keeping our accessories season-appropriate, we opted for pretty pastels, including Jimmy Choo's sophisticated candy floss sandals and Fendi's pistachio 'Peekaboo' pochette. For a loving nod to mama, we next added this darling necklace by Kate Spade. Show them how much you care with this gold-tone plated pendant with intertwined crystal-studded pave hearts hanging from a dainty, wispy chain. Women tend to love jewelry, especially when it comes from the heart, like this piece. Our last finishing touch comes courtesy of a pretty petal pink lip. Lancome's L'Absolu lip balm is a tinted lip formula that glides on like water, leaving lips feeling minty, cool, comfortable, and extra soft with a perfect hint of color. Even if you can't be with your mom on her special day, this look is a stylish reminder that "Mother Knows Best," even from a distance.
