Unbasic Black

The thing about black is it looks great on everyone. Have your mom go dark and sultry in a high-low style that's easy to walk and dance in (ideal if your mother's a little older — or just klutzy). Bonus: A black sequin mother of the bride dress can easily be worn again to another formal affair. Saving mom money? She taught you well.
