3. Satin long sleeve dress with waist strap

If you love the pink trend, then this mauve dress is perfect for your trendy mother of the bride dress.

It's rare to see a mother of the bride dress that's made of satin. While you may see many mother of the bride dresses in shades of pink—you won't see as many in this shiny, lustrous fabric!

Another way to make your look stand out is, of course, through the sleeves. We love the cutouts in these long sleeves. Not only are they trendy, but they'll also keep you cool.

This mother of the bride dress is trendy but also looks great on any body type. Why? A-line silhouettes cinch the waist and then flare away from your body. You also get an adjustable waist strap to accentuate your hourglass shape further.

Bonus points? This dress also comes in burgundy, emerald green, navy, and sienna—all of which are hot hues this wedding season!

4. Black mermaid dress with detachable cape

The color black is a woman's best friend for many reasons: it's flattering, chic, and perfect for any occasion—even weddings.

That's right. You may love to wear black but worry that it's not suitable for a mother of the bride dress. Put your worries to rest! If you're looking for a trendy mother of the bride dress, then a black gown is very much an option—especially if you're attending a formal, black-tie, fall, or winter wedding.

If you're tired of tea-length silhouettes, change it up with a mermaid silhouette. This type of dress hugs your curves in all the right places. The sweetheart neckline and off-the-shoulder sleeves balance this sexy look and add a romantic, feminine feel to the dress.

Now let's not forget about the detachable cape because it makes this mother of the bride dress super trendy—it looks straight off the runway! We love that it's detachable. So when you're ready to mingle or hit the dance floor, you can take it off and move your arms freely.
