Celebrating Mom
MULTIPLE CHOICE - Luis Espiritu Jr. (The Philippine Star) - May 5, 2019 - 12:00am

It’s that month of the year when the whole world highlights the most important person in their lives — Mom. Yes, even fashion all over the planet celebrates the woman who matters most. From top magazines to department stores/boutiques, designer to ready-to-wear, and now on any online social media lifestyle platform, this tribute month has always been special. And the question is: “What do we give Mom?”

On a deeper understanding of life, Mom knows we give her love beyond measure. But on a fashion perspective,  have you ever given her something she loves? Does she have a wish list? Do you think she would like to have a new bag, a pair of shoes, a strand of pearls, a weekend spa treatment,  new lipstick, a whole day at the salon or a wardrobe full of clothes? Did you ever ask what her fashion favorites are? It doesn’t matter what age she is because style encompasses any number. What I am certain is that any mother or woman for that matter, would simply love a bit of pampering and a good dose of style in her life.

This Mother’s Day, gift mom with an ensemble to update her wardrobe. Debenhams is fashioning this celebration with current style-fitting ideas for the mid-summer season. 

The overall statement is relaxed chicness in a variety of prints. Florals and botanicals define an earthy Mother Nature feel that looks fresh and dainty. The bold and the beautiful abstractions of modern graphics in a variety of colors create that certain trendy chicness with a twist that’s not ordinary. Wild and free animal prints are making a comeback in new hues, such as green and black, that define a stylish new meaning to savage elegance.

Aside from its variety of relaxed and comfortable wear, the brand offers chic must-have accessories. Whether strolling on the beach or taking a walk in the park, she will come in style with bow and floppy hats that are perfect to keep her stylish under the shade. Gladiator sandals and wedges are definitely this season’s style-steppers to be mixed and matched with practically any summer wear.

And we all know that a look is never complete without an iconic bag. The go-to brand  has a wide range of these style essentials that she can practically carry everywhere. Totes in leather, straw or embroidered, bucket, circle, bowler and crossbody are the current season offerings perfect for in and out of the city strolls. 

Debenhams gives practical stylish fashion for mom with a relaxed lifestyle. Where comfort dressing rates high on the style meter, the brand is chic, easy-to-wear and definitely a treasure trove of wardrobe essentials. So, don’t forget to make Mom feel special not only on Mother’s Day but every day because she deserves nothing but fashion’s best.
