MOB Suit and colors question

Okay, so my mom sent me an email saying that she had picked out what she was going to wear. She ordered a summer weight super light grey suit (almost the shade of a silver fox she said). She said it was a great cut, very Jackie O. She was planning to wear it with a silk blouse and silk shoes, both ivory in color. She was worried it was too neutral however I know that my mom feels most comfortable in neutrals.



What are some ways to jazz it up? Her corsage will be peach in color but maybe I should buy her a scarf?? But if she is wearing the blouses she most favors (which I think she said she would) they're usually a scarf neck style so would that be redundant and look silly to have another scarf over that? Or hats, she was thinking about maybe wearing an ivory hat. Maybe she should do color? She also said she was thinking of wearing a headband, again ivory silk... bah. My mother has chin length hair, think the little crazy lady in "Incredibles," that's what my mom looks like, haha.

I think my mother was planning on wearing her Tahitian pearls. I hadn't thought about a nice brooch kohler. I think a pillbox would be hard to track down as it would have to be in the same fabric. Plus it would mean more grey! Oh but that first suit jacket is very similar to the cut she ordered! Bracelet sleeves et al. Maybe a bracelet? hmm Iklein, I would definitely be looking at shoe clips but her shoes are "bedazzled" for lack of a better word! They're the flats with crystals in the front :( plain white crystals...





This is the color of grey in question :) thanks ladies!
