I wrote this article for the Momtrends blog and wanted to re-post part of the article here for my readers! Enjoy…
Carpool line = Fall Fashion Show?
Bake Sale Display = New Shoes Display?
Pool Party Birthday = Latest Bikini Day?
I was lucky, my parents have pretty decent fashion sense, but there are a few universal Mommy fashion do’s and don’ts that I have been asked to explore. First, I wanted to breakdown the different mommy styles I have categorized.
1) I-Dress-Like-My-Kids Style
It’s always the worst when you have parents that dress like their kids. Dads should not wear untied Vans sneakers and Mom’s should not be wearing low-rise jeans. Now, don’t get me wrong, my mom and I borrow shirts from each other. But, this is a style where moms really are trying to look young.
You buy what’s on sale, what’s on the top of your drawer or whatever your sister got you for Christmas last year. These are usually pretty cool; as long as you follow the tips below and somewhat match.
I put a question mark here, because if you read the title of this post and thought, “well, I wear the same clothes I did 20 years ago.” Then this is you. These are parents who dress in their favorite decade—hippies, hipsters or funky.
