We recently asked Emmy-award winning TV personality, fashion designer (for "real women") and celebrity stylist, Carson Kressley, for some spring and summer fashion tips.
For Kressley, fashion for moms is all about "making it quick, making it easy, making it affordable and making [the] work for you."
If you're not into dresses, Kressley advises trying a stretchy pair of jeans, like Not Your Daughter's Jeans or jeans with a some lycra in them that feel as comfortable as yoga pants. "You can wear them with just a white t-shirt," says Kressley. "Get them in five or six different colours, and put on a little tailored jacket. And that jacket is going to really change your whole attitude and your whole look."
Take it easy on yourself. Though the trends are bold this season, you can still keep things simple with leggings and a tunic, or a little sweater dress. "It looks dressed up," says Kressley. "It covers the body, works for every body type and it's just two pieces. Find a uniform that works for you, embrace it and make it your own."
We all know accessories can really make an outfit pop. So stick with what Kressley calls your "go-to uniform, like jeans and a t-shirt, so you know what you're wearing in the morning and it's not a whole ordeal." And simply switch up your accessories! "One day you wear a big scarf, one day some inexpensive costume jewelry from Forever 21."
