There’s something stealthily sexy about a day dress. Perhaps it’s because the day dress is so unabashedly feminine. Perhaps it’s because the silhouette is so different from the normal uniform of jeans and drapy tees. Perhaps it’s because these dresses are cut to celebrate the real female form (you know – the one with curves). Whatever the reason, the sexy day dress is worth another look. And you’d be hard pressed to find a better version of the day dress than the one that Lesley Evers has perfected.
I was pleased to find that as a Mother’s Day special, Who What Wear Daily covered celeb moms in their versions of “mom style”. While not all outfits are easily pulled off, they do provide a healthy dose of inspiration.
It doesn’t seem like fashion trends could get any mom-friendlier right now. What happened? Was it the celebrity baby boom of 2008/2009? I mean, rock hard abs are a distant memory, the hottest footwear out there right now are cork wedges and flat sandals and muffin top is actually in. But it’s true ladies, the gettin’ has gotten even better. Now we have fabulous, mom/baby-friendly neck gear to boot.
What are your suggestions for moms other than wearing jeans or legging daily? Thanks!
Oooo…Cindy. You are pushing me out of my comfort zone. As you may have guessed, I’m a big jeans/leggings girl. But never fear, there are so many great options out there that I could drone on at length. In fact, one could argue that this entire website is built around the concept of helping moms find their own daily uniform. Let me highlight three easy options that are readily available now: the chino, the cargo, and the linen drawstring pant.
NYC is a tough one as a tourist. You want to look edgy and up-to-date, but New Yorkers walk, on average, two miles a day, and tourists probably walk more. So, to get the absolute most out of the city, footwear choices have to be spot-on.
I found your blog via Shana’s sister, Scotti, and I must say I love it! We recently just had a baby boy and are having a baptism in May. I would like to wear something classic, understated and still look amazing after getting my body back. Could you possibly do a piece on what to wear for your baby’s baptism?
I’m considering all options but am steering more towards a sheath dress, pencil skirt, or the like. My one requirement is that it must be below the knee, even just slightly.
We’re seeing mixed prints everywhere this Spring: Fashion mags, blogs, runways – you name it, it’s there. But it’s a tricky, tricky trend. While a haphazard approach to just throwing on mixed prints can work, this type of look is usually pulled together by a killer pair of heels and a statement bag. So the overall look screams “I’m purposely not matching in an ironic way!!” instead of “I got dressed in the dark!”
The Liberty of London for Target Collection helped woo me back in, but it wasn’t the only source of temptation under those fluorescent lights. A perfect romper (M’s post has completely addicted me to rompers for moms), look-alike Hunter Rainboots, and a perfect tiny cross-body bag — all under $20!!! — sold me.
I am going on a trip to Disney World in late May (God help me) with my husband’s family. Our 2.5 year old will be along for the trip, and I will be about six months pregnant.
I am trying to find comfortable, breathable shoes to wear for this trip, that are also cute and stylish. My feet are wide to begin with, so pregnancy swelling+Disney crowds+heat and humidity will probably turn them into Fred Flintstone feet.
I’d appreciate any suggestions you can come up with. I’m feeling desperate.
