Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

Back, by popular demand…our first style challenge of 2019!! We typically trot these out when we’re all collectively feeling in a bit of a sartorial rut. Aka, January. So. For the next five weeks, we’ll come out with a style challenge (one per week) to try and make better use of our existing wardrobes. And if you play along, you’ll be entered to win a $50 gift card to any retailer of your choice.

How To Join In On Our Winter Style Challenge

Every Wednesday, for the next five weeks, we’ll kick off a new Style Challenge. Give it a try, and show us your interpretation. Either post your pic to Instagram (and tag us with @themomedit #TMEStyleChallenge), or, if you must…email us the photo (like an old lady).

Starting this Thursday, we’ll be updating our daily newsletter to include pics from that week’s style challenge. And, per usual, we’ll include pictures from both TME Contributors AND our amazing readers (that’s YOU). Anyone who plays along will be entered to win a $50 gift card (but you’ve gotta be subscribed to our newsletter to see if you won…MWAH HA HA.)

In brief: 

  1. Upload your photos to Instagram and tag us: @themomedit #TMEStyleChallenge

  2. Subscribe to our newsletter (here!!) to see the results.

  3. The challenge runs from Jan. 9 – Feb. 13th

Now, the Style Challenges…

Week 1: Layer A Cami Over Something Warmer

Jan 9th – Jan 16th

Try layering a cami over a t-shirt, a turtleneck, a thin sweater…maybe even a button-down? Not only does this trick make your cami winter-ready, you can wear a regular bra. Hallelujah! (Bralleluhjah?)

For some recent examples, see the article, How To Layer Camis Over T-Shirts and Turtlenecks.

Week 2: Wear A Pop Of Color With All Black

Jan 16th – Jan 23rd

We realllllly like all-black around here. Why not jazz it up a tiny bit with a pop of color? (Lipstick counts.)
