Moms often get saddled with ruining fashion. Heck, I think you
can now find the term "mom jeans" in the dictionary. We need to put
a stop to this discrimination. Here are five spring trends to help
you do just that:
Polka dots are in this season. Make them
your own with a fun headband or scarf.
1. Go boldly into this new day. Choose bright
yellow and orange. Go ahead and buy a few things in bright sherbet
colors. If your closet is a sea of black and gray, pair a vivid tee
or scarf with those basics. A pop of color brightens not only your
wardrobe, but your spirit.
2. Become a Monet. Watercolor-like,
floral-patterned dresses are all the rage this season and they look
good on everyone. But the best thing about these breezy,
color-laden dresses? It makes choosing shoes a whole lot
3. Get drafted. Military jackets are out in
force this spring, and you can easily enlist this trend with a few
boundaries. Keep yours fitted, in a basic color (either tan or Army
green) and void of too many embellishments. Throw on a V-neck tee
and a short casual skirt, or your favorite non-mom jeans.
4. Connect the dots. In keeping with the "fun"
vibe many designers embraced this season, polka dots are popping up
all over. If bold dots aren't your thing, try a tone-on-tone
polka-dotted blouse or sport a splash of spots with a dotted
headband, belt or silk scarf.
5. Campground chic. This trend is simple but
ultra-cool. It's all about shades of khaki. Think white tees and
tanks under a crisp tan blazer and a pair of ankle-length white or
denim jeans, or a head-to-toe khaki suit with a pop of color
underneath. Khaki is anything but boring this spring.
