Truth be told, no two women are exactly alike. We don’t look alike, sound alike, act alike, or share the same fashion sense. Because of this wonderful fact, I decided to do a search for some unique fashions that can be categorized for different style and body types. Just remember, it’s okay to cross over into someone else’s category. You just might find you are more versatile than you thought you were.
For the sexy, sophisticated woman who doesn’t mind showing off her rockin’ body try the Safari State of Mind from http://www.bebe.com; pictured upper left the snakeskin, collarless vest, $98.
For the funky, earthy girl who loves to give to worthy causes, check out the cool shoes at http://www.tomsshoes.com. Tom’s gives away one pair of shoes to the needy for every one they sell. While you are on the site, check out the ones they have for kids and babies. So cute! Pictured, pink big dot canvas slip ons, $44.
Follow the http://amominredhighheels.com/pzi-jeans/ link to a great article on stylish jeans for moms. I often hear many women complain about how hard it is to find jeans that fit their bodies. Maybe PZI is your ticket. The Classic Skinny Jean pictured is available at http://pzijeans.com/, $69.
For the mature fashionista, take a look at this chic flyaway cardigan from Simply Vera: Vera Wang for Khol’s http://www.kohls.com, $57; also available in black. The entire collection is conservative but unique and is suitable for older women.
Mom To Be
The spring/summer collection from Liz Lang for Target is fabulous. Her magical separates allow the mom-to-be an inexpensive way to shine through a time that can challenge even the most fashionable woman. I only wish I was pregnant to enjoy this Liz L Doleman Top…or not; available at http://www.target.com, $20.
These business separates from http://www.victoriassecret.com fit the woman’s body superbly. They are true to size and offer a flattering, put-together look for the office. My experience with this site has been extremely satisfying. Pictured, the Marissa fit trouser and two-button jacket, $39-$98.
Unfortunately, finding the perfect pair of jeans is a trial and error process and it takes time…something moms don’t often have. Empowering yourself with information from reviews, word of mouth and research will give you a starting point with some brands that may work. Using the knowledgeable staff in stores like Nordstrom, Levis or Buckle will also help save time.
I definitely agree with you on that. Women can also feel so frustrated with trying to find a good fit that they give up on jeans altogether. I have narrow hips that don’t fit well in most “womanly” jeans. I have to lean more towards the low rise, stretchy fits. But now that I know what works, I stick with the brand and cut.
