The “Mom” look. You can fear it, you can succumb to it, or you can rock the sh*t out of it.
Nowadays, mom’s have it all together and are totally slaying the whole ‘motherhood thing’- but it wasn’t always that way.
Even your own mom will admit, some of those photos from back in the day are more scary than Carrie on prom night. Everyone has been exposed to the terrible fashion trends that pretty much ruined your mother’s #TBT’s for life. Ugly sweaters, horrid tribal prints, and neons that should have never existed in the first place.
The 80’s and 90’s “Mom Look”, -in all of its prime and horror- has come back to redeem itself.
Did you ever think you’d see the day you wished your mother would have saved some of those atrocious statement pieces that she is still infamous for?
I mean really, who would have thought “mom jeans” would be the hottest trend in 2016?
This is How the Mom look is going from frumpy to fabulous. #MILFstatus
1. The High Waisted Shorts
Oh yeah, they are back and they are sweet. High waisted shorts with a Komono and Bandeau are the Sh*t. Seriously? These were a mom look? Your mom was rocking Urban Outfitters before it was Urban Outfitters. Weather it’s a typical day at the shore or vibing out at Coachella, these shorts are the real deal.
2. The Big Hair
BIG. THE BIGGER THE BETTER. (Yes, we’re still talking hair.) When you locks are pumped up it makes you feel like you can strap on those wings and walk right next to Candice down the runway. Maybe we do a little less teasing today, but volume will never go out of style. ( We’re just happy the mullet did).
3. Sun Dresses
Those cotton things mom would just throw on to do house work? (not to be confused with grandma’s moo-moo) Yeah, we’re wearing them at the beach, with a killer pair of heels out to dinner and while binge watching Netflix. It’s the perfect way to be lazy but not look like it. Ma, you have all the secrets.
4. OverSized Sweaters
Wearing your man’s sweater used to be a way of claiming him. Now? Keep the guy, give us the cashmere. Although the style and patterns of the sweaters have gotten better, the size has not changed. The day men starting thinking sweaters and knee high socks, were sexy was the greatest day in the history of women. #SundayDoneday.
We need to all take a second and bow down to our mothers. Without them and their spandex pants, it would have never been acceptable to parade around the world in God’s most glorious creation. The colors! The comfort! The options! Could you imagine where we would be today if we had to wear jeans or slacks everywhere?! I would never leave the house.
6. The Big Jewelry
Statement pieces have made their way back into the lime light and they won’t be leaving anytime soon. Any woman you know has their go to statement piece that takes boring to bangin’. No one could have ever guessed t-shirts and chunky necklaces would go together like peanut butter and jelly. Thank you, Mom look, for trying so hard yet being so easy.
7. The One Piece
I never thought I’d see the day where the one-piece would once again be hot. On behalf of women everywhere, Pizza and I would thank the moms of the world for proving that you can have your cake and eat it to! While in a f*cking bathing suit.
