Â Â We at Makeover Mommaâ„¢ were deeply saddened to hear that 70’s icon and talented actress Farrah Fawcett recently passed away. Not only did Farrah leave a unique legacy (and was a proud mother herself), but her amazing fashion sense was often overpowered by the infamy of her hair style. In her day, Farrah’s fasion sense reflected casual, California chic perfectly (much like modern mom Kate Hudson), and wasÂ ideal for the summer season.
Â Â Try stealing some of Farrah’s style by relaxing your fashion rules slightly, and pairing casual pieces with classic finds.For example, try wearing comfortable Converse sneakers (or funky ballet flats) with Americana staples like perfectly-fit denim shorts, plaid button-up shirts or basic tank tops. If you prefer to channel her more preppy side, keep things simple and flattering with a crisp shirt, shorts that highlight your body properly (and cover you up as an active mom), and a bright accessory (like a bold belt or funky jewelery). The key to pulling off Farrah’s style yourself is to know your own body (how many of us really look like her?), and not showing every inch of skin necessary (or squeezing into unflattering shorts and tanks). If you don’t usually wear wild pieces (like sneakers or funky hats), draw inspiration from Farrah’s look without going against what makes you feel comfortable.
