Makeover Mommaâ„¢ Rating: A+ (B, if your kids are messy!)
Â Wearing white as a mother may seem like a disaster waiting to happen (ever heard of spaghetti, spit-up and sippy cups?), but almost every Fashion Momma should have a light-weight, comfortable dress in her closet. Despite any familial drama that may be going on in her life, we can’t help but love how feminine and summer-ready reality mom Kate Gosselin (and always stunning Nicole Kidman) look in their light, white dresses.
Flatter your figure by looking for dresses that accentuate your neckline, but flare out softly over wider areas (like stomach or lower body). Thin straps or a halter bustline generally make arms appear smaller (like Old Navy’s Eyelet-Trim Sundress), but look for anything with enough “wiggle room” to be comfortable on hot summer days (try H81 Lorella Woven Dress). If white simply isn’t your color, try choosing an ivory or light beige dress instead (anything that won’t attract the heat of the sun), and accessorize with bright colors (like blue earrings or a pink clutch) to make yourÂ complexion pop.
