Although she may be expecting her second baby, petite mom Nicole Richie proves that a classic outfit can be flattering on anyone. Yes, we admit that most of us moms could never wear her size, but every mom (tiny to curvy) can benefit from a classic, feminine outfit for summer.
* 1 – 2 Seconds: Choose a dress that flatters your shape by “flowing” over wider areas and accentuating your smaller points(collarbones, bust line or a petite waist). If choosing a maxi dress like Nicole, it’s important to try on a variety of different sizes… the dress should show your silhouette without hiding your shape in fabric.
* 3 – 4 Seconds: Since summer isn’t here just yet, try layering this dress with a relaxed, well-fitting denim jacket. It’s a classic staple that you will use for years (and it can cover up bigger arms or hide nursing-bra straps).
* 5 Seconds: The key to pulling this simple look together is choosing accessories that look fresh and clean. Skip faded flip-flops or beat up sandals in favor of petite, ornate flats, and top everything off with corresponding jewelry (like long earrings or stacked bracelets).
