As a mom, summer fashion can be intimidating! Most of the styles are revealing, stringy little numbers, all of which would never grace the skin of this mom body! In this post I will be sharing some of my go to summer fashion tips and Summer Outfit Ideas for mommas who want to be fashionable, confident and comfortable.
4 Summer Fashion Tips and Outfit Ideas
The Jogger Pant Outfit Idea
There are so many questions around Jogger pants. What are joggers called joggers? Are Joggers supposed to be long? Jogger pants became a hit in the 2000’s as they transformed from a basic sweatpant into one of the most comfortable yet classy outfit ideas for the summer. They have the more comfortable elastic waist band and generally have elastic around the ankle. They are made to fall just above the ankle. I love a great silk or poly-blend fabric for my joggers as they feel amazing and look super chic. I tend to go with a high-waisted cuts that I can wear them with crop tops and not show my tummy like the look featured above from Indigo boutique in the Shops of Saddle Creek.
Handmade Rattan Bags – Summer Fashion Tip
I love a great 1920’s throwback and these handwoven rattan bags make the cut! When I wear my rattan bag I am reminded of the carnival days at the Navy Pier in Chicago. If you add a rattan bag to your summer wardrobe you are sure to get a compliment. These super cute bags are unique enough to turn heads and cute enough to add a feminine twist to any look. There are several amazing brands but I have found that Amerii Rattan Bags are of amazing quality at a very affordable price.
The Oversized Maxi Dress – Outfit Ideas
I love a good flowy, baggy maxi dress for the beach or an evening under the summer stars is number one when it comes to my summer fashion tips. I am always in search of a dress that cuts higher under the arms to hide underarm fat and have discovered that fabric movement in the underarm area will divert the attention up towards the shoulders which tend to be the smaller more toned part of our arms. I love this maxi from Indigo Boutique in the Shops of Saddlecreek.
The best thing about Maxi dresses is that you can wear them with comfy flats for a day look or dress them up with a great heel for a cocktail party. I fell in love with these Chinese Laundry pumps and beautiful basket weave earrings from Indigo boutique as well! The beach bag came from JcPenney’s amazing selection of straw beach bags.
Cinched or Tie Waist Styles – Summer Fashion Tip
Anything that cinches the waist gives shape back to your body. This is not just a summer fashion tip, this is a year round tip. Whether you are big busted or have no upper chest, like me, this little tip works for all body types. Choose a wrap dress that ties just below the bust or at the smallest part of the torso. If you have a baggier tunic or jumper, you can add a thin elastic belt to get the same effect. This beautiful, floral maxi is from my fashion line, A|N Signature showcased at my boutique, The Ivory Closet.
