You may look for fashion tips in magazines and on the Internet, but if that’s the only place you check out, you are missing one of the best spots for fashion inspiration, and that’s your mother. Mothers have some of the best fashion and beauty tips around because they’ve been there and done that. Here are our favorite fashion tips from mom.
- Black always looks good.
If you’re not sure whether you should wear the print dress, the striped top and slacks or the black outfit, always go with the black. Unlike any other solid color, black will never let you down, and that’s something that you surely won’t want to forget. Likewise, mom also always says to make sure that you have a great LBD or little black dress in your closet.
- It’s better to be over-dressed than under-dressed.
If you don’t know what to wear to an event or big occasion, take your mom’s advice. Even if you’re slightly overdressed at the event, that’s better than being underdressed.
- Err on the side of modesty.
It’s fun to wear short skirts and low tops when you’re young, but your mother’s right. To be taken seriously and the respectable as a woman, you should always err on the side of modesty.
- Always wear sunscreen.
Sunscreen never hurt anyone, but it certainly helped a lot of people. It’s always so annoying when your mother tells you to put on sunscreen, but she’s doing it with your best interest in mind. She’s older, and she’s had her share of wrinkles. She knows what happens when you lay out in the sun too long. Take her advice, and always were sunscreen outside.
- Less is usually more.
This tip applies to tons of things in life. It applies to your clothes, your makeup and your home décor as well. You may think that more is always better, but your mom knew best when she said that you should go simple and basic when in doubt. This is something that you’ll never regret.
