Celeb Mom Trends For Less


Celebrity style is all the rage, especially for moms and their little ones.  But can you really get celebrity-like style at an affordable price?  Here are some of the tips we shared for dressing realistically, but like a celeb mom for less on Chicago’s “Windy City Live.”

One of our favorite A-list moms has been spotted out and about a couple of times showing off her belly bump in a raspberry or fuchsia dress. If you’re pregnant this summer, a bright colored dress to show off your bump is a must-have for your maternity wardrobe. Dresses are easy and flattering and cover you in all of the right places! Plus, when it gets cool, you can throw on a jean jacket or cardigan and still look great.  The best part of this look?  You can wear it after you have your baby while getting back to your old self.

After you’ve had a baby, it’s hard to hide the post-baby weight!  But the best way to fake it is by wearing all black and drawing attention to your better assets—it’s not like your ears have gained any weight! Just look what Beyonce does with basic black, a great anorak to hide the excess curves and oversized sunglasses to hide her tired eyes. The best accessory of all?  Your baby in their carrier complete with a cute pair of baby kicks— that’s the only thing anyone is going to see anyway!

Any mom can tell you that her “getting ready” time was cut in half when her baby arrived.  For moms with twins, you can cut it in half again.   Sarah Jessica Parker always looks chic, even in the comfiest of clothes.  A good pair of boyfriend jeans paired with a motorcycle style jacket can be dressed down with cute flats or dressed up with heels for girls night out or date night with her spouse.  Her twins define cute in their classic style, wearing a great pea coat for spring with our favorite trend for little girls, leg warmers.

Kourtney always looks put together in a way that works for many affairs:  work, date night, or a day out shopping.  Her maternity style is simple and made up of a lot of skinny pants and flowy tops.  With accent pieces like a blazer or chunky necklace, she adds character to any look.  Mason is the epitome of little-man cool with his collared shirts, hats and even his pjs which he has been photographed wearing out and about lately.

One of the hottest trends for spring are colored jeans.  No one has embraced them more or wears them better than Jessica Alba.  She has been photographed in a rainbow of colored legs, many pairs topping the $200 price range.  The good news is that ANYONE can wear them, and you can find them at a variety of price points.  For those of us who haven’t embraced skinny jeans, that’s ok too—as many of our favorite retailers make colored jeans in boot cut and flare leg styles too! Colored jeans are more fun than regular denim signal the onset of summer!
