Fashion Trends


Sunglasses

Like shoes, women tend to have more than one pair of sunglasses.When choosing the right pair of sunglasses, you want to keep in mind the shape and size of your face. You might also want to consider the occasion. For swanky outings you might want a pair of oversize, glamorous sunglasses. Simple, tortoise shell glasses work well for an active day at the park or beach.

Vintage Styles

Where do you even begin when choosing a great vintage item? First consider the size. Many vintage pieces tend to run smaller than modern clothing. Check the garment inside and out for tears in the seams and small wholes or picks in the fabric. This will save you from disappointment when you get home with your prized item. When you put together your vintage look, it’s best not to look too done up and costume-ish. Keep a vintage lace dress simple with not a lot of added accessories.

Plus Sized Clothing

If you are a plus sized Mom, shopping for clothes can be a difficult, dreaded task. Here are a few Sharp Mom tips to help you along the way. Choose dark colors. Black really is a thinning color. This does not mean that you have to wear black all time. You can opt for dark shades of blue, purple, and brown. Always opt for dark pants to give your legs a slimmer look. Don’t forget to accessorize! Keep it simple with busier prints and get bold with your jewelry when it comes to dressing up solid tops.

Swimwear Fashions

Finding a swimsuit that you like can be a chore for most women. What is most important to know before you begin your swimsuit buying journey is the kind of suit you should be looking for that looks best on your body type. Sharp Moms has broken it down into a few swimsuit buying tips:

  • If you are small on top, try a demi-bra style top or bandeau top. Avoid tops with lots of fabric and try to choose separates so that you can size the tops and bottoms appropriately.
  • If you are blessed with a bigger top, try halter style bikinis and tank style one pieces or tankinis. Try to stay away from strapless and bandeau style suits.
  • Are short legs/torso your problem? Try pairing a solid bottom with a printed top for automatic longer look.
  • Long body shapes can easily pull-off jewels, ties and bows and boy shorts are just the thing if you have slim hips.
  • No waist? No problem! Try a bikini or one piece with a high cut leg.
  • If you are worried about your tummy area, avoid bikinis and try tankinis or one piece suits with some draping around the waist.
  • Pregnant? Don’t shy away from sporting a new suit to don your new look! Some soon-to-be-mom opt for a regular bikini so they don’t have to worry about fitting their ever-growing tummy into a suit. If you are later in your pregnancy, you’ll probably want to go for a suit with lots of bust support and stretch in the tummy area. Sharp Moms likes the styles Old Navy has to offer-stylish and affordable!
  • If your hips and bottom are your problem area, the skirted bikini is a good look for you. Don’t go to frilly. Try to stick with a smooth, sleek look.
