Being a mom is no easy task, but spending time on your style can sometimes seem nearly impossible!
I've put together some great tips and a shopping list that will make looking sexy and stylish simple.


Toss Your Tees

There are few things as comfortable as an oversized tee, but the extra fabric is far from flattering. Try tops that are more fitted in bright colors and soft fabrics. The key is to accentuate your assets and distract from your flaws. If you have great arms — wear a tank, a long neck — try a v, and a thin waist — wear a belt. As for your flaws — if you're not crazy about your thighs, wear one color for both your shirt and pants. Dressing in one solid color will prohibit any one part, such as thighs, from being noticed. And if you're looking to disguise wider hips, wear a ballet neck sweater that will create a more balanced figure.

Mom Jeans?

A great pair of jeans is a wardrobe must, but finding the right pair can be a challenge. Remember to be wary of trends. A skinny jean is a sexy style, but not so if you're curvy. Instead try this season's hottest denim — the high waisted wide leg. This looks great on every body type.

A couple of quick tips: Dark jeans are slimming and your jeans should end half way down your heel.

Style Guide discovery: Tummy tuck jeans. Their styles are not only reasonably priced, but they have a unique fabric and cut that sucks in your stomach, lifts your butt, and you'll probably wear a whole size smaller.

Switch Out Your Sweats

Work, school, errands — with everything you have to do, comfort is key! Try switching out your sweats and wearing something much cuter and just as comfortable. My favorite summer staple? A crisp polo dress. Lacoste has them in a ton of colors and styles. And if this preppy style's not for you, try a shirt dress with a belt or print scarf.

Short Substitutes

Shorts are great for a day at the beach, but for some of us, the style is a bit revealing for our daily grind. Why not try a capri? The style is sure to keep you cool and looks great on everyone.

A quick tip: If you're legs are short wear a longer capri — one that hits your ankle or right above. And for a night on the town? Ditch your hot and heavy denim, and try a white, cotton pant.

Ditch the Kicks

Save your sneakers for a day at the gym and try a pair of ballet flats or cute sandals that are just as comfortable and way more fashionable. Try bright colors, prints and rhinestones to add some kick to your outfit. And if sneakers are a must? Try a topsider from Sperry that will make your leg look thinner and your foot less chunky.
