Mom’s Style Do’s and Don’ts
“Always wear shoes that are close in color to your pants, especially if you have big feet.”
London: Wearing shoes that are exactly the same color as your pants is about as exciting as watching paint dry.
Buchman: Oh, my goodness. That really dates from 1910. With all that’s going on with shoe design, doing that would leave you out of a lot of the excitement of getting dressed.
Lyons: That’s crazy. There’s nothing better than a bright shoe. As long as it doesn’t make your foot look like a boat, you’re fine.
“Ignore size―go with what fits you and looks good. Don’t get fixated on the numbers.”
Boston: Moms who know this are geniuses. Remember: The tag is not on the outside of the garment, so no one is going to know. If it
makes you feel better, cut the tag out.
Buchman: Bless this. It should be taught in schools.
Lloyd: This is great advice from a good mother. In a world filled with number-obsessed shoppers, we should keep in mind that clothes that fit properly just look better.
