Mom’s Style Do’s and Don’ts
“When you don’t have time for a shower, pearls and ponytails are the next best thing.”
Boston: Yes to the ponytail, even make it a chignon. But scratch the pearls and instead spray a little Febreeze on your outfit. Coming across as fresh is important.
Bennett: I live in a ponytail. But as for the pearls, they can make you look like a politician’s wife if you’re not careful. I like putting on a really long strand that makes a statement.
Mills: Pearls, a ponytail...and hot pink underwear. Never underestimate the power of a fabulous set of Skivvies.
“Buy quality, not quantity.”
Boston: Good one, Mom! The woman who has one beautiful, quality tailored black suit can wear it a million times and still look better than the woman who has 17 different pastel suits with threads hanging out of the sleeves.
Mills: I prefer to see my closet as a well-mixed drink: two parts quality to one part quantity. I have $325 wedges sitting alongside $19 faux-lizard heels.
Lyons: Definitely. There’s a reason why most of your favorite things are probably the ones that you splurged on. You can go back to them time and time again, and they’ll still look great.
