Our mothers are from all different time periods. Whether she rocked the 80s or was a hippie in the 70s, our moms have more style than we probably give them credit for. There is never a day that goes by where I don’t see myself reflecting things into my style that my mom has taught me about fashion. In honor of our amazing moms, and their amazing style, here are 8 reasons why mom will always be a style icon.
There is nothing more amazing than finding an old pair of Levis or a chic leather jacket when perusing your mom’s closet. If she kept most of her old items of clothing, (lucky for you) chances are you will find something authentic and stylish to wear. Reasons why mom will always be a style icon!
Moms want you to look your best; because ultimately, they want you to be the best YOU that you can be! Even when I find myself in a fashion slump, I can count on one style icon to tell me exactly what looks good, and what doesn’t.
Remember all of those times she told you to go back to your room and change? Turns out, her style icon senses were right on point. Looking back at some of my middle school fashion choices, I wish I had listened to her. Definite reasons why mom will always be a style icon!
Our moms grew up in some of the best eras for fashion. Believe it or not, they rocked high-waisted jeans before we even knew what they were. Ever heard the phrase, “fashion repeats itself?” Well guess what, it’s true. Look at some old photos of your mom – I bet you’ll be totally envious of the fashionable babe you see.
Starting at a young age, our moms have been our style icon, whether we knew it or not. In fact, she was our icon for just about everything; the first woman we ever idolized. It’s no surprise that as we mature and discover our own sense of style, there is always a little part of our mom’s style we can’t hide.
What would a style icon be without their very own fashion muse. And guess what, you are that stylish muse! Moms are constantly drawing inspiration and ideas from us without us every even knowing. Just as we steal ideas from them, they do from us as well. Sounds like a win-win situation to me!
Moms have a lot to deal with. They’ve helped put us through college and keep roofs over our head, but somehow, they still always look great. If anyone knows how to shop on a budget, it’s our mothers. Remember the days you got dragged into thrifting, or going to Marshall’s and Daffy’s? Well, we may not have shown our appreciation at the time, but our meek college bank accounts are definitely thanking her now!
Have you ever picked up and old photo and had to figure out if it is your mom or yourself? We are reflections of our mothers. We will always be influenced by them, even if in the most subtle of ways.
There is nothing stronger than a mother’s love. Let’s take a moment and celebrate our moms, and thank them for keeping our prints matching and giving us the same advice they got from their mothers about fashion. My mom gave me the gift of loving fashion at a very young age, and that is the reasons why mom will always be a style icon!
