Mom Style

We’ll cut right to the chase: we’d be lost without our moms. Not to mention our aunts, sisters, grandmothers, and all the other women out there who have paved the way to great style by making sure we didn’t leave the house sporting a pair of flannel PJ pants.

So this Mother’s Day, we’ve figured out the best way to say thanks: by proving to the world that her style’s unrivaled.

Send us a photo of your mom’s impeccable style or tweet us her best fashion advice to put her name in lights – or at least the chance to appear on our login page or social media channels. You can submit your photos and advice via Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram with the hashtag #momstyle.

We have a feeling this is one Mother’s Day gift she won’t soon forget.

BLG-1386 Boutique-Support--Dresses-by-PersonalityPersonal style? It’s about more than being trendy. I’m a firm believer it should mirror your personality, too. So whether you’re a hopeless romantic or a go-with-the-flow type, peep the best prints, colors, and shapes that will convey your character at first (stylish) glance.

The Total Classic: They’re called classics for a reason. LBDs, seamed sheaths, and asymmetrical silhouettes can carry you from day to night effortlessly.

The Romantic: Soft tones, sweetheart necklines, and floral prints? Just style with a simple clutch and classic flat sandal, then let date night commence.

The Modernist: Chevron prints, colorblocked minis, and bold stripes will put you on the fashion front lines.

The Queen of the Evening: Floor-length gowns, intricate detailing, and dress-up fabrics like silk and chiffon will have you red-carpet ready in no time.

The Glamour Girl: For your next night on the town, break out the fitted, the sequined, and the (oh-so-sultry) bold hues. Paint the town red.

The Free Spirit: All you need to achieve the hippie-chic look? A high-low hem, breezy maxi, or tie-dyed print.

Our It’s a Match: Dresses by Personality Boutique opens Friday, April 5, at 11AM ET.

@dkny: I believe hummus is the answer to most problems.
And if isn’t, it should be. The roasted red pepper kind, anyway.

@MsRennaissance: Confession: I really dig Justin Timberlake’s “Mirrors” #sorrynotsorry #jammin’
Confession: We’ve been dancing to that in front of the mirror.

@stetted: Husband: Where did these weird non-matching plates come from? #lifewithablogger
When blogger excuses come in handy.

@thecourtneykerr: Money can’t buy happiness, but it can buy shoes and that’s, like, practically the same thing.
And the key to Nirvana? A pair of Louboutins.

@DerekBlasberg: Attention insomniacs: I had a tough time falling asleep on the plane. So I put on ‘Lincoln’ and WHAM! Out like a light #FourScoreAnd… Zzzz
So that’s why Tommy Lee Jones looked so unimpressed at the Golden Globes… he was actually just sleeping with his eyes open.

@thecoveteur: “Sweatpants are a sign of defeat. You lost control of your life so you bought some sweatpants.” – Karl Lagerfeld instagr.am/p/V7To6sRBeq/
If you call the sign of defeat not moving from the couch on Sundays, then yes. Guilty.

@ManRepeller: Not sure if you’re wondering, but I am listening to The Black Eyed Peas under bed covers in a plaid onesie.
WWKLD What would Karl Lagerfeld do (or say)?

@elementstyle: Cake. I wish I had cake.
Things that would make Wednesday infinitely better.

@mindykaling: Thanks about my WGA dress, guys. It’s Saint Laurent and shoes, too. The sleeves covered a burn on my arm I got last week.
When long sleeves come in handy.

@HotelFoxtrot: Leaving the gym, purple yoga pants and purple winter coat, not a well planned out outfit, I kinda look like Grimace.
Or a really fit Barney.

3. Nothing gets us in the mood for spring like a board full of fresh flowers.

4. These French bulldogs are beyond cute. Prepare to get distracted for hours.

iStock_000003951574SmallWhile we love to hypothesize about the romances of our favorite celebrities (looking at you, Taylor Swift), there’s one thing better than the cycle of makeups and breakups in the spotlight – the fashion. These stylish lovebirds are always on our best-dressed list:

Tom Brady and Gisele Bündchen: A Brazilian supermodel and an NFL superstar with runway good looks? Okay, fine. You guys win.

David and Victoria Beckham: Celebrity designer meets (and marries) hunky athlete. Every date night is a fashion statement for these two.

Jay-Z and Queen Bey: Because – she’s Beyoncé.

Barack and Michelle Obama: The First Couple are the new Kennedys. Michelle has become a fashion icon in her own right, and her signature style – pairing designer labels with brands like J.Crew – continuously stuns.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge: Kate Middleton’s fashion influence has a near-global reach. From the Alexander McQueen wedding dress to her grocery-store attire, Kate’s style has morphed into a cult-like obsession. (And the Prince in Irish Guards? Yes, please.)

Which celebrity couple do you think is the most stylish?
