One of my favorite trends for spring is the draped wrap skirt, sometimes called a tulip skirt. This is a figure-flattering silhouette that works for most body types, and I love the elegant detail that the draped fabric creates. So try something new--instead of sticking to your tried-and-true pencil or A-line skirts, I suggest investing in a drape-y style. While it's still cold out, wear it with high boots or opaque tights and heels.
As your kid turns into a teen, you will likely find that the child who was once content to run about with her hair in shambles will suddenly want each strand in place before she heads to school each day. As your teen develops this new interest, you can play a part in helping her select and maintain her look by exploring the world of teen hairstyles, and considering which 'do might be best for your image-conscious teenager.
While there's nothing wrong with playing it safe and keeping your maternity wardrobe fairly conservative, sexy celebrities like Heidi Klum, Christina Aguilera and Gwen Stefani prove that your pregnancy wardrobe can be sexy too.

As a mom, there are a lot of days when you look in the closet and see nothing to wear. You probably spend so much time getting your kids dressed, doing incessant loads of laundry, and trying to keep them from creating even more laundry, that you don't have as much time to think about your own wardrobe as you used to. Whenever I feel like this, I revert to my fool-proof outfit: a pair of jeans and a tee. But instead of stopping there, I dress it up with statement jewelry, like an oversize necklace and a stack of bracelets.

I love it when a great film comes out that also inspires a fashion trend, as is the case with Darren Aronofsky's psychological thriller Black Swan. Rodarte designers Kate and Laura Mulleavy, along with costumer Amy Westcott, dreamed up the frothy feather, tulle and Swarovski crystal-bedecked wardrobe for the film, which stars Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis.
Finding the right colors for your skin, eyes and hair can help you to look your best. You've probably noticed that you have favorite colors or garments that you feel good wearing and these can be a valuable clue toward the right colors for your skin tone.

Real bodies come in all sizes. While a good number of fashion magazines feature thin, gaunt women, larger women also enjoy flaunting fashionable styles.

When shopping for plus-size clothing, select items that feel comfortable and complement your appearance.
