Stacy London's Everyday Style
Stacy swaps sneakers for sophistication
Milagros Guzman, 35, is a mom of three without a moment to spare. Stacy London—of TLC's What Not to Wear, and co-founder of Style for Hire—to the rescue with cute and comfy looks that work with her life.
"Milagros, a stay-at-home mom, is in a comfort rut—all jeans, sneakers, and tees. I paired her own skinny jeans with a silk top (instead of a T-shirt!) and wool sweater. The top’s bold color and rich fabric add some much-needed sophistication, but it’s still an easy-to-wear look for the park or PTA meetings."
Invest in boots
"These boots are great for a mom on the go. Milagros can wear them anywhere, paired with a dark-wash skinny jean or a bright sweater dress (cinched with a slim belt).
Instead of a tote or diaper bag, I suggested an oversized hobo with a long strap—it holds everything, looks chic, and sits easily on your shoulder."
Go bold with black
"Black ponte (a thicker polyester knit fabric) pants are a great alternative to jeans. They’re comfortable and look like dress pants—and never wrinkle!
For Milagros, I paired them with a bold green blouse and her soft knit cape—a perfect substitute for a jacket and right on trend for fall."
Keep it or toss it?
Perfect to dress up jeans or layer over a dress at the office.
Oversized tee: Comfy doesn’t have to mean sloppy. Go fitted with basic tees.
