You are Not Leaving the House Looking Like That, Mom

imageFrom Saturday’s New York Daily News:

“Moms, it’s time to start dressing like your daughters. We’re not suggesting you squeeze into low-rise skinny jeans or miniskirts, but your daughter’s youthful style could do a lot to liven up a stale wardrobe.”

The advice works in reverse too. As a matter of fact, it is only with slight reluctance that we admit we are wearing our mom’s pants today. A nice dark brown wool number, slightly bootlegged, c. 1970. You can probably buy a pair just like them in any department store today.

The Daily News had Sherrie Mathieson, author of Steal This Style: Moms and Daughters Swap Wardrobe Secrets, make over some 20 mother-daughter pairs using the more “youthful” fashions of the younger set on mom. The before and after results, (including the makeover of the mom pictured on right) can be seen here.

For our mother and daughter readers who have had spirited conversations about each other’s wardrobes, Sherrie Mathieson will be at 92YTribeca on Jun 1 to share valuable advice about the benefits of cross-generation dressing.

Speaking of moms, this week at 92YTribeca is the much talked about Postcards From Yo Momma: What to Do When Your Mom Gets Drunk and Posts on Your Facebook Wall. More importantly, Sunday as we sure you all know, is Mother’s Day. 92YTribeca will be presenting a Great Big Fun Mother’s Day Show , a special family B.Y.O.K. event with Kenny Young and the Eggplants
