No more hiding behind your clothes in workout wear, pajamas or oversized sweaters from winter. Just because you’re a mom now doesn’t mean you can’t wear the latest trends. In fact, it means you also have the advantage of also sharing your love of fashion with your children. Ease into a trend with subtle piece that fits your personality. Don’t tackle it head-on from head-to-toe if you’re not comfortable wearing it. For example, orange is this season’s hottest color but if you’re not sure about a bright orange dress, perhaps a coral top might suit you better. Have fun this spring and play with the trends you like best and you just might find your inner Rachel Zoe!

Stripes — always a spring staple, nautical stripes are everywhere this season. Take advantage of the trend and try stripes in a new, bold color like yellow or go for the classic blue and white sailor look.
