Summer 2018 Fashion Trends for Moms of All Body Types
The Summer months are my most favorite time of year. I think that's because those are the fun seasons. It's the time when we think of vacations, road trips, and just soaking up all the great weather, especially when you live in multi-climate weather cities like New York. When it comes to fashion, what I love the most about the warm seasons is how much fun I can have with my personal style. This Summer brings lots of color and playful patterns and relaxed silhouettes that any mom can comfortably and confidently add to her Summer wardrobe, no matter the body type.
Not much of a sneaker person, but ever since I had my babies, I have found myself to be a bit stiletto challenged. My legs and feet just can't seem to function like they used to in heels anymore. Sneakers have now become my go-to shoe of choice for work, play and downtime. The good thing about that is sneakers have now become a fashion statement and there is such a wide variety of styles, shapes, and colors to choose from that anyone can wear a pair with just about any look. Thanks to the fashion shot-callers, sneakers have now become a wardrobe staple for anyone and for practically any occasion.
Louis Vuitton SS 2018
Ruffles have made a re-appearance on the runway for Spring/Summer 2018. So in other words, ruffles are here to stay! Though ruffles look great on any body type, rectangular shaped types will find that ruffles can add shape to a more boxy figure. If you are top-heavy, opt for ruffles on the bottom like a ruffled skirt and vice versa. When wearing ruffles on curvier shapes try to balance out the frame with less over exaggerated ruffled pieces. Here are some of my favorite summer pieces.

3. Vintage Florals
Florals are flirty and girly and beautiful. Even more feminine are vintage floral dresses, which can be pulled off easily by any body type. Opt for long sleeves or short sleeves or buttoned up or high-neck and rock a look that is both stylish and conservative as well as versatile.
Jumpsuits keep making a comeback each summer and fashionistas are eating it up. Everything about jumpsuits scream summer. The great thing about jumpsuits is that it is flattering on all figures and shapes and can be a great versatile piece. Pair with flats or your favorite sandals or rock your favorite jackets or handbag with it. Here are a few cute choices.
5. Fanny Pack
This 90's trend has made a comeback and celebrities have been adding this accessory to their own fashion wardrobes. The fanny pack comes with pluses that also have nothing to do with fashion and everything to do with efficiency. Who doesn't like to be hands-free right?! Fanny packs come all shapes, colors and sizes, can be casual or dressy but most of all they are fun!
