    age-appropriate. Sienna Miller is another one that always gets it right.” How
    about a celebrity mom they’d like to re-style? “Well, that’s tough to answer,”
    they said, “Celeb moms who don’t need re-styling, who don’t really need our
    help, but who would be fun to work with? Julia Roberts and Sandra Bullock.
    Maggie Gyllenhaal is fabulous and groovy. All of these women have great style
    and en
    ergy.”

    Sure,
    w
    e’re

    mom.

    Mom

    Trying to be stylish while dressing for work can be, well, hard
    work. “Don’t be afraid to be a woman,” Beckie says. “We had a client who was a
    CEO who took off some time to have kids. She
    had many militant, masculi
    ne Prada suits that screamed, ‘In order to be taken
    seriously, I have to dress like a man.’ For her return to th
    e workforce, we had
    so much fun making her powerful and
    feminine.” They put her into a Narciso Rodri
    guez suit, one with a dress that
    showed her waist. It was paired with a jacket, so she could go straight fro
    m
    the o
    ffice to out to dinner at night. “Being feminine or sexy isn’t about
    showing skin, but wearing somethin
    g that accentuates who you are.”

    Martina adds, “There are so many options today, a lot of
    appropriate clothes for the office that work without being
    masculine.” They
    point to stores like Zara, Club
    Monaco and Banana Republic fo
    r items that are
    well-cut, but affordable. At the higher end, they mention Jil Sander for great,
    minimalist suits and Zac Posen’s feminine, yet structured dresses.

    “Jeans and a top is a great outfit for every mom,” Martina says.
    “You need to get a good pair of jeans as a foundation of your wardrobe. You can
    wear it in the summer with some groovy tops or in the winter with sweaters.”
    They suggest spending a few extra dollars for well-made t-shirts and tops that
    you can dress up or down. They may be more money, but by providing more outfit
    options, you get more bang for your buck. “JCrew has great t-shirts. Also,
    check out Barney’s
    COOP for shirts by A.L.C., Vince, Splendid or Alexander Wang.”

    Whether you are a WOHM (work-out-of-home-mom) WAHM (work at home mom) or SAHM (stay-at-home-mom) a dress is a great thing and a time-saver
    something we all
    need. “If you have a good dress, you don’t have to think too much,” Martina
    says. “Throw it on with your boots. Put a belt with it or a cardigan. You can
    wear it solo or layer it and make it more interesting.” Beckie agrees, “Getting
    a good dress that works for your body is one of our greatest recommendations.”

    Schlepping the kiddos around the city when it’s 96 degrees and
    still managing to look stylish is tougher than the Sunday Times crossword puzzle (or finding a free 10 minutes to even start
    it). Beckie suggests getting one or two cotton dresses for summer. “I was on
    Fire Island and there was this women pedaling around
    in the Nili Lotan dress, one of our favorite designers, and she looked amazing.
    She wore this dress literally everyday!” They don’t have to be expensive,
    Martina insists. They say grab a few from Zara or H&M, slip on sandals, and
    head to the sand box in style!
