7 times moms gave the best fashion advice

By: ELLE Canada
DON'T BE A HOARDER
“Clean out your closet regularly”
- Christina Reynolds, Executive Editor

YOU DO YOU
“Style is about knowing what looks good on you, not everyone else.”
- Siffat Haider, Fashion Web Editorial Assistant

SWEATPANTS ARE FOR THE GYM
“My mom is a firm believer in always looking your best, which means athleisure is not part of her vocabulary. I wouldn’t dare wear my workout gear to the groceries in her presence. She’s taught me that stepping up your wardrobe game is priceless, and that it’s always better to, well, look better. Also, lipstick is a non-negotiable. Never leave home without it.”
- Lisa Guimond, Fashion Features Editor

ACCESSORIES MAKE THE WOMAN
"The bag, the shoes and the jewels are more important than the dress."
- Paris Palcit, Beauty Web Editorial Assistant

FASHION IS CYCLICAL
“I know a tightly curated wardrobe is all the rage (I blame Marie Kondo), but my mom has major regrets about donating her '80s clothes (think Linda Lundstrom coats, St. John suits and Ralph Lauren scarves) to charity when she had kids. I plan to keep every investment piece for a) when it comes back in style b) my future nieces. That's what storage lockers – and my husband's side of the closet – are for.”
- Carli Whitwell, Health & Beauty Editor

FIND WHAT WORKS FOR YOUR BODY

"Dress for your body type"
Juliana Schiavinatto, Fashion Director

CONFIDENCE IS KEY
"Style isn't about dressing in expensive designer brands. It's about knowing what look goods on your body and the confidence you exude. So walk with your shoulders back and don't look down!"
- Erika David, Editorial Assistant
