Mom Style Guide: 1 Bustier, Rocked 5 Ways

April 11, 2016  |  


Bustiers bring us back to a time when we were all flat-bellied and carefree, young and trying to grow up too fast. I could go on and on…

Some have outgrown all of the above, but if we are lucky, we still are two out of four…or at least one can hope. Crop tops have become the alternative but we cannot forget the ever-youthful ladies, trying to be Salt-N-Pepa, rocking doorknocker earrings and feeling just fab. Those days don’t have to be over.

Well, maybe they do.

What you can do, though, is take pieces of the old-school and reinvent the style in fresh and new ways. Now that you’re a mom, don’t let those nostalgic memories waste away…put them to work. Rework, refresh, and release your inner 80’s baby with a bustier. The one we’re loving is by Billabong $45, but you’ll find a similar one here by Kenneth Cole.
