Don’t let the fact that you’re not a twentysomething supermodel keep you from dressing like one. Ok, so maybe you won’t wear the same bathing suit but you certainly can take a cue from Alessandra Ambrosio’s cute everyday mom style.
A button-down shirt is always classy and sophisticated, and when paired with this summer’s trendy cut-offs you’ve got an ensemble that says “casual cool.”
If you prefer longer shorts, consider getting a sleeveless button-down to balance out the fact that more of your legs will be covered. Or, at least, roll long sleeves up above your elbows. Then, just add some simple accessories like beaded bracelets, a watch and sunglasses.
If you want to elongate your legs and you won’t be walking far, try a pair of wedges. Otherwise, as Ms. Ambrosio shows us here, a stylish pair of flats will work just fine.
