Was you mom a stylish lady? Of course she was (and still is)! Our moms are some of the original trendsetters and statement makers. They were among the first to set foot in a platform wedge and not turn an ankle, rip holes in their jeans on purpose, and embrace never-been-done-before trends with fierceness, fearlessness, and finesse. We can also thank them for passing some of their fashionable traits onto us.
With May 8th right around the corner, why not show the number one style icon in your life just how much she inspires you? We asked some of our ModEmployees to share “vintage” pics of their fashionable moms. Check out how we reimagined their looks from decades past below:
Executive Assistant Haleigh is always impeccably dressed at the office in perfectly pulled together ensembles. It’s easy to see who she takes her fashion cues from! Her mom rocked that red dress and those patent gogo boots like a boss.
At work, Jasmine, Acquisition Marketing Specialist, is always the first one wearing something that makes us say, “ooh,” “ahh,” and then promptly add it to our wishlist. Her mom’s pretty-in-pastel ensemble makes for a stunning special occasion look that’s timeless to this very day.

Emily is the talented Graphic Designer who made these awesome image collages, and she has an effortlessly cool sense of style. Here, her mom shows how to blend bold colors with feminine touches like florals and lace.
Old photographs of my mom have undoubtedly influenced my longterm love affair with vintage clothing. But in this case, I wanted to reimagine her classic, polished work-ready look through today’s lens. A tailored blazer paired with neutral heels and a chambray dress really get the job done.
+How are you planning to honor your mother on her special day?
