10 Jennie Mai Summer Trends Styling Tips for busy moms

If you could have a style concierge or stylist, you’d effortlessly fab all the time just like celebrities. One lucky winner in a contest hosted by Colgate Optic White won a styling session with celebrity stylist Jeannie Mai last Friday, July25th.  Mai, who will co-host The Real with Bellyitch Bumpwatch alums Tamara Mowry-Housley  and Tamar Braxton- Herbert this fall, dressed the winner (above) in Walmart apparel, accessories and shoes in addition to sharing tips and tricks on how to rock the latest and greatest summer fashion trends without breaking the bank.
We’re in luck because Mai offers the following additional 10 styling tips to Bellyitch readers who also may want to make a statement without spending too much:
1. One of the most stylish and sensible ways you can partake in summer trends without jumping into temporary trends is to shop vintage. Today trends are taking strong struts from the past, and celebrities like Beyonce and Carrie Underwood are jumping right in. A good tip to help you  shop vintage and stand out is to aim for statement accessories that add the throwback to your modern wear. Tortoise shell sunnies, natural fiber woven clutches and bags, or low block heel footwear are essentials. One of my ultimate fave places around the world to shop at is in my very own home of Los Angeles. Decades on Melrose is a legendary must to all the fashion mavens everywhere. It’s worth the trip back in timeless style.

2. As a fashionista, it’s important to stay on top of the latest trends. This year’s Pantone color of the year is Radiant Orchid – so swipe some lavender polish onto your lovely nail beds the next time you go to the salon. Manis and pedis are fun and easy ways to add pops of color to your look.
3. I am a fan of a bright, bold lip. But if you are drawing attention to your lips you need to make sure your pearly whites are sparkling white. I recommend stashing lip colors with blue undertones and the new Colgate Optic White Toothbrush + Whitening Pen in your purse for an on-the-go beauty update.
4. Neon orange lips are officially in. The bright orange shade provides the necessary pop to your lips and looks great on multiple skin tones. 
5. While we all love to rock bright and bold colors, remember that black is and always will be classic. Make sure to keep a little black dress stashed in your closet to rock at the next event you attend or night out on the town.
6. Tie your look together with some great accessories. Adding a statement necklace can really set the tone for the rest of your outfit. You can really transition an outfit from day to night with the help of a stylish accessory.

7. Ladies, it’s all about the blue eye makeup these days! Apply shades of teal and seafoam to your eyelid or as a liner to make those gorgeous eyes of yours sparkle and shine.
8. Looking to jump on a fashion trend from the 90’s? Well ladies, you are in luck – overalls are back in full force! This laid back outfit looks comes as a romper or in the traditional full length get up 
– so why not have a blast from the past and rock the overall!

9.  Accessories are a girl’s best friend, am I right? We all love to dress up our look with bangles, earrings and the hottest new handbag. But ladies, don’t forget your best accessory is and always will be your smile! Make your smile pop by using the full Optic White line of products – brush, rinse, whiten and go for whiter teeth in just one day!
10. No one wants to feel weighed down, especially when it comes to their makeup. Instead of wearing a heavy foundation, try a tinted moisturizer – it provides the coverage you want/need in a light weight formula.
Excellent tips! Happy Summer Styling, ladies!
