If you asked me a few years ago to pick out an outfit of my mother’s to copy I probably would have put on a sleeping bag & called it a day because really, who wants to dress like their mum? But recently, I’ve discovered (by raiding through my parents old stuff) that my mum actually had pretty good style. These days, my mum’s more into cooking than clothing so when I was asked to match her style with ASOS I had to put my raiding skills to good use & dig up some old photos. Surprisingly, it was difficult to choose an outfit to emulate, not because she didn’t know how to dress but because she really knew how to back then (lol, sorry mum) but I couldn’t go past her take on a classic blue jeans, white shirt outfit because if my mum can pull that off, surely I can.

So tell me: what do you guys think of wearing your mom’s style & who wore it better? Vote below!

  • This is such a good idea! I love looking at pictures on my mum and even my grandma from the 70’s and 80’s they both had killer style x

    this is such a cool project! my mum has a lovely taste on fashion (thankfully!) and a bunch of cool blazers to steal (she has this green tartan blazer from zara that i’m hoping to steal someday) but her style is very office like so i probably wouldn’t be able to pull off!

  • Love your wrap top, and what a great outfit to be inspired by! 🙂

    I think I dress really similarly to my mum when she was my age – probably partly because I have a lot of vintage pieces from her in my wardrobe! 😉 And partly because she dressed so well, lots of prints and skirts and it’s the kind of style I really like. She’s more into pants now that she’s older, but we still get a giggle when we go out shopping together and both pick up the same top or dress to try on!

    Firstly, thank you for your AWESOME comment on my blog. I completely agree, I cannot have an outfit with an edge to it as well because without it really what’s the fun in that? Secondly, what a cool idea for a post. #YouWoreItBetterTho but your mum is still super cute!


  • Aww, this is such a good idea! Super cute too. Love the white sneakers you styled with it. I’ve seen some old photos of my mom and she looked like Catherine Zeta Jones and wore high waisted black shorts and black tank tops haha.

    • OMG Angela, I actually snorted when I read that! That has to be the funniest comment on my blog I’ve ever received!

      • But it is truuuuue! She seriously had the worst taste ever. She had this gold and black sequin and bead BAGGY top that was in her closet for years! I cut it up as a teen and she was super mad saying it “was her favourite” It was my favourite too, to cut up that is! Seriously, shame on her! hehe

  • Love the gold accessories and how you belted the top, very cool.

    Love the look!

  • Oh, I LOVE this post! I think the both of you wore the look just as well. I’m a huge believer in reusing old clothes so most of my clothes come from my mum’s old closet (authentic vintage, HELLO) and it’s so fun to emulate the 70s, 80s and 90s with a contemporary twist. A white top and blue jeans can never fail!

    This is so cool, love how simple the outfit is !

  • My mum and I had exactly the same jeans 😛 (they had very obvious patterens).
    I think you did great job impressionating your mum with those cloths. This is perfect example of what ”style’s eternal” truly means. 🙂




  • Your mom is a one chic stylish woman.

    I love how you copy her style– love it
