She understands the fights between daughters, who often want to go out looking as if they’re turning tricks, and mothers, many of whom haven’t updated their wardrobes in decades.
“Look I am 42, and I am very confident in how I dress,” Salomone says. “My mother will still say, ‘I don’t know that I like that.’ It’s a hot topic because it’s so emotionally loaded.”
For moms, who aren’t buying clothes until they lose weight, Salomone advises investing in a gym membership and a larger-sized, yet smaller wardrobe.
Though all women are different, Salomone cites what every woman needs: ” A great cocktail dress, the little black dress works,” she says.
It needs to be versatile. A great cardigan, or sweater set is also crucial. “A great man-tailored white shirt is really key; you can throw it on with a skirt and a pair of jeans. And, everybody should be able to find a great fitting pair of jeans.”
