-Don't get stuck in a time warp. (See above!) If you've worn your hair the same way you did in high school, it's time to update. Ditto for makeup. There are plenty of beauty experts available to help steer you into a new you. A new shade of nail polish can do wonders.

-Remember there are some new rules. No, your shoes and handbags do not have to match anymore. You can wear white anytime of year. Pantyhose are an option, not a must. But please don't wear them with open-toe shoes. Mixing two or even three different prints is also chic. So is mixing colors that clash. And you can wear black to a wedding.

-And then there are the fashion faux pas that are true for moms and their daughters: wet, see-through clothes, too short shorts, orange fake tans and all things visible: thongs, lip liner, panty lines. And oh, yes, don't forget Moms, the muffin tops and the "mom" jeans, of course.
