Keeping up with trends is one way to be "that" mom — the one who always looks modern and youthful. That doesn't mean you should dress like a teenager, but it does require an awareness of the current styles to know which ones to follow and which ones to leave to the kids.
This coming fall, not all trends are conducive to a mom's lifestyle. Sure, fur is nice, but it's hardly appropriate for a varsity basketball game — even in Dallas. However, there are many fall 2013 trends suited for play dates, watching cheerleader tryouts or chaperoning a school dance.
Because you don't time have to sift through them on your own, we've done the work for you. From leather to plaid, these top trends can help fluff up your fall wardrobe. Just a few key pieces can make a big impact.
