KRJ Comments: Style through the years…Christina Aguilera

KRJ Comments: Style through the years…Christina Aguilera

Orignially posted on Mom.me
written by Christine Bartsch

Singer-songwriter Christina Aguilera got her start at age 13, starring alongside the likes of Justin Timberlake, Britney Spears, Ryan Gosling and Keri Russell in “The All New Mickey Mouse Club.” Shedding the wholesome Disney image, Aguilera forged an experimental path for her musical career, from covering ‘40s classic hits to sexually explicit material and electronic beats. Now a mother to son Max and daughter Summer, Aguilera’s manages to remain true to herself through her personal style. “Aguilera’s sexy-chic personal style has remained consistent no matter what her life transition. This is an important message for every mom to glean: Cling to your personal style,” says Katie Rice Jones, author of the maternity fashion book, “Fashion Dues & Duen’ts,” and a nationally known style expert. Read more of my style commentary on Mom.me (part 3 of a 3-part celebrity series)…Style through the years

Holding a panel discussion

Designer jeans will likely be your singular most expensive maternity wear purchase. To get the most for your money it’s important to get-up-to-speed on the kinds of styling they offer. While cut (for instance: skinny or slim), rinse, and treatment are considerations, a maternity jean’s panel style is the most key. If you haven’t been pregnant before, jeans sporting stretchy panels can look sort of creepy. But trust me, these panels are genius. Use this chart to sort out the myriad of maternity panels and find your most flattering fit.

After a long, hard labor, I am proud to announce the birth of my first book,  Fashion Dues & Duen’ts; a Stylist’s Guide to Fashionably Embracing Your Baby Bump (Know Act Be Books, 2014).

About the Guide

As a longtime fashion stylist, I thought I knew everything about dressing stylishly. That was before I got pregnant. My first pregnancy really threw me for a fashion loop until I came to realize that my personal style didn’t have to change along with my physique. Whew!

Conceived from this reality comes my newest project Fashion Dues & Duen’ts; a Stylist’s Guide to Fashionably Embracing Your Baby Bump (Know Act Be Books, 2014). It’s a cheeky how-to style guide for pregnancy that assists you, the mom-to-be reader, through your nine months, in style, by offering the fashion dues (dos) and duen’ts (don’ts) on where to shop, what to wear, how to wear, and how much to spend. Between its covers you will…

  • Learn how to carry cute 
  • Tweak your maternity clothes from  f a t t e r i n g to flattering
  • Categorize your personal style
  • Single-out the maternity wear posers in your closet
  • Diminish the dreaded baby bump tag-alongs with the right maternity shapewear
  • Get the scoop on the tried, tested, & approved maternity must-dues
  • Avoid a personal style pregnant pause

Benefit from the dressing tricks I have gleaned from my two pregnancies along with the styling secrets and shopping tips I provide for my pregnant clients. Fashion Dues & Duen’ts makes “showing” with style easy by offering you the simple style tools needed to ultimately become your own bump stylist.
