Jump up

It is a hard line for moms many times to decide what to wear out with their friends. On date night, it is easier; you might feel more comfortable wearing a lower cut top or a shorter skirt since you are with your hubby. However, when it comes to girls' night out, many moms still want to look fabulous, but not overly exposed. Some great options to try are a jumpsuit, like this bebe Sequin Shoulder Jumpsuit ($119,

Max out

Maxi dresses are definitely in this summer for day wear; however, evening maxi dresses are another great option. For a wild yet chic look, try this Chiffon Halter Maxi Dress by Express ($88, The halter style is a great option for moms of all bust sizes and the longer dress can camouflage any figure flaws. To wear maxi dresses in the evening, moms should look for materials like chiffon or silk to dress up the look. Be sure to pair them with strappy stilettos for an airy and light look.

Hot and bright

Bold colors are still all the rage this summer, so you should take advantage of this trend to wear something fun out with your friends. Try this one shoulder, bright blue party dress by Aqua ($84, The ruching on the side helps to make you look slimmer as you boogie the night away. For a similar look for less, try this Ruched Cowl Neck Dress by Forever 21 ($18, Even though these dresses are short, the ruching offers forgiveness on your figure, so they look terrific, not tight.

White and silver

Another gorgeous, tan-flaunting look is to pair white jeans with a metallic silver top. Try pairing this luxury metallic T-shirt by Mango seen above ($30, with silver platform stilettos such as these by Aldo ($56, The platform combined with the high heel will make your legs look longer and leaner in your white jeans. One final note; be sure to wear smoothing undergarments under this look, like the Skinny Britches Capri ($64, and the Hide & Sleek Adjustable Strap Cami ($44, Since everything shows up under white, you will need the smooth action from behind. Metallic fabrics can accentuate figure flaws, so you will want to create a smooth canvas under your top.
