Family Affair

Comfortable and chic fashions for mothers and daughters. PLUS: must-have accessories for busy moms and Shop Talk.

Color. It was all over the runways for spring, and we’ll continue to see it this fall. Transition hues such as turquoise, coral, and lavender
pop when paired with white. Pictured here, a clean, cuffed look for you
and a trendy, crinkled look for your daughter make you two quite the
pair. Big, beautiful bags hold all your shopping spree needs. Feet stay comfy and chic in croc loafers or ballet flats.
