Moms: Kathy and Marilyn, Era: 1970s
Welcome back to the ’70s, Lucky-style. I couldn’t decide between two incredible mid-to-late-’70s looks from moms in my book, My Mom Style Icon (shameless plug!). So I decided to showcase both. The first is a photo submitted by proud son Erick Cifuentes, who discovered this picture of his mom, Kathy, as a young woman living in Bogota, Colombia.

Brooke Berman’s mom, Marilyn, was a fashion publicist in the late ’70s, so she really knew what she was doing when she put together an outfit in the morning. Here she’s in an authentic DVF polka-dot wrap dress that’s impossible to find today, based on my cursory Google search. (I’m open to suggestion.) I did, however, pull together a “close enough” look.
