How to dress like the ladies on ABC’s Modern Family

I wrote this post over on the zulily blog and got a lot of good reactions from it, so I wanted to share it today over here!

Do you watch Modern Family?

It’s one of the funniest TV shows in the world… at least in my opinion. 😉

I have had so many readers ask me to help them find some items that Claire (Julie Bowen) or Gloria (Sofia Vergara) would wear, so I thought it would be fun to do a fashion post on them today!

So how can you dress like one of the ladies on Modern Family? (And let me remind you, they’re both moms… on and off the show!)

Let’s go with Claire first… she’s very preppy and classic, she doesn’t push the envelope with fashion. In my opinion, she dresses very much like a “regular” mom. She’s appropriate and put together and comfortable in her clothing choices…

And then we have Gloria… she’s sexy and trendy and very fashion-forward. She loves color and boldness and likes to have a lot of fun with her fashion choices. She’s the opposite of Claire! 😉

So what would Gloria wear to the same places?

    I love this post!!! I was just catching up on Modern Family today and thought that Claire is always dressed how I want to be dressed. If I ever move away from my black yoga pant/white t-shirt uniform, I would love to know where to find these Claire clothes!
