When it comes to Kate Hudson‘s style, we think of sunshine, flip flops and boho fashion, much like her California-chic mom, Goldie Hawn. Goldie’s laid-back yet stylish look seems to have rubbed off on her starlet daughter, who was recently honored by Elle as a style icon. Goldie seems to be passing along all of the best fashion advice to Kate, but the editors at StyleWatch want to know what words of wardrobe wisdom your mothers have given you? Tell us: What was the best–or worst–style advice you’ve ever gotten from your mother?

Although my mom can be brutal sometimes with her feedback, she’s so picky that I know I look good if she tells me I look really good. And I love the fact that she’s the only person I know who truthfully answers these questions: “Does this make me look fat?” “Does this look weird?” “What do you think of this outfit?”

And I love that my mom has also come so far fashion-wise and dresses like a classic now. She really reminds me of Audrey Hepburn meets Grace Kelly. =) We both are pretty brutally honest with each other and fashionably, it has paid off. =D I think all stylists need to be brutally honest. =)

Your bra and underwear always have to match.

Mom told me never to buy anything ‘too fashionable’ since it would soon be ‘out of fashion’. Instead she showed me to get well tailored pieces that were timeless, since good taste ‘never went out of style’.
