The wait is finally over! Tonight, with the season premiere of ABC’s Emmy-winning Modern Family, we’ll be reunited with the Pritchett and Dunphy clans for what promises to be an evening of non-stop laughter. To celebrate the occasion, we’re highlighting Gloria Pritchett’s flawless style and offering some handy tips on how to channel her feisty fabulousness in all its va-va-voom glory.
Arguably the best-dressed TV mom of all time— surpassing such chic ladies as June Cleaver, Carmela Soprano, Claire Huxtable, Lorelai Gilmore, and Carol Brady —Gloria Pritchett looks impeccable in every situation. Whether lounging on a beach chair during a family vacation to Australia, cheering for her wise-beyond-his-years son, Manny at a fencing meet, doting upon her infant son Fulgencio, going on a date with her husband Jay, getting mani-pedis with her step-granddaughter Haley, learning how to ride a bike, or just picking up the dry cleaning, Gloria Pritchett is always dressed to impress.
Never one to shy away from flaunting her enviable figure, Gloria always manages to look sexy but sophisticated, favoring snug wrap dresses and blouses boasting surplice or V-shaped necklines that reveal a hint of cleavage.
To follow her lead, try the stretchy knit Sofia by Sofia Vergara long-sleeve wrap tunic, which features a sexy faux wrap front, as well as asymmetrical draping and a side seam that create a slimming, ruched effect. Thanks to its tunic-length hemline, this top works beautifully with skinny jeans and printed leggings.
Next, dare to venture away from somber neutral shades and instead try wearing vivacious jewel tones that will brighten up any room. Take your vivacious approach to fashion further by incorporating splashy prints like zebra stripes, tropical flowers, python scales, chevron patterns, or Gloria’s favorite: leopard spots.
To give your ensemble even more of a Gloria-approved feel, pair this tunic with the black Sofia by Sofia Vergara ruched print leggings, which feature white leopard spots and a tapered fit along the legs and ruched leg openings. Complete the look with a statement necklace and sky-high heels.
Ahí está! Now that you know how to get Gloria’s look, you can head out and feel like the ultimate head-turning vixen!
