Share Photos of Your Fashionable Moms

The Root wants to highlight vintage photos of your styling mom on Mother's Day.

When we look back at some of our mothers' fashion choices from decades past, we either cringe or find inspiration. It matters not, because you couldn't tell those divas anything back in the day!

We at The Root want to celebrate our readers' moms this Mother's Day with a gallery of fun vintage photos. Upload your favorite old picture to our Facebook page -- along with your mom's name, when the photo was taken and a few words about her signature style -- and we will feature her in our Mother's Day slideshow. Don’t forget to include grandmothers, aunts or any other mother figure near and dear to your heart!

While you're digging through your archives, take a look at our fly and fashionable Father's Day gallery from 2011.

Check back on Mother's Day weekend for our photo collection of reader-submitted Mother's Day photos. Happy posting!
