With the AddMonths() and AddDays() methods, for example like this:
$Today = Get-Date
$LastMonth = $Today.AddMonths(-1) | Get-Date -Format "MMMM"
$Yesterday = $Today.AddDays(-1)
$Tomorrow = $Today.AddDays(1)

Open in new window

You can pipe any object to Get-Member (or the "gm" alias) to find the methods supported. In this case: Get-Date | gm
