Fashion Tips For Moms On-The-Go
Have A Wardrobe Full Of Basics
You don’t have to be super trendy to be considered fashionable. Often, the classics work just as well, especially when you are well put-together. When you are off to your next shopping trip, selecting the basics will be to your advantage. If your wardrobe doesn’t have a lot of that, it’s time for you to stock up, especially if some items are on sale. That way, on super hectic days when you can’t pull out anything together, you have an “on-the-go” uniform that you can instantly put on.
Here are some of the basics that you should have:
- A nice pair of jeans
- White sneakers or ballet flats
- Plain white t-shirts
- Leggings or fleece lined leggings for the wintertime
- A casual jacket
- A casual dress
Replace Your Sweatshirts With Cardigans
Hear, hear. Gone are the days when oversized sweatshirts were the “in” thing. No, momma, it’s time for you to look a little bit more put-together. Fashion experts suggest replacing your oversized sweatshirts with cardigans. Leave the sweaters for when you’re at home! Cardigans are more versatile, as they can take you through the day, and even though windy summer nights. Plus, it gives your whole outfit that extra detail, too.
If you want to look clean and classic, you can stick with monochromatic colors of your cardigans. If you prefer to be more playful, you can go for colored cardis or metallic shades for a more evening-worthy get-up.
Stick To Colors You Love Wearing
As a mom, you need to be a little bit more subdued with your color options. Yes, you can still look youthful and playful, but you can do so with lesser bright colors. You can reserve the bright colors for your teenager. Plus, having too many colors on your wardrobe might take much of your time when mixing and matching them. Stylists suggest sticking only to the shades or colors that you know will look good on you or that you are confident wearing. When shopping, if you’re unsure about a color, then it is best for you to leave it. Don’t take it home.
But for young and hip moms who love colors, you need not worry! There is still a way for you to be playful with your colors. Do it with your bag or your shoes instead. That way, you don’t have to worry about matching it with the rest of your outfits. Because your outfit is subdued, your accent piece can then be your shoes or your bag.
If there’s one thing you shouldn’t forget in your whole look, it’s your accessories. Even if you can only wear one, that is already good enough. One single piece of jewelry goes a long way in making you look well-dressed. To make things easier and faster, stick to shopping for accessories or jewelry that aren’t hard to match with the rest of your outfits. In addition, buy only those that you are most comfortable wearing with kids around. Just because you’re off to the park with your kids or the grocery doesn’t mean you should look like you just got out of bed. Even a pair of earrings is enough to make you look like you prepared well for your day out.
