It’s not something we spend enough time talking about pre-baby, but after you have kids you may find maintaining your style to be a bit more of a challenge. Here are a few tips for rocking your style as a busy mom.
Change When You Get Home
When you can, change out of your dry cleanables and office attire into a second look once you get home. Don’t think of this as dressing down, but as minimizing the risk of your investment pieces getting soiled while playing with the kids. If you won’t be heading home, change before you leave the office.
Whether going from work to kid’s extracurricular activities, from the gym to pick up the kids from their playdate, or running non-stop on the weekends—invest in versatile items that ensure you look and feel like you no matter where you are. This includes weekend and after-hours athleisurewear, denim that can be dressed up and down, and outfits that strike the perfect balance of comfort and style, making them appropriate for a variety of activities and occasions.
Accessories are a mom’s best friend. Take off the blazer, jewelry, and stilettos and your jeans, fitted t-shirt, and trainers make it easy to play. Scarves remain a fan-favorite for busy moms as they instantly add color and style to casual outfits. When a heel won’t do, wear a ballet flat, wedge, or fun sandal. You can always wear a stylish handbag and jewelry.
Here’s to looking your best no matter how full your family schedule!
