As a busy mother, many aspects of your life tend to take a backseat once you have children. Of these, your personal style is most likely to take the first hit. This is completely understandable as you are probably spending most of your time focused on simply surviving the early stages of motherhood.
Once you’ve had time to get more comfortable with your new lifestyle and you’re ready to feel a little more like your old self, you’ll finally have time to put additional effort into your everyday outfits. This fall, try incorporating a few easy and fashionable pieces into your wardrobe to make your transition back to effortless, elevated style!
Building a stylish look after a period of time wearing mostly comfortable sweats and pajamas may be challenging at first. However, once you have a few stylish pieces in your wardrobe that you can create an outfit around, making the transition will become much easier.
To do this in a way that is not overwhelming, be sure to take this process step by step. Start with the basics: underwear. As the foundation of every outfit, your underwear are your first step to getting your style back on track. Rather than wearing the same old style of worn out panties that have been your go-to for the past months, treat yourself to a new pair of figure-smoothing undies in a neutral color that can be worn under almost any outfit. Not only will you avoid any unwanted panty lines, but you’ll feel comfortable and stylish in a versatile pair of underwear.
One of the easiest ways to look stylish and put-together this fall is with a statement coat. As a fool-proof way to cover up even the most casual outfits, a statement coat instantly makes you look like you took plenty of time to craft the perfect outfit.
When selecting a coat for the autumn season, try out a patterned piece in an oversized plaid print and/or signature fall colors like brown, gold, and burgundy. As for the silhouette of the coat, a trench style or even a bomber jacket are great options for keeping warm and adding a stylish touch to any outfit you choose to wear underneath.
Carrying a trendy bag with any of your outfits is another great way to look stylish without trying too hard. The smallest details can take any outfit from drab to fab—including your handbag! Investing in an expensive designer bag is probably not the best option when going for a trend piece, so look instead at some mid-range fashion retailers for a bag that is both stylish and affordable. Incorporating a single trendy item into your outfit helps elevate your look without being over the top.
As a mom, functionality usually comes first when it comes to getting dressed. Fortunately, when it comes to shoes, you don’t have to forsake comfort for style, and vice versa. For a pair of shoes that are both comfortable and in-season, boots are a great option for any stylish mom. This style of shoe can be worn casually, or dressed-up, and are great for spending time indoors or outside with your kids. These days, functionality is becoming increasingly trendy, making it simple for moms like you to have the best of both worlds!
