Find the Perfect Mom Fashion to Fit Your Personal Style
Becoming a mom is a life-changing milestone that affects everything from your sleep schedule to your wardrobe. But just because your fashion choices are now driven more by practicality and comfort than by the latest looks on the runway doesn’t mean you can’t dress with style and—dare we say it?—even a bit of flair.
Mom fashion has come a long way in recent years, and ease doesn’t necessarily mean frump anymore. As leisure and athletic wear have become more popular, comfy casual pieces now come in chic cuts and colors. Even office-ready separates are made with fabrics that are simple to wear and care for.
There’s no right answer to the question of how to dress like a mom: there are endless mommy styles out there, each one reflecting specific needs and lifestyles. Whether you’re a new stay-at-home nursing mom or have older kids and are balancing home and career, here are some tips and suggestions for creating a mom look that both streamlines your morning schedule and makes you feel your best.
Fashion and Motherhood
Fashion and motherhood may seem as incompatible as oil and water, but not all fashionable looks are uncomfortable and impracticable. The trick is finding pieces that are stylish and can stand up to the rigors of your daily schedule.
Now that you’re a mom, time is of the essence, and you need a wardrobe favoring ease of wear and care. You don’t want to waste precious time coordinating hard-to-match separates or dropping silk blouses at the dry cleaner. If you have active little ones, you’ll also need separates that move with you so you can get down on the floor to play or hoist a toddler on your hip without tearing open seams or popping buttons. Motherhood also can bring with it a new body shape post-pregnancy, and you want to find a mom clothes style and cut that flatters your silhouette and makes you feel confident and comfortable both at home and at work.
Instead of considering your role as a mom a limiting factor in your fashion choices, use it as an inspiration to rework your wardrobe to fit your new daily routine. If you’re not sure where to begin, we’re here with some style help for moms from basic separates that form the foundation of your look to tips on how to curate an overall mom style that makes you look fabulous every day.
