How to keep your sense of style as a mom?
Mothers have a lot on their plate, and that’s often at the expense of personal appearance. This is why it’s so common to see busy moms dressed in whatever’s most comfortable. If you’re just like that, that is fine, because you probably have things that are more important. However, with a bit of effort, it’s possible to keep your sense of style. Here are some tips that will help you make that happen.
Determine your fashion preferences
In order to build or maintain your style, it’s important to know your fashion preferences. Many women tend to buy a lot of different clothing and accessory pieces, hoping it will help them look fashionable. In reality, your shopping habits should reflect your personal style. Therefore, it’s better to focus on items that you’d genuinely enjoy wearing.
That way, it will be easier for you to mix and match different pieces to create stunning outfit combos. Also, if you enjoy following trends, then make sure to learn about seasonal trends, so you’ll know what to pick in order to look your best.
There’s no need to sacrifice your own comfort
Moms who are too busy with day-to-day chores appreciate comfort and practicality above anything else. If you’ve been meaning to upgrade your fashion style, then keep in mind that you don’t need to sacrifice your comfort in order to achieve that. The great news is, activewear is quite popular right now, so you can freely opt for leggings and sneakers as your staple outfit pieces. If you pair that with some cool and fun accessories, you’ll look amazing and stylish despite not wearing conventionally elegant clothes.
You don’t have to say no to the heels
Heels are often seen as the pinnacle of elegance and style. But if you’re dealing with work, child-rearing, and household tasks, then heels are probably not on your agenda. But, if you want to look more fashionable, you can always opt for comfortable heels that have a heel up to 5 cm. And in case you want something more extravagant, you can choose higher chunky heels as they’ll give you enough comfort and stability to move around.
It is all about the little things
If you don’t have time to come up with different outfits each and every time, then feel free to look into various accessories. After all, the beauty typically lies in the little details. Hence, feel free to wear jeans and a sweater, but add something a little extra, such as elegant sustainable jewelry to make your outfit more glamorous. If you’re looking to accentuate what you’re wearing, or just to add a bit of spice to your outfit, then little details such as earrings, a necklace, or a scarf are all good ways to do so.
Take care of your skin and hair
Sure, panning every single outfit can be exhausting if you have a family to raise. But if you take care of your skin and hair, you’ll be more likely to feel comfortable and happy. First, you don’t need to have a perfect hairstyle all the time, but at least make sure that your hair is presentable. If you don’t have time to straighten or curl your hair, you can always master the art of a messy bun.
The same goes for your skin: applying layers of makeup might be too much work, but a skincare routine is something you should do regularly. Keeping your skin clean and fresh will help you feel more self-assured and happier.
If you have a particular style, then don’t give up on it
Some women have a unique fashion sense, and that’s amazing. If you’re someone like that, then there’s no reason to give up on your style, only to fit in. Moms often have to put up with various societal pressures, and that also includes dressing up to an extent. Keeping your sense of style even as a mom is also a great way to keep a connection to your old self. Also, if you want to make your lifestyle more eco-friendly, then feel free to consider having a sustainable wardrobe, especially since it’s also very practical for all busy moms out there.
You deserve to look great regardless of whether you have kids or not. But if you’re a mom, then you’re aware of all the challenges especially when it comes to appearance. These tips will help you look great, no matter how busy you are. Plus, you’ll be able to dress up in a simple, straightforward, and stylish way, that’s for sure.
