As a busy mom, you likely don’t have the time to think too much about the fashion and style choices that you make. Some things just become less important when you’re raising children– you’re strapped for time and something has got to give. It happens.
However, perhaps there are changes you can make to the way you approach fashion and style; changes that mean you can ensure that there is always room for a nod to style in the way that you dress. If you go through the below, you may just be able to find time in your schedule that allows you to be a mom– and a stylish one at that.
Define Your Shape
At the core of every great outfit is your body; this is the structure over which you will drape the clothes you want to wear. Taking time to ensure your body is in good condition is the beginning of all great style journeys.
There are various ways you can improve your body; you could try a new exercise regime, start lifting weights so as to tone up and achieve your dream body, or explore your surgery options with the likes of David Halpern, MD. You will find that when you have a body you are comfortable with, it is far easier to find styles that look and feel good on your shape. You can buy clothes off-the-rack and be sure they will fit well, helping to cut the time you have to spend pondering what you can wear.
Find The Colors That Work For You
The idea of getting your colors done is rather old-fashioned, but there’s some truth behind this old style staple. No color looks good on everyone; we’re all too different, with different skintones, eye color, and hair color. Some colors will wash you out; others will complement you and make you look more vibrant and stylish as a result.
Perhaps the most important aspect of understanding how color works with your body is to know your skin undertones. When you have an idea of this, you can build a wardrobe that is always going to flatter you, even if you dye your hair or get a suntan. Establish your undertones, then work from there.
Build A Wardrobe Of Core Basics
If you’re in a rush of a morning, the last thing you want to do is have to sift through your entire closet to find something to wear. That’s why you should try and build complete outfits for these common eventualities:
- Taking your children to the park; something casual that you feel comfortable in, shoes that you can wear for hours without discomfort.
- Going to a meeting with your children’s teachers; something smarter without being too formal.
- Just running errands; casual but stylish, nothing too fussy.
Assemble these outfits and store them in a box; you can roll the clothes rather than fold them to avoid creases. Then, if you’re in a rush, you can just grab the appropriate box and know you’ve got everything you need to hand.
If you follow the tips above, you can be confident of being able to be a busy mom with a great stylish twist. Enjoy!
