Here are some fashion tips for moms who want to look great without spending a lot of time and money:
Dress for yourself
If you’re a new mom and you’re trying to figure out what to wear each day, then make sure you choose clothes that you like. Don’t just opt for your old sweatshirt because it’s easy to get on and off when you’re breastfeeding, and don’t just throw on the first thing you can find in your closet. If you feel good about what you’re wearing, then it will show in your confidence.
Go with a Heel
Heeled shoes are the ultimate mom shoes because they elongate your legs and make your calves look amazing. They can also work as an instant outfit upgrade, even when you’re wearing something casual. If you’re going to spend money on one pair of shoes this season, make it a high heel.
Have your wardrobe tailored
If there are items in your closet that just don’t seem to fit right anymore, there is no reason to throw them away. Instead, take them to a tailor and have them altered to fit your new body shape. You’ll be surprised how much difference this can make.
Also, this will allow you to get more use out of the clothes that you already own instead of spending money on brand new items.
Neutral colors are another great way for moms to make their outfits stand out. Although some moms think they need to wear bright colors or patterns to look stylish, this is not true at all. Sticking with neutral colors like blue or black is the best thing for moms.
Buy some boots
You may not think that boots are fashionable but they are actually very stylish. Boots are great for moms because they can be worn in any season and they keep your feet warm during those cold winter months when you’re running errands or picking up groceries from the store.
Get rid of your sweatpants
It’s fine to wear them around the house on weekends or while running errands, but they shouldn’t be part of your regular wardrobe. Buying some well-cut jeans and a few flattering tops is an easy way to improve your look.
Add stylish outerwear
Even if you’re wearing a boring outfit underneath, you can always make it look better with a fun coat or jacket. Find one that flatters your figure and makes you feel good when you put it on.
Invest in nice shoes
You don’t need to spend a fortune on footwear, but don’t skimp either. A good pair of boots can make even the most basic outfit look polished and put together.
Keep accessories simple & classic
Instead of buying tons of statement necklaces and chunky bracelets, add interest with an elegant watch or scarf that will never go out of style.
Buy some new clothes
It can be easy to get stuck in a rut in terms of what you wear every day. If you want to change things up, buy some new tops and bottoms that are flattering to your body type. You can also try buying clothing from brands that are designed for women with your body shape, like Petite or Tall styles at Old Navy for example.
Think about your footwear choices as well
The shoes that you wear can say a lot about who you are when people see you from afar. It is important to find comfortable shoes that will work well for the activities that you have planned during the day, but also shoes that look great too.
Get a dark denim
Most moms would rather be comfortable than stylish. But, comfort doesn’t have to mean frumpy. If you don’t want to wear skinny jeans (can’t say I blame ya), try dark denim instead. It looks a little more dressed up than light or medium washes and can make you look put together even when you’re just hanging out at the house.
Baggy clothes may be an easy option, but they’ll make you look like your body has turned into a pile of mush (because you’ve been so busy taking care of everyone else which is totally cool) not to mention they’re also totally unflattering. So skip the slouchy clothes and go with fitted clothing instead. You’ll look better and feel better in them too.
A white T-shirt
And not just any white T-shirt one that fits well and looks good on you. White tees are essential in every woman’s wardrobe and can be worn with almost anything.
A blazer that makes you feel like a million bucks
Blazers are sharp and sophisticated, but they can be hard to pull off without looking like you’re getting ready for work (even if you don’t work). Find one that fits well and looks great on you even if it means spending a little more than usual and wearing it with pride. It’ll make any outfit look instantly more pulled together.
Get good hair
Great hair is one of the biggest confidence boosters (or killers) in your quest to look great as a mom. So what if you don’t have the time or money to get your hair done every week? You can still make your hair look good.
But you need a haircut or style that works with your hair type and texture. A great cut should be styled less because it has more shape and body. Don’t be afraid to experiment with different cuts and styles and try something new.
Get yourself a quality perfume
There is nothing worse than smelling like a musty diaper or spilled milk while trying to get through the day. If you want to freshen up throughout the day, you can use perfume fragrances on your wrists and neck.
A lot of mamas I know like wearing essential oils because they have great smells and they last most of the day. If you’re not into essential oils, another alternative is powder fragrances which work well for moms who need something quick and easy.
Most importantly, don’t feel that you need to restrict your sense of style or limit your fashion choices. It’s okay to experiment a little as long as it makes you feel good about yourself and the image that you are projecting.
You will never regret a wardrobe decision made out of self-confidence, so don’t hesitate to express your fun personality through fashion.
