It is difficult to choose both comfortable and stylish clothing for anyone. But it is especially difficult when having a busy agenda like moms do, between kids, work, household chores, etc.
Of course, choosing to be comfortable over stylish is easy. But comfortable doesn’t need to be ‘boring’ or mean that you have to settle for an outfit that doesn’t express your personality. You can still take it easy and look beautiful!
So for us moms out there (and for those who just have packed schedules!), it’s important to remember we can go from colorful and comfy to stylish.
Ladies first, moms right after
This year, there are colors and shapes that are trendy and can also making pulling together an outfit a lot easier. For example, color is popular this year: bold, bright shades of color as well as pastels. The suit is a classic that we are now seeing rightfully paired or dressed down with denim. Another style that is easy to dress down and still look put together is ‘low key utility’. Think modern take on the cargo pant, belted utility jackets and utility jumpsuits.
Stylists love to play with various styles, colors and shapes. If I think of this magic trio many stylists’ fancy and chic clothing lines come to mind. Luckily these days they are just one click away, as for instance Luisaviaroma’s website where you can find this kind of creative fashion: Versace’s clothing best represent the right combination of all of the time. Versace offers a great choice range with the Versace dresses for women and more, whether you are feeling like wearing a “basic, every-day” outfit or you want to shine for a “grande soirée” with your beloved sweetheart.
For moms always on the run
Moms are always busy and running everywhere. So having a go-to outfit and knowing the right combination to pull can make it a lot easier to get ready quickly and look put together. Choosing fewer clothes that look great together can be the solution. Have you ever heard of the ‘capsule wardrobe’ or ‘capsule’ style…? It consists of fewer pieces, but more looks because everything (or almost everything) goes together. So start out by thinking about what your day-to-day looks like. What do you want to wear? What do you actually wear? What is realistic to wear? It is helpful to consider a color palette that you typically reach for. This will give you a few ideas for the color combination piece. Then consider the types of pieces that you are comfortable in, but also feel stylish in. It’s amazing what a third piece can do, daytime jewelry or a pair of comfortable heels!
For example, if you love yellow: you can select a yellow top and a pair of black trousers as one combination.
- A pair of black trousers matched with a simple yellow tank and sandals can give you a casual look.
- The same black trousers with a yellow blouse, an elegant purse, and high heels will give you an elegant look.
At the end of the day, the phrase ‘less is more’ really does apply here! If you learn how to match the right pieces of clothing, you’ll bring more style and less stress into your busy life. As a mom, you already make enough decisions and are enough of a busy bee every day. Don’t stare at your closet, trying on a ton of outfits and ending up not feeling confident in what you wear… be creative, pick the right outfits and show the world the queen that you are!
