Dressing up is all about style and looking and feeling good. But moms with young kids know that it’s just not the same for them. Comfort is most important for almost everyone, but especially for moms, and that makes it a bit trickier when buying outfits. And if you’re a mom that’s constantly running around, managing life and kids, then taking out time to sift through fashion choices is near impossible. That’s when staple pieces come to your rescue; you can always mix and match them to create a trendy outfit! If you’re struggling with your outfits, here are some staple pieces that deserve a front row in your wardrobe.
1. Denim Shirt
Everyone raves about the versatility of denim jeans, but what about denim shirts? Just like a pair of jeans, denim button-downs are a must in everyone’s wardrobe, especially for the moms that are always in a rush. Dress it up with a skirt and accessories or dress it down with black tights — it’s one piece that can take you from day to night in a breeze.
2. A Silk Scarf
Being a busy mom means you have little to no time to waste on building a proper outfit. For the days you’re in a fix, a striking silk scarf can be your saviour. There’s just something about a silk scarf that can spruce up any outfit. Whether you’re wearing a dull kurta or a plain white tee, a printed silk scarf around your neck will turn you into a hot mama in a snap!
3. A Cool Cross Body Bag
If you’re an on-the-go mom, a cross body bag is worth investing in. Firstly, they’re lightweight, which means you can wear them while carrying your baby. Secondly, they’re packed with pockets – which is essential – and they keep your hands free. As a mother, these are all blessings! And all while keeping your chic factor high.
4. Structured Blazer
No time to iron your shirt? Not a problem! Pick a tank top, layer it with a chic blazer and you’re ready to seize the day. Just like a scarf, a blazer can turn your outfit from drab to fab in an instant! Trust us, moms, this will be life changing!
5. Black Shalwar Kameez
When it comes to Eastern wear, a plain black shalwar kameez is a classic and versatile option. It requires minimal effort and looks super trendy. To brighten it up, all you have to do is wear a colourful dupatta. But unlike white, you don’t have to worry about your black shalwar kameez getting stained or dirty, because it’ll barely be visible! Chic, comfortable and practical – what else do you need?
6. Neutral Flats
Just the thought of walking around in heels is a nightmare for the best of us, especially mothers! Sneakers can save you on casual occasions, but when you have to go formal, an elegant pair of flats is your best bet! They complement all kinds of outfits and work for every occasion. Opt for neutral shades such as black, white, or brown as they’ll go with everything.
7. Black Tights
We’d recommend black tights as a staple for everyone, but they’re an absolute must for moms. They’re really fuss-free and don’t require ironing – unlike most other pants. They’re also versatile enough to be paired with anything, Eastern or Western, and look chic either way!
