For many people, their personal styles are a way for them to express themselves and are a large part of their identity. This is usually when they are able to spend more time on themselves, working on their fashion choices and choosing specific outfits. As any new parent can tell you, when you become a mother, you donate much more of your time to the new life that you care for and spend less time being able to be concerned about what you wear.
While your style will never stop evolving, there are a lot of changes that come about when you become a parent. For example, practicality suddenly trumps attractiveness. However, you don’t need to completely compromise your individual fashion choices – here are a few of our tips to help you keep your style as a mom.
- Keep Makeup Simple
When you are looking after a young one, you aren’t able to spend a lot of time doing makeup like maybe you once enjoyed doing. Fortunately, you can still make a splash with your makeup while investing very little time in the process. For example, just a splash of mascara and red lipstick can brighten up your face and add some color to your look.
- Find Your Accessory
Larger, more “out there” jewelry accessories may seem a bit gaudy as a new mom, but you shouldn’t shy away from accessorizing. If you don’t have any ideas right off the bat, consider looking for some inspiration.
Many of us take fashion inspiration from famous people that we see on television or in the media. From their choices of clothing items to specific accessories, celebrities are always fun to draw style ideas from. We personally love this Kate Spade necklace that is a good way to add a splash of color and uniqueness to your outfit. You may also consider investing in a new phone case.

- It’s All About the Shoes
While shoes are easily one of the most overlooked details of an outfit when it comes to planning, but it is one of the first things many people notice when looking at your outfit. A good pair of shoes will enhance the way in which you strut into a room – literally. An average outfit can be amped up to instantly stylish with the right pair of shoes. Pointed toed flats and casual slip-on canvas shoes are a lot of fun, but a nice heel will give you a reason to feel a bit sexier and stand taller than usual.
- Rock the Denim
While sweats can be trendy and look really fashionable on some celebrities, they tend to just look overly casual when they are worn to the grocery store. Fortunately, jeans can be just as comfortable as your favorite pair of sweatpants. A good pair of jeans is a necessity for any parent’s wardrobe. Anybody that has ever gone jean shopping though knows that there are many different colors and styles to choose from, so how do you know what types to keep on hand?
A safe bet is to go for a healthy combination of comfort and style. For example, a comfortable pair of jeans that also make you feel sexy or simply just confident in yourself is an essential part of your wardrobe, so invest smartly and wear freely. And in case you haven’t heard, mom jeans are back in style – take advantage of this cozy trend while it lasts!
- Wrap it Up
Looking for a way to add some instant excitement to an outfit? Consider a scarf. Scarves are often underrated, as they can actually be the one statement accessory for you that will completely make your outfit without overpowering the rest of it. You don’t need to stress about being stuck with “mom clothes” and looking older than your years, a scarf is a perfect way to add a little playfulness to your wardrobe.
