Being a mom is definitely one of the most difficult jobs. Juggling chores, responsibilities you have towards the kids – such as driving them to school, soccer (or any other) practice, managing to get them to the extracurricular activities – doing the shopping, and still having time for yourself is not an easy job. If you want to be a stylish mom, then the job is even harder. But how can you manage to be a stylish yet a successful mom? Take a look at these tips that are not only stylish, but also cool and quite comfortable.
1. Choose the colors wisely
Basically, the first thing you need to do is keep your close neatly organized and choose the colors wisely. Why wisely? Well, first of all, you probably won’t have plenty of time to think about the color combination that you are going to rock, so keeping the colors plain, such as going for white, black, grey or some earthy tones is the safest option. If you want to incorporate a piece of clothing that bright, such as canary yellow, neon green or orange (which are huge right now), it is going to be much easier if you choose grey or black as the other color.
2. Know which pieces to go for
Next up, there is always the problem of matching different pieces. Apart from choosing neutral colors that will make the dressing up and styling yourself easier, you should also opt for pieces that are simple yet that can be matched in many different ways. For example, having a pair of high waisted jeans in your closet will make your styling routine easier, as they are very versatile. If you choose to tuck your shirt or t-shirt in them, you will get a very professional yet laid-back style, but if you choose to untuck it, you have yourself a completely different look whatsoever. So, investing in them, and in other pieces that are versatile is the best possible idea.
3. Pay attention to your hair
In order to make the most of your look, you need to pay attention to everything. If you are not satisfied with the choice of your clothes, for example, or if you think that they are too basic, then it means that you need to switch the focal point of your look onto something else. And is there anything better to shift your focus on than your hair? This is why you should pay attention to the state of your hair – invest in a good shampoo and conditioner, sometimes you might even use dry shampoo as first aid, and you will be good to go. When you have nice hair, you do not need to have a killer outfit.
4. Natural makeup
As far as makeup is concerned, do not overdo it. You’re a mom, and you want to be a stylish but comfortable one. There is nothing comfortable with putting a lot of makeup on, so you should focus on natural makeup and nude colors. Having powder, SPF cream, mascara, and a lip gloss is more than enough, but if you want to be bold, you can always go with some light eye shadow and a signature lipstick, or the other way around. It is important to highlight one part of your face – so make it either your eyes or your lips. Highlighting the lips is easier and faster, which might be detrimental to your (lack of) time.
5. Opt for shirtdresses
One great way to stay stylish, cool and comfortable at the same time while spending as little time as possible is by opting for shirtdresses. This is an amazing way to kill two birds with one stone, and not only will you look very cute and businessy, but comfortable as well, as we all know that wearing shirts is not the most comfortable piece of clothing out there. Match this with high heels and a nice hairstyle and there you go.
6. Accessorize it
As a final piece of advice, it would be time to take out all of the accessories that you might be having. Necklaces, bracelets, watches, rings and earrings are all amazing items that can make your look quite interesting and much more unique. Of course, pay attention to how much accessories you are going to wear, as overdoing it might kill your outfit.
As you can see, it is not very difficult to be stylish and a mom with not so much time on her hands. Simply choose items that are practical and cool, and mind the colors.
