Mums, you can do it! Simple ways to always look chic and be fabulous
Looking good is not an easy job, especially if you’re a mum. Days start to feel shorter, children grow to be the centre of your world, and self-care becomes a thing of your past. Most mums neglect their looks due to the myriad of obligations they have, ranging from work, through house chores, to dedicating time to their children.
This often results in decreased self-confidence and has a negative effect on your mental well-being, as well as your social, professional, and family relations. Despite the demanding schedule that you’re sometimes only barely coping with, you must remember to squeeze in some time for nurturing your beauty and showing off your gorgeous self!
Being a mum and looking fantastic are not mutually exclusive choices. Embrace your fabulousness and stop giving in to the worn-out mum look. Even on your busiest days, these simple tricks below will bring your inner fashionista out to the light of day and make you feel good about yourself and the way you look.
In order to be noticed and noted as chic and fashionable, you’ll need a unique, one-of-a-kind statement piece! Accessorizing is usually the best way to do so, and it’s also the most fun part of dressing up, leaving room for your imagination and experimenting. Your signature piece can be anything really, and you can get as creative as you wish, as long as it doesn’t overshadow the rest of your outfit. However, purchasing a trendy personalised clothing item may be the best way to add a personal touch to your outfit and become a true fashionista mom!
Shop for timeless items
You want to look trendy and chic, but elegant and mom-like at the same time. This is why you need classic items in your wardrobe, instead of hoarding short-lived trendy items. Maintaining a certain amount of the classic look is a must for a working mom, even in the most casual outfits. Of course, this does not mean that you should totally abandon the current trends – make room for some of this season’s hot pieces of clothing and accessories but make sure to have a couple of safe choices in your wardrobe for ad hoc occasions!
Turn casual into chic
Freshen up your wardrobe with some chic street-style items and opt for an eye-catching outfit even while running errands on a daily basis! If you’re a mom who feels her best in sweats, oversized sweaters, or yoga pants (and don’t we all?), not only is it possible to wear these items for any sort of occasion now, but it’s even recommended by the fashion queen, Gigi Hadid. Combining yoga pants with a biker leather jacket, bold lip color, and stylish sunglasses (which serve not only for the good old diva look, but perfectly cover your eye bags as well!) will make you look like a supermodel hiding from the paparazzi! So, the next time you try giving yourself the usual excuse that looking fashionable means feeling uncomfortable, remember that athleisure look is both comfortable and attractive.
Be bold with colors
The most stylish outfits are often the ones with the boldest color choices and combinations. This also applies to makeup. This is the beauty of today’s fashion trend of trying hard to look like you don’t try – you really don’t have to try. Putting your hair in a messy bun in combination with a vivid orange lipstick will create an I-woke-up-like-this stunning look! Moreover, adding one of the many great and fresh colors of this season to a simple outfit is all you need for a bold fashion statement. So, run to the stores and spice up your wardrobe with some cool and vibrant colors.
We know – having your style under control isn’t as effortless as it used to be back then when you were younger, carefree, and without motherly obligations. For days when you have no energy, will, or time to care about the way you’ll look upon stepping out of your apartment, these simple tricks can help you be a chic mom!
