As parents, we are perpetually low on time. As such, fashion often takes a backseat to our busy schedules. In many cases, we simply have to throw on the first functional clothing item we find in our closet and continue on with our jam-packed day. However, just because we have less time to pick out outfits doesn’t mean we don’t want to look good. To keep up with your full schedule and still look stylish, stock your closet with these clothing items all busy moms need in their wardrobe.
When running from one task to the next and chasing after your little ones, heels aren’t the most practical footwear option. Instead, consider a stylish and comfortable pair of flats. With so many options to choose from, you’ll find a pair of flats that speaks to your style. For a polished and classic look, consider a nice pair of oxfords or ballet flats. If your style is on the casual and laid-back side, try out some espadrilles or canvas shoes. You truly have endless options.
A Casual Dress
When putting together an effortlessly stylish outfit, a dress is your best friend. Rather than deciding which top and bottom will work well with each other, all you have to do is throw on one simple piece and you’re ready to go. Despite requiring minimal energy, a cute dress always look high effort and chic. Plus, if you ask me, dresses are one of the most comfortable articles of clothing that exists.
While I love to accessorize with more brightly colored pieces, neutral tops are a lifesaver when putting together outfits on a time-crunch. When I don’t have the time—or energy—to mix and match patterned or colorful pieces together, neutral pieces make composing a classy outfit so easy I could do it blindfolded. Because neutral tops eliminate the potential for clashing, using them to create an outfit requires minimal brainpower.
Another key clothing item all busy moms need in their wardrobe is a quality pair of thick leggings. Leggings are comfortable and versatile, which will allow you to easily transition from the grocery store to the gym at a moment’s notice. If you’re not a fan of standard black leggings, consider opting for one of the many other legging styles available, such as crushed velvet or faux-leather leggings to spice up your look.
