6 Items Every Mom Should Have in Her Wardrobe

Once you become a mom, everything changes. However, being busy all day every day shouldn’t be an excuse not to look polished and put-together. From stylish yet comfortable footwear to simple, classic pieces that can be dressed up and down, we’re listing six essentials every mom should have in her wardrobe in order to look chic and stylish – no matter the occasion. Take notes!

A pair of comfy denim jeans that fit like a glove

If there’s one thing that virtually everyone has to have in their wardrobe, it’s a pair of comfy denim jeans. While trends come and go, this timeless piece manages to stand the test of time, and every mom needs a pair. Why? They’re simple to style, can easily be dressed up and down, and work for many different occasions – from running errands and going for a brunch to chasing after kids and going for a casual outing. Go for dark wash denim which has a slimming effect, and make sure they hug and stretch in all the right places. Definitely avoid models with bleaching on thighs and hips – they visually expand these areas, so keep that in mind when choosing your perfect pair of jeans.

A couple of basic tanks, tees, and camisoles as classic staple pieces

Aside from classic bottoms, you want to also look for tops that are simple in design and have a classic cut. Tanks, tees, and camisoles – these capsule wardrobe pieces will serve as the foundation for a number of outfit combinations, especially if you stick with a neutral color palette. Gray, white, beige, and black mix with virtually everything, and just like denim, styling them is pretty easy and effortless, really. Bonus tip: go for camisoles with built-in bras – they’ll support your bust and make dressing up in the morning a tad easier.

A no-fuss, grab-and-go printed dress that is chic and comfortable

For those hectic, I-have-nothing-to-wear morning breakdowns, a form-fitting, no-fuss, grab-and-go dress is just what you need. Now, shopping with kids can be hectic, especially when you’re a new mom and are just starting to figure everything out. So, why not use technology to your advantage and do your shopping online? Do yourself a favor and check out some online dress stores and browse until you find something that suits your style and taste. Whether you like maxi, midi, or mini dresses, you can easily order something that works for you. A dress will give you a feminine flair and help you look chic and put-together – without even trying!

A blazer or cardigan you can throw on for an extra layer

Now that you’ve got pieces that act as the foundation, you want to make sure you get garments you can use to layer your outfit. The great thing about layers is that they make you look like you’ve put some time and effort into your look, and are a great way to transition your outfit from day to night to accommodate changing seasons. A tailored blazer will make you look polished and sophisticated, while a stylish cardigan will keep you both comfy and chic. Stick with neutrals to get the most wear out of these classic, timeless garments.

An extra-large quality tote in a neutral color

Of course, every mom understands that small bags simply don’t work once you have a baby. Now that you’re a mommy, there are so many things you need to pack and always have at hand, just in case. However, that doesn’t mean you have to compromise on style. Go for a tote that complements the rest of your wardrobe and choose a color you can pair with everything – neutral colors are your safe bet. As for the size, it’s best to go or an extra-large one that will fit everything you need, whether you’re hitting the gym, heading to work, or going for a weekend getaway.

A pair of stylish flats to simply slip on and go

To complete the look, every mom needs a pair of comfy yet stylish flats they can just slip on and continue with their day. While cozy sneakers are a shoe closet staple that’s always good to have, you also want to have something that can take a casual outfit up a notch and make you look more elegant. A great alternative to sandals and heels, flats can also be worn to work or even a date night, and keep you looking stylish, sans blisters and hurting feet.

Putting some time and effort into looking good is important even if you just had a baby. Make use of this checklist next time you go shopping to ensure you’ve got everything you need to be a chic, confident, stylish mama!
