Buh-Bye, Boring Mom Uniform! Easy Ways to Elevate Your Every Day Outfits
If the phrase mom uniform elicits images of head-to-toe yoga attire or basic jeans and T-shirts combinations, then you’ve already got the picture. The mom uniform is an easy, go-to outfit that doesn’t require much time or effort. It’s comfortable and easy, and there’s nothing wrong with that.
However, it’s not the only option out there for busy moms on-the-go. And to prove that point, our expert stylist Blaine (who happens to be a busy mom herself) breaks down how to instantly elevate these two mom-friendly looks.
To elevate your casual-wear, start by grabbing a pair of playful printed leggings in lieu of your basic black yoga pants. Add a long tunic for coverage, but take it to the next level with a lightweight layer like a knit or puffer vest. This “outfit finisher” instantly makes your outfit look more put together. Throw your hair up in a bun and add a touch of glam with a pair of earrings and a long lariat necklace. This is an effortless, comfortable look you can wear to lunch or your kids’ sporting events.
If you work outside the home and are looking for ways to easily elevate your workwear, start with a couple of basic, versatile pieces. A classic striped t-shirt or sweater is always chic and stylish, and is usually a piece every woman has hanging in her closet. Try front-tucking the top into a pair of sleek trousers in a bold color, and then layer on a structured jacket to polish it off. A versatile moto-style jacket is a trendy option if your workplace doesn’t require blazers. It’s still professional, but easily transitions to dinner or family events in the evenings.
