Whether you are a new mother or one with a lot of kids, it is not uncommon to have the underlying feeling that you are not stylish anymore. Motherhood will change you, but that isn’t a bad thing. Just because your everyday life may change, doesn’t mean you can’t be stylish anymore. Here are tips for mother to feel fashionable.
Your hair can make or break the way you look. While some mothers look for the “mom-cut,” the truth is that you should get your hair done the way you want and see what styles look right on you. Your way of living may have an effect on the way you get it done, but don’t sacrifice a loved style because of your job as a mom. Consider cuts that are versatile and work with everyday life but can also be transformed into a masterpiece when needed.
You may have had hours to do your makeup before you had kids, but chances are you can’t seem to find the time to do it now like you used to. Between keeping an eye on your kids and getting them ready whenever you need to go somewhere, there is little to no time left for you to beautify yourself. Developing a simplified, easy makeup routine can help you feel put together without taking hardly any time at all.
Something as simple as a necklace or pair of earrings can add real style to an outfit. While diamonds are a girl’s best friend, there are more things out there that can spruce up your look. Adding a cute bag or maybe a hat to your outfit can take it to another level. This doesn’t mean you have to spend hundreds of dollars on new accessories, you can invest in a few staple pieces that could dress-up any plain outfit.
When it comes to adding clothes to your wardrobe, try to buy ones that are flattering on you. Different body shapes look better in different styles. Find out which ones look best and go from there. You also should never underestimate the power of a good pair of jeans. They can help give you a more finished look, all while offering comfort and a quick fix. Sweatpants and exercise wear are also something to keep in your closet. It’s becoming a popular trend to wear those comfy clothes while out and about.
While you may be prone to wearing the same pair of sneakers or well-worn flats with every outfit, don’t be afraid to spruce things up a little. Wearing some type of animal print shoe can add life and flavor to an otherwise dull outfit. Take things up a notch and put on some wedges even if you’re only going to the grocery store. Your shoes can really affect how your style is going.
There is no shame or waste in getting your nails done. It can often bolster your confidence both as a mom and an everyday person walking by. Not to mention that a day away to pamper yourself is a worthwhile treat. It not only gives you a break away from home, but it can also help boost your self-confidence. If you can’t afford or don’t have time to get them done professionally, go ahead and do your nails yourself. It will still help how you look.
The most important thing to do to be stylish as a mother is to be yourself. Wear what you want and be okay with it.

Do what makes you feel comfortable and confident, cause once you feel those sensations, you’ll know you are stylish.
Although these are some helpful styling tips, don’t be afraid to hide the fact that you are a mother. That is a name you should be proud and honored to have.
