Being a mom is already a hand-full job, but when you need to manage a household and maybe even work full-time, being “busy” is quite an understatement. Nevertheless, constantly being knee-deep in errands and duties, probably leaves you little to no time for taking care of yourself. That cannot ever happen if you want to look glamorous, and we all know that you do. After all, being a badass mom is what we all strive for our children to look up to and see as a role model. So, check out some of the quick tips that will allow you to look your best and feel amazing while conquering all aspects of your busy moms life.
A black blazer is a key
When you need to add a bit of posh to your everyday busy moms life, throwing over a black blazer is the way to do it. If you go for a black-on-black ensemble a la Victoria Beckham, you’ll look fierce and be ready for your bustling day. Think about matching a black bodysuit with black cigarette pants and a black blazer. A pair of black pumps will be perfect to complete the entire outfit, but you can always go for patent nude too and break the pattern. Add a stylish bag over your wrist and a pair of sunglasses to look fabulous. Instead of black pants, you can always go for light washed denim, but always match the blazer and the jeans with a pair of high heels for that extra glam.
Wear only clothes that fit well
The key to looking glamorous is to let everyone know that you feel amazing in your clothes and that you look fabulous while wearing it. That’s why you should get rid of your pre-maternity clothes because chances are, you’re a different size now and you shouldn’t be ashamed of it. Your body created a whole new life and if you need a dress in a larger size, you should buy it instead of looking like a ham in a tube sock wearing a size too small. Not only will you feel uncomfortable, but if the clothes don’t fit you, it will make you look anything but glamorous.
Accessorize with sparkle
The best way to upgrade an outfit is to add trendy accessories. Just think the aforementioned outfit with a blazer and a pair of jeans without any jewellery. Pretty basic right? Well, to add more glam to it, you can accessorize with chandelier earrings which will add just enough sparkle without making you look too flashy. A silver bracelet and a classy watch can complement the earrings, making you look gorgeous. The key to accessorizing is in moderation. So, try not to over-accessorize, and when you go for a pair of chandelier earrings, don’t go for too flashy a necklace, but rather tone it down by wearing only a watch and a pair of shades.
Pick up a few DIY hairstyling tips
You can dress in expensive labels all you want, but unless your hair looks fabulous, your entire outfit will go unnoticed. That’s why you should always keep your hair clean and nicely styled. Dry shampoo is a lifesaver for busy moms in moments of need when you barely have time to eat, let alone wash your hair. Spray a little on your scalp and run fingers through your hair to let it settle. It’ll give you extra volume and extra time between washes. A sleek ponytail or loose curls are always a nice way to upscale your look and give that modern twist to your everyday hairstyle.
Final thoughts for busy moms
Looking good doesn’t have to require hours of your time. You just need to know what pieces to match and to never be afraid to accessorize and experiment with your hair. Search for looks that intrigue you and you’ll become the best-styled mom ever.
