Sometimes, trying to dress fashionably or buy clothing in the latest trends seems pointless for a busy mom. However, it’s true that dressing well makes us feel better about ourselves. So don’t neglect yourself. Find your mom style using these four easy steps and start looking and feeling great again.
1. Determine Your Shape and Size
Not all moms are created equal when it comes to body shape and size. It’s natural for body shapes to change due to busy lifestyles, work demands, or a myriad of other factors. Don’t be ashamed of your new body shape or having to wear a different size, embrace it. Motherhood is an amazing thing and while we all tend to put more effort into making sure our family looks good, it’s important to take time to look great ourselves. Wearing clothes that fit our changing bodies is the first step in finding a mom style that makes us feel confident.
2. Try New Things
When you look into your closet, you should be excited to wear the outfits that you’ve collected. If this isn’t the case, then it’s time to try something new. Purge your closet of all the things you know realistically will never fit right again, and get new outfits that fit well and are age-appropriate. This doesn’t mean you can’t still be trendy. Find time for yourself to determine your perfect fit and the types of clothing you love to wear. You can slowly add new items to your wardrobe one piece or one outfit at a time.
3. Use a Personal Stylist
A personal stylist can really benefit moms who want to look fashionable, but don’t have much time to shop. All you have to do is complete an online questionnaire online about your size, style preferences, and budget, then sit back and wait for your box to arrive at your doorstep. A personal stylist chooses items based on your answers to the questionnaire. You try them on when they arrive. Keep what you like, and send back the rest. It is a simple, time saving way to allow you to try new things without ever going to the store.
4. Wear What You Love

As a busy mom, you don’t always have a lot of time to choose the perfect outfit. This is why it’s important to keep your wardrobe full of clothes that you enjoy. This makes getting dressed a stress-free process because you feel great in everything in your closet. Comfort often wins out over fashion for us moms, but clothing can be both comfortable and fashionable, if you know what to look for. Make a note for your personal stylist that you prefer things that are comfortable and they will ensure to pick fabrics that are stretchy and breathable.
Making time to determine your mom style can make a big difference in your level of self-confidence. When you leave the house in clothing that fits right, is fashionable, and doesn’t cost a fortune, you will ultimately give yourself a boost and you’ll feel better than ever.
