Getting ready in the morning sometimes feels like mission impossible, especially when you have to get your kids ready as well. The crazy routine is always fun and heart-warming, but it probably rarely leaves you with room for yourself, let alone enough time to plan your outfits and spruce your look up. This is why it’s important to learn some quick yet stylish tips that will make a huge difference in the way you look, feel and perceive your morning routine.
Stock up on the basics
First things first – basics to the rescue! There’s no better tip for busy mums when fashion is concerned and especially getting ready in the morning. When you have some free time, make sure to go through your basics, get more if necessary and visualize the go-to pairings. These can be basic tees and shirts, jeans and slip on pants as well as a nicely fitted blazer and cardigan for layering. It’s important to keep things plain enough so that you can mix and match them easily in a rush.
Stick to the flattering colors
You don’t have to ditch patterns completely, but in order to make things easier for yourself in the morning and make sure that you look cool and stylish at the same time, it would be best to mostly stick to a couple of colors that you know look great on you. When you’re looking for trendy women’s fashion for a mum who’s rather busy, you probably won’t encounter a bunch of wild patterns anyway. Introduce a few white and black items for layering and you should be all set!
It's crucial to accessorize
In the end, it’s not the clothes that make an outfit great and your look outstanding, but the accessories. So, with your wardrobe ready for quick grabs, make sure that you have a proper selection of accessories laid out for you as well. Again, you might want to choose staple jewellery for yourself which will always wait for you on your vanity – a nice watch, ring(s), dainty earrings and a necklace are more than enough. When you buy your shoes, make sure to have some variety but also a multipurpose quality to them. That way, you won’t have too many pairs to overwhelm you but the ones you do own will match perfectly with everything you own as well as different occasions. Do the same with your bags and throw in a staple scarf for good measure.
Come up with an outfit the night before
Once you put your kids to bed, you have a bit of time for yourself before you drift off to dreamland. If possible, use this time to come up with your outfit for tomorrow. That way, you can put more thought into it and maybe do something a bit different, just to spice your look up now that you can afford to take your time.
In order to wear clothes that look positively stunning on you and find your way around your wardrobe in the morning, it’s also important to get rid of all the items that you’ve been hoarding, maybe even before you got pregnant, but can’t actually remember when you last wore them. This will free up the space so that you can actually see what you have and want to wear on a daily basis. What’s more, you’ll get a clear insight into what you own and what other items you need to buy in order to complete your wardrobe and effectively create different looks.
Everything you do for yourself, you can also do for your children. This will speed up the process of getting ready in the morning for all of you, which is always a great thing. And it will also let you enjoy styling your looks a bit more.
