What’s Your Celebrity Mom Style and How To Dress Like One
Scrolling through Instagram., have you ever wondered how these celebrity moms look so put together while you wrestle your little one into sleeping? You have been making do with 1-minute baths and 2-minute naps while these celeb moms seem to have it all under control AND while looking fabulous! Well, first thing? They have a lot of help—a LOT of it. Secondly, looking good isn't as hard as it is made out to be. With only a few switches and changes to your maternity wardrobe and your dressing style, you can make a massive difference to your appearance.
Even if you have been a sharp dresser all your life, your sartorial understanding may not be cutting it when it comes to maternity and postpartum fashion. This is mainly because of two reasons. One, maternity wear options are so limited in their scope of experimentation and vibrancy that one look at a store's maternity section might send a sartorial genius home crying. Second, it's tough to determine what looks good on a growing bump.
Worry not, do we bring you a few tips and tricks on how to fashion like a celebrity mom. You may be unwittingly doing some of these already. Stay tuned to find out.
Classic Neutrals and Solids
Look at your wardrobe. Which are the most prominent colors? If your closet is chockfull of navy, grey, white, beige, chances are you are a classic dresser. All celebrity stylists rage on about the importance of having luxurious neutrals in the wardrobe aside from a few striking pieces. This is because neutrals pair with EVERYTHING. You can layer them up, dress 'em up or down, wear them to the office or a party. They are basically the building blocks of fashion.
Icon: Look at how Angelina Jolie gracefully pairs a basic white shirt and grey pants to create a stunning look that we are going gaga over. Embracing simplicity as a part of your life does not mean you have to dress boringly. You don't need a full face of makeup to look beautiful.
Bold and Beautiful
Icon: The ever beautiful and brave Beyonce having a fun time with her kid is a perfect example of how to dress boldly without ever going over the top. The world is your oyster when it comes to makeup and fashion. So play, mama.
Cool and Comfortable
Do you always rank comfort and ease over everything else? Is your hair in a constant messy updo? Your signature style might be the relaxed and comfortable girl-next-door. You think having your hair up is cool, and we agree. Having your hair up saves up so much time on combing through or thinking about new hairstyles. Frankly, all mothers know kids love to pull hair and have them by the bunch.
Icon: Jennifer Garner, do we love her, or do we love her? She is the reason why we still believe dressing well doesn't have to be tough. No one can make a plain black tee look so effortlessly chic like her. If you're going straight and simple, remember to accessorize. You have a lot of room to play around with when your outfit is simple. Put on a big watch, throw in a pair of statement earrings to complete your look.
If breezy fabrics, long skirts, and fun prints are your weakness, you are our boho mama. Bohemian is our all-time favorite aesthetic that is perfect for maternity and postpartum. The billowy dresses and skirts flatter the bump well while hiding all other imperfections. Pair your attire with some chunky jewelry, add some flowers to your hair, and you are done.
Icon: Nicole Richie, walking with her baby in this super cool layered outfit, is every bit as adorable as comfortable. The loose-fitting jacket goes so well with that kutch embroidered bag. There's nothing not to love in this outfit.
And there you are! Which of these style icons did you associate with most? Do you now see dressing well isn't so much about buying new or expensive things? It's about finding balance and building a stunning maternity outfit from your existing wardrobe. Mom fashion does not have to be bland. All you need is a little creativity to spruce up your celebrity mom fashion game.
