Dear Fellow Moms, Don’t Be Afraid to Try these Latest Fashion Trends
Like every other mom, I use to spend much of my time browsing Pinterest to look at fashion trends I would never really try. Because like every other mom, I was beholden to the “too old for that” and “a mom shouldn’t be wearing this’ way of thinking.
But some introspection coupled with the stuff I read online made me rethink this whole narrative.
Don’t get me wrong. You won’t see me walking around in a piece from Fendi anytime soon. But my wardrobe has a lot more ‘swag’ now (as kids call it).
So how did I go about this change? Well, I started out by trying the styles from Pinterest and then looked for some more online. And before anything else, I had to convince myself that all this was worth the effort.
Moms Need to Embrace the New Trends and Here’s Why
As the adage goes, being a mom is a thankless job. When you prioritize your child’s needs over your own, there are a lot of things you miss out on. Think about it; Easter is approaching soon and a lot of shopping will happen in this season. Last year’s Easter spending statistics show that $3.27 billion worth of clothes is sold on the occasion.
How many mommies buy apparel for themselves? Not many. It’s mostly frocks and bonnets for little girls that find a place in shopping carts.
But since we all deserve a break and a chance to express our sense of style –it’s time for mommas to upgrade their wardrobe and embrace the latest fashion trends.
1. Leather Leggings
I know. I know. What am I thinking, right? Moms wearing leather legging? Next thing you know, I will be making a case for hot pants. But hear me out on this; I am not introducing a novel concept.
Here’s the famous model Miranda Kerr taking a stroll with her son while wearing leather legging. And she’s looking like a million bucks.
Of course, not all of us are Victoria Secret Angels but that’s beside the points. Moms can totally rock the leather leggings. Throw in a leather jacket and it would like you’re a member of a secret service protecting a prodigy from an evil organization. And why wouldn’t wanna give off this vibe?
2. Dark Babydoll Dresses
Like some of the other trends mentioned here, a mom wearing a babydoll dress isn’t a revolutionary concept. But this item is back in fashion and we should get in on the action. Now, I am not suggesting you wear it short like its two days past your 19th birthday –just keep it simple. For moms, a hemline that just a few inches above knee will do the trick. Try to avoid lace trim too if you don’t want everyone to think you like a sleepwalker.
Keep the accessories to a bare minimum and go for a darker shade. This is a pretty simple look –something that will suit a mom and it’s trending as well. In other words; a win-win scenario.
3. Denim Boiler Suits
You don’t see many moms walking around in boilers suits. Hell, you don’t see many people walking around in boiler suits. But that’s all changing extremely fast.
Boiler suits gained traction in the late 2019 and have only garnered more attention since. People have taken a liking to them because they offer comfort, versatility, and an overall cool look. In other words, they offer something that every mom is look in her choice of clothes. They work across seasons and provide an exquisite look. What’s more to ask for?
4. All Kinds of Vests
Vests don’t get the love they deserve. What do they offer to moms? The same they do everyone else. They keep your look fresh and add a bit of funk into the mix. It doesn’t matter what you’re going with, putting a vest on top and it will add a completely new dimension.
Some women may be intimidated to wear this layering piece. Get the proportions wrong and they will make you look bigger than you are. But if you’re able to find your style, be it longline, classic denim or fur –there is nothing quite like a good vest. I mean if Kate Middleton (the ultimate mommy fashion inspo) is rocking it, doesn’t it make vest a prerequisite of being a cool mom?
5. Skinny Jeans With Styled Sneakers
It’s never a bad idea to go for a sporty look to mix things up a bit. Pairing up some styled sneakers with skinny jeans is extremely practical for your everyday mom. You are always on your feet, maybe even running around so it helps to have something comfy on your feet.
As for skinny jeans –it’s not every mom but those who can pull it off, have no better alternative. These days high waist skinny jeans are in the trend and if you can hop on this bandwagon, it’s worth the ride.
