  • Eight Wardrobe Staples For Every Mom

    FacebookTwitterPinterest

    The following is a post from Leona Jones. Consideration was received for the editing and publishing of this post.

    Whether you’re a stay-at-home mom, a work-from-home mom, or you work in an office, it’s important to have a few basic pieces of clothing that are appropriate for everyday life. From heading to the park with the kids to going to a wedding on the weekend, you should be able to feel comfortable and confident in your clothing choices.

    Jeans That Fit Well

    If you’re tired of wearing ill-fitting and baggy jeans (commonly known as “mom jeans”), it’s time to upgrade to a different pair. A pair of well-fitting jeans that you feel comfortable in is vital to have for a large number of occasions, from a casual day at work to running errands with the kids. Whether you choose dark wash, light wash, or a fun color like pastel pink, a good pair of jeans should be in every mom’s closet.

    Embellished Tank Top

    As the hot summer months quickly approach, you’re probably already feeling a little on the warm side when you’re outside with the kids. To feel cute and feminine while staying cool, pick up a few embellished tank tops that you can pair with jeans, capris, or shorts. An embellished tank top adorned with jewels or intricate embroidery is a fun way to dress up any outfit while still staying casual.

    Black Dress

    For occasions when you need to look polished and professional, you can’t go wrong with the classic black dress. If you’d like to browse a large selection of black dresses in a variety of cuts, lengths, and materials, check out tobi.com. This company has a black dress to suit any woman’s style at a reasonable price. Once you’ve settled on the perfect dress (or two), you can accessorize with neutral-toned pumps or kick it up a notch with a pop of color.

    Soft Cardigan

    If you work in an office every day, you might find that it’s a little cooler than you’d like, especially during the summer months when you’re rocking a cute tank top. To avoid breaking out the overly heavy winter clothes, invest in a cotton or cashmere cardigan. Cardigans are ideal to have in your closet for all seasons, and they’re versatile enough to wear on a variety of occasions. From neutrals like dove gray and navy to something more playful like hot pink and sky blue, it’s always handy to have a few cardigans in your wardrobe.

    Classic Oxford Shirt

    As a mom, you might feel like your closet is lacking in comfortable yet professional clothes that you can wear every day. If you’re tired of wearing yoga pants and tees to run errands and meet up with friends, consider purchasing at least one classic Oxford shirt. Whether you choose timeless white or soft blue, Oxford shirts look great tucked into a pair of jeans, white capris, or a pencil skirt for a polished look that feels effortless.

    Neutral Pumps

    When need to find a pair of shoes for a date or a formal event like a wedding, it can be difficult to find the ideal pair to go with your outfit. When you’re pressed for time and you don’t have more than just a couple of minutes to select a pair of shoes from your closet, make sure that you’re ready with a pair of neutral-colored pumps. Pumps in cream, beige, and black are the perfect choice to have in your closet, as they’ll go with virtually every outfit. From professional events to fun nights out on the town, your neutral pumps have you covered for any occasion.

    Pencil Skirt

    For the days when you need to look polished and pressed for a work conference or a meeting at your children’s school, it can be tough to find the right outfit for the occasion. When you want to look polished but not too formal, a pencil skirt is always helpful to have. A dark colored pencil skirt like charcoal or black looks excellent when paired with an oxford shirt and neutral heels, and you can soften the look with colorful jewelry.

    Leather Handbag

    Living life as a mom can get messy and hectic. When you need a cute bag that will last for years while still looking great, always opt for leather. This material is long lasting and never goes out of style, so you can enjoy a classic leather handbag for years to come.
