STYLE TIPS FOR TIME-STARVED MUMS

style tips mums

When you become a mum, you may need to make a lot of changes and sacrifices. However, your style is something that should be saved. Here are some tips on how to stay looking great, even when time is scarce.

Low Maintenance Hairstyles

Hair can be very high maintenance and often it is a struggle to decide which hairstyle can go with what you’re wearing. If your problem is too much frizz and not knowing what to do with your hair, find some products that work well for you and slip your hair into a messy bun. This look is very popular and when done well, looks stunning. Sometimes less is more, so don’t be afraid to be simple yet bold. If you are feeling like your hair isn’t holding up as well as usual, why not invest in some nice hair accessories to style it out more? A vibrant scrunchy or nice patterned headscarf can make a basic look more fashionable and it doesn’t require much effort at all.

Comfortable But Stylish

It is understandable as a mum to be pressed for time and not have the same freedom to dress up the way you used to. You have just had a promotion to full-time mum, and you have other responsibilities now. Unfortunately, this means you won’t have time to spend hours on end in town shopping for clothes anymore. Luckily there are ways to look good with little effort, but still feel current.

For example, you could decide to rock an old oversized t-shirt with a pair of boots, a belt, and chunky accessories to stand out or introduce pops of colour. This look will save you a lot of time, and what’s even better is that it’s hard for it to go wrong. The oversized trend is very current and, especially when you are at a point where clothes may not fit the same, this is a look definitely worth considering. For more info, check out this guide to dressing the oversized trend and start gathering ideas of what outfits you can create with clothes you already own.

Get the Right Shoes 

It isn’t realistic to suggest the highest heeled shoes, as being a mum is very active and you will be on your feet for most of the day. You need to find shoes that can look fashionable but laid back at the same time to suit your daily activities. Have a look at some ankle boots by Head Over Heels at www.headoverheels.co.uk/womens-boots/ankle-boots/. The great thing about these boots is that they are available in a variety of neutral shades, which means they are sure to go with anything and can be styled out well with a number of outfits of your choice. These would equally look great with a nice floral dress as well as a nice pair of comfy leggings.

It’s All in the Bag

Up until now, you may have been rocking the clutch purse and small, cute handbag look, but now you have to remember to pack everything your baby needs, which changes things slightly. Get a bag big enough for you and your children to save time switching from bag to bag. Take a look at some fashionable changing bags and find one that captures you for who you really are whilst staying stylish. Now you can look great and trendy while you tend to your busy duties as a mum throughout the day.

These tips and tricks are sure to get you on your way to feeling stylish again after becoming a mother. No longer will you look and feel run down, as you can now transform yourself for the better and, most importantly, boost your confidence level.
