Mums, working or staying at home, are nothing but superwomen.
Mums go through a range of activities in a day and have mastered the art of mutli-tasking. From home chores to business meetings, from kiddie parties to date nights – there are a lot of “hats” to wear, and oh, lots of clothes too!
That is why many busy mums would often choose functionality and comfort over being fashionable in their choice of clothing. Just watch this short but funny video clip of a mum’s 24-hour fashion. Is the fashion police watching? Hope not! :)
Watching this clip validates every mum’s everyday struggle to look good without losing her sanity. We can always take cue on stylish celebrity mums on how they manage to stay in style while pushing the pram. How they do it? Read on.
1. THE BEST MAKE-UP IS YOUR SKIN
“I tend to not wear make-up on my off days. I am not complicated, I don’t have tons of creams or anything like that. I stay simple,” Heidi Klum told HollywoodLife.com. Here is a supermodel ditching make-up for an all natural beauty. No makeup, no problem.
2. GET STYLISH YET EASY TO MANAGE HAIRCUT
Try a mum haircut (others call it post-partum haircut) and have a low maintenance hairstyle that will save you a lot of time in the shower and away from costly treatments. Celebrities like Beyonce, Kim Kardashan and Katie Holmes cut their hair shortly after giving birth.
3. OVER-SIZED SUNGLASSES ARE YOUR BEST ACCESSORY
Sunnies are the fastest way to hide tired and sleep-deprived eyes. Choose shades that complement your skin tone and hair color. Celebrity mums with multiple kids like Angelina Jolie, Reese Witherspoon and Victoria Beckham often wear just these larger-than-life sunglasses, no bling-blings whatsoever, then strut them like ravishing divas.
4. INVEST ON A CHIC MUMMY BAG
Diaper bags or mum bags should not mean boring and fogly purse. Wear a large hobo or a satchel bag that is big enough to carry your mummy essentials and still got space for your baby needs. A fashionable bag with zipped sections inside and lots of outside compartments would help keep up with an organised mum.
5. LET YOUR CLOTHES BREATH
You want your outfit to be comfy but not loose and sloppy so choose the fabric and the fitting very well. Even if you have not shed off the baby weight just yet, do not lose your sense of style. Also remember to dress your age and dress your size.
6. ROCK YOUR DENIM JEANS
A pair of good-looking jeans is an off-duty staple for Hollywood stars and supermodels and you should have one too. It need not be a designer item but get something that flatter your body and easily matches up with the basic tee. It may be the vintage high-rise, flattering skinny, one straight cut or the trendy boyfriend jeans, for as long as it gives you confidence, then you are probably wearing the right one.
7. QUICK! PICK A COLOR
On busy days, you cannot afford the complexities of mix matching your clothes. Go monochromatic and you’re good to go. There is really no way in child-proofing your outfit, so pick one dark shade of color, or be bold and ready for anything in an all white ensemble.
Mums just need a bit of inspiration and loads of imagination. We are supermums and we can do it just like Hollywood goddesses.
