Being a mom and being fashionable often seem like two contradictory ideas. Between changing diapers and heating bottles, it’s tough to feel sexy, trendy and fun. But having staple accessories like these at your disposal can easily spruce up any drab outfit.
Large statement bag
It might be a diaper bag, but that doesn’t mean you can’t carry around your mommy accessories in it. This distressed satchel (ArdenB.com, $60) can carry it all. Keep the rest of your outfit simple with a long cotton maxi dress (DorothyPerkins.com, $44) and faux leather wedges (Piperlime.com, $70). Top it all off with some fun accessories like this gold coil bracelet (WallisFashion.com, $9), these gold leaf earrings (AmritaSingh.com, $50) and a leather sash (Eloquii.com, $21).
When you’re running out of the house, perhaps without your daily eyeliner and mascara, a fab pair of stunner shades like these aviators (Shopzerouv.com, $10) are just the thing. Toss on a standard tank (Dynamite.ca, $11), casual jeans (Buckle.com, $36), gold chandelier earrings (LorisShoes.com, $13) and gorgeous faux leather combat boots (GoJane.com, $31).
Diapers in disguise
Yes, it’s a diaper bag, but nobody has to know. This adorable diaper tote (DueMaternity.com, $125) pairs perfectly with any casual outfit. Keep it sweet and simple with this cotton collared dress (Mango.com, $50), these cork wedges (WallisFashion.com, $61) and these peach chandelier earrings (FantasyJewelryBox.com, $27).
The bold necklace
You might be feeling drab in your crops and plain white blouse, but there’s no reason you can’t spice it up the easy way. This statement necklace (MaxAndChloe.com, $36) pairs great with a breezy white top (WallisFashion, $46) and cute, figure-flattering crops (MarissaCollections.com, $50). Toss in a great shoulder bag (WallisFashion.com, $58) and distinctive mint sandals (Lulus.com, $32) to pull it all together.
Comfy, broken-in boots
When in doubt, boot up! These laced-up combat boots (ShopRuche.com, $47) pair perfectly with almost any casual outfit. You can even dress them up — literally! This solid black dress (DorothyPerkins.com, $28) looks adorable with polka-dot tights (Gap.com, $13) and a sweet, feminine necklace (AldoShoes.com, $25). Cinch that waist with a braided belt (JackWillis.com, $40), and you’re ready to take on the day in comfort and style.
