Moms, Mother’s Day is all about you! It’s a day to spend with loved ones, eating delicious food that you don’t normally have time or a viable excuse to eat (Eggs Benedict, anyone?). It’s a chance to pamper yourself at a spa, a movie, or simply on your own couch. But, when you’re used to focusing on your kids, your home, your job, and your partner (not to mention making sure the reservations for Mother’s Day have actually been made), figuring out your ensemble for the festivities can be easily forgotten. Here are some tips on what to wear on Mother’s Day, tailored to personal style and guaranteed to make you one hot mama!
If you love smart, classic looks, you will feel most confident spending Mother’s Day in a outfit that’s chic and sleek. Tailored shorts are a fresh (and comfortable) alternative to a skirt or pants. Add a structured blazer in a springy color like white for extra sophistication, especially if you’re headed to a more upscale restaurant for brunch. Statement jewelry and an elegant clutch complete your classy look.
Leather moto jacket? Of course. Interesting patterns? Always. Platforms? A necessity, since you can’t focus nearly as well in flats, unless you count combat boots. Edgy mamas like you pride themselves on making bold fashion choices and being unafraid to be “off-trend.” And that’s awesome, because it’s what makes you, you. For Mother’s Day, rock a tough jacket with a sweet dress, and don’t forget one of your crazy handbags.
If you’re a mom who embraces a spirited, laid-back style, you probably love all things fringe, floral, and flowy. On Mother’s Day, show off your inner hippie-chick with a breezy, tribal-print maxiskirt and slouchy tee. Earthy accessories like a wooden watch and chunky wedges will keep you ready for whatever adventures ensue.
Sure, you love coaching your little ones and cheering for your home team, but on Mother’s Day, everybody is cheering for you! Accept your accolades in a look that stays true to your athletic roots with a feminine twist. A jersey or sweatshirt dress keeps you in your comfort zone, while a scarf and earrings push your style past the goal post. Slide-on a pair of dressy-but-not-too-dressy sneakers and your signature denim jacket. Game on!
No matter your fashion curation, what’s most important is that you have a fabulous and fun Mother’s Day—with style of course!
