I have three littles under the age of 11 that keep me plenty busy all day. I understand all too well the challenge of even getting dressed some days, let alone looking stylish! These are my go-to style tricks that I have learned through the years of applesauce and dirty diapers.

   How To Elevate Your Mom Style

Find your daily uniform.

For me this is a great pair of distressed boyfriend jeans and a T-shirt with the perfect cut. Find your go-to pieces that make you feel amazing. Then you will have something to reach for when you don’t have time to think about it because your kid just flushed a toy down the toilet! Which happens all too frequently around here!

Build on to your everyday look with outer layers.

Adding a jacket over your simple everyday pieces will help elevate your look. I’ve done this in the pictures above with this statement shirt dress that I’ve worn as a jacket. I love to repurpose things like dresses or tunics and wearing them open over my favorite denim. One of my favorite date night outfits, as you can see in this previous post, How To Style A Blazer and T-Shirt, is my daily uniform topped with a blazer and great heels. I am a sucker for blazers. They are also another layer I use to help elevate my style. Blazers are a great topper to denim shorts and a T-shirt for a pulled together summer look.

Have a couple of one-and-done pieces.

Sometimes your just not in the mood or have no time for layering on pieces. Be sure to have couple of effortless chic one-and-done pieces in your rotation for those days. A long and loose maxi or denim shirt dress will be a perfect stylish option. Rompers are also a favorite of mine for warm weather.

Use accessories for the finishing touch.

Shoes, hats, scarves, bags and jewelry are going to be the finishing touches you need to elevate your mom style. When you add a colorful scarf to black maxi dress it give you a lighter day look. Adding nude wedges and a basket bag completes your outfit. I like to keep some classic pieces I can reach for again and again. Trends are also fun to play with here though. It could be the print or color of the season, or a must-have shoe trend.


By stocking your wardrobe with pieces you love and fit you well, you will be able to easily choose what to wear on your busy mornings. You will be able to mix and match your daily pieces to keep you stylish and on the go!
