Whether you’re running between the office and the kids’ activities or you’re unwinding on your day off, your stylish uniform deserves to be far from basic. The stylists at The Stylish Co. have compiled their most dependable recommendations that work for any outfit, any occasion.
Accessories can make even the most practical mom outfit a fierce fashion statement. Follow these stylist-approved tips to swiftly send your outfit from basic to chic in no time.
Add A Belt
Think of belts as the finishing touch on your outfit. Add a professional accent to the waist of your most casual pair of jeans with a skinny leather belt. Or, use a wide brown belt on darker colored pants as a way to color block your neutrals.
Delicate gold chains layered methodically are classic, timeless, and forever chic. If you’re feeling bold, opt for chunky gold chains or colored necklaces. Whichever variety you choose, the key is making it intentional. Choose at least three different lengths, and opt for high-quality pieces that will not easily tangle. Stay on trend by adding a strand of pearls into the mix.
Like layered necklaces, stacked rings are an easy way to make your outfit go from satisfactory to Instagram-worthy. Choose a couple of statement rings, and leave the rest simple to add balance.
Front Tuck, Half Tuck, Full Tuck
Knowing various shirt-tucking methods is key to mastering proportion in your everyday style. For casual looks, we generally prefer a half tuck for button-ups and a front tuck for all our other tops. Save the full tuck for belted looks, skirts, and more formal occasions.
Even on a tee-and-jeans kind of day, you can make a fashion statement with your bag. A bold bag is an outfit maker. Right now, we’re loving neon green and pink luxury bags, but we also love a variety of other statement-making bags. Beaded bags. Woven bags. And, of course, vintage-inspired everything.
Incorporating just one of these stylist-approved tips into your outfit will instantly elevate your look. Try utilizing more of these recommendations in your outfit to further boost your trendsetter status. If you’re unsure how to integrate these tips into one look and fearful of crossing the line from too basic to too much, consult a personal stylist.
