Mums have special needs when it comes to staying stylish in the summer. As a mum your outfit and accessories have to be functional especially when you’re out and about taking care of the kids. Considering the heatwave, picking the right outfits that are ideal for motherly duties can be tricky. Fortunately, there are a lot of versatile pieces that fit those criteria and are weather friendly. If you’re a mum, then these 10 summer holiday fashion essentials are just for you.
Linen is perfect for the heatwave so make linen your material for the summer. Pieces made from linen help to keep you cool despite the heat. Go for a pair of linen trousers and pair them with a simple blouse or t-shirt and remain cool throughout the day.
Who says mums can’t wear shorts? Although the most popular shorts are either ripped or designed, it’s better to go for nice plain coloured fitting shorts. They are comfy and they go well with a fun slogan tee and a pair of sandals.
Maxi dresses are a must-have this summer. There’s nothing as flattering as a lightweight and flowy maxi dress. It’s not only stylish and very feminine, it’s also perfect when you’re taking care of the kids. Opt for polka dots, floral print or striped maxi dresses to add some fun and colour. Style the maxi dress with a classic wide-brimmed hat on those very sunny days and simple accessories to add some glam to the ensemble.
Stock your closet with t-shirts that work with almost every bottom whether a pair of jeans, shorts or a flowy skirt. T-shirts usually require little or no thought. As a mum t-shirts make it really easy to put an outfit together especially when you’re busy looking after the kids.
Sandals with straps
This summer you want to stay as comfortable as possible under the oppressive heat. Sandals will give you that extra comfort and also keep you cool and free. Sandals can come in different styles, but the most ideal pair for busy moms are the sandals with straps. That will make sure your sandals stay on all day.
Bold and fun earrings are wonderful for the summer. Go for earrings with bright colours and large beads or stones. A rule of thumb when choosing your earrings is to select a pair that complements the colours of your outfit. So use your outfit to inspire your choice of earring.
- Lighter washed jeans
Jeans are a staple for every season. They go with almost any top, whether it’s a t-shirt or a blouse. However, make sure you go for lighter washed jeans. They are ideal for the hot weather. Avoid dark coloured jeans this summer as they attract more heat.
Who says you should only wear one necklace on your outfits? Layering a short necklace over a longer one helps to give balance to your outfit. It looks elegant and keeps the vibe happy and fun. Perfect for the summer!
Although there are a lot of handbags, nothing adds to the summer vibe like the shopper tote bag. As a mum you have to have a bag that is able to fit toys for the kids, sunscreen and maybe some snacks for the kids. A shopper tote bag is able to keep all those things and more, plus it’s fashionable. Just the perfect bag for every mum.
Tortoiseshell sunglasses are a classic and work well for mums. They not only shield your eyes from the rays of the sun, they are quite fashionable too. Irrespective of the shape of your face, tortoiseshell sunglasses suit every face. That makes them easy to just pick on your way out.
