Practical and Stylish Outfit Tips For Mums 

Being a mum is a full-time job and many women can feel like their looks are less of a priority after their children are born. It’s not easy to prioritise your style with all the childcare responsibilities you have to juggle on a daily basis, but just because you’re a mum doesn’t mean you can’t look your best. 

From feeding and washing to doing the school run and zipping to playdates, being a super-mum is leaving many UK mothers exhausted. With a few well-styled outfits and staple accessories, looking sophisticated and fabulous is one thing you can take off your to-do list. 

Comfort Pieces 

There are some wardrobe staples that maximise comfort and ensure you look stylish. Jeans are a timeless addition, especially when they have a bit of stretch for those days when you’re running about at home. When matched with a white t-shirt, you have a classic combination that looks both put-together and casual with a pair of heels or trainers. 

You can’t underestimate the power of a denim jacket or cardigan. These immediately add some chic charm to your outfit, especially if you’re just nipping out to run an errand or two. 


When you’re running around after your little ones, you need shoes that are both comfortable and practical. Chunky trainers or flat boots provide cushioning and support to your feet while simultaneously making a stylish statement. This type of footwear effortlessly elevates every look, from casual attire to evening wear, and they put up a fight against the unpredictable UK weather.

In the summer months, a pair of sandals, wedged or flat, strikes a perfect balance between comfort and style. They pair gorgeously with a loose summer dress or long skirt. 


Clothes that you can throw on with minimal effort and fill you with confidence instantly are must-haves in a mother’s wardrobe. This is where dresses come in. Opt for a style that is both flattering and functional to unlock a variety of outfits with just one item of clothing. Pair with an oversized sweater or pair of leggings to keep you warm on chillier days. 


Keeping staple items that you can wear every day like a luxury watch, pendant necklace or chain bracelet can add a touch of glam to your outfit without looking like you’ve tried. Stacking rings and bracelets is all the rage right now – you could even get your children involved making beaded and charm bracelets to add to your collection. 


The way we dress is an external expression of our inner self and the things that make you unique, and these don’t just go away because you’ve had children. Your clothes allow you to communicate your mood and identity so let your personality shine through with items that suit both your aesthetic and role as a mother.
