When you’re raising kids, sometimes it can feel like you have no time for yourself. You barely have time to actually get dressed, much less put together an outfit that’s cute, fashionable, and on trend. Just because you’re short on time doesn’t mean you can’t look great, though. Here are four ways that moms can be fashionable and trendy, whether you’re short on time or money.

1. Figure out What Works for You

The best way to be stylish is to know what works for you. What flatters your figure? What colors look best on you? What accessories work with your wardrobe, your figure, and your face or hairstyle? What do you like? The latest trends won’t make you look trendy if they don’t flatter you, or if you aren’t comfortable wearing them. Go ahead and check out the latest trends. When you see one you like, if you feel comfortable wearing it and it flatters you, go for it. But keep in mind that you can look just as fashionable in an older style that flatters you.

2. Shop Online and Thrift or Consignment Stores

There are several tricks to shopping for trendy designer clothing on a budget. Start with online shopping. The right websites, with liberal return policies, will make it easy to find what you like while returning anything that doesn’t quite fit the way you expected. They also allow you to read reviews from others, saving you the hassle of buying something that everyone hates. Thrift and consignment shops are also great options. Consignment shops, in particular, tend to be quite selective with what they’ll accept. The items need to be clean and in good condition, and a current style. This ensures that you’ll only find up-to-date styles that are what you’ll be paying for them.

If the idea of wearing clothing someone else wore first bothers you, there’s another alternative: look for knock-offs. Find a designer brand you love, and look for the non-brand version that looks similar. This gives you the gorgeous look without the expense.

3. Accessories Can Upgrade Any Outfit

The right shoes or purse can do wonders for any outfit. Jewelry though, is where you can really play around. You can take any outfit (whether it’s a pair of jeans and a t-shirt or a glamorous dress), and make it look completely different. There are so many pieces of jewelry to play with: earrings, necklaces, bracelets, chokers, rings, and anklets. Styles in Utah boutiques range from chunky bohemian to sleek elegance, and simply swapping one style of jewelry for another can change an entire outfit. The best part about jewelry is that it doesn’t have to be ridiculously expensive. Inexpensive pieces that look great can be just as effective as anything else.

4. Remember that You Are Part of Your Overall Look

The most trendy, fashionable styles in the world won’t make someone look good if they look exhausted, have messy hair and washed out skin. Taking care of yourself is one of the best fashion accessories you can have, and it doesn’t cost you anything extra. Get plenty of sleep, eat healthy foods, take your vitamins, and reduce your stress. Take a few extra minutes in the morning, even if it’s with kids directly underfoot, to do more than toss your hair into a ponytail. Add a little tinted lip balm to your lips, and you’ll both feel and look better.

Staying fashionable and trendy after motherhood isn’t as difficult as you might think. The time you invest in finding a few stylish pieces, adding some nice jewelry, and styling your hair, will make you feel better.
