Whether you want to channel classic grace, urban bohemia or rock chic there is a mummy muse to suit you, just take what works for you and make it your own.
Don’t you wish you could wave a magic wand and have a fairy fashion stylist lay out your looks every day?
Or even better, wouldn’t it be wonderful to have the time to languish in front of the wardrobe and create looks you would love to wear?
For new mums it can be hard to transition from work outfits to an off duty style that we feel good about. We stretch ourselves across so many tasks its hard to take the time to know what to wear so the next best thing is to see who is doing it right and figure out how.
Many celebrity mums manage to look so gob-smackingly good they render us mere mortals agape and paralysed. However, on close inspection they all have a simple style formula that they stick to, adding tweaks here and there to amp it up or make it feel new. This means that they don’t get confused by too many clothes with differing influences (sound familiar?) and stick to what they know works. Wardrobe 101 for Mums: Fashion Formulas for Modern Mothers is a crash course in star powered style, selecting the most stylish mummy muses and deconstructing their style formulas so you can take the lead from those in the know.
Kate Middleton: The Duchess of Cambridge – Regal Lady.
The Duchess of Cambridge is a beacon of modern femininity. Her elegant style expertly combines high-end and high-street pieces in a way that feels timelessly sophisticated. She shows us that choosing simple pieces can make a strong statement and emphasises that sometimes the cleverest looks are also the easiest.
Classic Kate loves a smart navy and white ensemble, often seen sporting a Breton striped top with a classic blue blazer and dark denim jeans. With her signature wedges add a casual polish without looking stuffy or overdone. Replace the wedges with flat espadrilles and add a splash of colour in an oversized scarf or top it off with a straw hat to make it sun savvy.
Lesson to Learn – when in doubt, respect the classics.
