As a modern mom, you will no doubt be busy with work, looking after your family and trying to fit in some time for yourself. Juggling several responsibilities can be challenging but one thing you must do is keep looking fabulous. After all, moms deserve to look good too and you don’t have to give up on fashion because you are too busy trying to get your teenage offspring to clean their room! One great way to do this is changing your look every now and then.
By adding some new touches to how you dress and trying out a few new things, you will be surprised at what a positive effect it can have. It is all too easy to dress the same way for years on end, but this will eventually leave you bored and looking increasingly old fashioned. Making the effort to try out a fabulous new look will help you appear modern and up to date.
One word of warning though – this does not mean you slavishly copy the latest trends or what is on the cover of Vogue! Getting a new look is about finding things that you like and look good on you as a modern mom.
But what are the best style tips to think about when going for a new look?
Use different colors
Probably the number one tip for changing your usual look is to buy clothes in different colors. All people will naturally have colors they like and are drawn too. The problem here is that you can then end up with everything in black, blue or whatever you like best. This can see you end up in a real fashion rut over time. To help break this and look like a true modern mom, try to buy clothes in colors you would not usually consider.
Pay attention to your hair
Many busy moms are guilty of not paying enough attention to their hair. Whether it is always sticking to the same style that went out in the 1980’s or not setting aside enough time to look after your locks, this is quite common. Your hair is one of the first things people see about you and will have a major impact on how people view you. A key style tip for any new look is to really think about changing your usual style and committing to caring for it regularly. From nourishing masks to protecting it from heat damage, it is worth making this effort.

Add some funky accessories
Very often, getting a new look can often be about adding small extra touches to your current wardrobe. Naturally, as a mom this can’t be too outrageous or that next parent evening could be interesting! However, adding accessories like beautiful earrings, cool scarves or stunning necklaces are elegant ways to redefine who you are. The great thing about this tip is that there is so much choice – you will easily find some accessories in designs and materials you love to update your look.
Why not try heels?
Don’t worry – we are not saying you have to start strutting around in 8-inch stilettos if you usually wear flats! Heels can be a great style tip though as they help to lengthen your leg and give you a better natural posture. If you do not wear heels at the moment, consider buying some shoes that have them. It may only be a small one, such as 2 or 3 inches, but it will still update your look in a modern, subtle way.
Go fitted with clothes
There is no getting away from it – many moms have areas of their body they feel a little self-conscious about. The natural tendency is to cover them up with large, loose fitted clothes that hopefully mean people never notice them. This is actually a really bad idea and will make you look dowdier and less elegant. To achieve a sophisticated new look, go for clothes that fit properly to show off your body at its best. While it is key to not go too tight and to pick clothes that accentuate your best bits, going fitted is certainly worthwhile.
Get a great new modern mom look
Hopefully, the above ideas have given you the inspiration to find a fabulous new look. All modern moms deserve to look amazing and you should definitely make the time to pamper yourself. Whether you make small changes to refresh how you dress or larger changes to really make an impact, you will not regret it.
