Being a parent is difficult, time-consuming, stressful, and for parents, it’s often the best part of their lives. This doesn’t mean, however, that they are automatically living their best lives. When your child’s wellbeing is at stake, your own wellness often takes a back seat. This can mean you stop doing the things you love, fall out of touch with your friends, and in many cases can mean you forget about fashion and just start to wear whatever is comfiest and gets you through the day.
If this outfit doesn’t also make you feel incredible about yourself, it’s time for a style update:

Go Through and Audit Your Closet
The first step to any style revamp is to audit. Specifically, you need to go through your entire wardrobe and pick out what you want to go. To help you do this there are a variety of de-cluttering methods, and closet audits you can choose from, but the general pattern of stay, maybe, donate can work just fine. Put your maybe clothes into a box under your bed, and if you find yourself wanting to wear that piece while you shop for wardrobe updates, you should keep it. Otherwise, after the end of the trial period, donate what is left.
Start Investing in High-Quality Basics
Basics are essential because they work with everyone’s style and are timeless. You can wear a black blazer and still look great now as you would be able to ten years from now. You know this because women have been wearing blazers for over a hundred years. As you will theoretically be wearing these basics often, you should invest in high quality. Luxury fabric and master craftsmanship will go a long way towards keeping your clothes looking their best throughout all of the wear and tear.
Know Which Fabrics are Best
The next step is to learn a few basics about fabrics, namely, which fabrics are good for which weather conditions. Cotton, for example, is a very breathable fabric that is great for summer. In winter, on the other hand, it can actually absorb moisture and end up making you freeze more than keep you warm.
Get Fitted Items Tailored
If something needs a little adjusting in order to be perfect, go to your local tailor. It is worth investing for your pieces to be fitted to you because nothing will look better than something that has been shaped to your body.
Choose a Timeless Coat
Though you might want to buy a few coats for varying weather conditions, one factor stays the same: they should be timeless. They should also be built for the weather. A raincoat should be waterproof. A winter coat should be insulated, and so on. Always read the care label before you buy a coat, to ensure the fabric is well suited to your needs. You could also look online for more luxurious options you wouldn’t be able to find in a mall, such as this collection of women's duffle coats from Gloverall.
When it comes to updating your style and becoming stylish the most important thing to remember is that it is your creativity that will make an outfit pop. By focusing on quality items you love over quantity you can look great and reduce time getting ready at the same time, making it an easy choice to be a great mom and look amazing.
