Here’s how to get ready for the new school year in style!
Dropping The Kids Off
Behold, your new drop-off uniform! Instead of reaching for yoga pants (we get it, they’re so comfy) sub in dark skinny jeans (leggings are ok, too!) and a striped twofer sweater. Stylist secret? A twofer gives the appearance of layering—like stripes over chambray—without the fuss. Make sure your everyday tote has tons of pockets for easy organization. Then, polish it off with colorful flats—they brighten any look!
Heading to Work in 20
From board meetings to the PTA, if you’re juggling work & home responsibilities, keep your look easy. Start with solid pieces that get a ton of mileage, then pair them with statement accessories that add that extra something special. Try a work tote that has laser-cutouts—this on-trend yet subtle detail keeps it work appropriate without being distracting!
Polish Up for Parent-Teacher Conference
Make dresses your style secret weapon. Why, you say? They’re an easy one-and-done outfit that can be thrown on in 5 minutes. A breezy fit & flare silhouette is oh-so flattering on any figure & can be layered with a cardigan in fall’s new hues (like mustard!) for extra coverage. Not only that, but your look can be dressed up on the fly by swapping your simple slides with sky-high shoes.
After School Pickup
Staying on top of the new “it” pieces for the season shouldn’t be a chore. Try updated denim treatments—like colored & coated—that are still comfy & effortless. This sleek, modern cousin of your everyday blue jeans pushes your jeans into the realm of the cool mom. Add a slouchy, tissue-thin tee, leopard-print flats (remember, they are the new neutral) and a statement tote for a look that’s nonchalant & perfectly stylish.
Stylist Tip: For the busy mom on-the-go, grab a pair of jeans that flatter your figure & won’t make you feel like you’re constantly adjusting.
Meet & Mingle at PTA
If there’s one staple layer every mom (and woman, for that matter) needs in her closet, it’s a denim jacket. You can wear this bad boy with literally everything, and it’s durable enough to stand up to anything life (or kiddies) might throw your way. Wear it over a printed shift dress with neutral flats for a look that has dimension with only two simple pieces.
Stylist Tip: Find your new favorite carryall! Look for one in a structured shape—it will help keep your things organized & easier to find when you’re in a hurry.
