I’ll venture to guess that most of you reading are 1) moms, and 2) interested in being more stylish with minimal effort. Both of those things apply to me, too, and today I’m here to give you a little style advice to freshen up your school drop off style while still remaining as comfortable as possible. Here are three looks to try this fall:
The Cozy Chic Look
Not a morning person? This look has your name written all over it! Black leggings should become your best friend, because when paired with the right pieces they work as pants but are basically pajamas. My favorite mix is a tank (or soft v-neck tee) and a long boyfriend cardigan so your bum is 100% covered. Shoes are up to you—I recommend a moccasin, athletic shoes (black Nikes are my favorite with this look) or even tall boots. Super chilly outside? Add a long coat on top and nobody will even realize you’re wearing loungewear in public.
The Casually Cool Look
One life rule I have: never wear pants that hurt. The only pants allowed in my closet have generous amounts of stretch in them, and lately they are all high rise because I’m a total cliche and the second I became a mom I embraced “mom jeans” with all of my heart. My favorite style is a high rise skinny jean (with stretch, because it’s the rule!), and what’s great about this is it is comfortable but also appropriate to wear in almost any situation. For school drop off, try pairing yours with a cozy sweater and your favorite flats. Bonus points if you put on one accessory (scarf, long necklace, a watch), but that’s just extra credit ;)
The Minimal Effort Fancy Look
I love this look because a dress makes you look so put together but really doesn’t require any effort. Especially if the dress you wear is long and stretchy (like a Sonnet James dress), or a loose and soft shift dress—that’s basically a nightgown out in public right there! Both options work. To complete the look for fall, add a jacket or coat and flats, loafers or your most comfortable ankle boots.
