12 Wardrobe Basics for Busy Mums!

Becoming a mum doesn’t mean you have to adopt a wardrobe of tracksuit pants and t-shirts, abandoning your sense of style.  You may have less time on your hands but rely on our list of wardrobe basics and you’ll go from drab to fab in about 5 minutes flat!
Here is my list you can’t do without!
1. Ballet Flats & Loafers 
Easy to slip on and off, comfy and stylish and they add a touch of sophistication to your look – what more do you need?
2. Black leggings 
They’re practical and versatile.  Add the wow factor and consider a pair with leather panels.

3. White Shirt
It’s easily matched with pretty much everything but make sure it is machine washable! 

4. Oversize sunnies
They’re so forgiving (tired eyes anyone?) and dress up a plainer outfit. 

5. Flat boots
Perfect for winter with leggings or skinny jeans, that white shirt and super shades.  Think knee high or ankle.


6. Trench coat
It’ll add classic style to your look, make sure it’s well fitted and in a versatile neutral shade.
7. Converse

For instant street cred – the more battered the more beautiful.

8. Blazer
Make sure it’s well fitted and flattering.  Black is a reliable classic but a printed or coloured blazer adds that extra something.


9. A statement carry-all
Your favourite oversized Sterling & Hyde bag is a practical way to carry around the necessities of motherhood.
10. Soft leather jacket
A classic style will never go out of fashion and they’re warm, comfy and easily cleaned.
11. Scarves

The perfect accessory to add a pop of colour and pattern to a more neutral outfit.  For new mums they’re indispensable for breastfeeding.

12. Jewellery

Nothing too OTT here. A cute pair of crystal studs, a simple short necklace or even a nice watch will make you feel just that little bit special, and what Mum doesn’t want that?

Some great advice there from Amy! Make sure you check out Sterling & Hyde your one stop bag shop, you can even design your own! There is everything you need to fulfil the handbag addict in you! For all Sydney wholesale enquiries please contact me via mamastylista@mamastylista.com.
