Look, it’s no secret that the adjective version of “mom” is often shorthand for dorky, dated, and no fun. Ever heard of mom jeans? Or a mom haircut? Yeah, not exactly a compliment. Well, I think it’s time we South Florida moms take back those phrases and show the world that dressing like a Boca mom can be fun, stylish, and cool. Check out these mom-tastic tips for absolutely rocking your Boca mom fashion and wardrobe. Next time you pull up in that luxury mini-van, folks will definitely turn heads.
1. Invest in some quality denim.
Boca moms are constantly on the go, so they’re constantly having to throw on whatever they can before heading out the door. Often, that means a pair of baggy shapeless jeans (or yoga pants- let’s be real) that are not super flattering. Well, just because you’re in a rush doesn’t mean you have to dress poorly. Instead of frumpy old discount jeans that you have to replace every six months, why not invest in higher quality denim that will last you years? There is no substitute for quality. And paying $120 for jeans once every 5 years will save you more dough than paying $25 every 6 months.
2. Try out a capsule wardrobe.
While you’re looking into a solid pair of go-to jeans, perhaps you should consider a total overhaul and embrace the capsule wardrobe.
What’s a capsule wardrobe?
Well, right now you’ve probably got 100+ articles of clothing stashed away in your closet. There’s a lot of stuff that you wear maybe once every 2 years, if that. And, probably some cheap stuff that you’re still trying to figure out how to wear correctly. A capsule wardrobe is a select set of items that you intentionally purchase for their quality, style, and ability to be worn over and over again.
There are plenty of guides online on how to build a capsule wardrobe. Capsule wardrobes usually include three pairs of pants, around 10 tops, five pairs of shoes, and a couple of dresses for nicer occasions. Investing in a capsule wardrobe is a great way to revamp your style in a way that’s cute, trendy, and eco-friendly!
3. Step up your Boca mom fashion shoe game.
You don’t need to tell this mom twice! Shoes are one of the most important parts of an outfit. It’s just a fact. It’s important for moms to have comfortable footwear for those long days running errands, taking care of the kids, or heading to work.
Luckily, you aren’t stuck wearing just any old running shoe these days. With the rise of fashionable athleisure, there are so many great options for Boca moms on the go. Try out some trendy new athletic sneakers to add a fun color pop to your outfit! If you need a dressier look, there are also amazingly comfortable options for your feet that can be super trendy and stylish. Try out some awesome pointed toe flats for a look that says professional, but fun!
4. Get some trendy jackets.
Still wearing that old sweatshirt from your kid’s dance show four years ago? It’s time to let it go, as Elsa would say. For a much more stylish and modern look, get a stylish bomber jacket or jean jacket to throw on when it’s a little chilly out. It’s just as easy to put on, but takes your outfit to another level. It says “I’m a Boca mom who knows what’s cool.”
5. Love what you wear.
Cool outfits are great, but there’s no better accessory than confidence. If you love what you’re wearing and you rock that Boca mom fashion confidently, everyone will think you look even better! Because at the end of the day, trends change, styles fade, and tastes can vary. The one thing that you have consistent control over is how you feel in your own skin.
Dressing cool as a mom can seem tricky at first, but with a few easy tricks and investing in some solid pieces for your wardrobe, you’ll be well on your way to looking like a totally cool mom.
