This spring there are some fun trends going around in the fashion world. Of course, there will always be those impractical trends that you ignore because they’re not conducive to mom life. But where on-trend and mom-friendly meet, there’s some fun to be had with our wardrobes!
While you wardrobe should not be made up of entirely trendy clothes, it’s fun to bring your regular classics to life with the addition of a trend or two that you love each season.
Here are some of my favorites you’ll likely be seeing a lot this year:
- Big statement necklaces
- Gladiator sandals
- Trench coats (classic AND trending right now)
- Floral patterns
- Frayed or raw hem jeans
- Graphic tees (with fun messages!)
- Stripes (classic AND trending right now)
- Lace-up (from shoes, to shirts, to dresses!)
Here are three easy mom outfits that incorporate these trends. Almost all pieces are from Old Navy or Target.
Outfit 1: Graphic Mama Tee + Color Capri + Denim Shirt + Gold Thong Sandals
Trends included: Denim, graphic tees, mustard
For this outfit, wear the denim shirt open over the graphic tee. You can also tie the ends of the denim shirt for a laid-back but polished look. I love graphic tees that celebrate motherhood. (The Expecting Mamas Network also carries some cute ones in the shop!) The trends in this look will definitely be sticking around much longer than this year because they border on classic and are so popular.
Outfit 2: Floral Dress + Statement Bib Necklace + Gladiator Sandals
Trends included: Floral pattern, statement necklace, gladiator sandals
This outfit is dressy and yet comfortable for everyday wear. This floral dress is one of many available right now–you are bound to find a pattern you love. The gladiator sandals are also popular right now, and ultra-comfortable. This statement “bib” necklace is so versatile and could help bring any of your mom outfits to life.
Outfit 3: Lace-Up Tee + Frayed Hem Jeans + Trench Coat + Color Sandals
Trends included: Lace-up, raw hem jeans, trench coats, stripes
This outfit incorporates the lace-up trend in both the top and sandals. The trench coat is a classic that is especially popular right now. It’s a very flexible piece that comes in various neutrals. This particular is available in olive too (see shopping links below). I love the pop of red color the shoes offer. It is easily showcased by comfy ankle jeans with frayed hemlines. This outfit is casual yet so classy!
