wardrobe basics for moms and teens

We all love dressing up. Whether it’s for a special occasion or an ordinary work day, we always want to look good by wearing clothes that appeal to our fashion sense. And fashion chooses no age. While teenagers are keener in posting their outfits of the day (OOTDs) on social media, moms can be fashion gurus, too. If you’ve seen local celebrities like Marian Rivera and Sarah Lahbati dress up with their little ones, then you’ve seen how fashion is more fun and adorable when it’s a mom and daughter affair.

Ready to go twinning with mom for Mother’s Day? Check out our list of styling must-haves that both teens and moms can sport.

1. Shirt dress

A shirt dress combines the ease of wearing a dress with the comfort of a tee. This wardrobe choice can be a go-to outfit any day of the week. A perfect transitional piece, you can pair it with sandals, boots, or classic white sneakers depending on the event. This looks good both on moms with wider hips and teens who want a fair, simple look.

Mommas don’t have to worry about hiding their tummy anymore. High-waist jeans are reliable for those who want to conceal their bellies for some time. Called the “mom jeans” of the ‘90s, high-waist jeans are the favorite of petite women who want to look a bit taller. For teens, these jeans can go with a cropped top or tucked-in blouse, while moms call pull off a long tunic, oxford shirts, or an oversized sweater.

Let’s stick with the basics. Sneakers have been a big part of our fashion even before white sneakers became all the rage. Not only do they go best for dressing up, sneakers can also be paired with unexpected combinations like a shirt and blazer, or a dress or skirt. A prominent wardrobe staple, moms just need to pick the right kind of pair without compromising comfort.

Women nowadays are all for practicality and comfort. Moms can enjoy a short stroll with their babies wearing laid-back flats called mules, a type of slip-on footwear that promises blister-free feet. As the classic white sneakers wane in popularity this year, women can opt to snag a pair of chic mules as they hit the streets on hot, lazy days.

Wardrobe shopping tips

Proper clothing can be interpreted as our way of responding to a certain event or the environment. Maybe we ask why models and celebrities look good no matter what they wear. While styling is not that difficult, you can follow some techniques to help you establish their own style and identity. Here are some fool-proof fashion commandments that can help you look your best.

• Comfort must come first before anything else. Feel at ease with what you’re wearing.
• Not all popular styles are for everyone. Make sure to fit clothes, shoes, and ready-to-wear garments before purchasing them.
• Try to reinvent old dresses hiding in your stash.
• If you’re not sure about matching colors, stick with the solid neutrals: black, white, gray, cream beige, and navy.
• Social media can be a source of fashion inspiration. Follow fashion tips from blogger moms to get an idea on what to wear to a particular event.
