Getting dressed for work can be a stressful task for any woman, but it can be especially difficult for busy moms. Between chasing after kids, running errands, and working full time, you need to make your morning routine as efficient as possible.
It’s hard to find the time — or energy — to get dressed in the morning. That’s why I’ve put together this list of tips and easy office outfits for busy moms. These outfits are not only stylish and professional-looking, but they also require minimal effort on your part. They’re all easy to assemble, so you can spend less time getting ready and more time doing what you need to do! I fully believe the way you look when you walk out the door will set your mood for the rest of the day. When I am happy with my attire, I feel good all over and it permeates throughout the day.
Try these four working mom fashion tips to make getting dressed for work easier in the morning.
1. Choose your outfit the night before.
If you have to get up early in the morning, plan your outfit the night before so you don’t waste time searching for something to wear in the morning.
2. Stock your closet with essentials that go together.
The fewer items of clothing you have in your closet, the easier it will be to get ready in the morning — even if it means wearing a black dress every day!
3. Invest in good quality basics.
Buy classic pieces that you’ll wear over and over again instead of trendy items that will only get worn once or twice before they’re out of style or go out of fashion. This is especially important when shopping online because it’s hard to tell how well-made an item really is just by looking at photos online — and many cheap items aren’t worth buying when they fall apart after just one washing!
4. Keep your closet well-organized (and clean!).
Clothes that are hanging up look nicer than clothes on the floor. Your closet should also be easy to navigate. Don’t let it get cluttered with random items that you don’t use regularly. I color coordinate my closet which allows me to find exactly what I am looking for easier. Let go of things you haven’t worn in a while and donate them if they are still in good condition.
With these working mom fashion tips, here are some of my favorite quick office outfits for busy moms to make getting dressed for work easier:
White Blouse + Pencil Pants
The classic white blouse and pencil pants are a great go-to outfit for busy moms. This outfit is easy to dress up or down depending on the occasion. Throw on a pair of comfortable heels and you’re ready to go!
Midi Skirt + Blouse
A midi skirt paired with a blouse and vest is something simple but looks incredibly put together.
A dress can also be a great option because it’s one item to pull from your closet. You can look put together in no time flat! Add a blazer for a more professional look.
