Having kids and becoming a mother doesn’t mean women have to change the way they look. They can still dress up and feel good about themselves. The only difference this time is they need to dress smarter and plan ahead of messy situations with their kids.

To help moms struggling with fashion, here’s a list of this year’s top fashion trends that even the busiest moms can slay.

First, Declutter and Sell Items Online

Moms don’t have to change their entire wardrobe, but it’s likely that most of the pieces there won’t work for the new lifestyle.

Decluttering is a huge part of putting together a wardrobe that is practical and versatile for moms on the go. Anything that is still in good condition can be kept in a box for selling.

To make decluttering even more worthwhile, start selling some items online. It can help moms start over and have the extra money to get more affordable but stylish clothing pieces. After selling some clothes online, it’s time to fill the closet again with pieces based on the latest fashion trend this year.

The 2020 Fashion Trends

Some pieces may be familiar, as many trends from the past are coming back today. But more than the latest craze, this list is made to make dressing up easier for all the busy moms out there.

1. Pleats

Pleats are coming back big-time! It’s easy to find pleated skirts, dresses, and even tops these days. They easily make even the simplest outfits stylish. For example, a simple top, a pleated skirt, and any kind of sandals will already look glamorous. 

It’s easy to put together and match, which is something every busy mom will need.

Pleated clothing pieces are also versatile. Anyone can wear them on any occasion. They can be styled casually with a pair of sneakers or, in more formal events, with killer heels.

2. A Little Black Dress

They say every woman needs a little black dress, and that’s true even for moms. Having kids doesn’t mean giving up on wearing dresses altogether.

The little black dress can be worn by itself on a date night. Pair it with some heels, and it’s already a look. However, it can also be worn casually when going out with the kids. Pair it with some leggings and flats or sandals, and it can be transformed.

Of course, it’s best to choose a dress that can be very versatile and can be matched with other types of clothing.

3. Tunic Blouses

Tunic blouses are perhaps one of the must-have clothing pieces every mom needs. These tops are very comfortableperfect when running errands all day.

They are also versatile as they can be worn with shorts, tucked inside jeans or skirts, or over a pair of leggings. They can even be worn during date nights or a girls’ night out by pairing them with statement necklaces.

Getting a good length also allows anyone to use it as a dress.

4. Vertical Stripes

Stripes, in general, are going to be big this year, according to fashion experts. But it seems like vertical stripes will be favored more as they compliment any body type, especially in photos. Not that they should be, but new moms tend to be insecure about their postbirth bodies.

Fashion experts also have a general rule for stripes and matching them with other clothes: stick to only two types of print at once. Never add a third.

For safer combinations, match stripes with a plain piece of clothing or something with minimal prints. Finish off with low boots for a well-put yet easygoing look. 

5. The Kimono Trend

The kimono trend has been going around since last year and is still taking the fashion world by storm.

Although they aren’t the same as the traditional Japanese kimonos, the trendy kimonos these days usually have the same bold looks and patterns. They can turn even a jeans-and-tee moment really stylish and striking.

When it comes to choosing footwear, strappy heels or sandals can create a semiboho look, while flat slip-ons make for a laid-back chic appeal.

Kimonos are perfect to wear during the girls’ night out for the moms to relax and unwind. The kimono can be worn over casual clothes to the grocery. It’s just basically there to upgrade almost any outfit.


A mother’s instinct is to take care of the kids first before oneself, but it’s okay to want to feel and look good. In fact, self-love is important to keep up with motherhood. With just the proper outfit choices, it’s easy to become the fashionista mom.;tid=1;dt=6;
