What do you wear most often? What is the combination you reach for again and again because it makes you feel comfortable and confident?? That’s your style uniform!
Since I have kiddos, I like to call it my “momiform” but even if you don’t have kids, you should have a style uniform! We want our clothes to be fashionable and functional. YOUR style uniform is the outfit your throw on and immediately feel comfortable, confident, and stylish! It’s the one you turn to when you’re not sure what to wear. It’s the one you wear and know, I got this. I can handle whatever life throws at me today. Knowing your “uniform” will also save you time so you always know what to wear in a pinch!
Usually, during the summer, I’m taking the kids to camps, going to games, running errands, cooking, cleaning, etc. Our summer looks a little different this year, but my style uniform is still the same! It’s simple…a basic tee or top, cool denim, and comfortable shoes. If I know I’ll get cold, sometimes I’ll throw on a jacket. But that’s the beauty of the style uniform…you can keep building on it or swap out pieces to dress it up. For example, I can swap out my sneakers for a pair of sandals and add a jacket to have a dressier look. Another note…your style uniform changes from season to season and even from year to year depending on what’s happening in your life. For example, now, that my kids are a little older, I no longer carry bags the size of a sink. I much prefer carrying only the essentials.
Mom Uniform Look #1
In this look, I’m wearing a pair of Frame jeans with really cool pockets and button fly details. I also love the cropped wide leg. I’m 5’4” but if you’re taller, these will be more cropped on you. I’ve talked about how jean trends are moving away from the skinny jeans and into baggier silhouettes here. Wearing a pair of trendy jeans like these will definitely make you look like a “cool mom” this summer!
The tee I’m wearing is by ATM and super high-quality. If you’re looking for something more affordable, this white tee by Madewell is another favorite for under $20! I did an entire video reviewing white tees that’s a must-watch! My sneakers are by Golden Goose and SO comfortable. I talk about if Golden Goose sneakers are worth the money in this post and share some less expensive options.
Momiform Look #2
This second look is similar…I’m wearing a white top, baggy jeans, and comfortable sandals! This top by Free People is a cool, safari-style that has front pockets, tie cuffs, and a v-neck. It fits into that summer utility trend I’ve talked about here and here. These Moussy Vintage jeans have a wide straight leg with minimal distressing I love. Moussy Vintage jeans are a little pricey, but they’re one of my favorite denim brands and worth the money in my opinion. I also linked a similar option for less. My shoes are SO comfortable…I talked about them in the June best sellers post. Wearing an outfit as simple as this is super stylish and will definitely make you look like a cool mom this summer!
