Fall / Winter Athleisure Capsule Wardrobe For Moms
Today let’s chat about making mom life EASY. I did a segment on NBC12 About Town Today talking about how to create a fall/winter athleisure capsule wardrobe to get more bang for your buck and make mom life super easy and still stylish.
How does that work? Well, if you have just a few neutral pieces (think black, white or gray), then make those neutral pieces pop with accessories – this makes them SO interchangeable, not to mention makes our mornings easier. Who doesn’t need that, right? If you can go put on your basics and they match no matter what – even if you’re getting dressed in the dark – you’re good to go and you’ll show up to the carpool line looking cute. Can you relate?
So first for our tops, start with basic white and black tees that you can put any layers with. The any-wear loose fit tees from L&M Company are a great choice. Then add a layer with a graphic sweatshirt to mix it up and give it a little edge. I adore this MAMA sweatshirt by Coastyle Weddings, its definitely a favorite of mine, which is why I wore it today! Next is a oversized flannel because who doesn’t want to be cozy with this cold weather but still look really cute.
Now on to our basic bottoms. I have a pair of bike shorts shown here because they’re super on trend. I still wear them when its cool because I’m lucky enough that I don’t have to get out of the car in the carpool line. If you have to get out of the car these might not be your jam, you can swap them for any basic bottom like black leggings or black joggers. I love these black comfort leggings from L&M Company. For shoes, try a basic fashion forward sneaker like this vintage running shoe, or an Ugg boot, I love these short ones. When some women see me they’re like, “Oh my gosh I have on Ugg’s, I’m so sorry!” I’m here to say NO GIRL, wear them! It’s cold outside, we need to be functional too!
Third is how you bring this all together. Its elevating your basics with extras. So my key to making athleisure look good and not sloppy like you just came from the gym or were pretending you just came from the gym looking like a hot mess (cause you all know we’ve done that) is adding luxe accessories. Sunglasses are going to be a moms best friend especially in the morning. My favorite are a big black pair of sunglasses. They don’t have to be expensive, they just have to look expensive. For jewelry, I love this brand, Properly Buttoned, they take vintage designer pieces, like Chanel zipper pulls, and make them into jewelry. This is one of my favorite ways to elevate athleisure basics, just pop on a necklace that says Chanel, its real Chanel but half the price (or less). You look like you spent a lot of time and money and really you didn’t. Of course, I do a five minute face with some clean beauty products and then you’re looking incredible, yet comfortable, and it took no time flat. That’s winning mama!
