How to Make Your Momiform Pop!

October 01, 2018

Momiform is a hashtag that I use often on Instagram.  A momiform is basically your mom uniform.  It's what you wear everyday as a mom.  It's the mom friendly fashion that you feel the most comfortable in.  It can be any kind of outfit from athleisure, to a simple dress.  I find the most common momiform involves a t-shirt, jeans and some sort of flat shoe, at least that's my go to momiform.  Today I want to help you transform a typical momiform and make it feel more fashionable and give you more confidence in your everyday style.

Above I have two looks.  The one on the left is a simple.  There is nothing wrong with the look, but it's a little boring.  It could be style up a little more.  The look on the right is an example of how you can easily style up the simple look.

1.) Accessorize
Adding a few accessories to any outfit is an easy way to make your outfit more fashionable.  I use to love big chunky necklaces, but now that I'm a mom I'm all about dainty light jewelry.  I typically wear a dainty gold necklace, with a watch or small bracelet and earrings.  My favorite new earrings are my leather earrings from Brinley and Co.  I won them in a giveaway and I absolutely love them.  They are so light weight and make it feel like I'm not even wearing any earrings.  Whoever invented leather earrings was either a mom or a teacher, because they are the perfect statement earrings for wearing around little kids.  I've also been loving accessorizing with a scarf or bandana.  I like to wear one in my hair or on my purse.  I like wearing it on my tote purse because it just dresses it up a little bit.

2.) Tuck or knot your tee
I am a huge t-shirt fan.  T-shirts are not what they used to me.  I love the loose fit.  They are perfect for hiding any mom imperfections you might have around your middrif.  I find that when you tuck in your t-shirt in the front of your pants or tie it in a little knot, it makes your outfit look complete.  I love the French tuck, a term I learned from watching Queer Eye.  I think it's the perfect way to hide your tummy.  I'm also a big fan of knotting, if you've been following me on Instagram, I'm sure you're already aware of how much I love to knot my tops.

3.) Layer
Fall is the perfect season for layers.  Adding a layer to your outfit is always nice for practical reasons and also just helps to make your outfit pop a little more.  I love to layer with a cardigan, denim jacket or a big trend right now are utility jackets.  Cardigans are my favorite for fall.  I love a good neutral color cardigan, but adding a color is always fun.  Burnt orange, olive green, muster yellow and maroon colored cardigans are all great fall and winter colors to try out.

4.) Distressed denim or cuffing jeans
I love my distressed denim.  I don't know why, but having wholes in your jeans gives them a totally different look.  I also love to cuff my jeans.  I'm only 5'1, so I have to cuff my jeans all the time.  I really like the look it gives to your jeans though.  I like being able to show off your ankle a little.  Plus it makes your shoes look better.

5.) Pointy flats
I wear flats most of the time.  I just love the look of a pair of ballet flats.  Lately I've been loving pointy toe flats.  I think that wearing pointy toed flats makes your outfit look more polished.  They are defiantly my favorite shoe trend at the moment.  I have 2 neutral color pointy toed flats, but I have my eye on a leopard pair.  If you want to step it up a notch, I'd recommend trying out some loafers or mules. Those are super trendy right now and also very comfortable.

So there you have it!  Those are 5 easy ways to make your momiform pop.  What are your go to mom outfits?
