Easy Fashion Tips for the SAHM

I guess it’s safe to say that any mom would like to look every inch like celebrity mom Katie Holmes or the perennially posh Victoria Beckham. If you’re a Stay At Home Mom (SAHM) who finds it such a herculean task to look even a tad bit fashionable, don’t fret, as there are pretty easy ways to bring out the fashionista in you- even on a shoestring budget.

Highlight your assets. Modesty aside, each of us has our own set of assets. The key to looking good is to play these up and to take the attention away from our flaws. If you have great-looking legs, accentuate these with funky leggings. If you have been blessed with an ample bosom, wear a V-neck shirt to show off a bit of cleavage- tastefully, of course!

Keep baggy clothes at bay. Remember, sacks or tents are not flattering clothes. Wearing loose or baggy pieces do nothing to flatter your figure. Women are all about curves, so we should celebrate these. Even if you are pregnant, you should not limit your imagination to loose maternity clothes. There are lots of fashion pieces out there which aim to emphasize your body’s sexy parts like the black bodycon dress.

Keep them perky. Let us not underestimate the importance of underwear. Wearing the wrong bra will not only make you uncomfortable, but will make you look all saggy as well. If anything, ill-fitting bras will make you look older than you really are. Choose bras which provide support where you need it most.

If penny pinching is your priority, you can find affordable clothes in thrift shops or at your local department store- or wherever there’s a sale. You don’t have to get designer labels just to look good.

My outfit wishlist

Shopping for oneself is one of the least things a frugal mom can do for herself. If she had a chance to shop, it would not be for herself still, but for her loved ones especially her kids. I should know because I consider myself a frugal mom in some ways. There are instances when I’m supposed to buy an item for myself, but end up buying something for the kids instead.

I wish there is an online contest where participants are required to choose their outfit and state why they love to have those outfits in a blog post. This is something that I have been waiting for a long time – to wear a new outfit without making a hole in my pocket. But I still have to win the contest in order to enjoy the wardrobe in my wish list.

I wish there are similar contests wherein participants will have to choose wardrobe for the man of the house. I’m sure hubby will be delighted to participate the contest, too.

I love trousers!

and I missed wearing one.  I used to have 3 to 4 pairs of trousers mostly color beige. They are super comfortable to wear and can go with any tops.

I wish I have personal pictures while wearing a pair of trousers in those days.

Oh, I remember wearing trousers on my wedding day! 🙂
