In the hustle and bustle of the season (and with any busy mom’s schedule), it’s hard to find time to curl every piece of hair into perfection. Instead of stressing over tedious styles, try to stick to a fishtail braid or sock bun. They only take a few minutes and are a great way to look put together on little time. Kourtney Kardashian is one mama who rocks these hairstyles well.
Accessorize your holiday ensembles with a new set of sparkling baubles. Drop bib necklaces can jazz up a solid sweater dress for all of your festive soirees this season. And don’t be afraid to stack bracelets. Mix a gold link bracelet with a glitzy pave bangle and icy blue cuff for a pop of color. The more the merrier, especially when it comes to diamonds or gem stones.
Nothing quite says Happy Holidays like a sequin skirt or pant. Pair statement pieces like this JCrew pencil skirt with a cozy cashmere sweater in cool gem tones or a crisp white oxford shirt or popover.
Faux leather leggings are perfect for the style conscious new mom. Pair them with a chunky cable knit sweater in a bright hue or a tailored blazer for a great mix of edgy and casual flare. They’ve been worn by celebrity mamas like Victoria Beckham, Miranda Kerr, and Hilary Duff and are just the right fit this winter season.
Stilettos might not always be an option if you’re chasing little ones around or tending to a newborn. A comfortable smoking flat in a bold print or pattern is the perfect way to fill the void and still complete your holiday ensemble. Try a leopard calf hair or a quirky pair of Stubbs & Wootton slippers in a polka dot print.
