Year-Round Fashion Must-Haves For Moms on a Budget

1. A Great Pair of Jeans

For decades, the skinny jean reigned supreme.

Thankfully though, these days, there are many great alternatives to choose from.

Everything is back in style right now as far as denim is concerned.

Prefer the look of wide leg pants? Go for wider-leg jeans.

Do you miss how flattering the flares you wore in high school were?

Thankfully, flares and bell bottoms are back in style.

Did you know that straight-leg jeans are the most universally flattering denim cut, regardless of body type?

Good thing virtually every fashion brand makes several washes and styles of a straight leg.

The point is, find the comfortable and flattering jeans on you and stick to those – there are no rules!

2.Midi Dresses 

While maxi dresses were in the spotlight forever (and still look amazing on everyone), the midi dress makes serious waves and is a must in your wardrobe.

Midi dresses have a bit more of a polished look than maxi dresses.

The length of the midi dress is more flattering on most body types, not to mention they’re a great way to show off cute shoes that compliment your outfit.

Midi dresses also work year-round with a pair of tights in the fall and winter and a cute ankle boot and are just as cute in the summer with flip-flops.

The great thing about midi dresses is they are a “one and done” look you can throw on and look put together in a pinch for play dates, soccer games, or date night.

Let’s face it; you’ve got enough to think about than planning an entire outfit some days.

3. A Chic Top

A chic top can be a crisp button-down shirt or a fancy silk top.

When paired with jeans and a nice jewelry set, it can instantly transform a casual look to dressy.

4. Versatile Jewelry Pieces

It is advisable to buy statement pieces that are not fashion trends.

Every wardrobe should have a set of earrings, necklaces, and bangles that match.

And yes, there are ways to own pretty jewelry pieces without breaking the bank!

5. A Great Pair of Shoes

Just one pair is all you really need to pair with jeans, a dress, or even a pair of slacks.

Pick a neutral color that would work for most outfit combinations.
