10 Tips to Move From Single Style to Mom Style


So Long, Farewell ...

Unfortunately, you may have some things in your wardrobe you're just going to have to say goodbye to. Mom style mostly comes down to what's appropriate or inappropriate. Some of the things you wore when you were single and ready to mingle might raise some eyebrows on the playground.


  • Ultra low-rise jeans: This should go without saying, but if you prefer to wear a thong, it should never be visible to the general public.
  • Very tight, low-cut tops and dresses: Think about whether or not they are still age- and event-appropriate.
  • College-style outfits: We're talking about running out to the convenience store in your pajama bottoms, slippers and a sweatshirt. It was cute when we were 19 -- not so much today.
  • Any tees or clothing with inappropriate slogans: Remember, nobody wants to be the only person at the PTA meeting with a shirt that reads, "BEER: It's not just for breakfast anymore."
