We know that being a mum is no easy job and that you feel like there aren't enough hours in the day! You still deserve to feel glam, stylish and put together while you're facing the speed of the school run.
Choosing some wardrobe staples that are easy to style and a breeze to put on will mean that getting ready is the least stressful part of your day! A jumpsuit is an obvious yet trendy place to start, promising that you don't have to spend time matching your shirt to your trousers or holding a skirt down from blowing in the wind!
If you haven't taken the plunge and switched your style up with some basics in your wardrobe yet, here is our case for why jumpsuits are the ultimate mum outfit.
They're Quick to Pop On
One reason a jumpsuit is a fab choice for your wardrobe is how quick and simple they are to put on. When you're in a rush in the morning, and you've got to drop the kids off before work, all you need to do is unzip your suit, slide it on and fasten it back up! This means you don't have to make sure that the black of your top and the black of your jeans matches, and you don't have to remember what trousers are best suited for what shirt. You instantly appear put together in a jumpsuit, and with hardly any effort!
They're Weather Practical
A jumpsuit is a perfect base for layering, but long-sleeved jumpsuits are suitable for our British weather from the beginning. With our Emma burgundy corduroy jumpsuit, you're covered from neck to ankle and protected from harsh winds and cold. You don't need to spend time changing before your winter walk with the little ones; you only need to put on a thick coat and some sensible boots! You can be confident you won't feel a cold breeze up your thigh because a jumpsuit doesn't ride up like a skirt. You also aren't going to flash anybody should a gust of wind come along while you're taking your toddler out the car!
One of the most important reasons to love jumpsuits is their comfort. Particularly if you're a new mum or you're breastfeeding, a jumpsuit will suit your day to day life by keeping you fashionable. They're trendy while also being easy to remove, should you need to unzip to breastfeed, or if any little accidents happen. Our new Honor jumpsuit (launching Feb 1st!) is the perfect option for this with it’s crossover design.
Jumpsuits are also available in an extensive range of materials, so you can choose cotton, silk or satin for whatever you like the feel of most. Making sure you're as comfortable as possible means that you'll be well suited for all the curveballs that motherhood throws at you! The last thing you want is to be distracted by uncomfy clothes.
They're Reasonably Priced
Considering that a jumpsuit is an entire outfit, both your top and your trousers in one, they're well priced. Buying multiple sets of tops and skirts to rotate through can be a little financially overwhelming when you're looking to refresh your wardrobe, whereas a couple of jumpsuits are easier and less expensive to introduce. We understand that looking after children financially can make you feel a little unreasonable for spending money on yourself, but you deserve a treat for all the hard work that you put in! If a versatile Emma blush corduroy jumpsuit is your reward for the month, then you deserve to enjoy it without guilt.
