1 // The Button Down Shirt

Easy access for breastfeeding? Check. Dress up an activewear outfit? In a cinch. The perfect trans-seasonal in-betweener? You know it. The button down shirt might just be the queen of wardrobe staples for mamas.

Try Blanca for on-trend block colourways and the ultimate in oversized proportions.

2 // PJ’s all day

Let’s be honest – as a mama, there are going to be days you never make it out of your PJs. And there’s no shame in that! Why not make it luxe experience, with some boujee pyjamas that double as loungewear?

We love Not So Mumsy and Papinelle.

3 // The Matching Set

Want to take the guesswork out of getting dressed? It’s one step up from jammies, but a matching set makes getting ready a no-brainer. Perfect for hectic school run mornings, or mama brains carrying the weight of the mental load. Plus, sets are great for growing bellies.

Hit up The Lullaby Club for matching mama and mini sets. Too cute!

4 // The Classic Tee

You can’t talk about wardrobe staples for mamas without mentioning the faithful tee. Pull her up to breastfeed, wear her to the Pilates, or pop on a blazer for an elevated take.

Want to keep things mama-centric? Adieu Cliche do mama style like no other – think slogans like ‘Early Morning Club’ and ‘it’s just a phase.’ Or find fun basics at your local H&M or Zara.

5 // Something you feel fab AF in!

Here’s the bad news: it’s easy to lose yourself in motherhood. There might be days where you wear your trackies and a stained top, throw your hair in a bun, and barely recognise yourself in the mirror. The good news? You’re still you. And sometimes that requires wearing sequins to dinner, or doing the school run in an outfit that makes you feel like a rockstar. If you’re in a style funk, buy the ballgown. It might make you feel better. And nothing looks better than happy.
