Don’t you just love clothes that fit you so well, you never have to worry about how you’ll look in them—especially when you don’t feel like you’re on you’re A-game? Building a wardrobe that’s flattering, versatile and makes you feel confident is crucial for crazy busy moms.
Owning a few figure flattering blouses that work with pants or jeans is a lifesaver for those mornings when you don’t have time to plan out an outfit—whether you’re going to work or rushing around on the weekend. “A loose fitting blouse that hits right at the top of the thigh is universally flattering for most women,” says supermom and fashion expert Jacqui Stafford. This mid length elongates your legs because it doesn’t cut off your hips, while stylishly hiding any love handles. It’s also long enough to tuck in or leave out without looking like you’re wearing a potato sack. If you’re not a fan of your arms, try a ¾-length sleeve, which hides the upper arm without concealing any accessories like a cuff or bracelet you might to use to dress up the blouse.
