As moms, we don’t always have the time to put together a cute outfit before leaving the house. And if you’re like me, you’re wearing a lot of athleisure looks. 🙂 There’s no shame in that! But if you’re wanting to step up your style a bit more, I recommend leaving out your outfit the night before. This will cut down on wasted time in the mornings. If that doesn’t sound like something that will work for you, another easy way to add some fun to your look is by wearing some playful accessories. A cute bag, sunglasses, bracelets, or a hat can really elevate and make your whole ensemble. Here are 16 playful accessories that we think should be added to your “mom wardrobe.”

1. Headbands

Headbands have made a big comeback the past couple of years. If you think your hair is too flat or isn’t doing what you want it to, a headband can draw the attention instead! At first I wasn’t too sure about this trend, but now I’m all about it!

2. Bracelets

These bracelets are so vibrant and fun! I love how you can personalize them with your name, your child’s name, a meaningful word, or whatever you want.

3. Fun Sneakers

Chasing around the kids in the same old sneakers? Same here. This is why I got these cool Superga leopard sneakers and recommend that you do, too! They definitely step up my mom look while still remaining comfortable.

I’m all about a good pair of sunglasses that I can throw on especially if I have to run somehwere and don’t have any makeup on. These classic large tortoise sunnies are the perfect thing. And for only $32, you can’t beat them!

10. Sandals

Ever since I became a mom, my high heels have hardly been worn. Maybe a few times for date nights, but that’s it. Flats and sandals are my go-to’s, and these two sandals are perfect and playful.

14. Earrings

One of my favorite ways to dress up an outfit is to add some statement earrings. However, if you have a baby on your hip then I recommend going with the studs options. All three of these earrings are gorgeous playful accessories that make any look.
