A mum who rocks red boots is a mum after my own heart. Former supermodel and Heart of Dixie star Jaime King has always been a head turner. But it wasn’t until after she gave birth to her darling son, James Knight, that my mum style crush began. Here’s how we can channel this cool, colourful, and chic Jaime King style into our everyday mum outfits.
The Punchy Printed Jacket
A little statement jacket goes a long way. Even if we’re running on three hours of broken sleep, we can still make our way out the door looking stylish thanks to this one item. Tap into this spring’s hot floral prints or a head-turning pop colour. Jaime’s mixed geo print is all kinds of amazing with skinny denim or dressed up with a short skirt or date night little black dress.
The Classic White Shirt
When in doubt, go with the classics. A breezy white button-down shirt is a surefire way to achieve stylish mama status. This classic item works with anything and everything—your favourite pair of boyfriend jeans and pop coloured flats or cool camo print shorts and chic sandals. My favourite white shirt accessory? A hollywood siren shade of red lipstick!
It’s a challenge to accessorize when our mama minds are overstuffed with daycare checklists, grocery lists, to do lists, and daily schedules. Having a few decorated tops is an easy way to achieve the fully styled look with one less step. For these items, a little sparkle, applique, or embroidery goes a long way. Opt for tops that have these adornments sprinkled on a few sections and avoid the all-over.
In my mum style book, a denim shirt is always a fashionable answer. Jaime opts for a light wash shirt in this look, but there are also beautiful deep indigo shades that look equally chic (and a little less casual). Lately, I’ve loved—like Jaime—pairing my favourite denim shirts with my go-to black skinny jeans, ankle booties, and a cosy heavy-gauge cardigan. Once the weather warms up, shorts, flounce skirts, and roll up cargo capri pants will be my denim shirt’s new best friends.
