LIKE MOTHER, LIKE DAUGHTER
There’s nothing that illustrates the bond between a mother and daughter quite like a girl’s shopping trip. And, with Mother’s Day quickly approaching – on Sunday, March 11th if you forgot – why not surprise your mum and treat her to something truly fab this Mother’s Day?
When our #OTLgirls are as cool as you are, we’re betting the women who raised you must be too! So, whether your mum is your best friend, your style icon, or the source of your embarrassment, we’ve got the perfect present for every kind of mum.
A mum yourself? Well, this is the perfect excuse to treat yourself! You have got the hardest job in the world, after all.
Whether she’s bossing the boardroom at work or commanding the kitchen at home, Kris Jenner seamlessly manages to juggle her own hectic schedule and that of her six kids, too! Her all-black, smart, and sophisticated style leaves this Momager Queen looking sleek and chic, even if on the inside she’s stressed beyond belief. Sticking to a monochrome colour palette makes styling outfits effortlessly easy, and structured pieces like a business blazer are just what a working mum needs in her wardrobe arsenal. Finish the look with black patent ankle boots and some seriously chic sunglasses. Who said a mother has to be all work and no play? Definitely not Kris Jenner!
THE POWER PLAYER
Whether she’s showing off her latest collection at Fashion Week or turning heads on the school run, Victoria Beckham always looks perfectly polished. Harper Beckham is sure to inherit all of her stylish mummy’s hand-me downs and designer handbags and we’ve never been more jealous of a seven-year-old…who’s with us? Wardrobe staples with a trendy touch are Victoria’s secret weapon and she’s created a fail-safe uniform of the trench coat, an oversized shirt, wide leg trousers and killer heels. This formula is super easy for any mum to copy for their own style, and it works for day or night – just don’t forget to call a babysitter! Posh Spice would approve.
She may have been one of the first supermodels ever, but it’s no biggie as Cindy Crawford is letting her daughter rule the runways now. This is one laid back lady with the style to match, (it must be all that yoga she does!). Nothing says laid back like all American style - we’re talking wide leg denim jeans and an off-the-shoulder knit top, perfect for a casual day out. Though the sun has yet to make an appearance here, across the pond in LA the sun is always shining so add an American accessory and opt for gold aviators to give your skin a sun-kissed look. Though she may be laid back, she’s still fashion conscious so pair with white ankle boots, the Cindy Crawford fashion forward update to the black ankle boot.
THE HOLLYWOOD MUM
Never afraid to experiment with a bold print or pop of colour, Beyoncé is one wild fashion mama. There’s no such thing as over the top for the Hollywood Mum, and with animal print so on trend for Spring / Summer, Queen Bey is the perfect inspo for your own mother’s day gift guide! The key to always hitting the mark is to take a fashion risk but keep things trendy, rather than garish. Opt for modified colourways, like a navy muted zebra print or alternate leopard print. Don’t forget accessories for the full Sasha Fierce look, like a platform heel with a touch of bling and some statement drop earrings.
THE PRIM AND PROPER MUM
Proving there’s more than one way to rock a tailored coat and midi dress combo, Kate Middleton is a style icon for the prim and proper mum. Unable to resist a peter pan collar or nude court shoe, Kate always looks put together, never a hair out of place. A Chanel-esque boucle co-ord is oh-so elegant and right up Kate’s street. Pair with some cork block heels that aren’t too high and a pearl necklace to keep things classy.
