A Guide to a Fashionable Holiday for Mothers


The snow is falling outside and Christmas carols are heard everywhere. The holiday season is upon us once again. For those who are mothers, you know that your holiday will be quite different from those who aren’t. Sure, you will be enjoying a cocktail or two, but you will most likely do so in the presence of children who will need your undivided attention. As a mother, you want to look your best, but you also want to feel comfortable.

If this fits your description, I have the perfect solution for you. Of many retailers out there, Ann Taylor offers the-most-perfect holiday looks for mothers. Following this season’s trend, Ann Taylor has a myriad of holiday dresses from Silver Sequin Shift Dress to Black Bell Sleeve Lace Shift Dress and the  Gold Lace Ruffle Cuff Sweater Dress. Sweater dresses are perfect for those who will need to be active, chasing around a couple of toddlers or carrying them in your arms. Ann Taylor’s sweater dresses come in many different colors, but I recommend trying something that is in tune with the holiday spirit, such as the Shimmer-infused Pleated Skirt Sweater dress that I picked. Not only the dress provides ample coverage, the material allows you to move in many different directions without accidentally shifting or slipping. Velvet is another excellent choice for the material, as their softness makes being around children easy and you will have no guilt if their skin rubs against your dress.

Along with the dress come shoes. Ideally, it would be nice to wear a pair of pretty heels to accompany the dress. Ann Taylor provides plenty of them. Jalene Suede Bow Pumps in red is a reasonable choice, as its 2-inch polished metallic heel and bow in the front embody the perfect holiday spirit. If you are more of a risk taker, I recommend Mila Sequin Pumps, as they will provide just enough sparkle for the holidays. Unfortunately, as many moms know, heels may not provide the comfort you need, especially when around your children. I, knowing that I will have to be standing around for a long time with a baby or two in my arms, opted for a pair of flats this season. Aria Velvet Bow Loafers are made of velvet, topped with a grosgrain bow. Moreover, they have padded footbed for extra comfort, which is exactly what us mothers need. Another good option is Selita Jeweled Suede Loafers, which are also padded for comfort. They feature sparkling jewels on top of the dazzling holiday look.
