Modest Wear for Mothers of Toddlers: Tips and Inspiration

September 22, 2023 ยท by Andrea Long

Being a mother of a toddler is a demanding but rewarding job. You're constantly on the go, chasing after your little one and keeping them safe and happy. It can be difficult to find time to get ready in the morning, let alone put together a stylish outfit. But that doesn't mean you have to sacrifice your personal style. With a little planning, you can easily dress modestly without sacrificing comfort or convenience.

Here are a few tips for dressing modestly as a mother of a toddler:

  • Choose comfortable, loose-fitting clothing. This will give you plenty of room to move around and chase after your toddler. Avoid anything too tight or restrictive.
  • Opt for full skirts and dresses. This is a great way to stay modest without sacrificing comfort or style. There are many different styles of skirts and dresses available, so you can find something that flatters your figure and fits your lifestyle.
  • Layer your clothing. This is a great way to stay warm in the winter and cool in the summer. It also allows you to adjust your coverage as needed. For example, you can layer a top under a cardigan or button-down shirt.
  • Accessorize. Accessories are a great way to add personality and style to your outfit. A scarf, hair accessory, or belt can all help to elevate your look.

Here are a few outfit ideas for mothers of any age children (but especially  those toddler years):

The Your Favorite Dress is such an easy "throw on and go" option for mothers of young children. No layering is required for this adorable dress, and the A-line silhouette allows for easy movement while still being covered. The fabric is buttery soft and comes in several different prints and colors for every preference. 

The New Chapter Dress is another quick and easy option for busy moms. The ruffle hem and empire waist give a dainty look to this simple dress. Wear this dress alone with sandals for a quick errand run or pair with a blazer and loafers for day at the office. The 5 different colors in this dress give you great options!
