The busy mom lifestyle is definitely not incompatible with looking chic and put-together at all times. But if you prefer to limit your clothing choices to versatile, basic staples, then the best way to upgrade any look on-the-go is with the help of a few statement accessories. From the perfect jewelry pieces without an expiration date to the staple handbag and watch, here is the modern mom’s guide on the must-have accessories for an instant outfit upgrade.

Chic, comfortable, sturdy yet not too heavy, casual but streamlined at the same time – the right handbag definitely needs to tick a lot of boxes. Number one: pick a neutral shade you absolutely love and wouldn’t mind committing to day after day. Next, make sure to check the hardware (which should not be on the maximalist side, but rather minimal) for quality, as well as the seams. If you love a polished look and you’re looking forward to getting a lot of use out of your investment, make sure to ditch the boho styles and go for a structured handbag that can retain its original shape for much longer.

Whether you opt for Tahitian pearl earrings or a classic pair of crisp white beauties, any little black dress, pair of skinnies or smart-casual ensemble is sure to get an upgrade with the right pair of bling. And if you’re not one to go for the classic neutrals, then a feminine and romantic pair of pink pearl earrings is definitely a fresh and youthful alternative.
