We spend much time ferrying kids between different activities. Soccer, cricket, ballet, art classes: they’re all places where the kids get to run around, blow off some steam – and they get to do it in cute uniforms!
But why let the kids have all the fun? Take inspiration from your child’s favourite extracurricular activity and use it as an outfit starting point. Time to play dress-ups!
Screaming support from the sidelines or handing out orange slices at half-time, the soccer mum already practically has a uniform of her own. Take it to the next level with these:
A cute cap for sporty-cool AND shade from the sun:
A varsity-style tee keeps the vibe relaxed.
These denim cut-offs look like something you wore when you were 16, but the high waist and longer leg make them mum-friendly.
Sporty flats with bonus animal print. The ultimate Saturday morning shoe.
Your tulle-twirling, bunhead baby looks so sweet in her leotard and tutu, but even if you’re not a dancer, there’s no reason you can’t indulge in some pastels too. Although maybe in clothes that are slightly more forgiving on figures that aren’t in their teens anymore…
This floaty tulle skirt will have you feeling like a prima donna.
A wrap cardigan top that doesn’t mince words (spangly green hotpants optional).
And ballet flats… of course!
Make like the players and stay cool in all white.
A nod to the baggy green.
Give your little batsman some encouragement to hit big with these subtle number earrings. Howzat!
Art class mum
This smock dress has an arty vibe and a flattering shape.
The print on these sandals means you won’t notice if they get another paint splash or two.
This fox-print scarf is a work of art in itself! Wind it into your hair for serious arty-style chops.
What activities do your kids do?
And are you ever tempted to dress in theme sometimes?
