And yet, they have a way of making mom clothes look so chic. Here are 20 celebrity mom approved and inspired outfits you can easily copy with minimal investment, and mostly using clothes you probably already own, to up your mom clothes style game.

It’s one of the most versatile and timeless looks.

Most likely, you have a button down shirt of some sort in your closet already. And I know you have a few pairs of jeans.
Pull out as many blouses as you have, and then pull out all your blue jeans. Start mixing and matching, and see how the different tops pair with the different bottoms. Lay all your outfit combinations out, and snap a few pictures on your phone for reference.
Now, add in different types of shoes – heels, sandals, sneakers – and accessories. Pretty soon, you’ll have multiple outfit combinations to try out!
Kourtney’s outfit is a perfectly polished, sophisticated look that any mom can rock at the office, or to an evening outing. While it’s a pretty specific style of black and white suiting, it’s something you can copy relatively easily at home.

This is a gorgeous mom outfit for work or a girls night out or even date night.

Sarah Jessica Parker
If we want to talk about a great pair of mom jeans, let’s start with this Sarah Jessica Parker outfit. It’s monochromatic with shades of black and grey, and it’s glammed out with jewels on her belt and shoes. SJP’s look is great for all aspects of your day, from running errands to brunching to girls night out.
To copy this SJP mom outfit, you’ll need a cute black top, a pair of black or grey jeans, a statement belt and a pair of statement heels.
An all white outfit is so chic for summer, but we all know we can wear white after Labor Day. This is a cool and collected outfit for moms everywhere.

Never, did anyone ever, make a white t-shirt and jeans look so chic. Leave it to Victoria Beckham to do such a thing. Her jeans are a great example of the perfect mom jeans – they’re high rise, and their flare silhouette fits her body well. As we age and have our kids, a high rise jean is a great option, because it ensures we won’t have the dreaded muffin top (not that Beckham has anything to worry about in that department).
Beyoncé is a celebrity mom who knows a thing or two about great style, and she’s put together a great outfit for girls night out or date night. A pair of high waisted, wide leg trousers with a fitted top are just the way to make a statement the next time you go out – a la Beyoncé – and the white and navy look is finished off perfectly with a pair of nude heels.
If you have an event to go to, or if you work in a corporate setting, this is a beautiful way to wear a patterned jacket, and match your accessories in a very chic way. Here, the Duchess of Cambridge has paired a stunningly patterened jacket with matching bag and shoes. Look for similar items in your own closet or at your favorite store.
A beautiful top and pants outfit like this should be in every mom’s closet. It’s not too tight, and not too fitted, and can be just as easily worn with strappy sandals as it could be worn with a great pair of white sneakers.
The key to this outfit is that its simplicity means that it’s also really versatile. In addition to just changing up the look with your footwear choices, you can either go really simple or really edgy with your jewelry, bag, and sunglass choices as well.
File this under an everyday look with a very updated twist. It’s seemingly very simple -a white tee and khaki-ish pants. But it’s the unique shapes and silhouette of the whole look that really give it a stylish edge.
A beautiful v-neck, sleeveless, fit and flare dress like this one worn by Carrie Underwood is a wonderful option for moms. The shape of this style is flattering to so many body types. Whether you’re a stick, apple, pear shape, inverted triangle, or hourglass shape, this dress silhouette will look stunning on you. And you can find styles from super casual to extremely dressy, so you’ll be able to wear it for so many occasions. This particular dress would be beautiful for a daytime wedding, baby shower, or wedding shower.
It was so hard to pick just one of Paltrow’s outfits to feature, because her style is just so good.

Every mom needs a little dress that we can wear out to dinner or an event. This is a great example of that kind of dress. It features a little bit of pattern and a little bit of texture, and it fits extremely well.
Do you have some old dresses hanging in your closet that you could bring back out and wear again?

If you can’t find any, I’m happy to help you find an outfit for any occasion.
A pinstripe blazer with edgy jewelry is always a good idea. And these days, the bralette is a fun foundation piece that you can wear underneath. P!nk is always adding a cool girl vibe, and here she does it with her choice of jewelry and undergarment. Take a cue from her and go for the unexpected touches to make an otherwise conservative look, anything but.
In this outfit, Angelina Jolie could just as well be picking her kids up from school after a long day of work. An all-black look is chic anytime, anywhere. Here, she opts for a little black dress, a black jacket, black pointy toe heels, black bag, and black sunnies.
This look is not hard to copy at all. While the pieces you currently own may not be as designer (or maybe they are), you can certainly pair together the basics to create a super stylish Jolie look alike mom outfit. This look will take you to work, or out on the town to the theatre or dinner.
Witherspoon shows us a great option for a beautiful day dress, with pattern and a flared fit. Floral dresses are all the rage, and so is her clothing line, Draper James. Like so many of the mom outfits on this list, you could dress this look up or down with so many different types of shoes and accessories.
Try a dress like this with heels and simple gold jewelry for a timeless dressed up look. Or wear it with sneakers and a cropped cardigan for a more casual option.
