What to Get Mum for Christmas?
Re-Vamp Your Mum’s Wardrobe.
6 Looks to Suit a Mum of Any Age.
The million dollar question: what to get mum for Christmas (that doesn’t totally suck)? That book you bought her last year - that she never got around to reading - was great. Or that spa voucher that expired ‘cause the poor woman didn’t have an hour to herself. Even that boring (but totes adorable) pot plant you gave her the year before last didn’t have a chance against the dog. But hey, the thought counts.
This year, give your mum a gift that she'll actually use - a new wardrobe! Not only will she actually enjoy it, but it’ll brighten up the face of the women who gave you life. And that’s what Christmas is all about! Here are six wardrobe looks to style your mum up ready for Santa.
Do it like a Lady
Black sunglasses? Check. Jewelled necklace? Check. Print dress? Double check. It’s safe to say that Anna Wintour, the Editor-in-chief of Vogue (since 1988!) is the epitome of style - and with these three essentials you’ve got your mum a swanky outfit fit for the runway.
Just Jeans It
Age ain’t nothing but a number. Linda Rodin - the most fashionable 66-year-old on the planet - proves just that. Jeans are a favourite for the Rodin beauty company starter, and she shows us how to style double denim in uber style. If your mum’s looking for a style icon, she just found her.
Life’s a Beach
Kris Jenner is the ultimate “Momager”. But when she’s not managing her trillion daughters, she’s holidaying in the south of France. Take a Chanelo from Kris’ book and get your mum beach and/or poolside ready with a tres chic kaftan, panama hat and a fab bikini.
Comfy Does it Best
We all love comfort, especially when you’re running around on Christmas day to make lunch perfect-O. Give your mum a present that’s stylish AND comfortable with a silk maxi, a killer leather belt and sandals for maximum ease.
Let’s be honest, Aussie weather has started to resemble that of our British compadres #cloudy. For those chilly-summer days, get your mum to channel mum-to-supermodels Yolanda Hadid’s look. White pants, loafers, and a grey knit will do the trick (coat, optional)!
Mum’s the word. And whether your dad wants to admit it or not - she’s also the boss. Give your mum a boss look with a tailored statement suit (in this case, a floral one), add some sultry heels and white tee and she’s ready to take charge.
