Like hairstyles, skincare, and makeup, the fashion world is ever-changing, with styles coming, going, and roaring back into style. Unisex fashion trends are one new trend, up and coming, and are a must for everyone. Today, men are embracing jewelry more than ever, and we’re all here for it; women are wearing menswear, which looks gorgeous, from casual blazers to full suits for more elevated events. If you’re like most moms, you’re busy, and one of the last things on your mind is how to stay on trend, let alone fashionable. Thankfully, some must-have unisex fashion pieces will keep you on trend but, more importantly, comfortable. Keep reading to learn about these pieces and how to incorporate them into your daily style.
Most fashion designers take their cue from streetwear and what naturally sartorially people wear on their own; one of the biggest influences that made its way to the common people is the regular t-shirt. While you may already have some oversized tees that are your go-to with leggings, investing in intentionally oversized tees (without graphics or logos) to wear with jeans or a pair of joggers will have you on trend and still comfortable. Moms understand the importance of comfort more than anyone – whether they’re home nursing babies, running errands, kids to school, or working from home – but you don’t have to sacrifice style to stay comfortable in an intentionally oversized and chic t-shirt.
You may be used to the humble tote bag for carrying groceries, enjoying a family pool day, or many other reasons, but trading in your handbag for a tote bag is a nod at on-trend unisex fashion pieces and the perfect carry-all. Tote bags are on runways, on influencers and celebrities alike, and even if it’s not your thing to follow every trend, embracing the versatility of the tote bag is something from which you’ll never return. You can even invest in a designer tote bag if you want, or go for a classic canvas tote in a cream or oatmeal color; either way, you can’t go wrong.
While men these days are embracing a more slender and rectangular watch style, it’s your turn to go chunky when it comes to your wristwatch. Sure, you likely rely on your smartphone for not just your busy calendar, coordinating events with your partner, and telling time, but if you want to invest in your personal style, a men’s wristwatch is essential. You can go with a cheaper Casio digital for a hint of nostalgia which is having a moment, but the iconic men’s Gucci watch is having a major fashion moment right now. It may not be in your budget, but it’s worth asking for as a birthday gift for Mother’s Day; it could also be the perfect push present – or you could treat yourself! You certainly deserve it. Men’s watches keep you in style all the time.
Oxford Button Downs
Women have been wearing button-down shirts for decades, but opting for a men’s version instead of one with darts and tailoring to your body will keep you on trend and, not to mention, worlds more comfortable. The Oxford button-down is the gold standard of button-downs; opt for one in classic ivory (easy to bleach out stains) or a light blue with wooden buttons. If you want more whimsy to your menswear, a white with blue pinstripes is perfect for spring and summer with shorts and fall and winter tucked into high-waisted jeans. If you’re a nursing mother, button-down shirts are a game-changer when it comes to feeding your newborn easily but still looking chic and pulled together. Pair it with a gold chain and a pair of loafers, and you’ll feel like you’re in a vogue photoshoot.
Other unisex trends to embrace are matching fleece sweatsuits, short sleeve button-downs, and cargo pants. Release the belief that these clothes can make you look frumpy – they’ll make you feel comfortable and comfortable – and nothing is more attractive than a woman who’s comfortable in her skin and clothing. Exude confidence by adding these unisex essentials to your wardrobe, and never look back.
