Mummy Fashion: How to Dress for the School Run this A/W 13

Summer is over and the kids are heading back to school, and let’s be honest, who else is dreading that fashion parade outside the school gates? For those of you who simply can’t phantom looking anything but your best whilst dashing from the school gate to the office, here are our top A/W 13 style rules that will help you to become the most fashionable Mummy in the playground! 

1) The Coat
The most fashionable way to wear your coat this A/W is oversized, and we honestly mean, the bigger the better! If you’re worried about being swamped out by this trend, then, take inspiration from one of the most fashionable Mummies around, Katie Holmes. She’s a big fan of the oversized coat look, in which she’s often been spotted doing the school run!

2) The Print
Lots of us have a secret guilty print pleasure, but nobody wants to be pigeon holed as the one who wears that boring Mumsey print! So, avoid the stereotype and opt for A/W 13’s trendiest print in the form of the cool winter floral. Described as dark, edgy, and luxe, it’s the ultimate statement making pattern! A kimono is the perfect way to work this trend.

3) The Colour
Whether it’s pale or dusky, the hue of the season is set to be pink, and featured upon all of our favourite catwalks from Louis Vuitton to Topshop Unique! It's most definitely not about those cutesy tones, though, so, opt for icy cool shades to give your outfit a bit of an edge instead.

4) The Bag
The key is to play it casual with a bag that’s as stylish as it is functional, and our casual collection featuring the (below from left) Alfie hobo, Ted crossbody, and Stan shopper bag ticks both of those boxes! As they're neither overly casual nor overly smart, they're perfect for making the transition from the school gate to the office. View our entire casual collection here
