Dressing for Success for Mothers

There’s one thing that puzzles me and I am going to write it down here. If you’re a high-flying career woman, you’ll dress in a suit and look the part of a corporate panther in order to give people the impression of a successful career woman. What happens is you’re to give someone the impression that you’re a successful mother? Mother, according to the strict definition in the dictionary, is also a career. Motherhood, if strictly defined, is a career choice. Therefore, if a mother is to be dressed for success, how should she dress herself up?

This is something I’ve pondered over for quite a long time and now, I am ready to answer you.

For a mother to dress for success, she would have to fulfill only one criterion. But it’s something subjective – the mother would have to dress in a way that makes her feel happy and confident. The mother would have to dress in a way that makes her feel like herself. When a mother dresses and expresses herself in a way that makes herself feel most comfortable, she emits a kind of ‘comfortable’ and ‘contented’ aura and that makes her look, sound, act and behave in a very motherly way. A calm and collected demeanor.

Ask the people around you about how they think a mother should DRESS FOR SUCCESS and you’ll get a puzzled look. When a mother dresses in a way that enables her to express herself and remain true to herself, then she can and will be a good mother. A mother should dress in a way that distinguishes herself as a separate entity from her children and husband. She should dress in a way that says, “Hey, I am a mother but I am still me”.

While this is true for everyone in this world, regardless of whether you’re a woman or a man, mother or a father, this rule is more important for a mother because her status as a mother is not as significantly recognized in the society. People tend to regard a CEO higher than they would a Mother. Have you ever seen people print as follows?

No? Neither have I. Come to think of it, perhaps we should!

Therefore, take pride in being a mother and dress in a way that helps you express yourself as you. You’ll, inevitably, become a better mother.
