5 Mommy Closet Must-Haves


5 Mommy Closet Staples


Last Thursday, I got to attend the annual Smart Parenting Magazine Meet and Greet for avid readers and fans. It was such a fun and awesome event. (read about it here).

One of the speakers was Cosmopolitan Magazine (PH) Fashion Director Donna Cuna-Pita.  Being a mom herself, Donna shared 5 closet staples that every mommy must have:

5. The little black dress (LBD)

Every mom, well every woman, should have an LBD in her closet. It's our go-to dress especially for sudden occasions. The LBD goes well with both heels and flats. Just make sure that you choose a dress depending on your own body type. 

4. Good fitting pants

We all know how hard it is to find good fitting pants. Donna advises that if we find one, buy two pairs. Why? Because chances are, we will use it often. 

3. A good set of underwear

When was the last time you bought a new set? Hopefully it wasn't during your last pregnancy. When choosing panties, go for the plain old cotton panties - preferably in beige or nude color.  Black or white can usually be seen through your clothes' fabric. And don't get the lacy ones, unwanted adipose might bulge out. 

2. All-purpose bag

You know us moms, we bring everything but the kitchen sink. Mommies should have an all purpose bag that we can grab and go. Choose a bag that you can use for several occasions, be it for a play date or a lunch date with your amigas. (UPDATE: it doesn't have to be a LV Neverfull. It's just something I want to have.)


1. A crisp white top

Donna suggests that we invest on a wrinkle-resistant crisp white top. Like the LBD, it would go with anything. Plus, it provides for a classic look. 



Do you have everything on Donna's list or would you like to add something to it? Please, do tell. I'd love to hear from you.

  5. I think these must-haves are not only for moms but for any woman for that matter. LBD, why not...but white top for me? I don't think so. I look fat in it lol! Plus the fact that I hate seeing specks of dirt (which sometimes you can't avoid) in an immaculately clean and white top. It drives me nuts hahaha!
