Unless you're Taylor Swift who likes to chill for an hour after her morning work out, most of us are frantically busy in the morning. Particularly when you have the added pressure of getting children ready. Which is why it is important to have some stress-free styling tips up your sleeve. In this short 5 minute Mama Life London video I show you six quick and simple ways to look more stylish, which will come in handy when you only have a few minutes to spare. 

I talk about cool shoes, interesting jewellery, scarves and outerwear that transform simple outfits in the time it takes to make a cuppa.

A wardrobe of the right little extras lets you be more relaxed about the rest of your outfit. For example, your outerwear should never be an afterthought. So many people only see you in your coat—if you're wearing an unexciting outfit underneath your trench, no one will ever even know!

Layer your necklaces. You can do multiples of the same material, or better yet, go for contrast.

Got compliments on your outfit today? Snap a photo of it with your phone. You'll have a quick reminder of what to wear the next time you're in a rush.
