Â Â Â Â As a busy mother, coats can often seem like a messy afterthought with purely practical purposes. Regardless of how much effort you put into dressing like a Fashion Momma during the day, your style zeal will fly out the windowÂ after slipping on a messy, over-sized coat.
Â Â Try stealing inspiration from stylish mommas like Reese Witherspoon and Brooke Shields (shown above), by wearing adorable coats that are still comfortable and warm. Look for jackets that leave room for thick sweaters and multiple layers (without drowning you in size), and try sticking to neutral colors (like black, brown or white) to get more use out of your coat.
