When it comes to clothes, moms need versatility as much as style. Pieces have to be affordable and multifunctional, but no woman wants to sacrifice functionality for flair. Not if she can help it, anyway.

A floral print may be the answer. It is contemporary yet classic, casual yet sophisticated. If florals feel too girly, pair them with a leather jacket or some waxed jeans. No matter how you do it, you are sure to be on-trend.
