5 things you can borrow from your mother’s wardrobe

Is it acceptable for a grown woman to wear her mother's clothes? Of course yes! Can you wear any and every of her stuff? Not really! What then can you wear? Here are some . . .

Some ladies will never wear their mother’s clothes no matter what, probably due to difference in body size, age, dress sense and taste. Anyways, what’s the big deal in wearing your mother’s? Dressing up in your mother’s outfit is dependent on both of you. Whether your mother’s dress is trendy enough for you or not, if she doesn’t like you wearing them, or you don’t feel comfortable in them, that mother/daughter cloth sharing experience will never happen.

Still wondering what’s the big deal is in wearing your mother’s clothes? This is why:

  • Your mother knows timeless fashion – she’s been there, done that, got the T-shirt
  • She owns the best fabrics that exude classic elegance
  • You connect/bond better when you share her clothes
  • You can always give your mother’s cloth a modern twist
  • Just because you can!

Here are some of the things you can rock straight outta your momma’s wardrobe.

Vintage clothes

Most of the trendy outfits today were once a trend when your mother was a girl, meaning, her clothes are not entirely out of this world. You can wear them in a fashionable style for a vintage look.

Make up

Make up is make up, no one will know if you use your mum’s maroon lipstick or her kajal eyeliner, as long as they are good products and look great on you.

Wedding Dress

Mothers usually have the habit of passing down their wedding dresses to their daughters, especially the first born. Although this culture is more practiced in the western world, your mum will be so proud seeing you walk down the aisle in the same dress as she did.

You may not wear the exact same dress she wore, you can replicate your mum’s wedding dress with a touch of urban style to it – if that’ll make you more comfortable.

Wrappers

Majority of Nigerians have their mother’s wrapper in their homes, for domestic use though – towel/blanket purposes. Dressing up in wrapper once in a while is not a bad idea. You may not want to buy one since you won’t be repeating the attire, so borrowing your mother’s is better than investing in what you won’t use often.

Wigs/Extensions

Wigs have been around for a long time and your mum probably knows how and where to get the good stuff. They may not be in the pattern and style you’d love, but they sure are of good quality.
