Parental Fashion: From Drab to Fab

Being a parent is one of the most rewarding jobs of all. But, sometimes other important things in life get pushed aside and forgotten.

For all the mum’s and dad’s out there, it is time to trash those somewhat embarrassing stereotypes that surround parental fashion. Get ready to awaken a reformed style that is modern, bold, and daring.

Stand out and become the focus point of any rowdy school playground. Parenting can be challenging, so you need a style that does not waiver throughout the day. A look that can stand the test of time, and the test of children’s play.

Here are our top four style suggestions that will suit any parent in any situation you may encounter. Just think; durability, long lasting and fashionable!

1920’s Inspired Style

Bring vintage back with a modern touch. This super style is a great choice for fashion conscious women, who may be shopping on a budget.

For clothing, check out your local vintage shops for some chic yet affordable pieces.  You may stumble upon a thrifty hat or antique item that would go perfect with your new look.

To get affordable vintage style lenses, try out the “Hallmark 8816” for only £11.30. The cost of these glasses, have no affect on style. These glasses offer a 1920’s inspired look, that evokes retro vibes.

Stay Comfy

As a parent, having comfortable and long lasting, durable pieces is a must. You need glasses that will last throughout the whole day while you are out and about running errands. While out with your children, the last thing you want to be worrying about is having uncomfortable glasses.

The “Look Designs Eye Street 026” lenses offer lightweight durability, and ultimate comfort. A compact fit with striking colours – these glasses are sure to keep you looking sharp whilst being practical and affordable.

Break away from boring monotone basics, and try donning a pop of colour that’s a little more daring.

With London Fashion Week hot on the press right now, unisex has been all the rage on the catwalks. The “Hallmark TR1816” glasses are gender neutral and ideal for any eye wear enthusiast.

Channel funky designs, and vibrant, ombre colours. Shake off those lame parental stereotypes, and start breaking fashion barriers. Be the envy of all your friends, and children’s parents as you rock your new look.


As a parent, there is often a resistance to treat yourself and spend money on luxury items for your yourself. But, I argue that you deserve it.

You have one of the hardest jobs in the world, being a parent. You deserve the occasional treat.

SelectSpecs offer an array of designer sunglasses, which can settle those designer cravings. One of my favourites, for all the mums out there, are the “Tiffany & Co. TF2084” glasses.

These lenses are a more feminine take on the popular, geek chic trend, with a luxurious touch. Treat yourself to a beautifully designed pair of designer glasses. It will be the best investment you make. Making you a stylish, fashionable and on trend mum!

Find a style that suits you, and run wild with it. As a parent it is important to have practicality, and comfort from your optical & daily wear.

Do not be afraid to evoke fun and character through your newfound style. Splurging should be encouraged, and eye wear is massively important, a vital investment.

Whatever look you go for, you will be the envy of all your parental peers before you know it. Be bold, and seep the results.

Say goodbye to those boring stereotypes, and say hello to to the cool new stylish parent you will become.
