Clearly Victoria Beckham doesn’t mind dressing to the nines while doing errands with her little one(s), but let’s be honest: most moms aren’t chased by the paparazzi every time they leave the house. It’s important to be comfortable while getting through your day. If you’re a stay-at-home-mom, you’ll most likely be in comfortable, casual clothes every day. Splurge on the pieces you’ll wear most such as denim, comfortable flats, handbag and sunglasses. If you’re in the office 40 hours a week, invest in a great-fitting suit that be mixed with separates and take you year-round, and a pair (or two) of basic pumps. The retired socialite should own a few solid skirts or dresses that can be worn to luncheons and cocktail parties, and some conversation-piece accessories such as a vintage broach or scarf.
