Moms these days—they’re some of the most inspiring women we know. They’re running their own businesses, raising families, and maintaining a fiercely individual sense of style while doing it.
Ahead, we’ve hand-selected 21 of the most stylish moms in fashion, all of whom you’ll no doubt want to follow not just for the killer outfits, but also for the affirmation that, yes, you can have kids and still maintain a life and sense of self that’s all your own. There are stylists, photographers, designers, and more—all of whom deserve some serious love (and, hey, maybe a Céline bag) this Mother’s Day.
As glamorous now as she ever was behind the guise of @OscarPRGirl, the fashion consultant is toting along daughter Electra James—who, it has to be said, is one of the best-dressed six-month-olds we've ever seen.
#Weekendsarefortwinning when you're the daughter of Instagram's resident fashion star. Now, the real question is: Who has the better wardrobe? (Our money's on a tie.)
As accessories director at Allure, Chapoteau consistently knocks it out of the park with her outfits—but her real bragging rights come in the form of her adorable daughters. (The eldest, Pascale, even made a cameo in the magazine's September issue.) These two don't even know what kind of closet they're going to get to raid when they grow up.
Modeling's original social-media queen (yeah. Kendall; we said it), Rocha has the best posing buddy a girl could ask for: her one-year-old mini-me, Ioni James. Naturally, @ioniconran already has 50K Instagram followers.
Maryam Nassir Zadeh
She designs shoes we covet, runs a boutique we frequent, and has two daughters with names we adore: Luna and Anaïs. Top that all off with her perfectly offbeat personal style, and it's no wonder we're a little obsessed.
Taylor Tomasi Hill
You know her flame-red hair from street-style snaps, but her photos at home with baby Wells may be even better.
The founder of cool-girl wedding destination Stone Fox Bride is also mama to a pair of too-cute kids: Sunny, four, and Coco, one.
The Russian entrepreneur is hard at work building an empire with Buro247, her rapidly expanding digital magazine—all while toting around two kids, Georgie and Anna. None of that seems to have put a damper on her personal style, either: The petite powerhouse always looks tailored to a tee during Fashion Week.
He may have royal blood, but Solange's son, Julez, has been raised mostly out of the spotlight. Judging from the rare pics we do see of the 11-year-old, though, we wouldn't be surprised if he joins the cool-teen ranks alongside Jaden and Willow Smith in due time.
Come for the killer outfits, stay for the heart-melting kid pics—with two blonde tots under five, the Fashion Guitar blogger has both in spades.
Hedvig Sagfjord Opshaug
Her three-year-old daughter, Hedda, put even veteran street-style stars to shame at Fashion Week, making the rounds in London, Milan, and Paris alongside mom, the perennially chic Norwegian blogger behind The Northern Light.
When she's not showing up the rest of the stars on the Met Gala red carpet, the British model is hanging out with six-year-old son Riley—and designing a children's wear line for Marks & Spencer, inspired by his cool-kid style.
Marks & Spencer
Kristen Noel Crawley
With a line of fine jewelry sold at Colette (KDIA), an impressive wardrobe of Céline, Dior, and Yeezy, and two young sons (one of whom has play dates with North West), this L.A. babe is the ultimate 2016 power mom.
We love this model's laid-back vibe and personal style—but even more than that, we love her attitude toward raising her son, Micah, who, apart from being supremely cute, was born with Down syndrome, as well as her passion toward becoming a voice for an oft-neglected community.
Not many kids get to have their first years documented by a pro photographer, but there are perks to being a power blogger’s baby—as one-year-old Chloe will no doubt appreciate one day. Here's hoping she also inherits some of Lim's impeccable taste.
The Chriselle Factor
Christy Dawn Peterson
Whether on a bike, on a beach, or in a bathtub, the boho designer behind L.A. line Christy Dawn and her toddler son, River, look like two peas in a pod.
The photographer and founder of All the Pretty Birds is more than just our go-to source of Milanese style and healthy living inspiration—she's also mom to Piero.
The Austrian stylist has checked off all the fashion insider boxes—couture wedding gown, Chanel brand ambassadorship, Louis Vuitton campaign—but her latest milestone, five-month-old daughter Electra, is the biggest yet.
Ali and Cass Bird
One's a director at powerhouse agency the Wall Group, the other's a go-to photographer for Vogue, T Magazine, and more (she's behind the lens here)—together, they're raising two curly-haired cuties, Mae and Leo, and documenting it in a family photo album that looks (naturally) straight out of a magazine spread.
Maria Dueñas Jacobs
As of just a few weeks ago, the Elle accessories director went from being the mom of one daughter to the mom of three. (Yep, it's twins!) And while we're sure she has a lot of sleepless nights ahead of her, there are also, no doubt, some impossibly adorable matching outfits in her future.
