Getting everyone dressed and out of the door is tough enough for any mommy, but it’s even worse when there’s an event to go to such as a wedding, a funeral, or even to the weekly church service.

Knowing how to dress your family when you’re already stressed and nervous can be hard. You might have been taught to dress your boys (or girls) in a certain manner and have made it so that you can’t deviate from the norm in any way.

If this sounds familiar, don’t stress out about getting everyone ready for the next big event; try out these family fashion hacks for everything from weddings to school events. Whether you’re dressing a newborn or advising a senior member of your family, you’re covered if you follow these family fashion tips.

Keep tabs on your budget

Remember, fashion isn’t cheap. There’s not a lot you can do about this, but you should at least make an effort to keep your budget under control so that you can still afford food and shelter for your family after a shopping spree.

As a note, that doesn’t mean you should buy cheap. Quality floral dresses for girls going to a wedding or tailored suits for boys going to a funeral are worth the investment.

Reuse and recycle

It’s not hard to spend a fortune on designer goods, so rather than buying new outfits, you could use the clothes you already own and recycle them for different occasions.

If you have too many clothes because you’re constantly having family events, consider removing a few pieces that are too small or out of style and using them in other ways.

Better yet, donate your old clothes to charity or give them to someone who needs them more than you do. When your family has worn out any number of outfits over the years, keep what’s left in a bin at home to be re-used at another time.

Get creative

You don’t have to stick to the dress codes of your social circles or your parents’ generation. Think of some out-of-the-box fashion ideas and make sure your family is always prepared with a belt, a scarf, a pair of gloves, or even a hat that fits their style.

If you want to add a unique touch to an outfit, decorate the clothes with accessories like sequins or colored ribbons. A fun way to dress plain clothing up is by adding children’s clothing to adults’ garments for an “effortless” look.

Don’t get complacent

Although recycling clothing is advised from a cost point of view (as mentioned above), it’s also important to remember that complacency is the enemy of fashion. You can only wear the same clothes for so long before you start to stick out like a sore thumb. Avoid this by always trying to update your wardrobe, even if you think it’s unnecessary.

If you find yourself in a rut, try getting together with your family to accessorize each other’s garments and see what style fits everyone and which style doesn’t work for anyone.
