Mia Arcenas Branellec: ‘Dress for comfort—but accessorize’

When she became a mom, Mia Arcenas Branellec started to make a few style compromises in favor of comfort.

But looking frumpy was not an option for the fashion designer. “As a young mama, I still want to feel like myself by wearing my favorite things. But of course now, I prioritize pieces that are easy to use while carrying my baby,” she says of son Jacques Emmanuel, who just turned 1.“Since becoming a mama, my style has become more about being comfortable and having ‘easy access,’ especially since I breastfed from the start.” It meant a lot of button-down blouses, dresses, flowy tops, pants and trousers.“I wear a lot of whites, neutral tones and shades of blue,” she adds.

Her tip for fellow young moms: “Dress comfortably. Mix and match key pieces. Build your wardrobe with items that can last you a lifetime so you can just buy a few things to accessorize your look.” —CVM
