THE QUEENS OF THE CARPOOL LANE
THE QUEENS OF THE CARPOOL LANE
As backpacks get purchased and kids lay out their first-day-of-school outfits, full-time moms and part-time elementary school chauffeurs strive to be the coolest mom at school. From the too cool for school to the conference call carpooler, we've got Mom's first-day-of-school outfits picked out and ready to go, no matter her style.
MADAME (PTA) PRESIDENT
Sophisticated without being stuffy, our PTA President-Elect embodies a sense of ease while maintaining her put-together style. This matching Lee Mathews tunic and pant can be worn together for a cohesive, chic look or broken apart for effortless separates. She's paired hers with a Dries Van Noten tote bag, perfect for lugging around her laptop, meeting minutes, and stuffed-to-the-brim planner. Paired with an easy Rachel Comey sandal and simple jewelry, she's ready for whatever the next bake sale fundraiser can throw at her: even, God forbid, store-bought cookies.
SHE'S NOT LIKE MOST MOMS
She's a cool mom. With her daughters dressed in pink–it's Wednesday–she rolls up to school a cool fifteen minutes late; the traffic is just brutal if you try and get there on time. Leather pants and a Christopher John Rogers sweater vest ensure that while she won't get dress-coded by school administration, she will turn heads. Paired with a silver Wandler heel–she's got flip flops in the car, she's not that cool–and a JW Anderson twister bag, she's ready for whatever her day has in store. Which might be signing them out of school early to go to lunch.
NOT HER USUAL GIG
The chauffeur calling off was one of many crises this mom has taken on today. From smoothing things over with the investors across the pond to assuring the board this quarter's numbers don't spell out doom and destruction, her sleek suit is up for it all. Paired with the ultimate Destree bag and a boot equally made for walking and conference-calling, her head-to-toe black ensemble shows she means business. She took half a day's vacation to pick her daughter up from school today. It'll hurt in Aspen later this year, but what's half a day of skiing?
THE CARPOOL VETERAN
Years of parent-teacher negotiations and PB+J prep have led to this, the defining moment of an elementary school career: the third grade. Whether it's leveling up that reading score or finally tackling the science fair, this mom handles it all with a level head and a casually classic style that makes it look easy. She's paired elevated classics from Khaite with a Rachel Comey boot and an embellished belt from Isabel Marant to create a truly seasonless look. When it comes to both carpool style and school administration politics, you'll be hard-pressed to find a better expert.
ART GALLERY GURU
After wild success painting the school's mural, this mom has not stopped getting school event invites. Guest of Honor at the Arts assembly and an esteemed judge at the yearly talent show, her artistic inclinations have netted her immense prestige with the school administration. She embodies her free spirit with an elevated throw-on dress and a bomber jacket from Sacai. Pairing it with a simple boot leaves her uninhibited, perfect for impromptu dance lessons or in case inspiration strikes and she ends up in front of a canvas all day.
