Lizzie Parker Fashion Star Zulily

The key to building a stylish wardrobe is to buy versatile pieces that make getting dressed a breeze.

Especially if you’re a mom on-the-go. And no one knows that better than Lizzie Parker (left). The Seattle, WA based designer, who has two kids of her own, is known for her chic yet comfortable designs that work for women of all ages.

She’s also appeared as a contestant on the first season of NBC’s Fashion Star. But it’s her new role, as business development manager for women’s fashions at Zulily, that allows her to help women find fashions that really work for their everyday lives.

Below is her list of pieces that every mom should have in her closet. Check it out:

Colored Leather Tote Zulily

A colored leather tote bag. Not only will it make your outfits pop, but it’s big enough to carry around all the important stuff (diapers, anyone?) you and and your kids need. I love bright blue or maybe an electric plum. It really works in my otherwise black wardrobe. Plus, a good carryall can go from the schoolyard to work to farmers markets.

Designer Jeans Zulily

A great fitting pair of premium jeans. Find a silhouette (skinny, flared, straight) that you feel fantastic in. These are definitely an investment item. If you get the right cut, they can make you feel great everyday.

Statement Necklace Zulily

A statement necklace. This can really dress up your day-to-day T-shirt and jeans look. I love a long pendant necklace with a little color.

Printed Sneakers Zulily

A pair of fun printed sneakers. I mean let’s face it, we all would love to run around in designer pumps, but the reality is that’s not really practical for most moms. That does not mean you can’t have fun. I love a fun sneaker with a print – they will always make you smile when you put them on.

An amazing dress. Special events are always popping up in the life of a busy mom. So to avoid frantically looking for an outfit day of, invest in a special dress or two that you love. You can always switch up your accessories to give it a different feel for each occasion.

Talk about swagger!

To further prove Blue Ivy is the heir apparent of hip hop royalty, Beyonc recently posted a photo of her 17-month-old wearing a pint size jewel-encrusted purple crown by Vivienne Westwood just a month after sharing this adorable snapshot of her daughter sitting on her own throne (well, custom director’s chair).

And although she didn’t add a caption, “Bow Down” (the title of the single her superstar mom released earlier this year) is more than perfect.

But Beyonc didn’t stop there. She also added pictures of items from Blue Ivy’s luxe-worthy closet: a pink frilly dress and mini fuchsia Tom Ford heels that are so gorgeous we wouldn’t be surprised if Suri Cruise is calling the designer right now to snap up a pair for herself.

We absolutely love Blue in all her finery, but our favorite photo is the mother-daughter duo sharing a sweet moment backstage (below).

In a recent interview for her animated film Epic, Beyonc revealed that she tones it down when crooning to her daughter.

“I keep my Beyonc voice for the stage and I have my simple mommy voice,” she laughed. “I remember hearing a story about C line Dion and she was saying, ‘When I sing [to my kids] they cried.'”

Mom Kourtney Kardashian has one! Aunts Kim and Khlo own one too. And now Penelope Disick is the latest family member to add Balenciaga‘s chic city tote to her closet.

“Penelope is wearing the little Balenciaga bag that I got her for Christmas!” Kim posted on Instagram Friday, along with an adorable photo of the mom-to-be with her 7 -month-old niece and her mini yellow handbag.

Is Kim gearing up for her little one? If she has a little girl, we have no doubt her wardrobe will be the envy of the playground. Although the expectant reality star recently revealed that if it’s up to dad-to-be Kanye West, their baby will be wearing lots of “big chains and leather pants.”

And to be fair, Penelope wasn’t the only Kardashian-Jenner kid to receive luxe fashions for Christmas. Kylie and Kendall also scored during the holidays.
