You’ve given birth to a beautiful baby recently, so now you want to focus on yourself a bit more? Welcome to the new mom club, you certainly aren’t the only one! Here are five ultimate style tips every mom should know about, so check them out and step up your fashion game. Enjoy!
Wear what you love without any fear
The fact that you’re now a mom doesn’t mean that you should wear clothes you don’t love. So stick to your personal style and you won’t make a mistake. This is very important, as a large number of new moms tend to switch from their preferred style to more polished looks, as they think that such outfits are much more appropriate for mothers. Well, guess what? Parenthood isn’t a reason to give up on your favorite clothes, so don’t be afraid to wear anything you like. After all, if you want to wear your stylish plus size swimwear that makes you feel good in your own skin, why not go for it?
Stay comfy no matter what
On the other hand, a lot of new moms opt for comfy clothes – either consciously or unconsciously, so make sure to give them a try as well. When we say comfy, we mean cozy sweaters, oversized hoodies, cute sweatpants, and other similar items that can keep you warm and allow you to move with ease. Moms who swear by sweatpants often say that these are true lifesavers – especially when compared with skinny jeans that can be a little bit constricting. Apart from comfortable clothes, you should also pay extra attention to your underwear selection. There is a variety of amazing nursing bras that will make your life with a newborn much easier, so give them a try and you’ll see what we were talking about.
Don’t stop wearing maternity clothes
Yes, we know that the majority of women can’t wait to get rid of their maternity clothes after they give birth, but we must say that there is no reason for you to stop wearing them. First of all, these probably were expensive, which means that throwing them away would be quite unreasonable. So, if you stocked up on gorgeous maxi dresses during pregnancy, all you need to do is to get a nice belt that can accentuate your waist and you’ll pull them off like a true fashionista. On the other hand, if you have a few pairs of maternity jeans, just combine them with oversized T-shirts that will cover up the elastic waist. As simple as that!
Turn to your favorite accessories
You’ve figured out that your wardrobe consists mostly of monochromatic pieces, but you don’t want to invest hundreds of dollars into brand new garments? Don’t worry at all because you can always turn to your trusty accessories! That’s right, these can completely transform even the most ordinary clothing combo, so be sure not to underestimate the power of nice accessories. For example, trendy scarves that feature a cool print or an unusual pattern are a good idea – especially when worn with black or white shirts and a pair of jeans. An elegant wristwatch is also a great choice, as well as a cute little hat that can take your outfits to a whole new level. Even a pair of statement earrings will do wonders for your everyday combos, so give them a fair shot and you won’t regret it!
Take advantage of current trends
Even though we don’t recommend keeping up with the latest fashion trends at all costs, we must say that there’s always a way to take advantage of current trends without breaking the bank. In case you weren’t aware of it, athleisure has been one of the hottest trends in the industry for quite some time, so why wouldn’t you incorporate some of its elements into your combos? For example, you can match the aforementioned maxi dresses with a comfy pair of sneakers, or even a classic blazer with oversized hoodies. Going to brunch with your best friends in sweatpants? Sure, why not! Even your favorite celebs, from Kardashian-Jenners to Hadids, have gone completely crazy about athleisure, so give it a try, too, and stay trendy without spending a penny!
As you can see, coming up with stylish fashion combos doesn’t have to be as tricky as you probably thought – even when you’re a new mom who has a lot going on at the moment. So, if that’s one of your main goals at the moment, all you need to do is to stick to our tips and fashion hacks and you’ll make it happen. That’s a promise!
