With so much of your time and energy being taken up by mommy-ing, it can be hard to get motivated to change out of sweats or your standard easy-on work outfit. But as they say, when you look good, you feel good. Since you should feel comfortable in the clothes you are wearing, so you can conquer all of the new challenges, let us help you with these styling tips for new moms.
1. Everyday Basics
Build a wardrobe of style workhorses that you can rely on day in and day out. Pieces that look great on you, and work with each other. An easy pull-on pant (or a pair of jeans if you prefer), t-shirts or seasonless pullover sweaters, and a jacket you love (we love denim or a great blazer).
2. Find Colors You Love
When choosing your go-together classics, keep a limited color palette in mind, so no matter which pieces you pull, everything will look great.
3. Add Accessories
A pair of earrings and a necklace or a few bracelets can dress up a look in under 30 seconds. Wrap a cute scarf around your neck to look instantly chic. And a little cover-up, blush and lip gloss do more than a designer outfit could for a tired mom.
4. Wear Heels
Everyone looks better in heels; they’re slimming and lengthen your legs. Obviously, stilettos are not for daily mom duties, but there are plenty of comfy shoes with a one-to-two-inch heel out there that are totally practical and cute.
5. Embrace the bun and the effortless style
Some days, the perfect mommy style is not really meant to happen. So, embrace the messy bun, sunglasses, your favorite jeans, and graphic t-shirt.
6. Take a little Makeup
Take a day off and experiment with applying as little makeup as necessary to see which style makes you look more gorgeous. Most of the time, a little makeup is all that is required to bring attention to yourself. Your hairstyle and cosmetics should complement each other to create the perfect stylish mom look.
7. Carry a Cute Bag
We’ve come a long way in terms of baby gear style; no longer must moms carry pastel diaper bags covered with cartoons or baby rattles. In today's world, your belongings may be a style choice in and of itself. Pick a modern style in a pattern you love and in a color scheme that works with your coat.
