If you think new mom fashion solely consists of stretchy pants, messy buns and spit-up infused T-shirts, then you’ve come to the right place. Whether you’re pregnant or just had your baby, find out how to break those new mom stereotypes with these fashion tips for date night, errand runs and more. Feel good in your skin by following this trio of new mom fashion tips.
1. Accessorize, Accessorize, Accessorize!
New moms know all-too-well that time is precious. Luckily, looking and feeling good doesn’t have to take much time or effort. In fact, you can start by doing some simple accessorizing — and, no, your baby bump and baby carrier wrap don’t count as accessories, but your diaper bag might. Nowadays, stylish diaper bags look more like designer backpacks or oversized purses.
Between grocery shopping or taking the kids to the park, you can look stylish and tackle your mommy duties. Whether you’re running errands or hitting the town for date night, accessories can be the difference between a “heck yes!” or a “hot mess” outfit. Add fun accessories like flashy belts, colorful earrings or even a cute purse to outfits you already own.
Have a nice blouse and some old blue jeans handy? Then take it up a notch with a bold, red lip and matching red heels or flats. That little black dress in your closet? Adding a dangly necklace or scarf and a fitted leather jacket will have you looking and feeling like a brand-new woman. Indeed, cute accessories are a new mom’s best friend!
2. Spice Things Up
Just because you’re a new or expectant mom, doesn’t mean your future has to consist of ugly bras or granny panties forever. Even if it’s the last thing on your to-do list (or not at all), wearing a matching bra and undies set is exactly what you need right now.
Regardless of the type of clothes you decide to put on, wearing matching undergarments will give you the confidence boost you need and make any new mom feel young and sexy again. Knowing this, celebrate yourself — and your body — with a new bra and panty set.
3. Treat Yourself
Skin and hair can make or break a good outfit. Of course, you don’t have to style your hair or put on makeup every day to look good either, but performing regular skin and hair maintenance is like night and day for new moms. Pregnancy hormones and breastfeeding can all make your skin and hair dull and dry.
But getting more sleep, staying hydrated and scheduling regular facials and hair appointments can help. Schedule yourself a spa day for a relaxing facial or treat yourself to a haircut with fun colors or lots of layers for added volume. No matter what you’re wearing, good hair and skin will always make any new mom look like she got a full eight hours of sleep.
You’re Sexy and You Know It
If you’re pregnant or just became a new mom, you may be on the hunt for a style makeover or just a little confidence boost. New moms can look and feel good with a few simple tweaks to everyday outfits. Just because you’re a new mom doesn’t mean you can’t look and feel sexy, too!
