We understand that a mom can be so self conscious during the first few months of pregnancy or post pregnancy. Being a mom, also brings about a lot of changes in the body that gets difficult to dress up. Keeping this in mind we have put together a list of 5 fashion tips for the new mother. The right clothes are what you need to look and feel great.
Have a wardrobe strategy and take cue from these 5 fashion tips!
1. Drape It Up
Sweatpants are a saviour for sure. But we suggest you ditch them for tops and dresses that drape over and away from your tummy. Opt for something that doesn’t cling to your body. Our picks for you include T-shirt dresses, empire-waist dresses, tunics and tops with ruching and gathers.
2. Accessorise It Right
Any outfit can look great if paired with the right accessories. Opt for longer necklaces, chains with pendants or beaded ones. They create an elongating effect, making you look slimmer. Also go for dangly earrings instead of studs as they would brighten your face.
3. Know What To Ditch
We agree that empire-waist tops, some wrap dresses and flowy jersey dresses could still look great after pregnancy. But the key here is knowing what to ditch. We suggest you give up on the rest like maternity jeans.
4. New Clothes
The two key considerations while getting a new dress should be its hemline and neckline. Figure out what looks good on you. Cardigan-style sweaters, boot-cut jeans, three-fourths-length sleeves and A-line dresses are a few great choices that look good on anyone.
5. Shape-wear To The Rescue
Have to attend a special function while you are still working on your baby weight? Shape-wear such as Spanx can help you and these days they are available in a wide variety like leggings, pencil skirts and tank tops. Just make sure that there is not a huge amount of compression as it can get uncomfortable and unhealthy.
