Look and Feel Great With These Fashion Tips for New Moms

12:00 AM

I recently became a mommy to my beautiful baby boy, and while I love spending time with my son, looking and feeling great can sometimes be a challenge. What I've come to realize is that getting my pre-baby body back may take time, but I can be in charge of what I wear by choosing pieces designed to accentuate my favorite features. After doing some research, I've decided to share a few figure-flattering pieces with you.

Flattering Pants

I think the Huffington Post is right on target when they say that boot-cut jeans are universally flattering. If you're not feeling great about how you look in your pants after baby, then invest in a pair that will expand and contract with you. Jeggings, yoga pants, or bootcut jeans with an elastic waist and plenty of stretch will serve you well whether you lose a few pounds after giving birth or not. Pair them with heels or booties for a leg elongating look.

Face First

Do your makeup if it makes you feel better, and then wear a top that either shows off some cleavage, or a statement necklace that you love. This will draw the eye up, brighten your complexion, and hopefully improve your outlook. Vibrant colors also have the ability to lift your mood, so a top that's colorful, rather than black or gray, would be a good pick. Shy away from patterns, though, as these can add weight, even to small frames.

Tailored Jackets

Perfect for hiding that post-baby tummy, Lyst points to well-tailored clothes that can serve a new mom well. A structured jacket will accentuate strong shoulders, and nip in the waist through purposeful tailoring. These look great layered over a loose blouse or trapeze-style top. Choosing a black blazer will assist with slimming your figure, especially when left unbuttoned and worn over a contrasting color, like white.

High Heels

Popsugar has some great postpartum style tips, but one of the best takeaways has to be wearing heels. Get yourself a comfortable pair that will go with everything. Flesh tones are a great place to start, because this means neutral and leg elongating, because it's harder to tell where you end and the shoes begin.

Loose Tops

Whether it's a sweater, tee, or a button down, loose tops are a must-have after baby. Not only are they great for nursing, but they are also very forgiving. Flannels are great for fall and winter, and can be topped with a vest for an extra touch of style. Once you're back to where you want to be, adding a belt around the waist or just under the bust will create some structure.

I love your healthy attitude toward physical health and beauty after childbirth! There are several time sin women's lives when our bodies change a lot and this is probably the most dramatic. Trusting that you'll be able to recognize yourself in a while is so right on! I'm heading into perimenopause right now and my body is doing some crazy stuff. But, it's so important to keep on loving and taking care of yourself. Thanks for a great post!
