7 fashion tips to help you reinvent your wardrobe post-baby - hero image - motherpedia

Being a new mother is hard work and staying stylish and well dressed during this time seems almost impossible. It’s a difficult time where you may sometimes feel you just haven't got the time to spend considering your outfit choices and even if you do, you have little to no clothing that actually fits anymore! But if you're looking for some fool-proof fashion tips that will make this exciting time a little easier in the wardrobe department, then here's a list of 7 fashion tips to help you reinvent your wardrobe post-baby.

1. Opt for drapey pieces

Avoid living in your favourite pair of sweatpants, there are other options that are just as comfortable. Choose something altogether more feminine such as a draped top or dress that will lightly lay over any areas you may want to hide. Clothing with loose pleats or ruching are also good choice as they can define a loose shape that can also cover problem areas. When wearing loose clothing just remember to keep it to just one piece. For example, if you choose to go draped up top team the loose item with something altogether more form fitting down below. This will insure you don't completely lose your figure and will help you to look longer and leaner.

2. Invest in shapewear

Shapewear is an excellent option for making everything feel a little tighter, smoother or smaller on occasions where you want to look and feel great. There is a shapewear option for every outfit so take advantage of these garments as they can make a real difference to how your outfit looks and feels on your body.

3. Ditch the maternity jeans

Get rid of anything in your wardrobe that is not going to be of use post baby, these items will only take up valuable wardrobe space. There may be some maternity dresses or tops that you could team with a waist belt allowing you get more wear out of them. The rest should be donated, or even sold to give you some extra cash which will come in handy for investing in new pieces.

4. Consider Tailoring

Once you have lost the baby weight and your body has gone through the majority of changes, it may be a good idea to get your favourite pieces tailored. Clothing that fits well can draw attention to your favourite areas and make you feel more comfortable.

5. Accessorize

When you’re trying to look a little more put together and stylish, clever use of accessories can make a huge impact. A statement necklace that hangs lower than your bust can create the look of a longer neck, which in turn will make you look a lot slimmer. A pair of earrings can also draw attention away from the body and onto the face which may make you feel more comfortable and confident. Accessories such as scarves are also essential for adding some colour or interest to a more simple or practical outfit and require little to no effort to throw on. When choosing a scarf, opt for something oversized and long which will look more like a style choice rather than an item you are using to cover up with.

6. Dress for your body type

When investing in new clothing after pregnancy, your new pieces should flatter your figure. Dressing for your body type will ensure that the slimmest parts of your body are emphasised, so find out what silhouettes work best for your shape and stick with them. Enlisting the help of a personal stylist is a great way of finding out what suits your figure and how to dress for your individual body type.

7. Know what to avoid

It’s just as important to know what to avoid when reinventing your wardrobe post-baby. If you’re unsure about how to style certain items it’s best to steer clear of them and stick to what you know. Large scale prints and metallic items can make you look larger than what you are, so unless you know how to correctly pull them off, try to avoid such clothing.

Hopefully the above tips should make keeping your personal style easier during the busy and exciting period after pregnancy.

I would say it is never possible staying stylish and well dressed as a new mother. You may find many difficult things and responsibilities coming across your way. Your post made me somewhat comfortable and hopeful that I can try to be whom I waslouvre museum private tours  before.
