Baby wraps are one of the most versatile baby products on the market! You can wear them to the grocery store, shopping at the mall, to church, or even just out and about on errands! Baby wraps are so functional because they let you hold your baby close and still have your hands free to do whatever you need to get done without having to worry about holding your child the whole time. However, it can be difficult to know how best to wear baby wraps in ways that are both functional and flattering. These three different baby wrap styles will help you do just that!
With a cardigan
Whether you’re going for classic style or trying to stay warm, cardigans look great when paired with baby wraps. A baby wrap is big and bulky, but that doesn’t mean you can’t style it. One of my favorite ways to wear a baby wrap is by pairing it with another layer: Cardigans look great when paired with one of these slings because they keep your shoulders warm while concealing how large (and warm) your swaddled baby really is. A long cardigan drapes nicely over an oops-I-forgot-to-swaddle moment or even over both of you if you want to be extra cozy on chilly days.
With a dress
Yes, dresses are flattering on everyone, but you can really make them shine when you wear one with a baby wrap. To truly show off your style, try wearing yours with a few midi dresses for women. You’ll be able to create an hourglass shape when you place the wrap to accentuate your curves that show off your silhouette and prove that baby wraps can be fashionably functional at the same time. For example, try pairing yours with an off-shoulder linen dress, or for a boho style, pair a linen or cotton dress with your baby wrap and a rancher hat. Then layer on necklaces, earrings, and any other accessories to complete your look.
With a pair of jeans
Dressing for an occasion can be one of life’s biggest struggles—especially when you want to look both casual and professional. Fortunately, there are some pretty fashionable ways to wear a baby wrap that strike that balance between comfort and style. To get started, make sure your baby wrap is lightweight, colorful, and adjustable. It also helps if it comes in at least two sizes (something slim enough for petite women and something bulkier for moms with big-bellied babies). From there, put on your favorite pair of jeans and a fun top. Some moms prefer to wear a bodysuit when wearing a wrap so that their top can stay put instead of having to tug their tops down because sometimes a baby wrap can make loose tops twist and hike up.
If you’re looking for something fun and versatile, think about picking up a baby wrap in a few colors. These gorgeous garments come in dozens of patterns and styles, so you’ll never get bored with your wardrobe choices. Just make sure that whatever wrap you choose is of good quality—your baby deserves nothing less!
