Motherhood can be the most joyful experience, but perhaps the only worrying thing about becoming a new mom is to see your body get out of proportion in areas you could never have imagined it would.
The struggle to find the perfect clothes to flatter your body type every morning can be exhausting. You might be a first-time mom, or you might already have children. Regardless, you may find yourself in a place where you feel that your style has not been up to the mark.
Research shows that up to 71% of women face immense pressure to look physically attractive along with other responsibilities and demands of motherhood, such as maintaining a successful career and being an attentive and involved parent.
Becoming a mother is rewarding, but a tough and stressful job that barely leaves any time or energy for women to put in their styling. According to research, only about 20 percent of new moms reported clocking more than 7 hours of sleep a night.
Apart from the lack of time, post-pregnancy changes in a woman’s body may also hamper her confidence and make it hard for her to feel comfortable in her skin. Once you have a child, you have to deal with the snot runs, the chocolate smears, and the endless amount of stains on your mom uniform.
Despite all these tasks consuming your time, you can still be a stylish mom, without even hiring a nanny or a housekeeper to buy you the time needed for self-styling.
Here are some simple yet useful tips that you can follow to become a stylish mom this spring!
When we look through the perspective of fashion, there has never been a better time to be a mom, as current fashion trends are leaning in favor of moms. The fashion industry is seeing the rise of ‘athleisure’ clothing that puts comfort above everything else, and that is precisely what new moms need.
From cool sneakers to chic flats, moms or not, all women are opting for comfortable choices. Being pregnant makes your feet swell, making walking and even standing painful. So, if you want to be comfortable and stylish at the same time, you should opt for some elegant flats.
Flats are a perfect combination of comfort and style, and there is a wide variety of flats to choose from. From mules to artsy flats to even ones that are sporty or professional, these shoes are a style statement you cannot go wrong with!
My favorite pair of flats this spring are these espadrille style slip-on sneaker from Camtrade’s new premium brand, Enjoiya. They are super comfortable, flexible, no need for breaking them in, and they come in a wide range of colors if you’re feeling daring!
T-Shirts With Cool Prints
A t-shirt and a pair of jeans is an ageless fashion trend that can never go out of style. Not only does it make you effortlessly stylish, but the outfit is extremely comfortable, too.
More importantly, you can never go wrong with a pair of good jeans and a unique t-shirt. It’s a safe style option and the go-to choice for most stay at home moms with a busy schedule.
T-shirts with fresh prints are always a cute and stylish choice. There are plenty of designs you can explore, from your favorite characters to abstract prints. One of the most popular trends among new moms are t-shirts with catchy phrases on them that reflect how they are actually feeling. It can be something funny, personalized, or some quote that really speaks to you. If you want to show how grateful you are that God rewarded you with a beautiful baby then a blessed mama shirt is the right choice for you!
When you become a mom, you will be running around with a baby, and that can be done only if you are wearing comfortable clothes because they will enable you to run errands or sit anywhere the situation requires.
As much as you want to, your old pairs of jeans will be one of those items that will be tough to get back into. But don’t worry, you need to look for other comfortable and trendy options to make you feel like a stylish mom.
For starters, you can get a bigger size of your favorite jeans, or do yourself a big favor and get yourself a pair of NYDJ jeans that are built to make moms feel comfortable in their own skin again. From skinny jeans, cropped styles and stretchy denim jeggings, NYDJ are your best bet.
Apart from this, you can also go for palazzo pants or soft pants. They are long trousers for women that are loose-fitting and have a wide-leg cut flaring from the waist. You can pair them up with t-shirts and fancy shirts, both, allowing you to switch from casual to formal. Our favorites are these linen-blend pants from Old Navy.
Stylish Shopper Bag
When it comes to bags, it’s not just your makeup and phone you are going to carry in there. You need a bag that will be able to carry the baby’s essentials, such as diapers and wipes, too.
When you ask experienced moms, they will tell you that when you take your baby outside, you need to carry tons of baby products with you because you never know when a diaper emergency may arise. Fortunately, there are many options from vibrant colors to colors available on the market that offer practicality and style at the same time.
The key is to find a bag that will meet the requirements of both your needs and taste.
The one color that you need to avoid when purchasing a stylish shopper bag is white, as it might get dirty very quickly. It is better to go with florals and patterns, and the bag should have multiple chambers inside to make it easier for you to find things. JuJuBe is our favorite brand for durable bags because they are washable and perfect for stylish moms.
Loose Floral Print Dresses
When you become a mom, your body goes through a few anatomical changes you might not have thought twice about before. You probably already know that the main change you’ll experience is breastfeeding, but it might get tricky and overwhelming with a fussy newborn on your hands. You will want to be prepared beforehand and have easy access because babies tend to get hungry in the most inopportune times and it can get messy. Luckily for you, this is where floral print dresses come in play.
Floral prints are a great way to cover up anything from breastmilk stains to baby slobber, but the most important thing about them is that they are extremely practical. Loose floral dresses make waking up and starting your day an enjoyable task because it’s easy as putting it on and donning some comfortable shoes to make you feel like a stylish mom. They are really a mom’s best friend – pretty and practical.
One thing to keep in mind when getting jewelry after becoming a mom is to keep it minimal. Not only does it look stylish, but it is also a practical option as it prevents the little ones from gripping and ripping it off.
You can also try going a different route if you don’t mind a few rips in your necklace. Use your necklaces as a makeshift toy for your baby. You can use a flashy one that you’re not that attached to, it will be a statement piece and a toy all in one place.
