Finding the Fashion Style That Works for You as a New Mum

*collaborative post*

As a new mum, it can often feel like your sense of style has gone out of the window. Gone are the days of dressing up, and now it feels like all you wear are pyjamas, leggings, and your husband’s biggest t-shirts. And, while there’s nothing wrong with being comfortable, if you are itching to get back to normal and feel like yourself again after going through so many huge physical changes that come with having a new baby, there’s no better way to start than finding a style that works well for you in this new chapter of your life.

Choose Well-Fitting Clothes

There’s absolutely nothing wrong with your body changing shape or size after having a baby; you’ve just created a whole new human being, and regardless of what the media tries to tell you, your body is fine. Don’t stress out about trying to get back into your pre-baby clothing; go out and treat yourself to a new wardrobe of items that fit you well as you are now. If you want to work out and lose weight, then do that in your own time and in the meantime, get some comfortable clothes that you love wearing and don’t put pressure on yourself to get back into the jeans you were wearing before you were pregnant.

Athleisure is Your Best Friend

Athleisure is the combination of fashion and sportswear, and mums are all over it. It could pretty much be designed with mums in mind as you want to stay stylish but be comfortable and have a practical outfit at the same time. Sneakers, leggings, oversized tees, and sweaters are all perfectly acceptable, and when you pair them with some of your usual fashion items, they can all come together to make a really nice, effortless outfit that most importantly, you’ll be comfortable in.

Treat Yourself to a Nice Bag

Small handbags are a thing of the past when you’ve got a new baby. And if being pregnant and giving birth isn’t enough to earn you the right to treat yourself, then what is? Why not treat yourself to a new designer handbag that’s big enough to hold your purse, the baby’s bottle, nappies, dummies, baby wipes, and everything else that becomes essential whenever you leave the house these days. A Jacquemus bag from SSENSE is a great choice; there are some fabulous tote bags in the range that are perfect for both practical use and for dressing up a nice outfit.

Stay True to Yourself

Many mums find that their style changes a little bit after having a new baby because now, practicality is top of the priority list. But, don’t feel like you have to change your style a lot or wear something different now that you are a mum. As a general rule, if something makes you feel good when you wear it and you enjoy wearing it, that matters a lot more than fashion trends or looking Insta-worthy. You do you and be true to yourself when it comes to your sense of style.

After having a baby, many mums find themselves changing their sense of style a little. If that sounds like you, keep these tips in mind to find a fashion style that works for you during this transformational time in your life.
