Style After Baby

As a Personal Stylist, I have worked with a lot of new Moms. Women who were already into fashion, trends, and style but after having a baby, they somehow felt lost. They no longer had the time to shop, let alone research what the season’s hottest trends were. Combine that with a new body to deal with, and many had reserved themselves to a life of yoga pants and oversized hoodies. It doesn't have to be that way though!

Today's post is dedicated to that time period (2-3 months) after giving birth when your body isn't yet back to your pre pregnancy shape, but you are ready to get out of your sweats, and feel stylish again. Here, my top must haves for that time period.

Body skimming pieces are key at this point - nothing too tight or too flowy. Think empire waisted tops and dresses with flat fronts, not gathers. Slightly A-line styles work too. These styles will help cover your post baby belly without adding extra bulk.

Avoid tops that are cut too high like turtlenecks and crew necks. You want to create the illusion of a longer and leaner line right now, so you are best sticking with V-necks or scoop necks. Open cardigans will help create the same elongating effect.

Necklaces, scarves, earrings, and embellished necklines will bring the eye up and away from your post baby belly. And never underestimate the power of any accessory (bangles, chunky cocktails rings, etc) to make a basic outfit come alive.
