As a new mom you probably don’t have a lot of time to get glammed-up every day. Gone are the days where you could easily take two or three hours getting ready for a hot date. Nowadays, you are more likely to be found in the typical mom uniform of yoga pants and a comfy t-shirt instead of the sequin tank tops and trendy jeans you used to wear pre-baby. Of course, stilettos are out. Instead, high heels have been swapped for a pair of comfortable flats or sneakers which let you easily chase your little one around the park as they learn to walk and run.
However, just because you’re a new mom doesn’t mean that you have to give up having a sense of style. There are easy ways that you can create a new type of uniform for yourself which doesn’t involve yoga pants or sweats. Imagine yourself looking like a mom who has extra time to put herself together every morning even if the reality is that you only have five minutes every day. Below are style tips that any new mom can use to look put together and stylish without taking time away from their new bundle of joy.
The Perfect Accessory
Mother’s jewelry and other accessories can be used to keep any outfit from looking like you just rolled out of bed. If you’ve never tried wearing mother’s jewelry with your outfits it can add a sweet element and touch to basic jeans and a t-shirt. Most mother’s jewelry comes in sweet and simple shapes which means that it will match any style or outfit. Mother’s necklaces, bracelets, and rings can be personalized with your little one’s name and birth stone. Other accessories you can add to your outfit that will add an element of interest include scarves, beaded pony tail holders and hair clips, and a great designer diaper bag.
An Amazing Pair of Shoes
Great shoes can make or break an outfit. However, just because you’re no longer able to wear five inch stilettos during the day, or let’s face it even at night, it doesn’t mean that your shoes have to be dowdy and boring. Nowadays, there are just as many chic flat shoes in stores as there are heels. Whether you opt for classic ballet flats or bohemian style fringe sandals there are flats to fit your every fashion mood. Wear your most basic outfits with a pair of beautiful flat shoes, and you will never look like a mom who barely got four hours of sleep last night.
A Throw-it-on Dress
When you can’t be bothered to put together an entire outfit a dress can easily save the day. Like mother’s jewelry, dresses can make you look sweet and appropriate even on the days when you’re feeling less than fabulous. A dress is a standalone outfit. If you’re wearing a dress you don’t need to wear much more than your favorite mother’s jewelry and a great pair of shoes. You will easily look amazing.
A Unique and Trendy Jacket
Jackets are often ignored but they can actually turn a boring outfit into a trendy one quickly and easily. From motorcycle jackets to ladylike Chanel-inspired ones, putting on a jacket is an easy way to complete your outfit without taking extra time.
By sticking to the above tried and true formula you can end up looking like the moms who seem to have it all together. Jump into your flirty dress, slip on a pair of cute flats, grab a great jacket, and add a mother’s necklace to the entire outfit and you’re ready to leave the house with your baby in one arm and your style in another.
