If you are a new mom who has been staying at home taking care of your baby for at least 6 months and more, you might find it hard to get back to the outside world.
There are many reasons for the uneasiness but the most common one is that you don’t feel really confident in what you are wearing and feel like you look a bit “out of date”.
If you think that then don’t worry much, you are just like thousands of mom all over the world who struggle to find the most decent things in their wardrobe to wear.
For most of the moms, they don’t have time to shop around for new clothes that fit their new sizes. Furthermore, they tend to trade fashion for comfort.
However, when you decide to become stylish again, you need to spend some of your time to change your old items for new one. And in some of the cases, you need to get rid of your comfortable but oddly looking maternity sweatpants for something more fashionable.
I will help you to pick up and change your clothing quicker by pointing out some of the items that you need to change the most and then help you to pick other better ones.
Here is the list of what you need to change to become a more stylish mom:
1/ Your Old Sneakers That You Wear Every Time
I need to admit that wearing a pair of running sneakers makes you feel really comfortable. However, I have seen many moms wearing sneakers all the time with all kinds of clothes and outlook.
It is fine if you wear your sneakers to the gyms and for running. However, you should not wear them to come to your friends’ parties or to any semi-formal events. Also don’t wear them if you want to wear dresses or jumpsuits.
Luckily, you don’t have to trade comfort for fashion in this case. There are many other comfortable substitutes for a pair of sneakers such as flip-flops or flat ballerina shoes. There is a wide selection for you to choose from as well.
Here is another tip about choosing sizes for your: your feet tend to get bigger in sides but the length of your feet often doesn’t change. Therefore, don’t go for a bigger size but the wide option of the same size instead.
2/ Your Diaper Bag
Most of the diaper bags are big and have to style at all. In fact you don’t need to own a diaper bag to bring diapers along with you.
All you need to do is having a large sized normal bag and a Ziploc to separate diapers with other items in your bags.
4/ Your Old Underwear
You may pay a lot of attention to your outerwear but forget about these things. Your bras and panties now usually don’t fit the new sizes of your boobs and hips which have grown a lot for now.
It is very important to have a pair of underwear that fits your body perfectly. It could enhance your shape and make your outer clothing much more stylish.
My recommendation is to buy matching underwear. Furthermore, to look for comfort, find materials which are stretchable and breathable.
5/ Sweatshirts, Sweatpants And Hoodies
These items are very comfortable to wear and you might think that they can hide your body shape easily.
While it is true that they are comfortable to wear, they do not help your shape at all. In fact, big size clothing will make you look bigger and chubbier.
Also these clothes do look quite natural but they give you a look of an untidy mom who is willing to wear anything she could find.
It is better if you can change to other alternative options. You can still feel warm and comfortable if you wear a jacket. Furthermore, you can wear trousers which fit your size. With appropriate materials, they will also make you feel comfortable.
Here are some of the most common items moms usually go easy with and ignore about their fashion sense to trade for comfort. The list includes a pair of sneakers, a diaper big, some old bras and panties as well as sweatshirts and sweatpants. There are many other items such as the maternity clothes and elastic leggings.
However, in order to become stylish, you need to put away these items and search for more fashionable but still comfortable alternatives.
I hope with my guide, you can easily spot what you have done wrong with your current outfits and fix them soon. You will later find out that you can both look classy and feel comfortable at the same time.
