Fashion For Mums – Dressing For Your Body And Self Love

It is easy to think that once women become mothers they become less interested in certain things like fashion. In reality, having a baby leads to a change in your priorities and of course your body is bound to change. Learning how to evolve when it comes to dressing for the body you have and increasing your self-love will go a long way.


Being a mum is a 24/7 job in itself. It can get difficult to maintain your style. So what would a style-conscious mum do under such circumstances? We have put together a list of the most convenient ways for mums to style even when they are on a tight schedule and still feel stylish and comfortable!

1. Go for a Natural No-Makeup Look

Minimize your morning routine by going with your natural look. You could choose to forgo foundation or applying a full-face of makeup to save time every morning. Prepping to even out your skin with a good tinted moisturizer, a BB or CC cream can give you the fresh face you need. Then add a bit of concealer where required, a touch of mascara, loose powder and finally some lip gloss and you are ready to rock your day within five minutes. [Read: Beauty Routine]

2. Add interesting accessories

Great accessories can really take your basic look up many notches by jazzing up your otherwise simple look. So, invest in a great bag, several pairs of amazing shoes, statement jewellery, classy pair of frames etc. to add a trendy twist to your basic outfits.

When it comes to bags, opt for roomier picks that make it easy for you to carry around your everyday things as well as some of your baby’s main essentials like wipes and diapers. For breastfeeding moms, easy-access clothing and underwear will be a game-changer.

3.  Know your style and body Shape:

Nothing is more important than dressing in a way that pleases and represents you. If you know your style and understand your body you can make the fashion rules work for you.

4. Have more lasting high-quality items in your wardrobe

These vary for each style personality but; it’s better to always buy quality clothing that will not wear out within a short period of time.

Having a practical wardrobe doesn’t mean you have to be boring, and what you wear is a great way to show personality.

Remember that how you treat yourself, is important for teaching your children how to see themselves

So; dress with the confidence you want your children to have. If you are on a tight budget, you could always add items you long to have onto your birthday or Christmas wish list.

5. Keep current with the fashion trends

Make sure you have a few current items in your wardrobe. Only pick those trends that work for you! Rather than updating your whole wardrobe you can simply pick a few trends to add to your wardrobe.

Finally; Take Time to Feel Good on the Inside

Style may be an outward expression, but it starts on the inside. You re busy and have a lot to do. It can be hard to find time for yourself; but taking the time to feel good on the inside and managing the demands of your busy day; will help you feel more confident and beautiful.
