How To Rock Spring Chic Styles Postpartum

Giving birth is one of the greatest miracles of life, but afterwards you may be wondering how exactly to dress. Between the possible weight gain, busy schedule, and of course practicality, a mother’s wardrobe often becomes more planned out than put-on chic. If you’re curious how to dress after having baby, here are some of our top spring picks for all occasions.

At Home:

When it comes to how you dress at home, comfort is key. It’s important to stay clear of anything that could cause discomfort to your baby, including shirt buttons or zipper pockets on tops. Instead, focus on soft cottons, and simplistic tops that will be comfortable to both you and baby. Since there’s a good chance you’ll be feeding on the regular, loose fitted tops, or nursing wear, can make meal time a snap (literally) and leggings will become your new best friend.

Running Errands:

Between diaper changes, feedings and unpredictable nap times, the idea of going outside may seem foreign, but eventually running errands will be necessary. Luckily, cardigans can make a stylish outfit of your basics! This season’s we’re obsessing over patterned cardigans, which can make an outfit look put-together effortlessly, and bonus that the mixed print can discretely make spit-ups and milk stains less noticeable as well.

Put-Together Events

Whether you want to dress up for no reason at all, or you have something planned on the itinerary, it’s always a smart investment to have a few casual-chic outfits on hand. One style we’re loving at the moment is floral peplum tops! Perfect for showing off your figure in a flattering way, these springtime styles form to your arms and bust area for a classic look, while it flairs out at the belly to cover up pregnancy weight and add a little something extra for your ensemble.

Mom’s Night Out

You earned it! When it comes to a mom’s night out treat yourself with a fun, feminine look! For a modest approach, mix one of our seasonal floral tops, with a skirt, blazer and tights or go crazy by pairing the floral tops with jeans and a pair of heels. It’s easy to feel out of your comfort zone after giving birth, so taking small style steps after baby can help you feel comfortable and chic during the transition. Since beauty shines from the inside out, it’s important to feel your best, and not only will you look and feel beautiful, but these tops can be dressed up or down as well, so after your mom’s night out, you can just as easily wear these floral prints at home the next day as well!

Spring Style: Cardigans

017-2

February can be an interesting month for fashion choices. The weather can vary from overcast and cold, to beautiful and sunny; and certain days, it can choose to be a bit of everything depending on the hour. Luckily, if the weather decides to be different in your bedroom than on the drive over to get groceries, there’s an answer for these unpredictable days: cardigans.

Cardigans are a pregnancy blessing, not simply because they can easily be thrown on to make a jeans and tee day a bit more special, but the fact that they’re incredibly transitional as well. Whether you’re currently pregnant, nursing, or back to body before baby, cardigans can help you feel comfy and chic all year long.

012-3

Cardigans are a great way to transform your outfit from drab to fab, and during pregnancy is a great time to break out of your comfort zone and play with different patterns and prints. Animal printed cardigans are a great option to add a bit of texture to your outfit while still staying somewhat neutral, while tribal print cardigans can provide your look with attention for all the right reasons.

jessicacardigan

One aspect to keep in mind when finding the perfect maternity cardigan is length. It’s important for your cardigan to not only hit below your bump, but to hit slightly longer around mid-hip, to ensure that when completely buttoned up your cardigan won’t rise mid-belly. Our navy blue sparkle animal print cardigan for example, is the perfect length to be paired over jeans, but could equally look great with our fleece lined leggings or a white lace dress.

Whatever your personal style is, there’s perfect cardigans for you available at PinkBlushMaternity.com
