Being a mother, juggling with career and family with equal ease, seems like such a task doesn’t it? Yet countless women seem to take on their multi-tasking roles with infinite style and grace. And that includes dressing up perfectly, even with a kid or two in arm.
You may have nailed the nine months before the baby in great style, but managing home, work, and spending time with children is in a league of its own. Lucky for you, our style ideas for new mothers will keep you looking chic and fuss-free through these wonder years.
For Extra Post-Maternity Weight
Supermodel moms may come and go, but there’s no reason to work about those post-delivery kilos. A few style modifications are all it takes to pull off your new figure with grace. Stretchable fabrics are more forgiving than structured outfits which can make you look boxy. Pick outfits in monochromatic and jewel tones to add a sense of depth. Take style cues from Kate Middleton’s choice of dresses and tops that accentuate the mid-section.

For Getaways With Tiny Tots
Nail your look with basics. Leggings clubbed with tank tops and graphic tees are perfect for a venture to the park, on walks, or weekend getaways with your kids. Sneakers, trainers, and moccasins are purposeful shoes for a playful, comfy look. Make space for casual add-ons like a baseball cap or fedora hats, and stuff your essentials into chic oversized totes. The secret is in the extras—handbags, arm candies, shoes and yes, even a stroller.

For Evening Soirees
Dressing up for a party post running after your toddler the entire day can be tiring. Our suggestion—keep it simple but impactful. Narrow down a few outfits that you can throw on in a snap. Single pieces like a flowing maxi or shift dresses are easy going yet super stylish. Stick to minimal embellishments or your toddler may get fidgety with the jewels and pick ballerinas for a mix of comfort and style.

Revel in these precious moments with grace and remember to take a lot of pictures with your little one(s). Years later, you will look back and smile at your early years with your baby as much as your impeccable style.
