Being a new mom is stressful enough with a range of things to remember. Look on point (and be “baby friendly”) with these top fashion tips…

Motherhood is definitely not for the feint-hearted! But although there’s a little one depending on your for practically everything, you can still look like your fabulous self with these hot fashion tips. Read on to learn more.

Be realistic

Don’t rush to fit into your pre-pregnancy outfits. Be patient as shedding off the extra post pregnancy weight might take some time. Instead opt for simple, figure-flattering styles such as leggings, tees and waterfall cardigans. You can also opt for layers for a fab look.

Keep things clean

Its not secret that your body changes after having a baby and this especially noticeable in those first few months post-partum. So steer clear of anything too clingy and opt for classic cuts and clean lines instead.Empire-line and peplum tops  and dresses will highlight your waistline is a stylish way while mid-rise and high-rise bottoms will support your post-preggy belly.

Say yes to soft

Babies like cuddling, so opt for soft fabrics such as chiffon, georgette and knits. This will also help hide post-partum swelling and ensure that your baby’s sensitive skin isn’t irritated. You should also avoid embellished detailing that can scratch your little one.

Beauty essentials for new moms

Add some oomph

A pair of fabulous shoes, a beautiful handbag or a stunning accessory can definitely take your look to new heights. But be practical, sky high stilettos may not be ideal when juggling the demands of motherhood.

You can opt for a colourful pair of pumps or chic kitten heels or wedges instead. When it comes to jewellery, studs are your best bet, as your little one may grab onto anything shiny that dangles. You can also experiment with simpler necklaces, bangles or scarves.
