It can be simple to lose your sense of personal style when you become a mother because of all the changes your body and lifestyle go through. Former fashionistas may even realise that their look has fallen down the list of priorities or is becoming drastically less sustainable. If you’re not interested, it makes no difference at all, but if you discover that losing your sense of personal style impacts your self-esteem and confidence, it’s time to have some fun. Small changes can have a big impact on how you feel and look.
In this blog post, you’ll find the best guide on how new mothers like you can identify (or rediscover) a personal style.
- Come To Terms With Your New Body
It serves no purpose to wait around in shabby leggings while your body gradually returns to its pre-baby state. Absolutely, make the effort to maintain your health and fitness, but bear in mind that your body may have changed since becoming a mother, and that you should dress accordingly: You’ll begin to feel more like yourself once you stop viewing your new body as a temporary imposition and begin accepting it. Avoid trying to fit into oversized clothing or buying it. Understanding your shape and colour can help you appear your best. You should also wear clothes that make you feel empowered, including any accessories you’ve been meaning to try out for the first time.
Don’t bury yourself under huge sweatshirts and worn-out pregnant clothing; instead, show off the parts you love and skim over the parts you wish to hide. Additionally, you may use Pinterest to approximately plan out what you’re searching for before you go shopping, which will cut down on the time it takes you to buy new garments.
- Set A Seasonal Uniform For Yourself
Getting dressed or picking an outfit can become much less stressful if you have a smaller wardrobe of things you genuinely enjoy and know how to wear. If in doubt, keep it straightforward with some tried-and-true classics:
- Shirts with buttons down (in a design, so any spills are hidden!)
- Jeans or jeggings with a higher waist
- Jersey halter tops (super comfy, but look stylish and safe for bending down to pick children and spillages off the floor)
- Cardigans (throw over the top of anything, but more flattering than a hoodie)
- Casual and reasonably priced blazer
- Your go-to hats or any other headwear that keeps your locks in place and don’t put too much tension or pressure on your head throughout the day
- Don’t Feel Guilty About Investing In Yourself
You don’t need to spend a fortune to look fantastic. Body confidence and self-worth concerns are closely related to how we dress. Even though you have a functional wardrobe, you don’t have to be uninteresting because what you wear is a terrific way to express your personality. Dress with the confidence you want your children to have in mind, as how you treat yourself has a big impact on how they learn to see themselves. You may always put stuff you want on your birthday or Christmas wish list if money is tight.
