Can’t Figure Out What To Wear? Read This Article

If you're a new mom, you know that pregnancy and childbirth really changes your body. And you may find that so many of those clothes that fit you before baby just don't work anymore. The good news is, it's still possible to look cute and stylish when you're a mom...it just may require a few tweaks in your wardrobe. Here's what to invest in when you can't figure out what to wear. 

Pick the right combo of loose and tight

You've probably seen those photos of supermodels dressed in light, flowy dresses, tops, and pants. While this looks great on the runway, it's not really flattering in real life. For most of us, it's best to strike a balance between tight and loose. The rules are simple: if you're wearing a tight top, pair it with a loose bottom (and vice versa). Just make sure that your top and bottom complement each other. If you are wearing a loose t-shirt try pairing it with tight jeans. Or if you are wearing a fitted top you can wear a wide leg pants or a flared skirt. It doesn't need to be fancy! Even simple cotton basics—like t-shirts and skirt—can elevate everyday style. Look beyond yoga pants for staples that are comfortable, cute, and washable. 

Think about pattern

Mixing patterns can be a fun way to add a little interest to your everyday ensemble! You can always embrace stripes, checks, floral or gingham. Look to our covers if you need some inspiration! Opt for patterns that have the same color palettes or color palettes that match each other to avoid clashing.

Layer Up

If you're wearing something plain, layering can step up the game. Layer a cardigan over a basic t-shirt and your outfit has a little more interest (with so little effort!). Neutral shades go well with almost everything and can transition from winter to spring to summer and back again!

Accessories Elevate everything

Accessories can always help in upgrading even the simplest outfit. Adding a scarf or statement necklace is the best way to amp up the look of your outfit. If you own a Covered Goods®, think beyond using it just as a nursing cover! Our covers look beautiful as an infinity scarf and can provide the perfect pop of color to any basic outfit. Plus, you'll be all set for and surprises life with baby throws at you 😘.

Basics Worth Investing In

The little black dress, a well fitted white shirt, high waist denim—these are wardrobe essentials that will work for so many different occasions. While a white shirt paired with a metallic skirt can be a perfect party outfit, put it with jeans for an easy everyday look (hint: post-baby, a high waisted style will work best).  So many of us have closets stuffed with clothes we barely ever wear. Now's the time to really evaluate what fits, what's practical, and what needs to go. Keep the basics you can mix and match, and add pieces that work for your style and life. 

How has your style changed post-baby? We'd love to hear your best tips for looking great!
