The start of a new year is a chance to start over, and for most people, it means making a change to improve lifestyle or appearance. It's not surprising that losing weight and having more time to exercise is at the top of most New Year's resolutions lists every single year.
As a new parent, you probably don't feel like you have much time to take care of yourself—but with a few small tweaks you can be living your best life in 2020. Ditch those old yoga pants, and pick a few stylish pieces that are made for your busy lifestyle. Start the new year in style with these parent-friendly fashion trends.
The Pantone Color Institute announced that there are 12 colors that will be dominating the runway come spring/summer 2020. Two of these shades are wonderfully warm! Flame Scarlet is an orangey red, while Saffron mimics the color of the spice that it's named after. Meanwhile, another shade, Biscay Green, is reminiscent of the Mediterranean sea. Add these colors to your wardrobe for an instant upgrade. If you're wary about wearing a bright red dress, try an infinity scarf, or perhaps a red leather sling bag to add some color and pop.
Streetwear will continue to be popular in 2020, but don't hold onto that shapeless hoodie from your college years. Instead, go for a sweatshirt with interesting details, such as a piece that's cut a little closer to the body and has cute zippers. Don't be afraid to go for a more fitted look.
Pick a hoodie that actually fits you well, and you'll look slimmer and more put together in an instant. A hooded vest will also add some interest to your clothing—wear it over a long sleeved shirt, and you're ready for afterschool pick-up or coffee with friends. Pair it with a long dress and this single piece can be part of your signature look. Any item that has a hood makes it a good outerwear choice, so be on the lookout for jackets, sweaters or vests that feature this detail.
If the thought of wearing short shorts just weeks after giving birth gives you anxiety, don't fret. Style insiders are predicting that Bermuda shorts are going to be big in Spring 2020, so pick up a few pairs in neutral shades to add to your wardrobe. If you're returning to work and you've got a relaxed office dress code, you can wear Bermuda shorts instead of a skirt, and pair it with a jacket in the same shade. Finish the look with a delicate pair of ballerina flats or 1 to 2-inch heels for the most flattering look. You can also wear these shorts with a slouchy tee or a preppy button down for running errands—just switch out the flats or heels and wear a classic pair of white sneakers for a comfy yet fashionable look.
