Girlsourced Stylist Costina's Style Guide for

New Mums

Hello Girlsourced community!

We are back with another interesting blog after a long break and we are here to stay and help you with all your fashion woes.

So a few days back I was watching a Netflix show which revolved around a new mum and her day to day struggles. That struck a chord in me having also recently embarked on a journey of motherhood so I wanted to share with you some of the tricks I have been applying in my ‘new mum style’.

Sneakers are your best friends

Your stilettos are gonna miss you for a while because running everyday chores ain’t happening in those pointy heels. So replace them with SNEAKERS.

They have been back in game for a while now and serve both your fashion and comfort needs, so go get a pair if you haven’t already. Preferably chunky ones:)

Shirts or Wrap dresses

With motherhood comes a lot of things and one of those is breastfeeding. Mothers have to be ready for it anytime, anywhere. Kudos to all the mums!

That is why anything front open is of great help. Can be shirts, wrap or low cut dresses, they are not only ultra flattering on all body types, but make it easier for mums to feed the babies.

Bye Bye clutches, totes for the win

When you have to carry half of your house along with you, small bags don’t really help. That’s when totes come to the rescue. Diapers, milk bottles, wipes, everything inside this giant bag which you’d overlook earlier.

Whites aren’t staple anymore

We know you are missing your white shirts but trust us, staying away from anything white is what you wanna do now. Things are messier than usual and you will just end up ruining it with unalarmed spit ups and  throw ups.

Back to Basics

As a new mum the last thing you want to do is waste your time figuring out what to wear. That’s why having a go-to style recipe not only makes you feel stylish but also saves a lot of time. So always have a good pair of jeans, a shirt, a deep V-t shirt, a wrap cardigan or blazer that you can easily throw on for long strolls with your baby.

Big investments are a Big No-no

Try not to make big investments in clothing for at least 9 months after birth. Your body will go through changes during this time. It takes 9 months for the baby to grow, so it should take just as much for your body to let go of all the hormonal changes. For some it’s less, for some is more, so make sure you are being kind to yourself.

That’s it! We hope you got a little bit of insight. Remember ‘you don’t need to change, your wardrobe has to’ so take it one day at a time as you discover a new version of you through this journey.
