Coming up for air after settling a new baby into the family and wondering what’s happening in the outside world? Reconnecting with your style as a new mum can be a confusing time. Once you've finished with your maternity and feeding clothes, you're desperate for a few new things that say 'I'm back'. We have the low down for you that will shake off your mumsy look and snap you back into style in know time at all.
Head into Gorman for an easy and quick-solution. It won’t disappoint. This is one designer that is on the money this summer, particularly for the mummy set. I stumbled across it in desperation to inject personality into my monochrome t-shirt draw. Through conversations at the park, I realised some of the other savvy mums had made the same discovery. Think fun tees in super cute prints of lobsters, pineapples, seagulls, stars, fresh stripes and spots. They have nailed the muscle tank and the all- important box shape shirt. There is a pant style for everyone, silk, crop, cullottes as well as super flattering shorts and their dresses are the business for highlighting the better bits. Shopping’s never been so quick and easy! Their oversized tote bags are perfect for all the gear you find yourself lugging around for the littlies and their swimsuits and platforms flatten the stomach and stretch the legs. It's seriously a one stop shop. I went in with the same excitement as my monochrome T-shirt draw and came out pleasantly surprised with endless coordinates and summer-ready!
Other items that are perfect for mums and playing a big role this season are shorts. They can be worn so many different ways, with playful tees, boxy print tops, rolled up, long sleeved shirts. Pair shorts with low or high top sneakers (another absolute must-have), platforms or summer sandals. It can be like swimsuit shopping, taking a while to find a flattering pair but once you do they’ll be the workhorse of your wardrobe through summer.
Mix, match and clash prints. Bird motifs, floral blooms, stripes, large graphics, polka dots. Play around with combinations. When mixing prints, keep like prints together or pair with a stripe (think of it as a neutral) and in the similar family of colours. Play around with the scale of the print. Let one dominate. If a novice just clash two prints to start with and keep the rest of the outfit and accessories simple.
Soft washed denim evokes an instant effortless cool.Try it in another form other than a denim jean like a rolled sleeved shirt, box tee, a loose fit pant, skirt, dress or cropped jacket.
Metallics are big. Worn in accessories they are particularly complimentary to the soft sorbet hues and candy colours around.
Sports Luxe is a flirty and fun look for the hot months not to mention the comfort factor. Pair cool sneakers with just about anything for casual chic with sports cred.
Monochrome. There’s something reassuring about clean, simple black-and-white, especially when it forms the palette of classically flattering cuts such as pencil skirts, wrap dresses and wide legged whimsical trousers. Best paired with assertive accessories.
Easy, breezy, dresses inspired by garden parties, spontaneous picnics at the beach and no-filter photos sunsets.
Invest some dollars in clothes post pregnancy. It's the least you can do for yourself and the people around you!
