When you come home with your newborn there isn’t a lot of time spent deciding what you wear. Leggings and a jumper often become the name of the day, while a chic messy bun does well for a quick upstyle. But if you feel like you’re up to venturing out, there are some ways you can look less like one of the pajama brigade and more like the gorgeous mum you are! Here are our style tips for new mums!
If you’re looking to add some quick pizazz to your outfit without squeezing into those jeans, make a statement with an accessory. Scarves are a great way of adding elegance and colour, while it might also be worth investing in a super chic nappy bag for when you and baby are out and about.
Blazing a trail
Blazers of any colour or shape instantly make your jeans and t-shirt combo look super sharp, and you can even get away wearing it out in the evening. Pair a dark blazer with some distressed denim and a sleek stiletto heel for an evening look, or keep it casual with some sleek runners.

Dry shampoo is your friend
When baths become a thing of the baths and showers become a luxury, dry shampoo instantly becomes your new best friend. Spritz it in before you go to bed to soak up all the excess oil, or use it in the morning for some quick styling power.
Pack a punch
Similar to your scarf, your purse is a great way to add some easy style to your outfit, without taking off your comfys!

Don the cape
Instead of your trusty old parka, why not go for a cape for your walks with baby? A cape adds a lovely silhouette for new mums especially and looks fabulous with knee-high boots and (our favourite!) leggings.
