Laura Russell from Style Consultancy Satisfashion shares her tips on how to look as well-dressed as your baby is!
After styling clients for over 12 years, I have dealt a lot with the issue of overcoming the Mum Frump. Many women find that after having a baby they lose their sense of individual style. Much of this is obviously to do with the massive change that has happened in your life (you now own a baby!) The low-cut tops, or short skirts that once were a wardrobe staple, just don’t work in your lifestyle anymore. You find yourself clueless, thinking, ‘Well – what can I wear now?’
I promise you, you do have a clue, you are just in one of those style transition periods, and that’s ok because your style evolves throughout your life. The majority of us will have spent 12 months or more in anything loose or stretchy enough to cover the bump, then after baby was born our bodies seemed alien to us, so we threw on anything, because looking stylish or fashionable wasn’t the priority. But when you get to the point of thinking you’re in a Mum Frump, and it is starting to affect your confidence, it’s the perfect time to start addressing it. It means you have noticed it, so you are en route to becoming the stylish mum you always dreamed of being and making yourself a priority again.
My Satisfashion steps to avoid the Mum Frump will help you to start thinking about your current style. It will also hopefully inspire you to create your wardrobe to be a haven for all things quick and easy to wear, whilst maintaining ultimate style always. Being a Mum doesn’t have to be frumpy!
