With your body going through many physical and emotional changes, especially right at the end of your pregnancy and right after your baby has made his or her grand arrival, it can be tough to feel like your pre-pregnancy self. From baubles to basics there are several small ways to effortlessly pull together a look that will start making you feel like your most stylish self.
Build Upon Basics

Who says you can't look cute and be comfortable at the same time? Now that your baby is here, you are busier than ever and incorporating style with comfort is essential. Investing in basic pieces such as leggings and jeans, neutral-hued tops that can be worn alone or paired with statement pieces, and footwear such as chic flats, a black or nude shoe with a slight wedge heel, and a pretty pair of sneakers, can make for an easier transition. Basics are great building pieces that allow room for layering and slimming and are sure to make you feel more confident when you and baby step out into the world.
High-Waisted Bottoms

Pants and leggings with a high waistline are a must during pregnancy and right after your little babe is here. Not only do they provide comfort, but they also define your bump as a baby-related bump and not just a few extra unwanted pounds. Black, high-waisted leggings and yoga pants are a favorite go-to for new mommies as they provide flexibility to combat all the things the day throws at you while giving you a put together, sleek look.
Stock up on Pieces that Elevate

By investing in pretty accessories and statement pieces, you are elevating your style during these transitional weeks. Think of them as a beautiful distraction! This could be a statement necklace, a stunning clutch or tote, or even a pretty outerwear piece such as a fashion-forward vest or blanket wrap. Any piece that makes you feel comfortable and confident are pieces you will want to keep in rotation during these few weeks.
Add a Touch of Glamour to Your Makeup Routine

Seal your signature style with a kiss by adding a lip color and a great set of lashes to your beauty routine. Your new tasks around the new addition to your family can leave you feeling tired and less-than-glam but adding a few elevated touches to your routine can make you feel more glamorous in a few short seconds
