I’ve been in a style rut since having kids. Before having kids I wore fashionable, tight, slightly revealing clothes (I was in my 20’s) with full hair and make up. Since my kids were born I’ve been rocking the mum ponytail, minimal make up, jeans and a hoody everywhere. I have no idea where to start as I don’t feel comfortable wearing my 20s clothes now that I’m mid 30s. I was wondering what other mums wear?

  • A lot of shopping centres offer style or shopping consultations – maybe you could do one of those? I wear simpler clothes since becoming a mum, and less makeup.

  • Same here – going back to work helped me

  • go online and look for inspiration. pair denim shorts with an oversized tee, that is my fav! try buying a plain dress and jazz it up with a gorgeous belt. you don’t have to try hard to look good, try lots of different things on and see what works for your body shape. i also love neutral colours but sometimes i buy something colourful and fun. be a little daring and rock it darl.

  • I wear what I am comfortable in and choose different styles depending on the occasion. Maybe play with styles and see what you like – what you feel comfortable wearing.
