Post-Pregnancy Style

Special Offer

Q: After having my second baby girl, I haven't been able to lose these extra 30 pounds. My old clothes still don't fit me, and I can't wear my maternity clothes any longer. What key pieces should I buy that will help me to look and feel good about myself while I work out to lose the extra weight?

A: Don't despair! Today there are so many great designers who are making chic clothes for fashionable new mommies. Try designer looks by Liz Lange and Pea in the Pod. Great tunic tops with fitted elastic-waist black pants will slim you and look stylish while you lose the weight. The key is to keep your clothes simple in color and in style. And look for items that are made in stretch fabrics with elastic details. Keep the colors neutral, like black, camel, navy and white.

To spruce yourself up, invest in sizeless items, like stylish accessories. A great tote bag that you carry in your hand or that sits right at the hip (no lower) will look chic and update any outfit. This is also a great time to find beautiful jewelry in gold or pearls, and low kitten-heel shoes and flats.
