Fashion for Yourself

Fashion isn’t just about looking good for other people. In some muslim cultures, the women walk around all day outside of their homes fully covered in dark-fabric. What’s underneath that? Fabulous fashion and multi-colored jewelry. We do something similar to that. We dress ourselves in mommy-appropriate clothes, but you know that we all desperately still want to feel beautiful, and yes, even sexy to our husbands at times.

But it’s so hard to feel like that when we’ve packed on baby weight and assumed our battle wounds- stretch marks. That’s why I recommend going for the silky tank tops to top off our undergarments. The perfect look is a silky, v-neck, spaghetti-strap tank top to match a pair of boy short panties. Theses two pieces help to make you look slimmer, and even add an axra layer of fabric to, let’s face it, mask the little bit of extra ripples that we’re still trying to work off.

Tucking is Back

While the long, flowy shirts graciously agreed with our mommy bellies, the belt is back to be our friend again when tucking in our shirts. But be careful, because you want to stick with simple styles. Insider.com says: “No matter what we wear it for we should be very careful when choosing the style of the belt. As any other item of clothes belts have styles and are not versatile for the exception of classic designs.”

Buying two simple belts: a dark brown and black belt should do the trick for now and dress up any plain jane button up shirt. For that matter, a light blue button up would go great with the dark brown belt and some dark denim, skinny jeans. On a warm day, finish the look with a pair of ballerina flats. But it seems to be getting colder out, so a pair of flood boots will be comfy, warm, and will finish the sleek look.

Finally, accessorize with a scarf and jewel-studs for your ears. This will keep little grasping hands from pulling at your jewelry. A scarf is less appealing than a shiny, beady necklace.

This unified look will create the appearance of a thinner, slimmer figure.
