Pregnant now with my second child, my body seems to be changing even more dramatically than during my first pregnancy. Although I’ll do my best to get back in shape, I also know that some of these changes are permanent. With each baby I seem to be losing my slim teenage shape (OK, it’s long gone by this point) and shifting into something more womanly. There are pros and cons to this body transformation. One challenging yet exciting aspect of a changing figure is getting to restructure my style. Completely different cuts and styles are flattering now — Tunics, for instance.
A well-cut tunic looks amazing on a curvier figure, and they are also a comfortable and stylish option for new mamas, a perfect staple for pregnancy and beyond. I especially like those with a lower cut, accentuating new curves and drawing the eye to your best features. A stretchy or button-down neckline can even allow for easy breastfeeding without compromising on style. Their lightweight style is perfect for spring/summer, and for helping new moms (and anyone else!) look effortlessly put-together.
I love a simple tunic, with or without a skinny belt, layered over leggings or a relaxed skinny jean. Throw your hair up into an easy top knot and dress the look up or down with cute sneakers, flats, or a pair of boots. For me, a big pair of gold hoop earrings would complete this look!
