Postpartum Style: 5 Key Pieces

Hi, friends! Let’s talk postpartum style. It’s tough, right? I’m in between my entire closet fitting me and most of my maternity clothes being too big (and really never wanting to see them again, anyway). 

Well, I’ve had 6 weeks to experiment with what works and what doesn’t, what makes me feel like ME again and what makes me feel like I want to hide until these extra pounds are gone. 

So today I’m sharing my 5 key pieces that will help get you through this awkward phase with style and comfort. Double win. 

I’d love to hear what you guys love for postpartum style. Let me know in the comments below! 

Thanks for stopping by!

Flowy Tunic (newer version here) | Denim 

When you’ve got some extra pounds that you’re not used to, flowy tops save the day. For fall, I’m all about the cozy tunic sweaters.  Free People tops are perfect for postpartum style. I have this one and absolutely LOVE it. 


Shirt (similar here) | Nursing tank | Leggings | Watch | Bracelet | Necklace 

Like the wrap, I rely on a good ol’ button down shirt to help me hide a multitude of sins. And, it looks stylish and polished so you can totally fool the rest of the world into thinking you’ve got it all together. 



Top (similar here) | Leggings | Shoes 

Life and style savers. Plain and simple. I have LIVED in these leggings this entire pregnancy, and I can’t recommend them enough. And, they’re easy on the wallet. You can’t go wrong.

I know. Maternity jeans. But they should also be called Postpartum jeans, because unless you’re a postpartum wonder, you’ll be in these babies for at least a month or 2 after you give birth. And guess what? THAT’S OK. And? NORMAL. 




Wrap | Tee (similar) | Leggings 

I’ve been living in this Ingrid & Isabel wrap. It’s perfect to throw over the leggings I’ve worn 4 days in a row, and to cover up my spit up stained tees that I don’t have time to wash yet. (Gross, I know.) It can double as a nursing cover and works to help keep baby girl cozy when I’m wearing her in the carrier. So, whether you’re pregnant or postpartum, I can’t recommend a wrap enough.

    Omg I love this post. I’m 35 weeks right now and can’t wait to get “my body” back. Good to know it’s okay not to get back to normal right after birth and how to still feel put together.

    These are such great outfits! My youngest is 3 months old and I’m still in that awkward phase!

    I’m obsessed with that flowy top!! I’m always looking for cute yet still comfortable tops..looks like I should make a trip to Free People soon 🙂

  • Leah Weber

    Love your style and love these clothing items! It’s so hard to find cute clothes after having a baby.

    Button down shirts and flow tops are “musts” for post partum style! I’ll be delivering in May so wraps are not an option for me, but dresses are a big win! Aline dresses, swing dresses, tent dresses, or empire waist dresses are essential pieces in my regular wardrobe and my post partum wardrobe 🙂
