I’m loving all the grown up stripes in the shops at the moment and couldn’t resist these gorgeous mini versions. Whether you choose classic blue, white and red or funky rainbow brights, these stripes are stylish for boys or girls (not to mention a welcome break from all that pink!)

Spring Trends

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedintumblrmail

It’s hard to feel springlike when it’s all grey and rainy outside and the weather is more suited to chunky knits than pretty dresses. The sun is shining today so I’ve decided to take the plunge – here is the MilkChic pick of the spring fashion that works for breastfeeding mums!

70s:

The 1970s is influencing all the trends this season, with pretty prints and florals for daytime and washed out denim and crochet details all over the place. At night, think Studio 54, with jewel and neon colours, dramatic long lines and lots of glitz!

Spring Florals:

Easy to wear country garden florals are everywhere. If you’re not ready for full on girlie, pick tailored shapes and graphic florals like this shirt dress (£44.90 at dress-for-less) or clash your prints for a more edgy take.

Brights:

A splash of colour is a great way to update your look this season and any shade goes as long as it’s bright. If you’re not feeling brave enough to colour block, pick some vibrant accessories to get the look – the gorgeous Storksak Jess changing bag is perfect to brighten any day.

Romantic Nudes:

If all of these bright colours and prints aren’t quite your scene, try a sophisticated palette of nudes – there is something to suit all skin tones, from caramel to blush, and it looks great teamed with black. Make sure it’s machine washable though, as pale colours aren’t always baby friendly!

Pure White:

This probably isn’t the most practical trend for mums with young babies – I am someone who can get a white top filthy in minutes even without a toddler throwing Weetabix at me! Having said that, it looks great and if you pick easy to wash fabrics like cottons, at least you know you can throw them in with the baby vests and they won’t wreck.

Stripes:

Simple stripes always look great. This season, the trend is for wide stripes and striking colour combinations. I love the heart shaped GUMIGEMâ„¢Teething Necklace from MamaJewels – practical and on trend!

I was amused to see this Warehouse Two Layer T-shirt Dress in the Marie Claire Fashion “25 Best Dresses to Wear Now”.

Warehouse 2 Layer dress in Marie ClaireThe “two layer” look is a classic in breastfeeding tops. It’s never been a favourite style of mine as I always felt it screamed nursing, which is why they aren’t featured too heavily on MilkChic, but maybe it’s time I reconsidered…

Here are a few nursing tops and dresses that were way ahead of this particular fashion curve!
