United Colors of Benetton hit the nail on the head when they say “There are times when we would like to be stylish, but without wearing anything excessive or eccentric.”. I couldn’t agree more. Style isn’t about piling on the accessories, wearing only what’s bang on trend and whatever shape happens to be in that season. Yes, keeping up with what’s now is never a bad thing but for every day wear when some (read: most) days can be a challenge to get your little one dressed let alone yourself too, we need something simple which needs no brain power to put together and makes us feel less like a tired mummy and more like a stylish woman!
Benetton brought together these four plain tops to take you from day to evening (if you get a night off!), all in lightweight fabrics, perfect for keeping cool now and layering over long sleeve tees or polo necks later. The difference is that they’re not your basic fitted stretch tees, instead they are fluid jersey which drapes to cover your lumps and bumps and they’re cut in interesting shapes to add interest without being fussy.
Whichever stage of mum-hood you’re at these should work for you. Ideal for the early stage of pregnancy when you’re growing but don’t want to share your news yet, just perfect for skimming your post-baby tum and a useful addition for your nursing wardrobe to lift up over baby or un-button to feed.
Team the longer styles with leggings for sofa-to-street wear and add a slouchy cardigan when it’s chilly. For a smarter look choose slim jeans and your trusty blazer to add structure to the look and if you’ve time, add a chunky necklace or scarf to complete your outfit.
The only catch is that you can’t yet shop online at Benetton but watch this space as we’re assured their online shop is launching soon!
