As a busy mom the last thing you’re often thinking of is style. Sometimes it’s just better to go against the grain and wear the comfy pants and burp cloth for your own sanity…not to mention when it happens to be laundry day. However, when going out in public, we all like to at least look like we have it together.

With spring weather already happening around us, it’s time to incorporate some color and new trends into your wardrobe that even the newest mom on the block will be happy to try.

Trend #1: Mint is the color of the season and it looks great on EVERY skin tone. Incorporate this color in easy ways this season by painting your toenails with it or even just sporting a simple t-shirt. Novelty Stripe Maxi Dress, $69, at

Trend #2: Silky wide-leg pants are on trend and they forgive every thigh lump and bump after having babies. Go for a solid color or a simple print for the best look. Hive & Honey Wide Leg Printed Pant, $49, at

Trend #3: The feminine peplum silhouette is hot right now and it hides your “baby belly” and creates the illusion of a perfect hourglass figure. For the best look, try a peplum skirt or top and take in all the compliments you’ll get! Striped Peplum Top, $68, at

Trend #4: Blue and green jewelry is in for the season and is an easy update to add for the spring. While babies love to pull on necklaces and earrings, try a bracelet for an instant style update. Moschitto Designs Filigree Cuff, $38, at

Trend #5: Last season’s colorblock trend is still HOT and it looks great on everything from shoes to bags to dresses. This is a trend that is sure to last so it’s worth investing in one piece. Colorblock Button Front Cardigan, $54.95, at
