The androgynous style has been in fashion a while, but it really seemed to explode in 2015. Just take Ruby Rose, for example — breakout star who who effortlessly blends leather hoodies and lipstick. If you don't already rock the gender-neutral look, you'll definitely want to dress androgynously after childbirth (or continue doing so if you're already on trend.) Yup, postpartum, when you need nursing pads, a nursing bra, and a shirt that allows you to quickly release a breast or two at any given moment when baby is hungry. Think layers, with a button-down shirt that allows for easy nursing, and boyfriend jeans that don’t squeeze a shape-shifting belly (or, if you’ve had a C-section, a sensitive midsection.)
The definition of androgynous fluctuates between straddling the line between masculine and feminine, or sticking to gender-neutral. This is where your own style and personal tastes come in. Your hubby’s shirt, early maternity jeans secured with a Bella Band, and a braided updo might be your ticket to postpartum fabulousness. Just make sure you think of your look post-birth — whether it’s androgynous or ultra-feminine — as something to have fun with, to flatter (but not hide) your miraculous body, which has just grown a baby over the past month and may have endured hardships such as a leaky bladder, engorged breasts, and constant sciatica. So while you’re embracing the androgynous look, make sure to also embrace the awesomeness of your body, stretch marks included.
