One of the most amazing things has just happened to you: You’ve become a father. You’re amazed by this little human being who you created and love so much.
These little lovable aliens come into the world, steal your heart, and you’re never quite the same again. The days of freedom are gone. You can no longer go out at a moments notice to grab a drink with the guys, see a film, or go to a restaurant, and time to yourself is limited, nay non existent, at least until your little one gets a bit older.
It isn’t just your free time that is impacted, either. The same changes also occur with your style, mainly because you have far less time and energy to invest in your look. One of the last things on your mind, at least for a while, is “what should I wear today that makes me look good?”
1. You dress for function, not fashion
Unless you are lucky enough to be able to take paternity leave (and most likely even then), you will definitely be wearing clothing as a means of function: something comfortable that will be able to sustain spit up and throw up and whatever other bodily functions the baby cannot control.
There are exceptions to this rule, however. If you can sneak a night away from your crying, screaming infant bundle of joy to spend some time with your significant other, then opt for fashion, not function. When the opportunity arises, take it — dress up!
2. Your old clothes look different, almost unwearable
