Sometimes trying to dress an ever-expanding baby bump can seem like a very daunting task, but luckily with a few maternity fashion tips there’s no reason why you can’t be stylish while pregnant. Here are a few tips for all you moms-to-be to get you on your way.
5 Quick Maternity Fashion Tips
Avoid wearing clothes that are too big or that have too much volume. It sometimes can be hard to resist the urge of hiding in a large t-shirt or baggy pants, but contrary to belief, this is only going to make you appear larger than you really are. Instead, look for clothes that are form fitting and that will hug your curves. A maxi dress is a great choice for a casual, yet chic look.
Go for bold colors. Instead of going straight for black, why not add some color to your wardrobe—remember this is a happy time. You’ve probably heard time and time again how pregnancy can make you look glowing, so embrace it, and find a color that will flatter your skin tone. Jennifer Lopez is a great example of embracing color while pregnant.
Shoes are Key. No outfit is complete without the right shoes, but of course we want them to be comfortable as well. For a pair that is part comfort as well as style, look for a pair of ballet flats with embellishments or a bright color such as yellow, to make your outfit pop. For a high-heeled option, look for a wedged heel. A wedge is a great alternative and provides more stability than a regular heel. As the weather begins to cool down, a slouchy boot will also do the trick.
Accessorize. Whether it’s a statement necklace or bangles or perhaps some dangling earrings, accessories are a must while your pregnant. The great thing about accessories is no matter how much your belly grows, accessories are never going to “not fit.” A great statement necklace as mentioned, will also help to distract the attention away from the belly and draw the eye upwards to your face. Just remember to go for one BIG accessory at a time.
Add a Blazer for a polished look. A blazer or jacket is definitely a must-have in every wardrobe. Not only will it make you look polished and put-together, but it’s also a great layering piece. Pair it up with some jeans or a printed dress for a fun chic look.
Overall, just remember your pregnancy will only last for a few months and will go by in no time. So embrace this very important time in your life and don’t let style get in the way.
