Being pregnant doesn’t mean that you have to ditch your skinny jeans and low-cut dresses out your wardrobe. And it certainly doesn’t have to be all about maxi dresses, loose tops, and baggy jeans. But we agree having a few of those wouldn’t hurt though! With all the raging hormones and swollen ankles and your growing bump, how can you remain stylish yet comfy? If you wish to not forgo your style quotient while expecting but still feel comfortable, this is the post for you. We can help you put together a maternity wardrobe that will help you stay stylish during your pregnancy months.
Jeans Could Be Your Best Friend
You could be in the first trimester or the second. Chances are that you would have grown out of our old pair of jeans. Buy a pair or two of jeans that have an elastic waist. With a super flexible waist on them, you can wear it for longer. You can go for a neutral color if you’d like and pair it with a stylish blouse or a boxy t-shirt for a more casual look. You can also pair it with a nice jacket or a camel coat for a layered look. Put on your favorite sneakers and sunglasses, and you’re good to go.
Jumpsuits All The Way
If you thought that jumpsuits are not for pregnancy, you are so wrong! It’s a great maternity pick for days when you don’t have the mood or the energy to put together an outfit when stepping out. You can pair it with any tee inside and you’re good to go. You can also dress up or dress down with jumpsuits. It looks great with flats and sneakers. This way you can choose to be stylish yet remain comfy. I know what you might be thinking – “what about when I have to pee?” Isn’t it easier when all you have to do is pull all the way down without much hassle of unzipping or unbuttoning? But being half-naked, of course – LOL!
Layering is a great way to keep things stylish while also showing your baby bump. You can wear a cardigan or blazer. Whether you are wearing a bodycon or jeans and a T-shirt, layering it with a jacket or a blazer can give your outfit a more bold look. It also adds some structure to the whole attire. Also, pregnancy and changing hormones can sometimes make women feel cold. So why not layer up?
Why hide behind those loose dresses when you have curves to flaunt? Wear dresses that hug your body at all the right places. Choose fabrics that stretch and accentuates your curves. You can go for sweater dresses or bodycon. Layer it with a camel coat or a duster if you’d like.
Dresses with empire waistline are a great way to dress up when you are pregnant. It fits tight just below the bust and flows freely to accommodate your baby bump. You can choose maxi dresses with an empire waistline for a breezy look. Pair it with your favorite slip-ons and a denim jacket with cool shades. Don’t you feel like a celebrity already?
Show Some Skin
You don’t have to dress like a nun just because you have put on some weight and a showing belly. Dress as sexy as you want. Pregnancy isn’t about covering up, but embracing everything in all its glory. So why not show some legs or midriff if you are comfortable with it!
Color Your Wardrobe
Don’t just stick to black and neutral tones, adding some color to your outfit can elevate your mood. Adding a bit of rainbow to your closet can be fun. If you are all for black, that’s fine too. But don’t hold yourself back just because you are pregnant. Sporting bright yellow and red tones are anything but boring.
You can always stay stylish – bump or no bump. If you are somebody who likes wearing jeans and a T-shirt all the time, you can stick to it throughout your pregnancy. Maternity fashion is all about what makes you feel good. And if you are a bodycon person, you go girl! What’s your favorite maternity pick? Do let us know in the comment section below.
