Hope pregnancy is treating you girls well. It can be quite challenging given the changes that your body goes through during this phase. But fear not, as you can still be stylish and comfortable at the same time with these simple outfit ideas to make you look like one sexy mama-to-be! Take a peek at these must-have pieces to make pregnancy fun. I have included my own pictures, hope you all will like them.
1. The Statement Style
Style your baby bump in this casual yet relaxed outfit. One of the first things to buy at this time is the right pair of leggings that fits good and will stretch as your bump grows. Throw on a knit shrug or a blazer for a more formal look, pair with a cami or t-shirt underneath, and you are done! You can also simply take this look further by pairing the leggings with some flowy cotton tunics and off shoulder tops. This maternity outfit not only looks well put together, but is also comfortable at the same time. Definitely a win-win.
You don’t have to spend your nine months in oversized t-shirts and baggy sweatpants. Yes, you heard it right. You can still have your sense of style and feel confident in your new body. Maxi, midi, A-line, printed, pastels, you name it and they will work. Dresses during this phase will be your go-to outfit. Casual outings can be relaxing in cotton maxis or mid length sun dresses.
For a more formal look, experiment with dresses that have interesting detailing like lace, color-blocking and also prints. Yes prints like stripes, chevron, animal, floral can help in camouflaging the bump specially in pictures.
3. Asymmetrical Hemlines
Also known as the “high-low” style, this trend is very much in these days. Clothes that are short in the front and long in the back will not be tight around the belly area, giving you room to breathe and will effortlessly adjust to later stages of pregnancy and motherhood. Vibrant hues and bold prints will make you stand out in style. Don’t be afraid of sporting the latest trends with a bit of tweaking.
4. Indian Party Outfits
Dressing up the bump for a wedding may scare you given the weight of Indian outfits. Ditch the anarkalis if you find them too bulky for trendy and roomy Kaftans. Take it from the horse’s mouth, they are a lifesaver when it comes to being pregnancy chic. Lightweight and pretty, you can have a wide variety to choose from. Most of them come with a drawstring under the chest making them grow along with your belly. Invest in summery kaftan tunics and pair them with must-have leggings or wear it just as a dress, they will make you look every bit of a sassy mom-to-be!
Things to Avoid:
• Chunky and overweight dresses
• Synthetic fabrics
• Fitted tops and lowers that hug the belly and have button (as in jeans/trousers) as they cause irritation, making the area itchy
• Oversized clothes that only fit around the belly and not in any other part of the body
Things to Look For:
• Pieces that will come in use till the end of pregnancy and not just till first or second trimester
• Solid colors in all shades that complement you – deep burgundy, navy, purples to pastels; team these up with patterns
• Soothing fabrics and flowy cuts
• Comfortable, non-slip footwear to complete every look
