I think pregnancy dressing is about learning to mix and match your current wardrobe with some key maternity pieces. Anything stretchy is your friend! And you don’t have to spend a fortune. I updated my wardrobe with some relatively inexpensive maternity pieces from ASOS while I was pregnant with Sophia. If you’re currently trying to work with a bump and are looking for a little style inspiration, look no further than the following women. They managed to accommodate a burgeoning pregnancy belly but still keep their style game strong.
Blake Lively rocks boho chic in a printed poncho, simple black dress and boots. Learn to layer more voluminous pieces with something fitted to accommodate your bump.
Model Coco Rocha shows that a fitted dress in a great print is a go-to staple during pregnancy.
What did I say about stretchy fabric being your friend? Gisele looks easy breezy in a simple stretchy black dress.
Kate Middleton is a great example of how to do workwear during a pregnancy. Simple shift dresses and modest pumps are a great understated look.
When dressing with a bump during winter, layer a few loose pieces and work it back with a jacket you already own. Consider purchasing a pair of maternity jeans as they are a great casual staple.
Victoria Beckham is probably the only woman on the planet who can make walking around in sky high stilettos while pregnant look oh so easy! While you don’t have to follow her footwear lead, do take on board the fact Beckham has managed to take a simple loose white tee and dress it up with a few statement accessories and a chic blazer. The best bit is a white tee is the kind of basic that can easily transition into your post-pregnancy wardrobe.
Style icon Miroslava Duma was all about fitted dresses, cosy cardis and statement coats during her second pregnancy. If you don’t want to wear heels you could easily work back an outfit like this with a pair of ballet flats.
