Maternity Wear Ideas.
Until about 20 years ago the clothes on offer in high street maternity departments were limited to pinafore dresses and dungarees, luckily times have changed. From work wear to wedding outfits there are now countless options on offer to suit every style and occasion. The trouble is you are going to be this lovely changing shape for the next 9 months, and you don’t want to be spending hundred’s on a wardrobe you wont need again for a while.
You might be so excited about expecting that you can’t wait to shop the maternity section. Or you might be wondering how you can avoid spending too much on temporary clothes. Either way, starts with the essentials. In just a month or two, these will be your most liked pieces, from super-soft leggings and slip-ons to one-piece dresses, take time to think about what you’ll need to guarantee a cool and comfy pregnancy. Shoes I would suggest are very important to any pregnant lady. There are hundreds of good looking flats, from classic ballet shoes, loafers and sneakers to trendier slip on. Try neutral colours that can dress up even the most casual outfit.
You probably have a favourite pair of leggings already, if you consider buying the next size up you can feel the same while you’re pregnant. Look for fabric that stretches over your bump. Invest in a couple of quality maternity jeans, a style that will work with most tops in your wardrobe. Straight, slim, or skinny leg is flattering, keep it basic.
A high waisted skirt is a great way to feel dressed up, try basic black or a print then wear it with everything from a casual T-shirt to a buttoned up blouse, the same fabric you live in now but cut for your changing shape. Tunics let your tummy breath and there are lots of pretty options and ways to style them, ie over skinny jeans, tucked into a waisted skirt, or relaxed and loose. A long cardigan can make an outfit as well as keep you warm. Wear it over a tight dress or T-shirt and leggings to show off your bump while you create a slimming silhouette. Belt it for a more styled look or leave it open for an easy swing. Shop for a shift, swing or empire waist style dress, all can be worn with comfort and ease and best of all they can be worn long after pregnancy.
