Pregnancy is a very exciting time when you and your partner are preparing for the most demanding job – parenthood. But being pregnant also means you have to update the wardrobe, not just for baby gear, but for maternity outfits. All expecting moms know that dressing can be a major fashion challenge even for the moms-to-be that are following the latest fashion trends. That’s because the body is changing and most of the clothes that you love wearing won’t fit you anymore. Plus, you are dressing this body that seems totally foreign to you and you have no idea what’s going to look good on your new curves. We wanted to help you, so we rounded up some great tips on how to look stylish and attractive during the next nine months.
Wear Fitted T-shirts
You will be only pregnant a few times in your entire life, so why not to make the most of it with some fitted shirts? While most maternity stores offer stylish clothes, don’t forget to check out some online retailers that offer cute pregnancy-themed T-shirts with lovely slogans like “Made with love”, “We are hungry”, “I love my bump”, etc.
Wear Skinny Jeans
If you loved wearing your skinny jeans before you were pregnant, then why not to wear them now? You can find maternity pants that are stretchy and super comfy, and that will make you feel and look great.
Go for Color!
Don’t limit yourself to neutral shades, because bold colors are part of the modern maternity outfits. You will feel happier when you are wearing clothes that are not black or beige. If you can’t afford new clothes in bold colors, then you can stick to black dresses and shirts and embellish them with some cheerful accessories.
Don’t Buy Baggy Clothes
Hiding your baby bump in shapeless smock dresses, over-sized shirts and pants will make you look larger. When you are pregnant you should opt for fitting clothes – they will make you look slimmer and more confident, not fat. Be careful what you eat, there are some foods you should avoid in pregnancy too.
Find Some Comfy Flats
Wearing high heels, heeled boots or sandals while you are pregnant is a bad idea. Not only will your feet swell, but you will become more unstable as the baby bump grows. This doesn’t mean that you need to wear sneakers all the time. There are so many trendy and chic shoes that are at the same time comfortable and ideal for pregnant ladies. Flats that are comfy and harmonize with the rest of your maternity clothes are always a perfect choice.
Don’t Forget Your Nails and Hair
During the pregnancy, it is easy to forget about yourself. However, it is of a great importance to continue to feel good about your look. So, we recommend to find some time to get a pedicure, manicure or a new, flattering haircut – you will be amazing at how much better you feel about your body.
