During your pregnancy, your body will go though some amazing changes, and you’ll start to realize your wardrobe needs an update, too. So if you’re standing in your closet, wondering what you are going to wear for the next nine months, don’t panic. There are so many trends right now that make it easy to keep your bump looking super chic but still be super comfortable.
Here are six pregnancy style tips for your maternity wardrobe that will make getting dressed during these nine months a lot easier.
Grab Some Leggings
Even if you’re a firm believer that leggings aren’t pants, it’s time to jump on board the legging trend. With leggings, you’ll be able to create a casual look or dress them up for work, and a few pairs will last your entire pregnancy and beyond. But the best part is they are so comfortable. Try on a few pairs and you will be a believer. With so many styles and patterns to choose from, just be sure the leggings are lined so that as they begin to stretch, they don’t become see-through.
Say Yes to the Button-down Shirt
One cute style that is working for ladies with and without a bump is wearing a soft denim button-down shirt paired with cute leggings, denim, or skirts. Grabbing a few button-down shirts with simple patterns (or chambray) is the perfect way cover your bump as it grows. Roll up the sleeves and add a few pieces of jewelry to dress it up, or put a maternity tank under and pair it with maternity jeans for a cute daytime look.
Stock Up on Flats
During your pregnancy, your feet will be begging you to step out of the high heels and boots and into something more comfortable. With so many adorable flats, ballet slippers and slip-on shoes styles, your feet will be comfy and on-trend. Just be sure that you’re buying your shoes at the end of the day when your feet are at their biggest. This way you’ll have a little extra room if your feet swell during your pregnancy.
Throw on a Belt
While you’ll probably skip wearing a belt around your waist during your pregnancy, there’s no need to ditch the belt for nine months. Wear the belt above your bump to accentuate your figure when you’re wearing maxi dresses and tunics. A cute belt can give your whole outfit a completely different look.
Dresses for Days
Stocking up on comfortable and stylish dresses will help you put together easy looks that you feel good wearing during your entire pregnancy. If you find a great cotton dress, grab it in a few colors. Often you can wear the dresses once the baby comes too.
Moms-to-be can turn a lot of regular clothes fit into their maternity fashion, but if you’re going to invest money in a few maternity pieces, make sure it’s jeans. There are so many cute denim styles to choose from and you can decide if you like the jeans that go below your belly or have a panel that grows will you. So when it’s time to say goodbye to your favorite skinny jeans, you’ll love the new pair that will take their place for a few months.
