One of my darling girlfriends just broke some exciting news that she’s having her first baby!!! I just know she is going to be so beautiful pregnant!
Her only complain was that I wasn’t around to take her shopping, so I promised to blog about some funky fashion tips especially for her!
So here goes:
With everything changing around you, from your body to your lifestyle, the one thing you can stay true to is your personal style. So what if you have a little person growing inside you, you can learn to dress your little bump while being true to yourself.
The Boho chic:
Stay cool with maxi and those ever so cool peasant dresses that you can just throw on the days you feel bloated. Some oversized jewellery and a hat to beat the heat (or bad hair days) and you are rockin’ the look.
The denim girl:
If you are a jeans girl, I am sure you wouldn’t want to give them up even for a few months. It’s your signature look, right? So invest in some pregnancy denims with those nice flexible broad bands and they will carry through your entire term! Pair them with some girly tops or go rock chic with a leather jacket… just stay true to your look and you will be most comfortable.
My personal favourite the “Empire Line Dress”:
This look can go from day casual to evening glam. Yes you can look absolutely glamorous even in your heaviest final days. The empire line, shows off the smallest of your waist (yes you still have one!) and that beautiful ample bust line. I promise you will feel absolutely sexy, beautiful and womanly in this number.
The wrap dress is only second to the empire line. A beautiful wrap dress is great to take you from work and dinner. You can wear this one throughout your pregnancy – all you have to do is just keep changing where you knot the dress. The dress keeps growing with you and gives a beautiful shape all the time.
If it’s too hot for denims, all you gotta do is switch to maternity leggings. They can be as cool as denims (cooler in fact)! Pair these with some flowy tops and little printed dresses and you are ready to go. Comfy and funky all in one.
I know you probably don’t want to spend too much on a maternity wardrobe; so all you have to do is change the accessories with the season. Stay on trend with scarves, bags, jewellery, hats, sunnies. Chunky bold colourful jewellery will add style and a ‘cool’ factor to your look. The bigger you are the more chunky the jewellery.. it’s all about creating balance. Get some pretty coloured ballerinas to add some colour to your look.
Lets talk about colour:
Please don’t do black to look slim. It’s BORING!! You are pregnant, you are going to be big and round… enjoy it! Have fun with it! Wear ‘your’ colours. Treat yourself to a colour session, so you know which colours love you back. You will feel assured about what you are wearing and can step out confidently in ‘your’ colours.
All in all, enjoy your new body, be healthy, love your little bump and just be true to your inner style diva.
Loads of BIG hugs … xx
