When you are pregnant it can often seem like a challenge to look stylish and chic without looking a bit frumpy.
However, there are ways to still look excellent when pregnant. One important thing to bear in mind it that just because you are pregnant you don’t need to completely overhaul your style; unless you want to off course, you don’t have to look like a hippy earth mother just because you are carrying a child. You can look good and like you even though you are pregnant.
While in the past maternity wear has had a bit of a reputation for being a bit frumpy and horrible nowadays there is a much better range of cheap maternity clothes UK available for expectant mums. There has also been a number of celebs who have been showing off their pregnancy style in recent months so it is easy to take inspiration from then when planning your maternity wardrobe.
One thing to learn from the celebrities is that you can embrace your new shape, long gone are the days when you had to cover your body with a shapeless tent. Instead, celebrities like Natalie Portman, Kate Hudson, Rachel Zoe, Victoria Beckham and Penelope Cruz have all shown that you can look great while having a baby. In fact all you have to do is look at Natalie Portman in her gorgeous purple bump fitting gown at the Oscars or at Victoria Beckham’s smart navy shift at the Royal Wedding to know that you can embrace your new shape and look great.
One trend that the celebrities all seem to channel when pregnant is the maxi-dress, this season is all about the maxi and it is a perfect look for expectant mums. It can cover the bump but at the same time show that you are pregnant and is also really comfortable which is important when you’re pregnant. It can be dressed up or down and will also be bang on trend this spring/summer.
However, if a maxi-dress isn’t your style you can channel Victoria Beckham and go for stylish knee length dresses that skim the bump and show off your legs. While, for work a good pair of maternity trousers styled with a pretty blouse or shirt is simple yet smart.
