During pregnancy, women become rounder than they have ever been. And with nausea and discomfort associated with pregnancy, choosing stylish clothes and dressing up well every day can be quite a challenge.
A few things to keep in mind when you style yourself during pregnancy
• Stay comfortable – This is by far the most important thing to consider when you are dressing up. You cannot look stylish when you are uncomfortable.
• Flaunt your bump – Be a proud mommy and accentuate your shape. As much as you miss your old curves, know that this is a short and precious phase. Make the most out of it.
• Elongate your shape – If the bulkiness makes you feel short, try elongating effects in your outfit.
Here are a few style ideas to help you accomplish the above:
V-necklines will create an elongating effect and draw attention towards your face that’s glowing due to pregnancy hormones.
Empire waist dresses
Empire waist dresses allow you to accentuate your bump and show off that beautiful pregnancy shape. Or you could just tie a belt under the bust to create this effect.
Long Cardigans and Kimonos
Open cardigans, shirts, vests, and kimonos are some interesting ways in which you can elongate your shape. They are also comfortable and chic.
Stretch pants and Leggings
Wearing bigger sizes and hiding your shape seems like a good idea. But in reality, oversized clothes will make you look bulky.
Go for skinny pants specially designed for pregnant women with extra comfort and stretch. Throw over stretch tees that sit on your bump and complete the look with some layering pieces and comfortable footwear.
Eye catchy but comfortable Accessories
If you are not in the mood for dressing up, just put on chunky jewelry, sunglasses or bright colored scarves over your boring outfit to instantly brighten up the whole look. Bags are an easy way to throw some style in. You can also experiment with your footwear. Ankle strap sandals, gladiator flats, patent ballerina flats, printed espadrilles, and neon slippers – there are ample options in the comfortable footwear category.
