In honor of Maternity Week, today’s Fashion Friday post is highlighting what else? Maternity Wear!
Just because you are pregnant doesn’t mean you have to make a bee-line for Motherhood or Pea in a Pod when you enter the mall. You can still shop in your favorite regular retail stores, you just have to know what to look for.
Maternity Wear Essentials:
1. Leggings: You want something that can work with you as your belly grows. And you don’t have to stick with basic black– print leggings are also acceptable as well. I wouldn’t go with Fire Engine Red or Zebra Print (for obvious reasons), but still spice it up a little. Here’s some inspiration from Beyoncé (sans the leather jacket–too hot for that, lol).
Her Blue Leggings against the basic black really provide a pop of color without screaming, “Look at Me! I’m pregnant ya’ll” Subtly Sexy, Mommy Chic. Check out these maternity Asos Leggings.
2. Maxi Dresses: Posh & Pregnant Summer Mommies….It’s gonna be a hot one! Stay Cool My Friends. Maxi Dresses are breezy, easy, simple to accessorize. Maxi dresses are my pregnancy staple. Old Navy is having a great memorial day sale (Women’s Maxi Dresses included).
3. Empire Waist Tops: These tops accentuate your growing bosom and skim over the belly for a very flattering silhouette–A go-to for Halle Berry.
4. Comfortable shoes: Whether its sandals, flip flops, combat boots, flats, or loafers…please be comfortable. I know we still want to be sexy and dress like we aren’t pregnant..but me,I know my truth, and I know that heels and pregnancy don’t mix for me. More power to those who can do it but I am already naturally clumsy… couple that with the off-balance equilibrium provided by pregnancy, and that’s a recipe for disaster. And PLEASE do not get caught with the Kim K. Feet. We swell–accept it, embrace it.
What are some of your staple pieces for pregnancy style?
