Being pregnant doesn’t mean you can’t keep up with the trends and feel fashionable. The key to dressing modern and sexy during pregnancy is to pick out the trends you like and adapt them to your new body. Check out these tips to up your pregnancy style quotient.
Comfort and Show Some Skin
The first thing that is important is comfort during pregnancy. Whatever you wear must be comfortable for you and the growing baby. So if you feel comfortable showing some skin by wearing sleeveless or low neckline especially if you are small-chested, being pregnanct offers the best chance you’ll ever have to forego the padded bras and flaunt cleavage. So take advantage of this fortuitous occasion and wear scoop-neck tops or dresses.
Wear Skinny and look gorgeous
If you enjoyed wearing skinny jeans before you were an expecting mama, don’t be afraid to wear comfortable tight-fitting pants now just because you are pregnant. Many maternity lines are now making stretchy, super-comfy (and chic!) skinny jeans and trim pants that will fit and flaunt your new curves.
Choose Snug over Bulky
Reaching for bigger clothes to hide your size sounds like a good idea, but it only contributes to a bulky look. Instead, slim down your silhouette and emphasize the features that aren’t expanding with snug-sleeved tops, skinnier pants, and button-down shirts or blazers left unbuttoned. Try outfits that stretch to fit your form — they’re sexy and feminine. If all else fails, break out a crisp men’s dress shirt and pair it with leggings or jeans and a fitted T-shirt or tank underneath. This look is the perfect mix of sexy, modern, and classic style.
Go for Color!
Don’t limit yourself to black and neutral tones — color is an essential part of the modern maternity closet. You’ll feel happier when you’re wearing clothes that aren’t drab. But, if you’re really a color-phobe (or if you’re feeling budget-conscious), just throw a bright top or try some Ankara tops to complement an all-black outfit.
Gypsy flattery dresses in long and short are also great and can be worn with a small jacket to the office or any outing. They are great must have.
Get creative and Decorative
Perk up a staid wardrobe with just a few decorative elements, such as ruffled trims or embroidered or beaded accents. Just be sure to stick with things that you’ll be able to wear more than once without feeling too conspicuous.
Try Some accessories and trimmings
One of the easiest ways to add dimension and flare to an otherwise simple ensemble is to put on your favorite accessories and jewelry. Try long, dangling earrings and lariat necklaces to de-emphasize fullness in your face. Wear a patterned scarf in your hair, put a jeweled cuff on your wrist, or carry a chic handbag. Better yet, if you’re not going to be on your feet all day, throw on some fun open-toe sandals or sling-backs. Sexy shoes can instantly perk up practically any outfit.
