- by Elle J Team
So, you’ve recently found out some pretty exciting news, and the whole journey has you busily gearing up for what’s ahead. While this is an incredibly exciting time for you and your family, we know it can also be a challenging one, as you try to adjust to the changes that start to pop up. With all the little fluctuations around your body, and the need to invest in some new clothes, achieving the perfect wardrobe approach can be tricky. As your body begins to shift, a lot of your usual staple outfits are likely to become difficult to pull off, or even impossible to wear. But that doesn’t mean you can’t dress up your bump and flaunt what you’ve got going on. Take a look at our top tips for maternity clothes to make your baby bump shine.
When you’re planning your pregnancy wardrobe, it’s probably a force of habit that you search for loose-fitting blouses and flowy maxi dresses. Pregnancy is an exciting time, so why not use the opportunity to embrace the bump and your new curves? If you want to follow in the footsteps of celebrities like Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Chrissy Teigen and Kim Kardashian, fitted dresses are the go-to for showcasing the stunning silhouette you’re boasting. These garments are also a fabulous way to embrace the bump and are so easy to dress up for any occasion, or down if you need to.
If you’re on the lookout for a number that’s a little more fancier in taste, we love our Holly Off the Shoulder Maternity Dress. This floral piece is the perfect choice for weddings or cocktail occasions and definitely wouldn’t look out of place at a chic garden party either.
We all know that denim overalls are one of the comfiest wardrobe additions, whether you’re expecting or not. They’re also always incredibly popular in pregnant celebrities’ maternity wardrobes – and for a good reason. Overalls used to be seen as casual wear only, but they have recently started to pop up in more formal settings with tailored silhouettes and plenty of different fabrics on offer. Not only are overalls super comfy, but they are also very adaptable for the duration of your pregnancy.
If you’re planning on running a few errands, you can throw on your denim overalls with a basic tee and some comfy sneakers to get you through the day. But if you’re looking for a functional party outfit, you can also dress up a tailored pair of overalls with a snazzy blouse and a pair of cute pumps. To throw the cherry on top, they’re easy to duo with any style of shirt or tee, so as your baby bump grows you can personalise the look to best suit your shifting shape.
Silk slip skirts
Over the last few months, silk slip skirts have started to pop up more and more on fashion-focused blogs and Instagram accounts. And we can see why.
These beauties are incredibly versatile and can be paired with almost everything in your wardrobe – from tees to blouses and jumpers to turtlenecks. Australian style icon Talisa Sutton rocked the silk skirt trend throughout her pregnancy, pairing patterned skirts with casual white tees and plain black numbers, with delicate blouses and crisp white shirts. These stunners are also super easy to dress up with a beautiful blouse and statement accessories, or they can be dressed down with a casual tee and comfy sneakers.
