Our friend Carmel at Bella Figura Maternity gave us some quick style tips for pregnant mamas.
Moms-to-be can still be fashionable during pregnacy by picking pieces that work with their body shape while taking advantage of the changes in their body, for example the chest area is the first one to get noticed– choosing a v-neck that flatters that area makes a big difference. For the growing belly, a stretchy material that molds the shape without looking tight can be very flattering. Accessories are also good way to update a look. Most pregnant moms tend to dress in black for the slimming effect but putting some rhinestones or flower pin, a printed scarf or belt works
For fall and winter, trendy items include: corduroy skirts,tops with shine material from Michael Stars. outfits that lay softly and not too tight , framing the body and that extra bump.
When asked what three items a mom-to-be must have in their wardrobe, Carmel says:
A printed or plain wrap dress goes a long way, a good pair of jeans that are not too tight or loose and of course, a pair of black slacks that you can wear casually or for work.**
