If you did not know I am a mother of two beautiful girls- Taylor and Sky! Pregnancy was just as amazing. And I definitely dressed the same way as I do now. Dresses, leggings, and knee high boots were my best friends! I added accessories and I was good to go! It's that simple. But of course, while pregnant most women tend to go for a more comfortable and laid back look when it comes to fashion. You should be comfortable but you should not sacrifice your style in the process. Especially in today's world- people are embracing their baby bumps! No more big clothes to hide the growing belly- it's all about showing it off. And that's how it should be.
I've have a few friends that are currently pregnant and they have hit me up asking- girl I need help! How am I supposed to dress with this growing belly. They want to stay fly and I hope to inspire all my lovely expecting mothers out there! I want to give a special shout out to Anique, Sky J, and Kat Ponds! Congratulations on your pregnancy and now let's get you all dolled up!
The main rule to remember is when you are pregnant the difficult thing is not what to wear- it's where you can buy it! Lol. Maternity fashion is exactly the same as when you weren't pregnant. The goal is to always look longer and leaner, right? So all the same rules you have been following apply to maternity style as well. Follow some of these rules and you will always be on top of your maternity style game.
1 Layering is always good. Wearing a blazer or jacket with it left open will elongate your torso! You can add a scarf with the ends laying loosely to add to the effect.
2 Don't be afraid to glam it up. You can still wear short dresses and show some leg!
3 Leggings will be your best friend! They are comfortable on your growing tummy and they also make your legs look longer and slimmer. You don't want anything on your body to grow (or appear bigger) except your belly. Lol.
4 Sometimes maternity clothes can get boring, so always accessorize!
5 Dresses will become your new best friend as well- more so than leggings! Dresses are so comfortable and easy to dress up. Add accessories and a cute bag and your set!
6 Don't forget about jeans! There are so many brands of maternity jeans out there. My favorite place to buy them from was Target!
7 Everything you wear DOES NOT NEED TO BE MATERNITY! I was able to wear a size or two up and fit comfortably! You can get away with wearing bigger jackets, leggings, and especially dresses!
8 And mama, black is still your best friend! Lol.
And just like my blog is intended to do- inspire you from celebrity looks, I've found some of the hottest celebs that kept up their fly looks throughout their pregnancies! Halle Berry, Kourntey Kardashian, Christina Milian, and Kimora Lee Simmmons. Other include Sara Jessica Parker, Jennifer Lopez, Elizabeth Hassleback, Katie Holmes, and many more! Of course the stars have stylist...and guess what- so do you. Because I'm here for you! I really hope this posts helps you ladies! ;)
