Look great Feel Great: Fashion Tips for Moms
Dressing for pregnancy at anytime of the year can be fun—but also a little bit stressful. It can be hard to find maternity clothes that are designed for both comfort and style. Where do you even start? Here are some fashion tips to help moms like you look your best no matter the occasion:
Keep cozy with a comfy sweater
There are versatile maternity sweaters that double as nursing tops, and they pair well with good-fitting maternity jeans and leggings. Choose a relaxed-fit sweater in a minimalist colour and make sure the fabric is super-soft and not itchy. Accessorize with a statement necklace to make your outfit extra festive.
Long cardigans are versatile and will keep you warm while allowing you to cover up if you want to hide any bulges. Try cardigans with a waterfall shape as they are flattering and drape over the hips. As a bonus, you can still wear your pregnancy sweaters and cardigans well after your baby arrives.
Try something versatile and trendy
Have you ever heard of the ‘coatigan’? It’s a combination of a coat and a cardigan, and it’s a stylish solution to the chilly and changing weather. It’s a genius cover-up that will go with your favourite maternity pants or pair of jeans. Look for an easy wrap shape that creates an empire waist for a flattering and flexible fit that will adjust to your bump. This style will work after pregnancy, too.
Don’t forget comfort
- For laid-back parties at home, you can get away with wearing casual nursing dresses accessorized with some jewelry. You might also want to stock up on stretchy and snug pregnancy leggings or maternity pants in neutral colours that will go with any top.
Ensure the best fit
You’ll feel more confident wearing your maternity clothes when you’re wearing high-quality maternity and nursing bras. A good bra is the foundation of a great outfit, after all.
Invest in a special party outfit
If you’ll be socializing throughout your pregnancy, maternity evening gowns and maternity dresses are worth buying. Pick a flattering dress that feels special. When in doubt, go for a bodycon, fitted dress. You can’t go wrong with something you can still wear after giving birth.
