Look feminine and chic with dresses in forgiving silhouettes.
A stretchy dress can be great to show off your bump, but if you feel too conscious for it, resort to chic dresses with forgiving silhouettes. You don’t have to hit the maternity section right away as there are stylish dresses out there that can fit on your bump. Shift dresses, tent dresses, A-line dresses, empire-waist dresses, and even bohemian dresses can be stylish and functional enough to make your daily looks feminine and chic. Since the silhouettes float away from your body, you can camouflage your bump and while making your style comfortable and effortless.
Pick stretch fabrics that will keep you comfortable without compromising style.
Many women make the mistake of buying larger sizes in regular clothes or sticking to a uniform of a few basic maternity tops worn with jeans. If you’re a fan of structured and form-fitting silhouette, changing your style a bit may seem comfortable. To get started, pick stretch fabrics that look fashionable for you until the time comes that you need to shop in the maternity section. For the first few months, your belly will be more a food baby girth. You can opt for a larger size in jeans and avoid anything too snug until you really need maternity pants. Remember, the key to pregnancy dressing is to not compromise on style.
Trick the eyes with prints and patterns.
Wearing prints and patterns on your outfits can be a means of adding some personality to your street looks. Like Anna, you may opt for a colorful floral print dress in an off-shoulder style to add some sexy and feminine touches to your looks. If you’re not a fan of prints, textured fabrics like lace patterns can be great to add some interest to your maternity looks while keeping you fresh and breezy.
Create a leaner silhouette by wearing a chic topper.
Wearing a topper of a different shade from your outfit will create a vertical line, therefore making you look slimmer than you actually are. Though you can’t hide your bump completely, you can make it less obvious while keeping your looks fashionable. By heeding these tricks from Anna, you’ll be able to look your best even you’re expecting.
