Flaunt your bump in style

There’s a new trend in maternity wear. Instead of skin-tight, clingy apparel, pregnant gals are going with the flow — flowy maternity clothes, that is. Check out the latest in flattering, loose-fitting clothes that promise high style with comfort.

For her second pregnancy, Kourtney Kardashian bucked the super-tight Hollywood trend, opting instead for blousy tops, pleated shift dresses and gauzy pantsuits. Embrace the move toward less-constricting maternity wear and try some of these new, chic looks.

Pleated dress

At the Nokia Lumia 900 launch last September, Kourtney sported this fabulous orange pleated dress. With the brilliant color and simple design, this little number is perfect for brunch, dinner and every event in between. (Photo: Mr Blue/WENN.com)

Get Kourtney’s brilliant look with the Donna Morgan Long-Sleeve Pleated Maternity Dress ($130, A Pea in the Pod). The bold sapphire blue is a gorgeous alternative to basic black. Wear it with the sash belt or — like Kourtney — wear it without.

Little black dress

We enjoyed watching adorable Reese Witherspoon carry her third child, Tennessee James. The bubbly blonde wore a fab pink, loose-fitting dress to Easter services and this elegant LBD to a private party given by Sir Paul McCartney. (Photo: B.Dowling/WENN.com)

Copy Reese with this Seraphine Luxe Black Lace Cocktail Dress ($209, Seraphine Maternity). The flattering A-line cut doesn’t cling to the hips, and the separate silk satin belt shapes this fine dress into a glamorous empire-line cut.

Maxi dress

Nick Lachey has said that his wife Vanessa Minnillo was the most beautiful pregnant woman in the world. The first-time mama-to-be was beautifully attired throughout her entire pregnancy. She easily pulled off the fitted maternity outfits, but she looked relaxed and gorgeous in the boho-chic maxi dress she wore to a Disney ABC Television Group Party in Beverly Hills.

You can steal Vanessa’s artsy look with the Jessica Simpson Short-Sleeve Uneven Hem Maternity Dress ($60, Motherhood Maternity). For “maxi”mum comfort, pair the easy-to-wear floral print maxi dress with ballerina flats. Or go Hollywood and add a pair of sky-high heels (like Jessica Simpson) or cowboy boots (like Camila Alves).
