The holidays are right around the corner and I am here to share with you a few tips for looking chic while accommodating a growing baby bump. The holiday season is a joyous occasion but with that comes the stress of holiday parties, gift giving and family get-togethers. Add into that trying to dress a ginormous belly and suddenly you are running for cover to those favorite sweat pants.
t Dressing for the holidays doesn’t need to be a horrible mess on your bedroom floor. I know it’s so easy to feel like a frumpy mess or as big as an elephant when nothing in your closet seems to fit or feel flattering but finding that perfect outfit can be easier to do with a few quick tips.
t Here are a few things to remember the next time you are getting ready for that next big holiday shindig!
1. Formal occasion
t An occasion dress is a definite must-have during the holiday season. Choose one with sequins and an empire waist to feel dressy yet comfortable during that next fancy dinner, Christmas concert or wedding party. The fabric and detailing will have you relaxed knowing you perfectly fit the part.
2. Work party
t Reach for your favorite cotton dress for your next party at the office. Whether it’s your own office or a loved one’s, it is great to have a dress in a nice breathable fabric that can easily be dressed up with a chic blazer, neutral heels and glitzy accessories. You will look your best while still being comfortable during that evening out.
3. Holiday colors
t Sometimes the best ensemble we put together is one that doesn’t even require any maternity pieces. A stretchy body-con dress and cardigan in holiday shades is perfect for a special party or evening out. Cover up with black nylons and black shoes to elongate the legs while still keeping warm at the same time. Don’t forget your favorite accessories to finish off the look!
4. Body-con dress
t When you are pregnant, a snug body-con dress can feel as comfortable as your favorite T-shirt. It hugs the curves, covering that bump, which can be so wonderful when you are out enjoying a night of festivities. Reach for a red, green or gold dress to catch the holiday spirit and dress it up with glitzy accessories like a pearl necklace, gold belt and your favorite bold lipstick.
5. Dressed-up casual
t Nothing beats a pair of maternity jeans when you are pregnant. Choose a dark pair like black to keep the style on the dressier side. Throw on a comfortable cowl-neck sweater and drop necklace to add a bit of interest to the look. If you really feel like wowing your friends and family, braid your hair into an eye-catching style and throw on a bright red lip.
