Pregnancy comes with a lot of big decisions. The last thing you want to worry about is what to wear. Take stock in these tips and you’ll be sure to look your best while flaunting that baby bump!
Being a fashionable mom-to-be is easier than you think. All it requires is that you listen to your inner fashionista and avoid these top 5 fashion mistakes.
Forgetting your personal style
Don’t start wearing tailored maternity dresses if your pre-pregnancy wardrobe consisted of jeans and flowy tops. Find maternity clothes that are the style you love, but cut to fit your pregnant body.
Waiting too long to buy maternity clothes
You will be more comfortable and get more bang for your buck if you buy clothes that fit well before you start popping out of them.
Buying all your maternity clothes at once
It is impossible to tell exactly how your body will look at 28 weeks when you are at 12 weeks. Buy a few pieces as your body changes, but hold off on buying everything at once (especially with maternity bras).
Wearing large “tent-like” dresses
Avoid the tent look by buying clothes that fit and gently hug your growing bump. Look for details like an empire waist with a tie back or side-shirring to give your body form and style. The pictured LAUNDRY by Shelli Segal maternity dress (Pea in the Pod, $195) is belted to give your body shape and definition.
Not pampering yourself
You will feel more put together and sexy if you indulge yourself a little and get a pedicure and a fabulous haircut.
