Dressing up with a growing belly can be challenging especially when regular clothes don’t fit anymore. But don’t worry, help is here. We’ve rounded up stylish outfit ideas with pieces that will get you through your pregnancy and beyond.
Comfort is key when you’re expecting, but that doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice style. Pick roomy dresses (like a shift dress) and tops to accommodate your growing belly. Use a kimono wrap as a cover up and create numerous looks by mixing them with other pieces of clothing. These are smart non-maternity purchases that can be used during and beyond your pregnancy. Don’t forget to accessorize as well. Thin belts will allow you to create definition and shape. Finish off with a pair of sandals to complete your weekend look or wedges to give you extra height with support.

Here’s another take on comfortable maternity style. They are very simple yet very chic, perfect for the daily hustle of city life. Since these looks consist of basic key pieces, they’re really very easy to recreate. A stretchy black dress can do you no wrong, thanks to the slimming effect of the color. Throw on a tailored blazer to keep your casual tee + jeans ensemble looking sharp. Lastly, everyone needs a pair of comfortable sneakers, pregnant or not.

Maxi dresses are a pregnant woman’s best friend. It‘s great for a casual look as well as for more formal events. Pick one with an A-line silhouette or with an empire cut which defines your shape while offering more room starting right below the bust area. To keep the look casual, throw in a denim jacket.
Chances are, during your pregnancy, there will be at least one important event that would require you to glam up and dress up. In times like these, always go for simple yet classy looks. Shift dresses in fabric that feels thicker and/or looks richer than casual clothing are what to look for. You also need to accessorize accordingly. Just remember to keep it simple.
