*I usually share outfits that emphasize flattering an apple shape, but while I’m pregnant, I’ll be featuring outfits to inspire a stylish pregnancy.
Some tips on having a stylish pregnancy but staying comfortable
- When in doubt throw on a dress. It’s one piece, there’s no uncomfortable fabric gathering at your waist, you don’t have to struggle to put on tights or pants, and it flatters your baby bump to wear one long piece of fabric.
- Keep the dress form fitting. From my experience, bodycon and tube dresses look much more flattering than fit and flare style dresses. Having that fabric taper back in at the knee helps you not feel like you’re even larger than you actually are.
- Keep the dress midi. For comfort and for a more flattering outfit, I’ve found that dresses right below the knee work best for pregnancy style. The above the knee dresses tend to even go shorter with the belly now present, and the maxi dresses tend to overwhelm my petite frame. If you’re on the taller side, maxi dresses would work for you.
- With the weather heading into warm spring, whenever you can, throw on some slip on shoes/sandals. Less bending toward the feet. With your growing belly, you’re going to want to pull out all your slip on shoes.
- If you feel like your face is extra puffy (me!), just throw on some shades and a hat. Tada! That’s my tried and true pregnancy style picture secret. I’m always wearing a hat and/or sunglasses.
