When Kareena Kapoor Khan was pregnant with her first child, Taimur Ali Khan, back in 2016, she had set the bar high for expecting women with her fashionable sartorial picks. Be it walking the runway with the utmost confidence in a Sabyasachi lehenga flaunting her baby bump, high-slit gowns, baring her bump for an athleisure photoshoot or black waist gown with a lace bodice, Kareena had preferred anti-fits mostly in her first pregnancy for her appearances. Cut to 2020, Kareena preferred comfortable kaftans and co-ord sets for her at-home style and needless to say, in both her pregnancies, every pick was all-eyes-on-me for the mom-to-be! During the second pregnancy, Kareena gave fuss-free kaftans a different perspective as she wears this relaxed silhouette with so much ease at home as she wears it for an evening date or a party.

For Saif Ali Khan’s 50th birthday on August 16, 2020, the second-time to-be-mom, Kareena Kapoor Khan had opted for a V-neck abstract-printed silk kaftan by Rajdeep Ranawat, which she had accentuated with just a pair of earrings. Forgoing additional jewellery, Kareena had kept her OOTN subtle and comfy by keeping her hair tied in a taut bun. Bebo’s kaftan, which was a mix of striped patterns, colour-blocked in grey and beige against the salmon pink base, was paired with a tan waist belt that had cinched her pregnant belly. Kareena’s designer geometric printed kaftan costs Rs 24,000.
For Karan Johar’s twins, Yash Johar and Roohi Johar’s birthday bash, Kareena Kapoor Khan, once again slew in her kaftan look, proving maternity fashion doesn’t need to be boring! Kareena opted for a printed green kaftan which was accentuated with a high bun and the pregnancy glow of the ‘ready-to-pop’ mommy. Kareena reshared some inside pictures from the bash with Karan, Manish Malhotra, Neha Dhupia, Natasha Poonawalla and Nitasha Nanda on her IG stories. To wish Yash and Roohi on their birthday, Kareena had posted an adorable throwback picture of the twins with Taimur Ali Khan as the trio was dressed in traditional outfits. Kareena had written, “Happy birthday Yash and Roohi. God bless you both” followed by heart emojis.
Kareena Kapoor Khan’s love for kaftan has been evident throughout her second pregnancy and her 40th birthday was no different. For the celebrations at home, Bebo had worn a super-comfy minty green kaftan by Anita Dongre. The kaftan was designed with radiant red flowers and a printed forest-green hemline. It had balloon sleeves, Henley neckline with tasselled front and the breezy fabric had made it a perfect choice for the expecting mommy. Kareena had ditched the makeup and accessories for her OOTN and had kept her look simple and stylish. Kareena’s birthday dress costs Rs 19,900 as per the designer’s official website. For the Diwali 2020 celebrations at home, Kareena had repeated the same kaftan and it had made her love for this relaxed silhouette even more evident.

It was Kareena Kapoor Khan’s BFF, Amrita Arora’s 43rd birthday bash at her residence on January 31, 2021, and the mommy-to-be had proved it yet again that she believes in nothing but comfort first. Channelling her love for kaftans, Kareena had opted for a printed ensemble by Rajdeep Ranawat. Kareena’s kaftan had featured V-shaped neckline clashing prints in shades of terracotta, olive green and deep brown which she had paired with a mustard sling bag, sunglasses and a pair of oversized hoops. Her kaftan for Amrita’s birthday bash cost Rs 24,000 and her padded cassette bag by Bottega Veneta costs EUR 2,500, which is roughly Rs 2,20,968. So, Kareena’s overall look for Amrita’s birthday celebration at home cost around 3 lakhs.
During the lockdown 2020, Kareena Kapoor Khan had embraced her love for the easy-breezy kaftans and a proof of it was shared in April by designer, Masaba Gupta. Donned in a bold abstract block printed yellow kaftan with neon pink tassels hanging from the neckline, Kareena’s pick was perfect for the summers. Despite her mom, Babita’s teasing and husband, Saif Ali Khan’s protests, Kareena has been a fan of kaftans and in an interview with Vogue, she had once said, "Shapeless and soft with a zipper in front. A little granny-auntyish, but I just love how comfortable they are." (Also Read: New Mommy, Anushka Sharma Is Back To Her Fit-Self Within 27-Days Of Delivery, Shares A Cute Picture)
