Recently, it was confirmed that the cutest couple of Bollywood, Genelia and Riteish Deshmukh are expecting their second baby this year. And from then onwards, we just could not take our eyes away from the glowing mommy-to-be.
In a star-studded wedding reception of Bipasha Basu and Karan Singh Grover. A heavily expectant mom-to-be Genelia looked adorable when she stepped in with hubby Riteish Deshmukh, to wish Bips-Karan. While Riteish looked dapper in a white bandhgala jacket, Genelia looked a bundle of joy and was all smiles for the paparazzis.
She looks absolutely adorable, confident and oh-so-chic in her carefully chosen outfits. Her maternity style is simple, strikingly beautiful and very comfortable.
So, here we have a list of the wardrobe essentials of the bubbly actress that a mom-to-be can take inspiration from.
Tunics are flattering, feminine and oh-so-stylish for a mom-to-be. Just look at the tunic tops and dresses that Genelia D’Souza sported during her pregnancy. She looked splendid in all of them. A tunic is a great choice for expectant mothers as it cinches at the waist creating a shape. And it also provides plenty of room for your growing belly. Pair your tunic tops with leggings or maternity jeans and walk like a diva in flats or kitten heels.
For a casual evening, stretchy leggings, maternity jeans, yoga pants and palazzo pants are a must-have in your wardrobe. Look at the different ways Genelia paired her palazzos and leggings. They are super-comfy and chic, perfect for the times when you want to choose comfort over style. Pair them with loose tees, tops or tunics and you are all set to run errands, watch a movie or hang out with your friends.
A maxi dress is a must-have when you are expecting. Look at the beautiful white maxi dress that Genelia wore at Arpita Khan’s baby shower. Despite being simple, it looked chic and classy and gave the mom-to-be enough room to move around comfortably. Choose fabrics that are airy and comfortable in pretty colours and patterns. Add a chic cropped jacket, flats, a beautiful clutch and you are good to go. A maxi dress in any pattern or colour is perfect for every stage of your pregnancy.
During the third trimester of her pregnancy, Genelia was seen wearing anarkali suits in most of her public appearances and every time the glowing mum-to-be had us swooning over her. They are a lifesaver when it comes to dressing up the bump for weddings, pujas or any other functions. Choose lightweight materials like cotton for maximum comfort and empire-waists to look chic and elegant.
You can never go wrong with a cardigan during your pregnancy. On days when you are feeling a little tired, just dress up in a simple tank top with your favourite pair of jeans and throw over a cardigan. That’s not all, you can even pair it up with your maxi dresses or palazzo pants. Look at Genelia, she looks so adorable even in her ordinary clothes. Look for cardigans that are chunky and unstructured to give you more flexibility.
A woman does not need to give up on her fashion identity when she is expecting. Take a cue from Genelia, who looked both sexy and sweet in short dresses. Pick anything from shirt dresses to shift dresses that work well with pregnant women. An additional benefit of buying a short dress is that you can continue wearing it even after your pregnancy. Any silhouette will work during early stages of pregnancy; however a flowy silhouette is best for the later stages of pregnancy.
At Maria Goretti’s book launch this month, the cute mommy-to-be Genelia looked stunning in a green shirt-stlye kurta and a white palazzo. All those moms-to-be, if you do not like wearing anarkali suits, the loose kurtas are a must-have in your wardrobe. They are lightweight and available in a variety of designs. Pair it up with leggings, palazzos or just wear it as a dress.
Scarves are one of the most versatile accessories to spice up any of your outfit. During Arpita Khan’s baby shower, Genelia was seen wearing a simple white maxi dress from Grassroot by Anita Dongre, with a complementing blue and white scarf, which was a very beautiful addition to perk up the outfit. Scarves are a layering must-have for pregnant women. It not only adds colour and pizazz to your outfit, but also makes you look longer and leaner.
