It is said that becoming a mother makes a woman feel complete. So, as this beautiful dream turns into a reality for you, why not accept it wholeheartedly, and flaunt it fashionably? It is time that the thoughts of dressing up in loose and ill-fitted garments should be thrown out of the window. Now is the time to accept new trends and styles.
Take a look at some of the best tips to flaunt your baby bump with fashionable elegance, with some style statements from the stunning Bollywood, sports and television divas.
To accentuate your curvy and fuller figure further, without looking chubbier, it is best to opt for dark colours like red, orange, black, maroon, olive green, navy blue, etc for a night out. For the daytime, you can opt for lighter fabrics in pastel shades.
Coming to clothes, let us start with the most important and most commonly used piece of garment - a lose and comfortable dress. It is always best to choose dresses that enhance the bust line, which would make you look more curvaceous. Opt for short dresses in flowy fabrics with long sleeves as they would make those flabby arms disappear. Empire-line dresses and skater dresses look fashionable and chic. Such dresses flare out near your stomach and help you to camouflage the bulges. You can also go for layers to camouflage certain areas. Remember, it is best to pick dresses that are comfortable, airy, and fall right above the knees.
Maternity wear is not always ugly. Fashionable maternity jeans with expandable waistline are easily available these days. These make you look comfortably stylish. Expandable waistline works perfectly well even as you sit down. You can even go for fashionable dungarees, which would also provide support to your baby bump.
Just like jeans, the maternity skirts would also make you look fashionably sexy and beautiful. Keep your wardrobe stocked with some versatile colours like brown, ash grey, black. Such colours gel well with every occasion. You can also go for printed skirts.
Wear nice dresses in dark shades that are slightly airy around the mid-section. Tunics are one of the best style statement for all seasons. Long sleeves and deep neckline will help you to highlight the right places only. You can also go for kaftans as they are classy and comfortable. A nice and light makeup to go along with the dress makes you look as fashionable as a happy mom-to-be can look.
Avoid stilettos during your pregnancy. Wear a nice and comfortable pair of sneakers, chappals, sandals or oxfords. Style them according to your outfit. Colourful and trendy pumps are also a great option.
You can accessorise your look with beaded neckpieces and large hoop earrings. This would add an extra oomph factor to your dress as well. Accompany it with a simple yet trendy watch and a complementing clutch, and you are absolutely ready to go.
Motherhood is an experience of a lifetime. Now is your time to flaunt your baby bump in a fashionable way. Get ready to dazzle everyone with your trendy and gorgeous mom-to-be appearances.
