Dressing a pregnant belly during the different stages of your buns in the oven journey can be equally exciting and challenging. When your bump is starting to morph into a large beach ball between your elbows and your friends suddenly decides to throw you a shower, dressing up for the occasion doesn’t have to be a bother. Even when all you have are oversized shirts and lived-in maternity yoga pants, it is not too late to get some party-ready clothes that are as fabulous as they are relaxed and comfortable. Here are some looks you can steal for your baby shower:
- Dressing up on a warm weather requires pieces that are light, breezy, and loose. You don’t want to be miserably enduring hot flashes in the wrong dress during your baby shower! For a boho-inspired look, pair an embroidered smock dress with some flat booties and accessorize with a wide-brim hat or tasseled crossbody bag to keep the vibe going. You may even upgrade the look to fit cooler temperatures by adding a pair of tights or leggings for warmth.
- Are swollen ankles and legs keeping you from wearing short dresses? You can always conceal them with a maxi dress. Long dresses are great not only for keeping your problem areas hidden, but for creating a longer and leaner look to balance out the big bump on your mid-section. Finish the look off with a nice cropped denim jacket and some strappy flats. On-trend accessories are also nice upgrades to your look, like statement earrings and similar pieces.
If you must wear maternity jeans, style up by pairing them with a loose tank layered with a robe or kimono-style topper. Blazers, bombers, and cropped moto jackets are also great to wear with maternity jeans for a more casual, laid back vibe.
