In a woman’s life, pregnancy is a phase which not only brings excitement but also brings about a unique glow on her face. You and your partner start gearing up for the most demanding and rewarding job of a lifetime (parenthood) but you also have a whole new excuse to go shopping, not just for baby gears, but also for maternity clothes.
Dressing the right way during pregnancy will definitely enhance the pregnancy glow. Clothing for pregnant women has come a long way in the last few decades. Attractive & fashionable clothing is widely available at affordable prices. Take a bit of time to find some flattering clothes for your new body.
Here are few tips for pregnancy fashion that will make you feel as good on the outside as your baby is doing on the inside.
1. Dress for your shape
Just because you are pregnant, doesn’t mean you will have the same shape as the next woman. Take time to know your body shape, look around and try on different styles. Wearing a loose-fitting dress and pinching it in just above your bump is a subtle way to show off your figure. It makes you look cool, and slim, and the bump is not that obvious to see which makes you comfortable and relaxed, yet very stylish.

2) Opt For Fun Prints
A little polka-dot dress proves that a pregnant lady does not have to stick to block colours. Make the most of your new shape by keeping your outfits, super fun.

3) Keep It Simple
For days when you feel like keeping your bump a little more under wraps, you can plump for solid colors. The black shift dress paired with a sleek white coat is chic.

4) Don’t stick to the rules
A pregnant lady in a tight pencil skirt is not what you immediately think of as a flattering maternity wear but clearly the rule-book needs to be thrown out of the window. When fitted and styled this well, an expectant mother can pull off anything.

5) Don’t forget an LBD (Little Black Dress)
Every girl needs a little black dress in their wardrobe and there is no difference for a lady with a bump. Go off shoulder and show off those shoulder bones.

Don’t forget to accessorize! A big pair of earrings, a fabulous necklace, or a beautiful bracelet can pull together a look like nothing else and the best of all; they will fit all through your entire pregnancy. Wear only one BIG accessory at a time, and keep everything else simple and understated.

7) Great Layers
Capes, shawls and ponchos are great layers that you will never outgrow. Also, it’s not a bad idea to pick up an inexpensive lightweight, waterproof poncho at a camping or sporting goods store for those unexpected showers.

8) Trade High Heels for Trendy, Sturdy Flats
Wearing the wrong footwear during pregnancy is a bad idea. Not only will your feet swell as you approach your delivery date, you will become more unstable as the baby grows and your tummy gets larger. However, this doesn’t mean you have to settle for fuddy-duddy shoes.
As your pregnancy progresses, invest in some attractive flats that are comfortable and roomy and harmonize with the rest of your maternity wardrobe.

9) Don’t Forget Your Hair, Nails and Feet
While you’re pregnant, it is easy to forget about yourself in all the fuss over the upcoming addition to your family. However, it is important for your emotional and physical well-being that you continue to feel good about how you look. Take the time to get a flattering haircut, a manicure or a pedicure and you will be amazed at how much better you feel about your changing body.

10) Get yourself a sleek coat
A long coat is just the ticket to conceal your pregnancy if you’re not keen to showing it yet. With this stylish number, it is very difficult to tell if you are pregnant.
Therefore, with a few of these simple wardrobe tweaks, you can be a hip mama and look fabulous during pregnancy.
