My maternity style has really changed this pregnancy. Instead of splurging out like I did with my first pregnancy I have gone for a simple wardrobe with a few lovely more expensive pieces thrown in.
If you are anything like me then you will have umped about what suits you and after my previous pregnancy resulted in an emergency c-section I have that dreaded pregnancy overhang to contend with too.
I have a few tips to keep you looking great and feeling fab rather than frumpy.
Number 1 tip:
Stick with a few colours. This pregnancy I have gone for navy as my main colour and then I can jazz this up with a few great accessories.
This lovely necklace from Mama Jewels is my everyday wear and this statement piece from Not on the Highstreet is when I want to wow my outfit up.
Number 2 tip:
A decent pair of maternity jeans can be dressed up or down. I have gone for a bootcut rather than a skinny because I need that tailoring around bump. At nearly 23 weeks the previous overhang is still showing and although I look pregnant I don’t really want to emphasise the lower half of my bump. These classic style jeans are perfect.
Number 3 tip:
Of course splash out on colour too. I try and keep my outfit muted and dress up with a new changing bag and my new blue glitter converse. This blue Funmum top is fabulous for added colour but this crimson Arabella B vest is perfect for those pregnant towards this summer months too. I am quite partial to a few stripes too.
So there are my 3 maternity wear tips. I would love to hear yours.
