Celebrity maternity style on a budget
January 13, 2009
Do you love the maternity style of your favorite celebrities, like Angelina, Jennifer Garner and Angie Harmon, but don’t have their padded bank accounts to buy high-dollar designer fashions? Fret not, pregnant mama, and check out our tips on how to get celebrity maternity style on a budget.
Copy their coordinated style: Many celebrities have high-dollar stylists that expertly coordinate and put together their clothes in a way that keeps them looking hip and polished. That’s right, half the battle in looking hip is knowing how to coordinate your clothes. Copy their look by buying knock-offs at your favorite budget-friendly store and coordinate them as they did.
Splurge on basics; skim on trendy items: Forget about blowing your budget on that one funky printed tunic top like Gwen Stefani. Spend your money wisely — on that great-fitting pair of jeans, those well-tailored work pants and bump-flattering top. Skimp on trendy pieces or accessories.
Shop eBay: You can find designer maternity items at a fraction of the place through consignment shops and eBay and – when you are no longer pregnant – you can sale them!
Budget shopping secrets: Comparison shop online for those must-have designer items to get the best price. When shopping at pricey maternity boutiques, walk past the high-dollar items at the front of the store and peruse the sale items at the back of the store. You may get lucky and find a real steal.
