Cool looks for hot mamas
July 14, 2007
Blame the raising temperature, the pregnancy hormones or that bun in the oven but it can be hard to stay cool when you are pregnant. Try wearing clothes that are lightweight, flowy and white to beat the heat.
Save your jeans for when the sun goes down and pull on light-weight khaki shorts or capri pants to keep you feeling fresh. Pretty skirts are a great way to keep your cool while still looking stylish. A simple maternity sundress is always a fashionable choice and you don’t have to worry about constricting waistlines.
Ditch the black and lighten up by wearing white or pastel-colored tops to keep the sun at bay. There are great choices in tank tops and light-weight tees that would look great paired with your maternity shorts or skirts.
Look for fabrics made from natural materials, like rayon, cotton and linen, because they are lighter and breathe more than synthetic fabrics, like polyester. Tight and constricting clothes do not allow the air to cool you off so try on clothes to ensure a proper fit.
