Maternity clothes that fit YOUR style
April 2, 2008
Just because you are dressing for two does not mean you have to completely change your personal style. Did you love hip, trendy fashions before you were pregnant? You can still look just as hip and trendy now that you are sporting a bump. Are you a working woman that prefers tailored pieces? You can maintain your professional style throughout your pregnancy.
Here are some tips on translating your personal style into your maternity wardrobe.
Trendy style: Maintain your hip look by splurging a pair of designer maternity denim, such as Habitual, True Religion or 7 for all Mankind. Pair this with a bump-hugging wrap top or a graphic tee. For a dressier look, look for printed frocks or a tunic dress. Beyonce (pictured) maintained her glamorous and trendy maternity style by wearing sequined dresses, patterned scarves and bump-hugging looks.
