Maternity Fashion: Looking Trendy During Pregnancy

Looking good during pregnancy sometimes seems like a difficult task. Finding the right clothes to wear to fit your new size/shape might not be easy, coupled with the fact that you may have outgrown most of your clothing. For some people, it seems like overnight nothing in their wardrobe fits any longer, and they can’t find anything suitable to wear.

Trendy Look During Pregnancy

For a working mum to be, it could be most challenging, especially if you are working in a corporate organisation. The good news is, it’s not difficult to look good, and it's even possible to keep up with fashion trends while pregnant. Here are some pregnancy essentials and tips to guide you, to keep you looking trendy even till your last trimester.

Leggings

One of the pregnancy must-haves is leggings. Leggings are every pregnant woman’s best friend, not only are they comfortable and easy to wear, they go with almost everything.  You might not even need to buy more when you get pregnant because you can still rock the ones you had pre-pregnancy. They can be paired with tunics, fitted tops and dresses for a casual chic look.

Comfy Shoes

Now is the time to ditch those strappy high heels and stilettos for comfy low-heeled shoes like flats, ballerinas, slips, sandals, loafers, etc.  You can buy neutral colours that can be worn with most clothes, and can still be useful even after pregnancy.
