If you’re fashion-sensitive the most common wardrobe fear when you first get pregnant is that you will have to abandon your personal style. The threat of jumbo loose slouchy dresses that make you look double your size is everywhere and you might think that your stylistic choices are quite limited. Of course comfort is everything (you’ll find out yourself that you will just cannot stand anything too tight or not cozy enough). Yet, maternity clothes are very advanced these days and with some smart shopping you’ll be able to be and feel yourself.
Ok, cope with the fact that you won’t fit into your favourite high-waisted skirt no matter how thin you are for a preggo -in the near future it will be yours again.
After 7 months of pregnancy my advice is not to spend much money on strictly maternity garments because soon they will be useless to you, unless you find something that will be a wardrobe staple after giving birth as well, like a stretch midi dress that fits your bump. Which brings me to my second advice:
Opt for clothes that underline your preggie silhouette and not huge maternity blouses -they will make you look thiner. The closer to the skin the better.
Last but not least: follow those habits from b.p. (before pregnancy) routine that uplift you. Is it a nail job or your monthly visit to the hair salon? Go for it. Do you feel energetic and confident to wear a pair of your beloved high heels? Don’t be afraid to do it. Want to follow a trend? Work your way to be comfy. Getting pregnant doesn’t mean that you’re all of a sudden a different person. You’re just two of you now.
I found a super cool cropped maternity pants at Asos, meant to be paired with those Migato fringe loafers.
A Yiorgos Eleftheriades stretch top and a masculine long Tara Jarmon jacket I own since ever. On top, an extremely warm mohair-wool blend oversized cardigan by H&M.
