Every mom-to-be has a hard time finding stylish clothing that complements her growing bump — even celeb stylist Rachel Zoe.
“Believe me! Figuring out what to wear during this time may seem like a small detail, but it can make a huge difference in your comfort and mood,” she shared recently on her Web site.
Zoe, 39 — who’s expecting a baby boy in March — also offered up some great maternity style tips and chic outfit ideas. Check them out below!
Invest in a well-designed pair of jeans. As opposed to former generations, we are fortunate to live in a fashion-forward age that accommodates styles for every body, size and situation — pregnancy included. For example, both 7 For All Mankind and J Brand make maternity jeans (praise the denim gods!), which are a flawless starting point for a prego-chic look.
Explore all free form bottoms. Leggings, maxi skirts or full length dresses are perfect for pregnancy. Take your pick of the three styles and then you’re ready to tackle the waist up! For tops, I recommend long tunics, flowy blouses and ponchos to flatter your mom-to-be figure.
Shift your focus to footwear. You can stay stylish, yet at ease in a pair of wedges or flats. Try either with any of these combinations — long tunic and leggings, poncho and flare jeans, tank and maxi skirt — and you’ll be pregnant per-fec-tion!
Accessories are key. Don’t forget to complete your modern maternity look with a big tote bag and a pair of do-not-disturb oversized sunnies to hide fatigue!
