Once upon a time, the fashion choices for pregnant women revolved around concealing your baby bump. Thankfully, those days are long gone. Having another human growing inside you is a miracle in itself, so why should we hide this wonder? A baby bump is special and should be flaunted in every way possible. Since pregnancy has its fair share of struggles, maternity fashion should not be one of them. On the contrary, trendy styles to accommodate your growing belly should be embraced and used to make your pregnancy journey even more exciting!

Since the lockdown, the emergence of pregnant women has seemed to multiply! A lot of families took this opportunity to do some family planning, even our favourite celebrities such as Anushka Sharma, Kareena Kapoor Khan and Gigi Hadid. If you too are planning for a babe, we are going to show you some inspiration on making maternity outfits enjoyable. For those not expecting, you can still be inspired by these cool styles. 

So ditch those oversized dresses and sweatpants and get ready to sport some chic ensembles. Of course, without sacrificing your comfort and keeping your personal style in mind. Much to your surprise, you might already have some of the items in your closet. To show you how to do so, we have taken inspiration from pregnant fashion influencers to show you how it’s done.

Scroll below for 6 of our favourite maternal styles to show off your cute bump:

1) Colourful Dresses

A dress is a pregnant woman’s best friend. The comfort and flow they provide make it easy to wear, and we understand that. Be stylish and comfortable in your trusty dress by opting for a fun print or pattern. Mitali Sagar rocked her pregnancy by channelling some Frida Kahlo vibes in her abstract-patterned dress, pearl headband and oversized earrings. All these little elements, along with the vibrant colours of the dress work just well making for an elegant and stand out maternal look. Furthermore, the rope belt adds structure to the outfit, highlighting her beautiful baby bump.

2) Denim Overalls

Your pregnancy journey is incomplete without a pair of denim overalls. They look super cute, especially with a growing bump emerging from it. A timeless trend; even the late Princess Diana sported denim overalls when she was expecting. Take inspiration from Mariyah Ahmed who has gone for a classic pairing of white, along with a matching bow on her ponytail which looks beyond adorable with the entire look. Perfect for a day in or even for grocery runs around the town. A pair of dungarees always complement the growing belly. You can change up the style and try on some different variations of overalls instead of the conventional fit. Add on some sneakers or flip flops and you will be at ease all day long!

3) Leggings

When jeans get too rigid and you can’t fit into your pants anymore, you will always have your leggings to fall back on. Even those not pregnant rely on leggings for comfort and style. The stretchy material makes it easy to fit into for days you feel bloated and struggle with swollen feet. Sharon Fonseca makes pregnancy look sexy in her all-black attire, not that pregnancy isn’t sexy as is! We often show our midriff in crop-tops, so why not do the same with your baby bump? The bicycle shorts are on-trend and she’s converted an oversized black shirt into a front-knot crop-top. A super easy look to pull off; you probably already have these items in your closet. Add on some simple accessories and you instantly have a fashionable maternity outfit!

4) Silk Dress

We have seen silk take over the fashion world in the last couple of months, particularly silky slip dresses. And much to our luck, this fabric looks fabulous and classy as maternity wear as well. When you need to go somewhere nice and are unsure of what to wear, just slip on an elegant silk dress that will beautifully capture your silhouette. The softness and lightness of the material will keep you easy breezy and ensure you look chic. Alternatively, you can also style it more casually like Arshia Moorjani. She has worn a simple, oversized t-shirt over her dress with a front-knot. This instantly transformed her outfit into a more relaxed and laidback one. Moreover, a silk dress will match well with any pair of shoes, be it heels for the more daring or sneakers for the cautious.

Officially 22 weeks 🤰🏽💖 (I was 21 weeks in these pics!) Baby is the size of a coconut this week and I am feeling SO differently than I did just a few weeks ago. Heres what I am feeling like these days: • Less nauseous. Soooo thankful for this! • Deff more hungry but can only eat small meals otherwise I feel like my food is just sitting in my throat. Small, more frequent meals for me & baby. • Still get out of breath pretty quickly and have to take more breaks when working out/walking. • Using bathroom countless times during the day and night😂 • Heartburn! This is a new one for me but I started experiencing heartburn very recently. • And finally, I have felt small movements from baby girl! I’ll talk more about this in another post but wow, it’s such a beautiful feeling 💖😭 #sograteful #pregnant

5) Maxi Skirt

It is always easier to find tops in pregnancy than it is to find a good pair of bottoms. So when pants or jeans get too stuffy, skirts feel magical. And there are so many different styles to choose from! You have your timeless pleated skirts, ruffle skirts to printed versions like florals or ones decorated with lace. We love how Tamanna Roashan has nailed the colour-blocking trend for her baby shower and donned a mustard yellow skirt along with a blue crop-top. The skirt looks flowy and easy to be mobile in throughout the day. Moreover, a skirt allows plenty of space to accommodate the evergrowing bump!

The most beautiful day I could have ever imagined. Welcome to our Baby Shower 🥰🧿🌺🍋🤲🏽 • Thank you for the outpouring of love and blessings on my stories yesterday, I’m so happy you loved it 🙏🏽 It was my dream to finally visit Santorini for our babymoon… but since that couldn’t happen, we decided to bring Santorini to us with a Mediterranean themed baby shower uniquely fused with the two elements I love the most: #evileye and natural #crystals 💛 This day truly represented who I am as a spiritual being, especially during this pregnancy, and radiated all the positive and loving vibes in every single detail. Over the next several days I’ll be sharing photo albums filled with highlights from our very intimate shower, which was in two parts: 1) the “Drive-By” masked event in the front for a few of our close friends and local family members who we’ve not seen in forever (since quarantine!) to enjoy some special boxed treats and gifts from us, and celebrate this wonderful time with us safely and responsibly, followed by 2) the Pool-Side event in the back for my in-laws who are already in regular close contact with each other to enjoy some light appetizers without exposing any extra risks to them or to us since they would have to remove masks for that part 💙 I took a lot of time and care into planning something safe, unique, and memorable for them and for me, and I’m so thankful to the following people and vendors for wholeheartedly helping me bring this event to life! ~ Planning & Styling: @socaleventplanners Design, Florals, Backdrop: @hellokismet Specialty Rentals: @archiverentals Tenting: @tajmahaltents Signage and Vinyl: @starsanddreamsco Balloons:@balloonavenuela Evil Eye Favor Boxes & Masks: @freshalamode Evil Eye treats: @dipd_n_dripd Custom Tile Cookies: @mahnjaandecorates Cake & Indian Desserts: @somethingmeetha Appetizers: @appetize19 Iced Tea & Lemonade Cart: @lachaicart Shaved Ice Cart: @thejollysheep • Photo & Video: @encorstudio • I LOVE THESE PHOTOS! Can’t wait to post the rest, but here’s just a little introductory taste for you guys for now 💙💙💙

6) Jumpsuit

You want to look great but nothing fits and you’re having a wardrobe crisis? Make way for a jumpsuit or playsuit. When pregnant, some days you simply don’t have the time or energy to piece together an outfit. However, that should not be an excuse for you to look sloppy. A jumpsuit in neutral or monochromatic colours can be your saviour. It is a minimalist-chic look that emphasizes your baby bump and looks trendy. Fitness guru Emily Skye is ready for date night in a black and white, striped, fitted jumpsuit. The cut-out and front-knot are little details that make the outfit more fun. Rock this fashionable look and you will be the hottest mama wherever you go!
