When pregnant, some women believe that they will not be able to wear the clothes they already have. But maternity fashion presents a variation of stylish looks. We just need to look at our closet with different eyes.
After all, you don’t have to spend a lot on new clothes that will have a short lifespan. That’s why I’ve separated 5 key pieces that work well during and after pregnancy!
They are timeless, uncomplicated clothes that you may already have in your closet. Check out:
- Basic black leggings
First the darling leggings! Its elasticity and versatility also ensure its presence in maternity fashion.
Plus, the high waistband allows you to wear it over the belly or tucked underneath, whatever you like.
The piece goes well with jackets, dress shirts and accessories. This makes the look more elegant.
- Tight knit dress
Becoming a mother doesn’t mean changing your style or dressing a certain way. The tip is: hug your belly, show it to the world.
For example, the midi rib knit dress is a must have in every closet. The bonus is the elasticity that allows you to use it before, during and after pregnancy!
In maternity fashion, the piece is perfect for having a fair shape, which values the belly. The dress goes well with sneakers or block heels.
- Basic overalls
The jumpsuit is also a wild card that saves those days when the look doesn’t work out. The crossed model is chic and super current.
Very practical for breastfeeding, thanks to its modeling.
- T-shirt that stretches
A good t-shirt is always welcome in our wardrobe. Even for maternity fashion.
The t-shirt is malleable, accompanies the growth of the belly and enhances the silhouette.
The possibility of combinations is immense: from basic jeans or with more elaborate pieces for a hi-low look.
- Loose parts
The crossed dresses are charming and good allies of the big belly. With a loose fit and tie, the dress is comfortable and, above all, enhances the silhouette in the right places.
Pregnant women feel more heat, so loose and cotton pieces are perfect.
Also, you can use them during and after pregnancy. Just adjust the band according to your belly size!
- Invest in overlays
The third piece is also a great style trick that every pregnant woman needs to know.
After all, as the belly grows, other parts of the body also gain voluptuous shapes, such as the hips. So use this feature that elongates the silhouette and hides what you don’t want to highlight.
By the way, this trick is for life!
Blazer, kimono, parka, jackets, vests can be combined with the overalls, ribbed dress and other pieces that we mentioned in this post.
Extra tip: pant extender
The extender is the only piece you will need to invest in especially for pregnancy.
It works as a pants and shorts adapter. The extender has multiple levels of adjustment and comes with three mesh abdominal bands that serve to hide it.
So you can enjoy your jeans even during pregnancy.
