Glowy skin, hair on point, and the best accessory one could ever ask for - that pregnancy bump! With everything going for you, perhaps the only dilemma is how to own and enjoy your personal style.
Thankfully, there’s a range of maternity clothing available both online and offline that caters to the modern mom; from well-fitted pants to nursing tops to dresses and more. Our pick of the lot? It has to be oh-so-timeless maternity dresses, designed to glorify that pregnancy bump.
Though eternally in style, dresses are having a renaissance moment since the last ten years. Today celebrities like Kareena Kapoor Khan, Beyonce, and Victoria Beckham chose to flaunt their pregnancy and maternity style is all about well-fitted dresses enhanced by the right accessories. Fabric and silhouette play very important roles here - a great way to pick a maternity dress is to look for soft fabric for breathability and a silhouette that doesn’t constrict the bump.
Need some help around the world of maternity dresses? Here’s a quick breakdown on dressing for the occasion!
All Set For The Holiday
The glorious days of pregnancy can be best enjoyed with a carefree holiday! Whether you’re off to the hills or the beach, a quaint countryside or a buzzing city, dresses should be the number one item on your packing list.
A floor-length dress is both elegant and laid back. We’re partial to the Maia Maxi Dress for its comfort and undeniable hint of sassiness with those ruffles!
Got a 9 AM gynaec appointment and a 4 PM board meeting? When you’re on the go, all you need is comfort, with a bit of style. For working moms, there’s nothing like the ease of soft fabric like modal, in a timeless hue that you can style in a multitude of ways.
The L.B.D Inky Blue is a great all-rounder dress. With its soft fabric and design detailing, it’s one of those classic pieces that are a must-have in every wardrobe, pregnancy or not.
Out With The Ladies
Girls’ Night Out or In? You need a chic yet cozy option. A fitted wrap dress works wonders here - easy to adjust on the go, yet sophisticated enough to be dressed up for that faux pina colada!
We’ve got our eyes on the Cayo Shirt Dress. Mixing two trends in one, it’s a super wearable piece that works brilliantly from day to night.
On A Culture Trip?
For those days filled with gallery visits, brunches and soirees, you need something that looks impeccably stylish. Often, it’s a simple silhouette that does the trick. Pick a minimal outfit and accessorise it for the occasion - and voila! You’ve got a keeper.
The Rivera Midi Dress is one such piece. With its picnic checks aesthetic (very on-trend!) and empire waist line, this is one of those pieces, with its minimal detailing, you can wear for a long, long time.
Got a thousand and one errands, topped off with a shopping spree? That’s no excuse to rely on your lounge pants / pyjamas! Capture easy breeziness & style in one go with a pure cotton dress. Not only does it allow you to breathe freely, it’s texture adds a little character that polyester just can’t match.
Nothing says “Saturday” to us like the Colette Midi Dress. With its classic silhouette in a smashing colour, it’s distinctive yet casual. Perfect throughout pregnancy as well as during post-natal too, those buttons come in handy when it’s time for nursing!
