Q&A: Dressing to Hide Pregnancy?

I'm not ready to tell people that I'm pregnant yet. What clothes can help hide my growing belly?

In the beginning, if you don’t want people to know, be sure to have a lot going on up top. I guarantee that if you try big earrings, red lipstick, or a chunky necklace, no one is going to notice your tummy. Go for lots of beads, chunky platform shoes, unbuttoned cardigans, and jackets. 

Today’s larger clutches are also great because you naturally hold them right in front of you. And prints and floral patterns make perfect baby camouflage! Dark, looser bags are also good for hiding.

Put your attention on everything besides your belly — head, toes, hair. Maybe it’s time for a new hairstyle! These are the same techniques you’ll use in late pregnancy to reenergize your limited wardrobe.
