Trendy Maternity Clothes for an On-Point Pregnancy Wardrobe
June 28, 2021
Make no mistake: Just because you’re sporting a growing bump doesn’t mean you have to give up cute, stylish fashion choices for nine months. We’ll be the first to agree that all those changes your body is going through aren’t always glamorous (or fun!). Be that as it may, hiding away in clothing that doesn’t fit or flatter your blossoming curves is not the solution to your maternity fashion woes. Our confidence-boosting suggestion? Snag a few articles of trendy maternity clothes that make you feel amazing about yourself and your changing body.
We’ve rounded up some trendy maternity clothes to keep your look on point—plus a few pieces that are truly timeless. (Meaning, if another baby comes around in a year—or five—you can wear them then too!) From trendy maternity dresses to catwalk-worthy separates, here you’ll find stylish clothing for every shape and budget.
Let’s start from the top—with tops! Trendy maternity shirts are made to show off that baby bump in style. When shopping, look for soft, comfortable fabrics that feel nice against your skin, in colors and patterns that flatter your unique shape and complexion. That way, you can wear them over and over again and feel beautiful every time. After all, pregnancy is relatively short (even if it doesn’t feel that way now), so you’ll probably want to scoop up a few great signature pieces rather than an entirely new wardrobe.
