For many millennials, Vanessa Hudgens has been a fashion icon since her debut in High School Musical 18 years ago (ouch!). Now as the Princess Switch star embarks on her newest journey as a mom-to-be, she’s bringing her unique casual-cool girl style to maternity wear. From on-trend colors to timeless silhouettes and luxuriously soft fabrics, her wardrobe choices have gracefully complemented every stage of her pregnancy.

Drawing inspiration from her chic aesthetic, we’ve curated a collection of Hudgens’ most beloved maternity outfits and crafted a straightforward guide on how to recreate them. Whether you opt for the original pieces or explore budget-friendly alternatives, you can channel her effortless flair with ease.

Vanessa Hudgens Maternity Romper

Running out on spring errands or lounging around the house, Hudgens is ready for anything in this light-brown playsuit. You can find a similar romper from Ingrid + Isabel at Target for a steal, or treat yourself to this luxe-seamless version made with lightweight, 4-way stretch Brushed Jersey fabric from Bumpsuit. If you prefer leggings over the biker shorts look, PinkBlush maternity offers a seamless, ribbed v-neck version that goes all the way to the ankle.

Buy It: $34, Sleeveless Unitard Maternity Jumpsuit by Ingrid + Isabel,
Buy It: $105, The Cindy Bumpsuit,
Buy It: $55, Beige V-Neck Seamless Ribbed Fitted Maternity Jumpsuit,

This mom-to-be isn’t just a actress and singer she’s a entrepreneur too. At the launch of her Caliwater Kids brand Hudgens stepped out in a fun and flowy baby doll dress from Zimmerman. While the original item will run you a pretty penny, you can find a similar style, albeit not the same print, at PinkBlush or Lulus. Make sure to order a size up when ordering from Lulus to accommodate the length needed for your growing bump.

Buy It: $1,100, Zimmerman August Ruffled Tiered Gathered Floral-Print Crepon Mini Dress,
Buy It: $86, Pink Multicolor Floral Ruffle Balloon Sleeve Maternity Dress,
Buy It: $70.40, Exquisitely Adorable Multi Floral Tiered Ruffled Mini Dress,

Vanessa Hudgens Maternity Leggings and Tee

Sometimes you just can’t beat the comfort of a classic leggings and t-shirt combo. During a recent adventure at Disneyland, Hudgens rocked black leggings and a simple Disney tee, along with high socks paired with adorable Minnie shoes. For similar maternity leggings that won’t let you down when you are on your feet all day, check out TheRY’s Saviour Maternity Legging. The medical-grade compression fabric helps improve circulation and increases healthy blood flow to reduce tired legs. Pair them with the brand’s high-top compression socks to save your swollen ankles. Complete your casual ensemble with an ultra-soft maternity tee from Seraphine. The brand’s jersey fabric is super breathable, and side slits accommodate a bump of any size.

Buy It: $179, The Saviour Maternity Compression Leggings,
Buy It: $45, The Comforter Maternity Compression Sock,
Buy It: $49, Jersey Short Sleeve Maternity T-Shirt,

Vanessa Hudgens Maternity Date Night Dress

For a night out with her new hubby, Hudgens slipped into a classic chocolate maxi dress from Bumpsuit. The Off The Shoulder Evening Dress is made with the brand’s smooth, slinky jersey knit and double-lined for extra support and a feminine fit. For budget-friendly shoppers, PinkBlush Maternity offers a similar style (without the slit or ruching) under $50.

Buy It: $195, The Off The Shoulder Evening Dress,

Hudgens turned heads at the 2024 Academy Awards with the surprise debut of her baby bump. For the affair, the French Girl actress donned a black custom-made Vera Wang turtleneck gown with a hand-draped sash accent at the waist and elegant train. While this dress is one of a kind you can find a similar look with Bumpsuit’s Soft Rib Turtleneck Long Sleeve Maxi Dress. Prefer to ditch the turtleneck but add drama with a train? PinkBlush Maternity’s Black Long Sleeve Photoshoot Maternity Gown is the perfect pick.

Vanessa Hudgens After Party Maternity Dress

Who said maternity wear has to be modest? Hudgens heated up the 2024 Vanity Fair Oscars After Party with a sexy, sheer black off-the-shoulder gown with minimal coverage. While her look is straight off the runway from Alberta Ferretti’s 2024 Resort collection, there are equally as hot looks available for those without runway access. Bumpsuit offers a similar Off The Shoulder Soft Mesh Top that will allow you to bare your bump which pairs perfect with the brand’s Soft Mesh Skirt for a seamless ensemble. If you love the mesh look but would prefer a little more coverage, PinkBlush Maternity’s Black Shimmer Mesh Long Sleeve Ruched Maternity Midi Dress provides a full slip with a little extra sparkle on top.

Buy it: $89, Off The Shoulder Soft Mesh Top,
Buy it: $89, Soft Mesh Skirt,
Buy it: $79, Black Shimmer Mesh Long Sleeve Ruched Maternity Midi Dress,
