Maternity Style Secrets Of The Stars
Get a well cut pair of jeans
Jennifer Garner has lived in jeans throughout her second pregnancy and as well as being practical, shows off her beautiful pregnancy figure. The key is to buy a pair of well cut maternity jeans and don't skimp on the price as these will carry you through the whole nine months. Look for high waisted ones like Jennifer wears so you get a clean line under tops and buy either boot cut or flares as this shape will balance out your bump. A flattering pair of maternity jeans can also be dressed up or down using accessories, meaning every event is catered for!
Invest in a maxi dress
Maxi dresses could have been made for mums-to-be as they are so flattering on any size and shape of bump. They come in so many different styles from halter necks to strapless to empire line, that there will be one to suit you at every stage of your pregnancy. Selma Blair, Kate Hudson and Jessica Alba have all been seen out and about and at film premieres wearing them while pregnant and looking like a million dollars!
Although there is a great choice of maternity wear out there these days it is still more limited than your ordinary sized clothes. Rather than scrape around for a new look when you have tried all the different maternity combinations you can think of, just jazz an outfit up with a statement piece of jewellery, a scarf and an amazing handbag. Lily Allen was queen of accessorising when pregnant as was January Jones and Stella McCartney. Accessorising is also great if you have had a bad nights sleep and don't want to think too hard when putting an outfit together. Grab your statement scarf and your good to go!
Little black dress
Us ladies rely on the LBD all through our lives whether we are twenty-one or eighty-one, pregnant or not pregnant. It is our fail-safe which covers up all our lumps and bumps and means you can go to an event at nine months pregnant and still look chic and sophisticated. Minnie Driver and celeb stylist Rachel Zoe are all big fans of this wardrobe saver when pregnant.
