Pregnancy is undoubtedly one of the most special phases of your life. You’re bringing life to the planet! What could be better than that? Apart from the ecstatic celebration, over pampering and extreme possessiveness, you also encounter a plethora of changes. There are physical and hormonal changes which might make you insecure and moody, but indulging in fashion and dressing up instantly reverses that! It is observed that women tend to hide behind oversized tees, baggy kurtas and mommy jeans. Anti-fits indeed are all the rage this season, but not if you have an ulterior motive of taking cover. Instead of dousing yourself up with layers of fabric, why not devour the fact that you’re pregnant and show it off to the world in all its glory? Here’s how you can do it:
The Shift Dress
Shift dresses are a safe bet because they hang perfectly and can be paired with a lot of things. They’re neither too body-hugging nor too baggy. You can add combat boots and a scarf for a funky look or leggings and a jacket/coat for a classy look.
The Bodycon Dress
If you are absolutely comfortable in your skin then a bodycon dress is the ultimate way to accentuate those curves. It looks sophisticated and is the perfect day-to-night dress. In the day, pair it with sneakers and in the night, throw on some pretty thong sandals and stud earrings.
A saree is probably the most flattering garment for an Indian woman. And instead of hiding that baby bump with the pallu, show it off! Take some inspiration from model Carol Gracious who walked the ramp for designer Gaurang being 6 months pregnant. Breaking stereotypes is what it is about.
Wearing baggy clothes should also be done in a strategic way to achieve the perfect look. Layering tops with spaghetti tops and jackets is what you should be looking it. It will make the perfect outfit for the day and will keep you comfortable as well.
The Red Carpet Look
If there’s a cocktail party that you have to attend and you’re (luckily) expecting, then don a well-fitting gown. The gown along with the pregnancy glow is going to make you look like a vision. Who better to look up to than the sensational, Blake Lively.
