The 9 rules of maternity style

The 9 rules of maternity style
1. Layer, layer, layer!

Cardis, jackets and wraps are essentials for changeable weather, and they don’t need to be maternity wear.

2. Accessorize in style

Keep your outfit simple but personalise it with a bright bag, a hat or nice shoes.

3. Invest in good maternity jeans or trousers

Because you know you’ll be wearing them after the birth too (sigh).

4. Be realistic

Those Kimmy K heels are really not the best option when you’re preggers. Trust us in this one.

5. Go high street

Some of the most popular stores on the high street are Penneys, Topshop, H&M, Dorothy Perkins and New Look and all have great maternity collections at fab prices.

6. Beg and borrow

Maternity clothes are only worn for a short period of time, so secondhand is often a good option. Or borrow some pieces from a friend.

7. Dress up

A wrap dress is worth its weight in gold. Glam it up with accessories for a special event, keep it simple with tights for work, or layer over jeans.

8. One size up

Sometimes just going up a size or two can turn normal clothes into maternity wear.

9. Show it off!

This is the one time in your life where you can be proud of having a big belly. Enjoy it!
