9 Tricky Maternity Trends You Can Wear
For the first few months, this little fashion trick is a great way to hide your bump à la Jessica Simpson, especially if you're trying to keep it a secret, says GILT Baby amp Kids's senior buyer Melissa Keswin.
Solids don't have to be your only option while pregnant. Eye-popping patterns, like this jewel-tone leopard-print dress Maya Rudolph wore recently, are fun and often flattering. The key: find a silhouette that's roomy enough for your growing curves but isn't overwhelming (think muumuu).
Understandably, some women are a little shy about showing off their new pregnancy curves. But now (I see you Malin Akerman!) there are maternity dresses made with soft jersey that really hug your body beautifully. I recommend investing in one form-fitting frock that can be paired with a blazer or worn alone – you'll be surprised how often you wear it, says Keswin.
Every pregnant woman should be excited about this cool baggy bottom look (hello, elastic waistlines!). Just pair it with structured pieces on the top to balance them out. And if you are feeling extra brave, like expectant actress Jenna Dewan-Tatum, add a sky-high heel to really spice them up.
Everywhere you turn, women are rocking edgy leather pieces. The good news is you don't have to skip this trend while pregnant. Look for a cropped jacket with an open front (Kristen Bell is a fan!) or pieces with leather accents to channel your inner biker girl.
