While you relish the nine months of bonding with the tiny human growing inside of you, dressing your bump can be quite the task. “Do I have to wear boring clothes? Are there any maternity outfit ideas that suit my style?” These are the common questions that you might probably ask yourself.
The good news is that maternity styles have evolved and many Indian celebrities are at the helm of this change. From bodycon to roomy dresses, there are many bump-enhancing silhouettes that these famous mums have adopted and you can also add them to your maternity wardrobe.
From casual to sexy, and elegant, here are six maternity outfit looks that will make you look the most stylish mum in the room.
The OG of maternity fashion, a maxi dress is one style trend that never goes out of fashion. It’s available in various colours and patterns and is by the far the most preferred clothing for expecting mums. Actor Kajal Aggarwal believes so too. If you are not fond of bright colours, go for a darker shade like the soon-to-be-mum and Singham actress. They are easy to carry, comfortable, cosy, and provide ample space for the bump.
Most importantly, maxi dresses can be worn in all seasons with a few switch-ups. During summers, just put on the dress with a pair of long earrings and let the flowy structure catch the breeze, and during winter add a jacket or an overcoat to stay warm and cosy.
Wear it as a sophisticated layer or for work. These shirts are a closet class and will serve you well during pregnancy. Just look at how comfortable mumma bear Neha Dhupia looks. These shirts are comfortable and you can wear them through all stages of pregnancy.
Spruce up your look by throwing in a pair of denim jeans or shorts to the mix and minimal accessories of your choice. You can also follow Neha’s style and keep the makeup and accessories to a minimal. Put on your sunglasses, and off you go! Looking chic and trendy as ever.
Stepping out for a lunch date or errands but don’t know how to put together a look that’s equal part versatile and roomy? We got you. Try pairing an oversized t-shirt with black and stretchy biker shorts. This look will give your bump enough room to breathe and the bright t-shirt colour will instantly boost your mood.
Take inspiration from supermodel, Ashley Graham, and can complete the look by wearing minimal accessories and sunglasses. Opt to keep your hair open or tie it into a high ponytail. From lunches to sundowners this look will make you look pretty cool.
This is another noteworthy addition to your maternity wardrobe. This fitted silhouette is celebrity-favorite, Lisa Haydon approved and is perfect for flattering your bump. These dresses are made of super-stretchy materials and accentuate your curves as well as the bump. Wear it for going out in the evening-type of occasions. To spice up the look like the Queen actress, add a pop of colour to your lips and maybe skip the accessories?
This is probably one of the looks that requires the least amount of effort, but still makes a lot of impact. It’s perfect for days when you are feeling super-lazy but still want to dress in something stylish.
Athleisure wear has taken the internet by the storm and you see almost every celebrity, such as the queen of Bollywood, Kareena Kapoor Khan flaunting their cutest pair of workout sets almost on a daily basis. Plus, this attire hardly requires any thought. Follow Bebo’s steps and just throw on a set, wear the jacket, and you are all done. Athleisure wear is mostly lightweight and has subtle details that up the style quotient by quite a few notches.
If your motto is comfort over everything then you can consider powering up your dressing game with breezy kaftans, just like Neha Dhupia. These can double up as traditional wear and make for a great style statement. Kaftans are fuss-free and offer a lot of space for movement. Pair it with a stylish bag and some beaded juttis.
If you want to wear something easy-breezy, then pick up a mini flare dress with a floral print. This minimalist and cheerful look offers comfort that you crave during the nine months and look how glamorous new mum Evelyn Sharma looks in her mini flared dress. If your dress is a little on the brighter side then you can stick with accessories with muted hues. Pick up a fancy pair of earrings and sneakers of your choice to finish the look. A look like this one can work pretty well for multiple occasions and will go a long way in your closet.
We hope that our list of stylish maternity looks helps you show off your glorious bump with elegance. Irrespective of the style that you choose to go with, ensure that your clothing is comfortable and you have lots of space to breathe.
