Maternity Style: Icons and TipsThursday, September 19, 2013
I'm almost in my final trimester now! One thing I've learned about pregnancy style so far is that it's constantly changing - and I don't just mean fashion trends, but finding what works for YOU. There are days I don't want to wear anything but my maternity leggings, and then days I realize I need to get out of my outfit rut!
When your body changes so fast that it's difficult to even recognize yourself in the mirror and the morning sickness has you throwing up everything, and your skin begins to take on a sick shade of green...
... It's important to remember to love who you are and be happy in the skin you're in. And sometimes that takes doing little things for yourself like getting a fresh haircut or blowdry, a mani/pedi, or a trip to Sephora for a makeover - these things can all do wonders.
Finding a good maternity style for yourself can also help in this department. And that can mean looking to someone who's done it right for inspiration. After browsing through tons of pics of good and bad maternity style, I've identified a few of my favorite "maternity style icons" and some tips we can all pick up from them.
NICOLE RICHIE - Casual Bohemian
Think: Hats, scarves, and funky accessories like colorful clutches and bangles
Nicole Richie is someone who got casual, comfortable everyday style during her pregnancy right. Check out her empire-waist dresses in comfortable modal material, accessorized with colorful clutches and simple jewelry.
Think: Casual, loose tops + Jeans, and big comfy scarves
Take a cue from Jess Alba's style file and try layering big scarves and blazers. You can keep the look chic and clean by keeping your hair up in a stylish, sleek bun.
VICTORIA BECKHAM - Chic Sophisticate
Think: Lots of black, blazers and big bags that camouflage the bump.
Victoria Beckham stuck to basic, slimming black and didn't mind sticking to what worked, often repeating outfits that did just the trick.
Hope you enjoyed this little "maternity style session" as much as I did putting it together! I'll
be posting more looks soon!
