One of the difficult things about dressing during pregnancy is knowing what pieces of clothing to really spend money on. It’s totally easy to dress a pregnant bump in the warmer months. You truly can get the most out of those summer dresses…just slip ’em on and go! Fall and winter dressing is a little more complicated though. Once those temps start dropping, it’s hard to bare the legs.
My first kid was a December baby. She was born right smack in-between Christmas and New Years. Back then, I did an awful job with my style. It was too cold, nothing fit over my belly (my shoes didn’t even freakin fit!), and I gave up and wore my husband’s t-shirts and sweat pants…
Nowadays, if I had to do it all over again, I know exactly what I would spend my money on!
1. A GREAT PAIR OF SKINNY JEANS – Skinny jeans are a must! They can easily be dressed up or down…and with all the different fabric choices available, comfort is definitely key! Style tip: grab a pair or two in a darker denim. The color will help elongate your legs!
2. MATERNITY TIGHTS – Tights are a known way to get extra use of those summer dresses and skirts for fall. Same rule applies for pregnancy.
3. MATERNITY LEGGINGS – Perfect for tunics or shorter dresses, maternity leggings can be great! Style tip: Remember, leggings AREN’T pants…cover up that hiney!
4. RUCHED TOPS – I loved my ruched t-shirts and tops during both of my pregnancies! There’s just something so flattering about showing off that baby bump. Plus, ruched shirts make for great layering pieces!
Are there any other winter pregnancy must-haves? I’d love to hear what you couldn’t live without!
