bohemianLooking your best is always important, but no more so than when you’re pregnant and going out for a night on the town. Whether you want to highlight or hide your growing tummy, there’s no reason to throw style to the wind when you’re pregnant; instead, follow these tips, and you’ll look sensational with baby on board.

V-necks are very flattering

Try a V-neck style that skims the collarbone or reaches the décolletage. Avoid plunging necklines or any style where you’re falling out of the dress or top.

Catwalk colors add a fashionable touch

To be ultra trendy, watch the avant garde fashion parade on this season’s catwalks. Note the key colors, and try to incorporate them into your wardrobe.

Flattering silhouettes for your new shape

Empire dresses that are fitted just below the bust, cut shorter in the waist, and then A-line out will camouflage bigger waists and wider hips.

Colors that minimize and minimize

Wear black and darker colors to look pounds lighter or bright, bold colors to draw attention to your bump.

Form fitting undergarments for the new you

Form fitting undergarments are a must. Invest in underwear and bras that fit your growing body.

Tailored shoulders to help you look your best 

Jackets, blouses, and dresses with tailored, broad shoulders and detailing on the upper half will look good.

Hemline lengths that flatter your shape

Wear floor length maxi dresses, or if you’re wearing something that’s shorter, make sure your hem falls at the thinnest part of your leg, either just below the calf or just above your knee.

Fabrics to emphasize or minimize baby on board

If you want to highlight your bump, wear clingy fabrics. If you don’t, stay away from bulky fabrics and fabrics that hug your torso.

Accentuate the positive

Whether it be your eyes, your hair, or your wrists, now is the time to draw attention to your best features. Wear accessories like bracelets to highlight your pretty wrists or earrings to make your head stand out. Flattering makeup will accentuate your face.
