For example, a floaty figure skimming maxi dress is the perfect way to disguise any unwanted lumps and bumps. This gorgeous Maternity Black Aztec Bandeau Maxi Dress is a prime example, it is bang on trend with it’s monochrome aztec pattern which will make you stand out in any crowd while covering and flatterning at the same time. This dress is available at New Look and is a snip at just £22. It is just the type of dress I’d take to a festival!
On from festivals to festivites. We are slap bang in the middle of wedding season and if you’re lucky enough to get invited then a maxi dress is perfect wedding attire. This stunning Florence Maternity Dress is the ultimate glamour maternity dress, with it’s high neckline, gathered styling and maxi length. It can be bought from Isabella Oliver, a little pricey at £205.99, but so worth it and it comes in scarlet or cobalt blue.
Then from spcial day to every day, there doesn’t have to be a reason to wear a maxi dress, it’s just a fabulously comfy addition to your wardrobe for every day wear. Just look at this Special Day Maxi from Boden, the prefect way to celebrate your bump in style. It has a neat, knotted detail at the bust and a tie detail at the back. It will fit you throughout your pregnancy and can be yours for £89
Then, staying with every day wear, a new style of maxi dress has emerged on the high street, and that is the vest dress such as this Mamalicious Black Yasmin Maxi Dress from New Look, it’s simple and classically elegant but, a word of warning, this dress is not for the faint hearted. It is figure hugging and there’s nowhere to hide any bits you’re not best pleased with, it’s designed to dress your bump rather than hide it and it’s a steal at just £22.
Maternity fashion and style goes hand-in-hand with celebrity maternity fashion and style, naturally. There are some stars who get it so right and there are those who get it horribly, horribly wrong.
Someone who rarely gets it wrong is Halle Berry, and here she is looking fabulous and glamorous at a recent awards ceremony. She has, so far, not put a pregnant foot wrong in the style stakes. You could recreate her look with ease for that special occasion and, looking as she does, why wouldn’t you want to?!
At the other end of the scale we have Kim Kardashian.
Oh my goodness, Kim’s pregnancy must be the most talked about celebrity pregnancy ever and for all the wrong reasons. She has just not been able to get to grips with maternity fashion at all, as shown when she stepped out in this horrendous, for want of a better word, tent dress. You would think that with access to the amount of money she has and a clutch of stylists never more than a phone call away that she couldn’t help but get it right but it just goes to show, money can’t always buy style!
