First of all, I want to preface this by saying I’m not pregnant haha! (I think my mother-in-law just had a heart attack reading that headline – I’m getting married in 2 months so that could throw a spanner in the works!)
BUT I have quite a few girlfriends who are, most of whom are going through it for the first time, and along with the growing tummy, morning (and afternoon and evening) sickness, the craving and all the exams and scans, you have to find new clothes to FIT! All of that over the Silly Season too.
Luckily, EziBuy have a gorgeous maternity range and they’ve asked me to style up a few outfits that could work over the silly season and well into summer!
Casual Christmas Party
SHOP THE LOOK: Next narrow band maternity leggings | Straw fedora
You want comfort, but style too – this great TeeShirt Dress gives you both! Style it down with some leggings, trainers and a fedora hat for a weekend outing or a BBQ Christmas Party – the colour is even on theme!
The gorgeous draping around the sides can either help to hid the bump if you haven’t announced your news yet, but as your bump grows, this dress will accommodate it, without being too tight. The bonus of this dress is that you can also dress it up, like so……
The Smart/Casual Party
SHOP THE LOOK: Next Maternity tee shirt dress | European Collection necklace | Next slouchy clutch bag | Costa Rica block heel
Take this dress in black and add some smart accessories and this is perfect for the work Christmas Party. Depending on how good you were in heels before you got pregnant, be careful with the height you go! These block heels are solid enough to give you a firm base and balance, while have enough height to do the job a heel is supposed to do! (extend your legs).
Add a long-line necklace to draw the eye up and down your body, and a larger clutch to balance out your growing belly and you are good to go!
Bling it Up for New Years!
SHOP THE LOOK: Next Maternity sequin vest (singlet) | Next Maternity rinse slim leg jeans | Next novelty zip top clutch | Peep toe heels
What better time than Summer to rock a little glitter – this great singlet (vest) from Next is perfect for a New Year’s Eve bash of any description. If you have a flash Christmas party to attend, this could also do the job for that too. Have some fun with accessories – this cute clutch will certainly be the talk of your outfit at any party!
So there are a few outfits for the silly season if you have a growing belly! Just remember, no matter what size your tummy is, accessories make the outfit! Be comfortable and be stylish.
Until Next Time,
